    Huck Johnson and the Jackknives

    Huck Johnson and the Jackknives play swinging Texas Blues. The Austin TX based band is currently touring in support of their first studio recording: “Mason Jar Martini” which was released in the spring of 2015. Consisting of six original compositions, the EP demonstrates the band’s love for West Coast Jump and Texas Blues, as well as Traditional Jazz and Surf instrumentals. Along with their catalog of original music, this dynamic trio’s ability to play Jazz and Blues standards, Soul, and high energy Rock and Roll, puts smiles on faces and will always keep the dance floor moving. Huck and the boys put on a show to remember!

    Choctaw Wildfire

    In a town brimming with talent, Choctaw Wildfire has quickly become one of Austin's must-see acts. While the band's raw intensity has captured the attention of the home town faithful, the intimacy and intrinsic beauty of Charlie Pierce's songs lie at the core of Choctaw Wildfire's appeal. There is great power in life's simple truths and Choctaw Wildfire proves this with every performance.
