Eric Johnson in concert

Eric Johnson is touring in celebration of his 1990 release Ah Via Musicom, which was certified platinum plus and launched Eric's signature hit "Cliffs Of Dover," which won the Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Eric will be performing with an electric band on this tour.

Johnson leapt to the forefront of contemporary music some 20 years ago as "an extraordinary guitar player accessible to ordinary music fans," as the Memphis Commercial Appeal hails him, with his landmark album Ah Via Musicom. Lauded as a "recording [that] has reached near-classic proportions within the guitar community" by All Music Guide, it was preceded by dedicated groundwork as a live performer that marked him as a talent bound for great things. And it's been followed by a diverse and fascinating musical journey that inspired The New Age Music Guide to rave that "Eric Johnson plays guitar the way Michelangelo painted ceilings: with a colorful vibrancy that's more real than life."

Not only do Baby Boomers continue to rock out to this music that they grew up hearing, but younger people have also come to enjoy the sounds of classic rock and roll. And the band that has been synonymous with 50’s and 60’s music in Central Texas is THE MORTICIANS!

Pat Green in concert

After rising through Texas' college-town and dancehall scene years ago, Green earned himself major-label support in Nashville and became the poster child of Texas music for a whole generation of fans. His list of achievements includes over 2 million albums sold, three Grammy nominations and a sold out Houston Astrodome.

Now, after breaking the cycle for a three-year recharge, Green is back in his comfort zone and playing by his own rules again. His is new independent album Home is his first set of originals in several years, and directly speaks to the hardcore fans that have been with him since the beginning.

Featuring a mature country sound that is both modern and exposes his roots for all to see, his new tunes are full of ringing acoustic guitars, slippery steel and dobro, wailing fiddles and heartfelt, personal lyrics, making Home the return to form many fans have been waiting for.

The Queens of Soul Jazz

eanette Harris is the scintillating saxtress of smooth jazz. This lady understands that energetic and captivating performances matched with uplifting and inspiring vibrations in the music are the solid platinum recipe for success. Fans already recognize her for her wonderful cover of Stevie Wonder’s “All I Do,” which hit Billboard’s smooth jazz singles chart from her previous album, Saxified. Classically trained in both sax and piano, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, and the saxophonist for the late, great Teena Marie’s final year of touring, Jeanette has weathered the fiercest challenges to bring the world her own brand of soulful healing vibes. That baptism awaits in her fourth CD, Summer Rain, on which Jeanette had a hand in writing all of the selections except her lovely cover of the Luther Vandross classic “Here and Now.” Its 11 sunny songs wrap the listener in the glow of fun love grooves and sweet romance.

“Flautist Althea René has spent much of her life successfully meeting challenges and overcoming obstacles. She established her career while raising two boys as a single mother and working days as a deputy sheriff in Detroit courthouses. She’s the first flute player to hit the top of both the Billboard and Smooth Jazz charts, and she joins us to discuss the latest single from her hit album, “In the Flow”.” - Tavis Smiley, Tavis Smiley Show (Apr 07, 2014)

Then Sings My Soul documents that growth process, but it also proves that even now, the kid from Robbinsville is still firmly in touch with his roots, and capable of creating sonic and spiritual images that will transport listeners back to the little Baptist church where those roots were planted.

Robert Earl Keen in concert

Now three-decades on from the release of his debut album – with nineteen records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and still no end in sight to the road ahead – Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. And as for accruing recognition, well, he’s done alright on that front, too; from his humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, he’s blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that’s earned him living-legend (not to mention pioneer) status in the Americana music world. And though the Houston native has never worn his Texas heart on his sleeve, he’s long been regarded as one of the Lone Star State’s finest (not to mention top-drawing) true singer-songwriters.

KB & Gawvi in concert

Three studio releases in and KB is at his creative zenith. For years, the Tampa native has been something of an outlier in hip-hop, firmly placing a thumb print on the game while invoking the power of spiritual conviction. His lyricism is impassioned and astute, and he won’t be bent against his will. Given his commanding presence and consistent output, it comes as no surprise that the world has taken notice. The track “100” from the EP of the same name, took home the Dove Award for Rap/Hip-Hop Song of the Year in 2014. And his last LP, 2015’s Tomorrow We Live, garnered both critical and commercial acclaim, earning a Stellar Award nomination for Rap/Hip-Hop Gospel CD of the Year and debuting on the Billboard charts as the No.1 Christian Album and the No. 4 Rap Album overall.

David Dunn in concert

A brilliant, soulful singer/songwriter, this Midland, Texas native writes in unfiltered, human terms, mirroring doubt and faith in a single stroke. He doesn’t use churchy language, and he ignores sonic blueprints, fusing and confusing genre confines. And he does this with great intention, valuing art as the context for music, as much as for conveying a spiritual message.

For Dunn, seven records and 14 tattoos down the road less traveled, the goal is always: “To tell the truth and do it in a beautiful way.”

Zach Winters in concert

Winters’ debut, A Long Intermission, was recorded simply in his bedroom and released in 2004 mostly to friends and family. But over the years, Winters has honed his songwriting and DIY approach, garnering praise from voices like Paste Magazine and self-producing five full-length albums as well as a handful of EPs and other projects.

Winters’ efforts have most recently culminated in a more luxuriant variety of indie-folk on his new crowd-funded record, To Have You Around. The 12-track album features everything from generous string arrangements to groovy bass lines to his first foray into horns, and most notably, Winters’ yearning, gentle, and sometimes playful vocal layering. Sweet companion, break bread with me / We’ve miles to go, let’s hold steady intones Winters in a refrain that’s equal parts affection and meditation. Songs like the title track “To Have You Around” and “Knock Kneed & Lead Lunged” find a comfortable place in the canon that is Winters’ brand of smooth, organic folk, while head-bobbing songs like “Love My Woman” and “If the Sun Is Shining” echo days of summer.
