Blues Legend
Paul Oscher
down home, gritty, authentic blues...
Paul Oscher

ListenWatchWebsite
Paul Oscher, award-winning blues singer, songwriter, recording artist, and multi-instrumentalist, (harmonica, guitar, piano, melodica, and bass harp), first came to national attention as Muddy Waters’ harmonica player, 1967-1972 following in the footsteps of Little Walter, Junior Wells, James Cotton, and Big Walter Horton. Paul Oscher was the first white musician in the world to become a full-time member of a black blues band of this stature.

While in Muddy’s band Paul toured the US and abroad and played all kinds of venues from the rough and tumble juke joints of the chitlin’ circuit to the major concert stages of the world and during that time backed up major blues artists such as John Lee Hooker, Earl Hooker, Son House, Fred McDowell, Lightning Hopkins, T. Bone Walker, Albert King, Magic Sam and Big Mama Thornton. Paul recorded a number of records with Muddy Waters for the legendary Chess Records label in Chicago. These recordings and live performances would influence an entire generation of young players.

Paul Oscher is the real deal—he learned his blues from the Masters. He plays only the real, unadulterated, down-in-the-alley, gutbucket blues. He is not a retro player; he just plays the blues the way he learned them… lowdown and lonesome and has been doing so for the last forty years.

Swan Songs Fundraiser
for Fayette County

Albert & Gage
Swan Songs

WatchWebsite
The Bugle Boy Foundation is the official Swan Songs Ambassador for Fayette County.
Our goal is to educate the community about Swan Song services and raise money to provide their services specifically to terminally ill residents of Fayette County.

Swan Songs was founded in 2005 and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Austin, Texas that fulfills musical wishes at the end of life by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness. At their request, a favorite style of music or musician is brought directly to the home or facility. The concert allows patient, family and friends to focus beyond the illness and come together through the medium of music.

Tonight Christine Albert, founder of Swan Songs and her husband Chris Gage will perform as Albert & Gage. This Husband & wife duo are fantastic performers. Whether singing in English or French, Christine will quickly capture your heart. Expect to be equally captivated by Chris's musical mastery of guitar, accordion and piano. David Carroll will be joining in on base. Albert & Gage simply put on a Triple "A" performance.

We hope you will join us for a great evening of music in support of Swan Songs services for the terminally ill residents of Fayette County. If you are unable to join us but wish to make a donation specifically for this program you may donate here.
Can't join us in person? Watch the live online broadcast!

Adults Only- Rated R

Rocky Horror Picture Show
Watch
Win VIP 4 A Day pass for two for Best Dressed Rocky Horror Character.

Note: Staff will all be dressed like Pat.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a harmless musical fun—a delightful spoof of Hollywood horror movies and Old Dark House melodramas. A sexy, funny romp through a wild world of camp with a musical score that includes one show-stopper after another. When Brad and Janet, a clean-cut young couple from the suburbs, get caught with a flat in the middle of nowhere, a night at the Frankenstein place changes their lives forever.

This longest-running midnight movie of all time stars Tim Curry as the endearing “transsexual from Transylvania” Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as his hapless guests Brad and Janet, Meat Loaf as motorcycle-riding rough trade and author Richard O’Brien as the hunchbacked butler Riff Raff.

It was the first—and is still the best—interactive movie experience! It's just a jump to the left- then I jump to the right!

“He can kick out the honky-tonk jams with the best of them, and he can tear out your heart with a ballad.” - Houston Chronicle
Mike Stinson
Mike Stinson
ListenWatchWebsite
Five years ago, Mike Stinson took a big chance. After clawing his way to the top of the country music club scene in Los Angeles where he was described by Billboard Magazine as the king of the neo-honky-tonkers, Stinson, who wrote Dwight Yoakam’s stellar “Late Great Golden State,” packed a U-Haul, chucked his place in the West Coast pecking order, and moved to Texas to start fresh.

And Texas certainly had an effect on the cerebral Virginian who called L.A. home for 18 years. He fell in love with the space, the torrential rains, and the laid back feel of his new home, Houston. Immediately upon arrival in Texas he dropped The Jukebox In Your Heart, recorded with Jesse Dayton and his band at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Studios. “No One To Drink With” from the album was voted best song of the year by the Houston Press in 2010. Hell and Half of Georgia, is a mixture of muscular Joe Ely-ish roadhouse bruisers and sawdust-floor tonkers mostly written since relocating.

Fact of the matter is, Hell and Half of Georgia elevates Stinson’s game to new heights. The leader of one of the hardest working bands around, Stinson is winning fans one stellar song and one barn-burning show at a time.

"Chuck Pyle's songs, playing and singing are transporting. If you're looking for top-flight alt-country-inflected contemporary folk... this is it." – Sing Out!
Chuck Pyle
Chuck Pyle

ListenWatchWebsite
Chuck Pyle has won high praise from both fans and peers alike throughout an inspired performance career of over 40 years. When reviewers first gave him the "Zen Cowboy" moniker, he decided to, as he says, "Always ride the horse in the direction it's going," and took the nickname to heart, shaving his head and blending his upbeat perspective with old-fashioned horse sense. He mixes infectiously hummable melodies with straight-from-the-saddle poetry, quoting bumper stickers, proverbs, world leaders and old cowboys. An accomplished songwriter, Chuck's songs have been recorded by John Denver, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Suzy Bogguss. Country fans know him best for writing, "Cadillac Cowboy", recorded by the late Chris LeDoux, and "Jaded Lover", recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker. His music has made him a favorite of Bill & Melinda Gates who have had him play at their home in Seattle.

While fans love his recordings, they adore Chuck's live performance. The first time he made an audience laugh, he was "hooked". A nimble guitarist, critics say his sense of rhythm is more like a fine classical, or jazz, soloist, his songwriting musically sophisticated yet full of uncluttered space. Chuck Pyle came from Iowa in 1965 when, "Boulder was mostly gravel streets", and resides on the front range of Colorado. He does 100 dates a year all across the country, playing festivals and theaters, coffeehouses and house concerts.

Chubby Knuckle Choir
ListenWatchWebsite
Above photo by: Dave Clemments

The Bugle Boy Foundation is thrilled to announce our fifth Talent Trust Recipients and our first band recipients, The Chubby Knuckle Choir! After just one show at The Bugle Boy, we were sold on this funkafied eclectic group. Every member of The Chubby Knuckle Choir contributes their own songs & style. This diversity is brilliantly weaved together and takes the audience on a rarefied genre jumping musical journey that is musically intriguing and fun to watch. So come out and support our 2014 Talent Trust recipients release of their upcoming new album Chubby Knuckle Choir-Reveille and see what all the excitement is about.

The CD gets its name in keeping with the Bugle Boy theme. Womack explains "Reveille" was chosen as a direct nod to the Bugle Boy because the band realizes the opportunities that are available to CKC because of the 2014 Talent Trust. The honor has become their "wake-up call."

"...these guys are so funky, you can smell 'em!"
— Lloyd Maines, Real Life Real Music Festival

“...The result is a delicious musical bouillabaisse of swampy blues, rocking country and R&B. The tasty licks and tangy riffs will leave you hungry for more.” — Hap Mansfield, San Marcos Mercury

The Chubby Knuckle Choir uses an "eclectic mix" of Rock, Country, Americana, Swamp Rock/Swamp Blues and R&B/Soul to mesmerize audiences. The group boasts melodic harmonies and stellar musicianship, which have become a staple of their sound. CKC was recently featured on the syndicated TV Show "Texas Music Scene" hosted by Ray Benson as well as the Gibson Austin Backroom Bootleg Series.

Two lyrical powerhouses share the stage
Robyn Ludwick
& Kacy Crowley

Robyn Ludwick

ListenWatchWebsite
Kacy  Crowley

ListenWatchWebsite
Robyn Ludwick: Lone Star Music Awards Nominee for "Best Female Vocal" and "Best Singer-Songwriter/Folk"

Robyn Ludwick rings of hard-earned authenticity...the best of Americana and better yet the best of Texas. Her older brothers Bruce and Charlie Robison have cut their own distinct paths as songwriters and performers and Robyn is a force of her own, staking out her own territory on the musical horizon. She has a voice that's pure Texas twang and that emotes far beyond her years. A sound reminiscent of a blend between Mary Gauthier and Lucinda Willimas. All Music Guide states, "her voice is as elegant and graceful as a straight razor; it takes no prisoners, makes no apologies." Look for Robyn’s latest, Little Rain produced by Gurf Morlix, scheduled for release on July 15, 2014. Critics agree that Robyn’s writing is the “Best of Americana and Best of Texas”. Robyn has recently been referred to as “The Queen of Modern Texas Country Soul’ and “the most formidable songwriter of the Robisons”.

Kacy Crowley: New England native Kacy Crowley has got some battle scars. From cancer to drug addiction to the music industry, Kacy has proved herself to be the definition of a survivor. Her songs are both fiercely unapologetic and bravely tender, a combination of poetic insight and simple observation that has won over the hearts of fans from Sweden to Saskatoon.

Kacy blew onto the radar in 1997 after Atlantic Records released her first independent recording "Anchorless." With critical praise jammed in her back pocket from publications like Billboard, Time, USA Today and Vanity Fair she toured the US and into Canada, joined the Lilith Fair, played the H.O.R.D.E. festival, opened for acts such as Chantal Kreviazuk and Marc Cohn and participated in Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit with artists like Alanis Morisette, Metallica and the Dave Matthews Band. Her songs were featured in the films Little Boy Blue, Anywhere But Here and Three to Tango, and found their way into various other television programs. Kacy was also a guest at Miles Copeland’s Castle, a prestigious songwriting retreat in France.

CD Release Show for "The Second Hand: Live at the Bugle Boy"

The word “troubadour” is thrown around a lot these days, but music fans need look no further than Texas’ own Susan Gibson for an example of that word in action, or rather, in motion. Gibson never stops; she puts 60,000+ miles a year on her Sprinter van touring all over the country. From playing listening rooms and festivals to teaching songwriter classes and workshops, this award-winning singer/songwriter defines poetry in motion.

Gibson is celebrating 10 years as a solo touring and recording artist with the release of “The Second Hand,” a live album recorded at The Bugle Boy in La Grange, one of the Texas’ most highly lauded listening rooms. On “The Second Hand,” the CMA award-winning songwriter (the Dixie Chicks took the Gibson-penned “Wide Open Spaces” to the top for four weeks) manages to capture a high energy show while also sharing a very personal, poignant side with her audience. Gibson handpicked some of her favorite musicians for the recording; she is joined by Billy Masters on guitar, David Carroll on upright bass, and Ray Rodriguez on drums and percussion.

Minnesota born but mostly Texas raised (her father worked for the railroad), Susan went to college in Texas and Montana where she started in the open mic scene. She jumped into the Texas touring circuit when she joined The Groobees in Amarillo in 1996, and they recorded 4 well received albums before splitting up in 2002. Not one to lose momentum, Gibson hit the road in 2003 with “Chin Up,” her first solo record, and hasn’t slowed down since. “The Second Hand” is her 5th release, and she’s collected honors along the way like BMI’s “Songwriter of the Year” and “Entertainer of the Year” from the West Texas Music Hall of Fame. In 2013 she was honored to play at the Texas State Society’s Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C.

When the thought of recording a live album came up, The Bugle Boy quickly rose to the top of the list of venue choices. An intimate room located between Austin and Houston, they have built a reputation as one of the foremost listening rooms in the state if not the country. Making a live album requires an enthusiastic and tuned in audience, and The Bugle Boy delivered in spades.

Depending on who you ask, singer, stringster, songsmith and storyteller STEVE JAMES is everything from legendary to notorious. In the vast and varied world of contemporary roots/blues and folk music, he's earned his reputation with decades of tireless international touring, a stack of touted solo recordings, a wry kinetic stage presence and an unmistakable "this is me" style of playing and singing. His instrumental versatility (on guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, guitar-banjo) also makes him a favorite at music camps and workshop programs. He's been interviewed for features in Acoustic Guitar, Guitar Player, Blues Revue and Folk Roots (to name a few), and has been heard on "A Prairie Home Companion", The House Of Blues Network and many other syndicated programs worldwide.

"Campbell belongs in the company of literati like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, and Lucinda Williams." - New Country
Kate Campbell
Kate Campbell
ListenWatchWebsite
Singer-songwriter Kate Campbell took up piano at age seven before switching to the guitar as a teenager during the folk-rock heyday of the 70s. Since then, over the course of thirteen albums, she has written, recorded and performed almost exclusively on the acoustic guitar. On 1000 Pound Machine Campbell returns to the instrument of her childhood and enlists Will Kimbrough to produce the eleven-song disc. Emmylou Harris lends haunting harmony on a true narrative about death-row prisoners who find peace through meditation (“Alabama Department of Corrections Meditation Blues”) while Sloan Wainwright adds background vocals to “Wait for Another Day.”

As the daughter of a Baptist preacher from Sledge, Mississippi, Kate’s formative years were spent in the very core of the civil rights movement of the 1960′s, and the indelible experiences of those years have shaped her heart, character and convictions ever since. As a child of the South, her musical tastes were forged in the dampered, smoky fires of soul, R&B, Southern rock, country, and folk music. Campbell continues to impress audiences across the US and overseas and tours extensively in support of her CDs including tours to the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Her endearing, clear-water vocal delivery, eloquent gift for storytelling (which has drawn repeated comparisons to such bastions of the Southern writing tradition as Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty and William Faulkner) and easy command of a full-range of American music styles, have combined to earn Campbell recognition as a formidable talent by critics, musicians and a discerning public. Campbell has been featured on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Live From Mountain Stage.

"A.J. Croce has wisdom beyond his years. With his music, he represents his generation with a profound sense of honesty in his lyrics and quality in his delivery. The future of entertainment is safe in his hands!" - Willie Nelson
AJ Croce

ListenWatchWebsite

"Clearly a virtuoso piano player (and damn good guitarist), AJ emanates 'artist' from head to toe, inside and out as he showed off his talent in a way that wasn't pushy or flamboyant, but merely as a treat to everyone in the room, himself included."
- Andy Gadiel, JamBase Founder and President

Born Adrian James Croce on September 28th 1971. The son of legendary singer/songwriter Jim Croce, A.J. lost his father to a 1973 plane crash. Soon after his father’s death, he lost his sight, and began playing the piano. He regained partial vision at age 10. Croce began performing professionally at age 12. A.J. got his first break at 18 when B.B. King heard him play and asked him to join him on tour as a support act. The next year A.J. was signed to Private Music and made his first recording the self titled "A.J. Croce”. His debut was produced by T-Bone Burnett and John Simon. On the session for his first recording A.J. met Jim Keltner, who became a mentor and hired A.J. to write for a project with Ry Cooder. Keltner would end up producing Croce’s second release “That’s Me In The Bar”. To this date A.J. Croce has recorded 7 albums, all of them reaching the charts in different categories, from Jazz, College, AAA, Americana, and Top 40. A.J’s diverse writing and musical abilities have made him a go to songwriter and session musician for a variety of films and numerous creative projects. His 7th studio CD “Cage Of Muses” was released in 2009 and garnered 4 stars in Rolling Stone among countless other positive reviews.

A.J. Croce has performed on The Tonight Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Austin City Limits, CNN, E!, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, The Today Show…

In Concert A.J. has performed with some of the most legendary acts of our time. It started with B.B. King, and then, A.J.’s hero Ray Charles invited him on tour. He has played on stage with Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Lyle Lovett, The Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Rod Stewart, Santana, Taj Mahal and Dave Mathews just to name a few.

“One of our greatest young songwriters” - David Wild of Rolling Stone

Award-Winning Songwriters
Kevin Welch &

Dustin  Welch

ListenWatchWebsite
Kevin Welch: Kevin is known as a songwriter’s songwriter. He was honored as the “Artists Tribute to a Legend” at the 2009 Steamboat Springs Colorado MusicFest where his peers performed his songs to him in the packed theater.

Kevin has long been recognized as an awesome writer, musician, and vocalist, but he is much more than that; he is a man who has truly lived life, and has created music that is REAL in the purest sense. You don’t sit and listen to Welch’s music because you are told to; you do so because you are mesmerized. Welch’s lyrics and music capture you and bring you into his world, and through that journey you are able to find a piece of yourself.

Dustin Welch: Raised among the sons and daughters of songwriters, fiddle players, guitarists, banjo dobro piano players, publishers, song pluggers, hippie kids from Gaskin's Farm, painters, pot throwers, and potgrowers, Dustin Welch drank deep. Probably inspired largely by his early exposure to Bela Fleck's evolutionary approach to the banjo, Dustin began devising a unique style of his own. Bare-fingered, open tuning, Appalachian flavored grooves and melodies coupled with literate lyrics, strange and beautiful, and the songs kept coming.

One evening in 2006, Dustin was playing in the house band for a tribute to Townes Van Zandt at the venerable old Belcourt Theater in Nashville. The drummer that night was Ken Coomer from Wilco, who told him that he knew a band in San Diego who was looking for a guy like him. Within a week he flew out for an audition and didn't go home for 6 months, touring with the Scotch Greens all over the US and Europe, opening for acts like Reverend Horton Heat and Flogging Molly, playing disciplined slamming shows night after night. By now, Dustin has relocated to Austin, where he now resides. The songs keep coming, and one thing keeps leading to another.

“She doesn’t place her songs above her listeners; she’s down inside them” – All Music Guide
Eliza Gilkyson
Eliza Gilkyson

ListenWatchWebsite
Eliza Gilkyson is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter who has become one of the most respected musicians in Folk and Americana music circles. The daughter of songwriter Terry Gilkyson, whose songs were recorded by artists as diverse as Johnny Cash, the White Stripes, and Dean Martin, Eliza was headed for a career in music at an early age.

She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, Etown, Sirius/XM, Air America Radio and has toured with Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter. She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame alongside legends Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and Nanci Griffith, received a Grammy nomination for her 2006 CD “Paradise Hotel”, and is an ongoing winner of the Austin Chronicle’s various music awards, as well as the Folk Alliance Best Artist, Best Songwriter and Record of the Year.

Eliza’s music has always reflected her vivid vision of the world around her, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window into a life of struggle and triumph in a world she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.”

Her previous release on Red House Records, Roses at the End of Time, illuminates the issues, the inspirations and the agonies of our time, and the struggle to remain human in the midst of multi-dimensional crises. Her newest recording, The Nocturne Diaries, is out now and already earning accolades.

"They're great instrumentalists, singers and songwriters and they have this unique way of blending contemporary with traditional. The result is this beautiful mix of timeless music." - Cindy Cashdollar (Texas Steel Guitar Hall Of Fame)

The Carper Family is a family band like no other, spinning out the effortless harmonies of a born-family with the range and diversity of a made-family. Whatever the bloodline, the music hits the ear with both depth and simplicity, capturing the essence of true country music. The Austin-based trio of Melissa Carper [upright bass], Beth Chrisman [fiddle], and Jenn Miori [guitar] applies their signature, stunning three-part harmonies to bluegrass, old-time, country and swing tunes of the standard and original variety, pushing and honoring American musical traditions at every step.

In the last few years, the Carper’s rise has impressed and entertained audiences and their fellow musicians all over the place. They’ve shared stages with any number of country notables, including steel-guitar master Cindy Cashdollar, West Virginia’s Ginny Hawker, and Kansas City fiddle legend, Betse Ellis. And, like any country band worth its salt, they tour hard, crisscrossing North America and Europe to play gigs at festivals from Alaska and Arkansas to Norway, and at storied venues like Nashville’s Station Inn.

Their original songs range from the deeply-moving to the profoundly quirky and their catalogue of lesser known country music is impressive for such a young group. The Carper Family’s dedication to the rich and sprawling history of American country music and the joy they bring audiences with their crystalline sound guarantee that these ladies will be introducing this new-old music to folks for years to come.

"What makes these Heathens so refreshingly different is the overall musicianship and seamless blending of alt-rockers, folk tales, gutbucket blues and heartland anthems.” — Chicago Sun Times
The Band of Heathens
Band Of Heathens
ListenWatchWebsite
In the course of evolving from loose assemblage to world-class rock ’n’ roll outfit, the Band of Heathens has built a potent body of recorded work that’s won the Austin, Texas ensemble a fiercely loyal fan base and a reputation as one of its hometown’s most vital musical resources. BoH is also known as one of America’s hardest-working touring acts, while revealing a musical and lyrical depth that consistently enriches an infectious songcraft. Sunday Morning Record, the Band of Heathens’ fourth studio album (and seventh overall), marks a milestone in the resilient outfit’s development, capturing the musicians’ remarkable creative chemistry along with the deepening melodic and emotional resonance in the songwriting of founding singer-guitarists Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist.

The Band of Heathens’ imposing reputation as a live act was reflected in their decision to launch their recording career with a pair of live albums, 2006’s Live From Momo’s and 2007’s CD/DVD Live at Antone’s. 2008 saw the release of an eponymous
first studio effort, produced by iconic Texas troubadour Ray Wylie Hubbard. That album won widespread fan approval and copious critical acclaim, as did 2009’s One Foot in the Ether, which, like its predecessor, reached the #1 slot on the national Americana charts. Also in 2009, the band gained substantial TV exposure, performing live sets on PBS’ Austin City Limits and the legendary German music show Rockpalast, as well as being honored as Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards.
