The One and Only King of Dieselbilly !!!

BILL KIRCHEN
Transatlanticana CD Release Party with Rick Richards and Sarah Brown

"Bill Kirchen rules. It's just that simple. [His] no-nonsense diesel guitar attack, powered by great booming, bottom-heavy licks still covered with axle grease, is undoubtedly the real thing, scattering scorching guitar runs in all directions, it's all immediate, in your face and more than a little dangerous.” Austin American-Statesman

Truly the Master of the Telecaster, BILL KIRCHEN, known for his years with the Bay Area-based Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, played the now-famous licks on hits such as Hot Rod Lincoln, Too Much Fun and The Seeds and Stems Blues is going to rock and roll your heart and soul. One of the nicest guys on the planet is also one of Earth's best guitarists, and you can see for yourself!

This could very well be the best guitarist in the country, on the planet ... certainly in my World. Do yourself a favor and SAVE THIS DATE on your calendar.

MISS MARCY & her TEXAS SUGERDADDY'S

missmarcy

In a musical genre dominated too often by men, Miss Marcy is at the forefront of the Dallas blues scene, wowing blues aficionados with a voice that sounds one part angelic/two parts devilish, which nearly caused this listener's heart to stop as I fell into her words. Graduating from the University of North Texas in 2001, Miss Marcy has spent the last decade playing club gigs, festivals and private parties across the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 2010, she released her first album Miss Marcy and the Texas SugarDaddy's. Harnessing blues divas like Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and Big Mama Thorton, Miss Marcy is living proof that the blues are timeless. -DallasObserver.com

She ain't no schooled musician with a fancy degree. Miss Marcy is a Bar Singer. She graduated from University of North Texas with a degree in English Literature and since then has been hanging out in bars and playing music with Dallas’ finest musicians. Miss Marcy has been working the Dallas/ Ft. Worth entertainment circuit regularly for several years now. Her musical passion resides with Blues and traditional Jazz. Miss Marcy’s musical style is derived from the Divas from the first part of the 20th century including Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Big Mama Thorton , and the like. In her live show, she rarely does popular standards and instead selects songs that were considered by 20’s and 30’s audiences to be too suggestive for radio or too racial. She has always enjoyed the music of that era and tries to re-create the sound as it would have been.

T Tex Edwards Trio

T. Tex Edwards is an unsung pioneer of cowpunk and honky tonk murder ballads who started out in the '70s with the punk band Nervebreakers. Thom "Tex" Edwards' whiskey-soaked vocals already had a slight country twang to them back in 1978 even as the band performed their goofy anthems while supporting the Sex Pistols in Dallas. Drawing influence from the Flamin' Groovies and the Cramps rather than the more political end of the punk spectrum, Nervebreakers were equally at home lampooning "You're the One That I Want" from Grease as they were playing it straight (relatively) with the Kinks' "I'm Not Like Everybody Else." Their original material was rousing and funny, and "My Girlfriend Is a Rock" was even a minor hit in San Francisco. The band never released a full-length record in their lifetime, even though they had an almost legendary local reputation. A live performance of them backing Roky Erickson at the Dallas Palladium in 1979 was released in 1992, and a posthumous CD recorded in 1980, We Want Everything, was finally released by Get Hip in 2000.

Edwards' first post-Nervebreakers outfit, Tex & the Saddle Tramps, left scarce but vital documentation, such as the churlish rocker "Move It!" that later would appear on the Loafin' Hyenas record and be covered by LeRoi Brothers. Still most of the T. Tex legend from the early to mid-'80s remains only in the recollections of those fortunate enough to catch him performing his offbeat brand of incorrigible country live. His growling redneck delivery is at times unhinged, but it's instantly recognizable, highly addictive, and consistently manages to hit the narrow margin between parody and reverence, often accomplishing both.

He formed Out on Parole in Austin in 1984, and Loafin' Hyenas in Hollywood in 1986, but it took until 1989 before things finally started moving forward. His first solo album -- as T. Tex Edwards and Out on Parole -- was a stroke of demented genius that caused a stir when cult label Sympathy for the Record Industry released it yet proved more an inspiration than the chart-topper it should have been. Pardon Me, I've Got Someone to Kill was a collection of "psycho-country" covers done with a relatively straight face and high musical pedigree -- LeRoi Brothers/Fabulous Thunderbirds alumni Mike Buck was the driving force behind the album. It's not only Johnny Cash who wrote dark country and western songs of adultery and murder; Pardon Me collects obscure, nutty gems from the likes of Johnny Paycheck (the title song), Porter Wagoner ("Rubber Room"), and Lee Hazlewood ("Girl on Death Row"), not to mention the twisted genius of Leon Payne's "Psycho." The same ground would be covered in the following decade, sometimes with song selections oddly similar to Pardon Me, but rarely with the same gravelly brilliance. — JT Lindroos, All Music Guide

TEX SMITH AND FAMILY
GLADYS & MAYBELLE

"I’m especially fond of Tex’s train songs, they have a certain lonely feel to them that I’m very drawn to. While he’s never dour, Tex can be quite sentimental, he has the ability to make you almost as chilly as the characters of which he sings about." - Murry Hammond (Old 97’s)

“Smith’s sound is equal parts Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, and Ramsay Midwood through a Sun Records filter”; - Linc Leifeste. TEXAS MUSIC magazine.

A Wayfarer’s Lament “takes the listener beyond trite lost-love laments of pedestrian songwriters and into a heartfelt room of wreckage and recovery,” - Diana Hendricks, REAL SOUTH magazine.

"Tex Smith has a bit of everything, both up-tempo and laid back, but it’s strikingly introspective. There are deeper questions lingering beneath the honky-tonkin’ surface bemoaning foolish romantic woes" - Laurie Gallardo, 98.9FM KUTX Austin, TX

Tex Smith was born and raised in Texas, but the roots of his sound spread far beyond his home state. He likes to say that his music “blends country, roots rock, singer-songwriter style and folk into one big flavorful pot of stew.” Indeed, it’s this eclectic mix of styles that marks his artistry across three well-received albums, including his latest, A Wayfarer’s Lament, released in late 2012.

DAVID COOPER SHREDS STRAUSS HORN CONCERTO
plus Kyle Sherman on trumpet, and Mikhail Berestnev on piano

OPEN CLASSICAL ARTIST SERIES is proud to present Dallas Symphony Principal Hornist David Cooper absolutely shredding one of the most challenging and rewarding horn concertos ever written, Richard Strauss horn Concerto #1. David plans to simply lay into this beast and dominate the creature from beginning to end, and you can behold the majesty of his triumph in this concert.

Joining David on the program is Fort Worth Symphony principal trumpet player Kyle Sherman, performing some brass gymnastics of his own.

On the piano will be Mikhail Berestnev, a ridiculously talented specimen of pianistic vituosity who is from Russia, but makes his home in the DFW area.

AMY LaVERE
WILL SEXTON

Hallelujah is a sonic portrait.

In these 11 tracks, Amy and Will have captured the immediacy of the live show they’ve developed on the road together, reveling in a more stripped-down sound and celebrating the freedoms and limitations that come with it in stunning form. Recorded to magnetic tape (with the help of engineer Daniel Lynn and longtime band mate guitarist Dave Cousar) in the course of a few afternoons at Music+Arts Studio, the arrangements are lithe and uncluttered, allowing Amy and Will’s disarming harmonies to rise to the top.

At times their voices blend so well you can hardly find the place where they split – it’s a dance matched only by the complimentary guitar work of Sexton and Cousar. The gems of the album are its new tunes – the playful and evocative “Cricket (At Night I Can Fly)” and “It’s the Thing to Do,” a co-write with Will– plus a new almost sunny take on the macabre “Red Banks,” which originally appeared on Amy’s 2011 studio album Stranger Me and a sublime cover of David Egan’s “Hallelujah I’m A Dreamer,” the album’s namesake.

Hallelujah I’m A Dreamer is immediate and striking, a masterfully played (and curated) mix of old, new and reimagined. Amy played several SXSW shows, including the New West Showcase with Luther Dickinson (who produced her 2014 critically acclaimed Runaway’s Diary LP) as well as a handful with John Paul Keith as Motel Mirrors. Now, Amy and Will continue doing what they’ve long done best: touring relentlessly across the U.S. and, this summer, in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and more.

They pull from the traditional legacy of our historical predecessors, original work, and a great reservoir of contemporary writers’ material to create a special version of Acoustic Americana, one that appeals to many listeners, regardless of age or general musical preferences.

SWAMP ROCK, MUMBO JUMBO, TORE UP

DON LEADY & THE TAILGATORS

From his role as a charter member of Austin roots kings, the Leroi Brothers, to front man for swamp rockers the Tailgators, the conjunto trio Los Cadillos, and his latest creation, Alamo Suite, a three-piece jazz outfit (all of which have the same personnel), Don Leady has proven himself to be such an expert stylistic interpreter, he passes for an original. Alamo Suite, the self-titled album by Leady as jazzbo, works the same turf as Texas guitar great Herb Ellis, messing around with bluesy, jazz-inflected instrumentals. Listening to it is like having a lounge in your own home, without the bothersome barroom smoke or loud talkers at the next table. ―Joe Nick Patoski, TexasMonthly.com

As an original LeRoi Brother, Leady helped define the strong roots rock scene in Austin. In the Tailgators, he fused Fabulous Thunderbird-style blues with hardscrabble swamp-rock that made the trio enormously popular. In recent years, he's gone jazzier with Alamo Suite, but retained the big guitar sound he mastered long ago. Whatever the musical configuration, Leady's stellar credentials make him worth a listen. ―Margaret Moser, AustinChronicle.com
