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.

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.
