“In short, having seen Nellie at the Stateside at Paramount and The Bugle Boy, I have to say I was very impressed by just about everything The Bugle Boy had to offer. It’s a given that Nellie put on an extraordinary show at both venues, but the Bugle Boy welcomed each attendee with a warm personalized greeting and were so kind throughout making it a pleasant experience all-around. The Bugle Boy is very unassuming from the outside but, once inside, the acoustics and thoughtful interior design really blew me away. Everyone seemed to know each other and you could tell it’s a loving tight-knit community. I will be back!
P.S. Please book Nellie again! Thanks for a great evening,” – D
“I’ve been attending shows here since the “fold out chairs” days, and take pride in my assistance installing the theater seating making the musical experience even more enjoyable. My love and continued monthly support will remain going forward to this wonderful organization. My “musical friends” here at the Bugle Boy remain a testament to the commitment to the Texas (and beyond…) musician community. Thank you for all you do!” – N
“The Bugle Boy: the listening room we wish we could have in every town in America.
Part neighborhood watering hole, part Sunday revival tent, this historic building
in a humble town halfway between Houston and Austin has become a destination
spot for music lovers, musicians of note, and for anyone who wants an
evening infused with the best kind of Texas hospitality.“- Erika Luckett – RIP
“The Bugle Boy is a great place to communicate to your audience. It’s a perfect setting with great sound, state of the art acoustics, and friendly people in a down-home atmosphere.“- Terri Hendrix
“They are so serious about the listening experience. They not only have a “silence you phone policy, but they even open your bag of chips in the front room and put them in a bowl so you don’t disturb the song“- Carolyn Wonderland
“I love The Bugle Boy. It really is my favorite
little venue in the country.” – Carrie Rodriguez
“The Bugle Boy is that rare venue where it is more than a gig. It is a musical sanctuary in the midst of an often chaotic world. Even on the most hectic days, we are centered by Lane’s welcoming smile, flawless sound and volunteers eager to make us comfortable. By the time we take the stage all of the elements are in place for a great show, which is what we always experience. The audience takes their cue from the venue and is just as welcoming and respectful. It’s simply…the best.“
– Christine Albert (Albert & Gage) / Former Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Recording Academy.
“The Bugle Boy has cultivated a world class audience and was an absolute joy to play. See y’all again real soon!” – Lilli Lewis
