What a night at The Alcove Cantina! Even though we had to stop short because of the rain, it was a great night. Y'all showed up in numbers, just like we asked, and it was awesome. Thanks SO much to everyone who came out. And we would be remiss if we didn't thank the Alcove staff -- you guys rock.


In case you missed it, we (audience and band) were having a grand old time until about halfway through the second set. Then, during Freddie King's "She Put the Whammy on Me," here came the rain. And it was the kind of rain that went from drop-drop-drop to downpour in about a minute. Luckily, we had plastic tarps close by and were able to get our gear covered up quickly enough that nothing got too wet.


So our next goal is to get back to The Alcove Cantina as soon as we can work out the scheduling. And we hope to see you there!

What an awesome night at The Brass Tap Round Rock! Thanks SO much to everyone who came out! The weather was great, birthdays were celebrated, and we even had our friend David Arnold play some mean sax with us on a couple of songs. See ya there again soon!

Coming soon is another new place for us, Black Sparrow Music Parlor in Taylor, Texas, on July 22nd.

And we recently lined up a few more dates at Marshall's Tavern -- both the original Pflugerville location where we played in April and the newer Austin location on Pond Springs Road.

So until then...

Get yer blues on!

Very sad news today -- Junior's Grill & Icehouse in Round Rock has closed.

We would like to take a moment to thank Brett and the great staff of Junior's for all the opportunities they have given us over the years and wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Goodbye, Junior's, you will be missed!

Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for updates on how we fill the dates we already had booked for Junior's.

Well, that was interesting. It had been misting/drizzling (but not quite raining) all day. Hoping that it would blow over, we went ahead and set up outside and covered everything up with plastic tarps. We waited. It wasn't showing any signs of blowing over -- in fact it was getting worse. Finally, after about 7:00, we figured we'd better either move everything indoors or give up and go home. So we moved everything indoors -- which is no small feat considering how much gear we carry around.

(Side note: the room which we have always referred to as The Pool Room currently has no pool table, so it will now be known as The Back Room.)

We managed to get all the stuff moved and started playing about 9:00 to a small but very enthusiastic group of people. Thanks SO much to everyone who hung out with us; y'all made it all worth it.


By the way, you can probably guess what happened outside as soon as we had everything moved -- no more rain, no more drizzle, no more misting. Not another drop. Oh well.

We'll be back to Junior's on Saturday, December 12th for our last show of 2015. And yeah, we'll dust off the Christmas songs.

Next up we got a VERY rare appearance at The Roadhouse in Round Rock -- this is our only show there this year -- on Friday, November 20th. See ya there!

We recently got to be a part of a music video for world-renowned cowbell player El Borracho, using our song "The Ballad of El Borracho." Check it out HERE!

Also, you can download the song "The Ballad of El Borracho" (for the low low price of $.99) from CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, and many other fine establishments coming soon.

More cowbell!

Update:

El Borracho has hung up his cowbell and retired, but you can still watch the video and download the song. :)

Thanks to everybody who joined us at the Sher Bear We Care Benefit Concert at The Roost On Sunday, September 7th! We haven't seen the final totals, but from what we understand the benefit was quite a success. We were honored to be a part of it, and thanks so much to the organizers for inviting us.

Round Rock Leader photographer Henry Huey took some really cool shots of us at Junior's on August 17th. Check 'em out here!

Here's the one that appeared in the August 22 print edition (note the License Plate Guitar by Texas Box Guitars ).

Pretty cool, right?

Our friend Jolene Roxbury called The Roadhouse about our recent show and was able to capture this special message...

Then there's this:

We recently had the pleasure of conversing (via emai) with none other than Jolene Roxbury herself -- whose classic "OB-GYN Answering Machine" inspired our name. There's finally official animation to go along with the audio. Check it out here.

As you may have noticed, we added a couple of buttons to the menu (above) including a link to our new MUSIC page. Check it out!

Well, we didn't win the Austin Blues Society's 2012 Heart of Texas International Blues Challenge , but that's okay. We had a ton of fun, had a great time, got to share the stage with a lot of cool people and hear some great music.

Thanks SO much to everyone who supported us in this little endeavor, especially those who came out and cheered (and voted!) for us. Y'all are the best. Also, thanks to the Austin Blues Society for treating ALL the bands so well and making us feel welcome. And besides, there's always next year! :)

PS - Congratulations JT Coldfire! You're goin' to Memphis, dude!
