Contagious R&B groove from The Voice

Rhythm and blues singer/songwriter Reagan James, a 17-year-old from Burleson, was thrust into the national spotlight in 2014 as a Top 10 artist on the seventh season of NBC’s The Voice. Although American Idol winner (and former Burleson resident) Kelly Clarkson was once her babysitter, Reagan’s biggest musical influence is her stepdad, a guitar teacher and singer who taught Reagan how to play guitar. Reagan’s been playing gigs while attending high school for the last couple of years, but she’d like nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of her now-famous babysitter with her combination of soulful melody and contagious groove in her growing catalog of original music.

A spinning wheel of Grammy-winning rock

It’s been more than four decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends assembled the first group to successfully blend rock and jazz into a genre-crossing sound and style. They were so successful that the band’s second album, Blood, Sweat & Tears, topped the Billboard charts for many weeks and beat out the Beatles’ Abbey Road for the prestigious Grammy Award for Album of the Year. That album produced three major hit singles: You Made Me So Very Happy, Spinning Wheel and And When I Die. Now Blood Sweat & Tears has a contemporary voice, one that reaches beyond a single, nostalgic audience. Under Bobby’s leadership, Blood, Sweat & Tears still performs their hits with spirit and enthusiasm, as if it was their first performance of those songs. The band also introduces new elements into every performance, including a segment devoted to “Songs We Wish We Had Recorded,” done in classic BS&T style. During the early years of American Idol, which just concluded its 15-year run, Bobby received calls from friends telling him to check out singer Bo Bice, saying that his was a fresh voice and that he did a masterful job singing Spinning Wheel. A well seasoned southern rock singer with a great stage presence, Bo now performs with BS&T. The latest version of Blood, Sweat & Tears is the next chapter in a musical tale that stretches from the creativity and turbulence of the late ‘60s to the swiftly changing world of the 21st Century.

Storytelling and truth-digging

Doug Burr has a habit of mulling things over — kneading thoughts around until they yield something of value. The singer/songwriter from Denton is often lauded for his candor in his songs as he connects honestly through music. Four recordings in, Doug moves freely among country, folk and pop with ingenious storytelling. His latest recording, Pale White Dove, delivers songs soaked in Southern Gothic, another volume in Doug’s musical storytelling and truth-digging to connect with his audiences.

Infectious punk/pop fun!

If you were placing bets in the 1990s that a party band from Denton who love to hang out and drink beer while playing songs simply so they could hang out and drink more beer would go on to have a 20-year, Grammy Award-nominated career, you would probably be laughed out of town. Since their beginning in 1994, Bowling for Soup has captured the hearts of music fans in every corner of the globe with their infectious, fun-filled attitude. They’ve survived long after bands of similar genres have fallen by the wayside, and they continue to forge ahead with the release of their crowd-funded album, Lunch. Drunk. Love., and a 20th anniversary greatest hits recording, Songs People Actually Liked, Volume 1, The First 10 Years. Last year, Bowling for Soup appeared on Blues Traveler’s album Blow Up the Moon, and co-wrote two songs, Right Here Waiting For You and I Know, Right.

Soulful sounds from a New Orleans native son

A native son of New Orleans, Glen David Andrews, a singer, songwriter and trombonist, was born in the historic Tremé neighborhood. Transfixed by the magic and mystery of the city’s second-line parades, Glen David and his older brother, Derrick Tabb of the Rebirth Brass Band, along with their younger cousin, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, soaked up life’s musical lessons by learning the history of the brass band tradition from iconic figures like Tuba Fats. Glen David’s showmanship has endeared him to audiences on New Orleans’ fabled Frenchman Street. He’s also made a profound impression at the world’s biggest block party, the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Larry Blumenfeld wrote in the Wall Street Journal: “Onstage and off, electrifying club audiences and street scenes, speaking his mind at civic rallies, Glen David Andrews perhaps best embodies what David Simon, creator of the HBO series Tremé meant when he said, ‘Culture is what brought New Orleans back.’” Glen David’s newest recording, Redemption, is a powerful statement that correlates his own reclaimed life to his reclaimed city. The music is about ghosts and their residual energy, about acceptance and forgiveness, about rebirth and renewal.

Carrying on the Texas outlaw tradition

Dale Watson is a honky-tonk hero and country music maverick, one of the Texas music “outlaws” carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, Dale’s musical journey began in Houston right out of high school playing clubs and local honky-tonks. In 1988, he moved to Los Angeles and played in the house band at the legendary Palomino Club in Hollywood, then moved to Nashville to write songs for a publishing company run by Gary Morris. Commercial country did not fit the fiercely independent songwriter, so Dale returned to Texas, where he got a record deal and wrote several songs poking fun at the industry side of Nashville, including Nashville Rash from his Hightone debut, Cheatin’ Heart Attack, and A Real Country Song from his 1996 follow-up, Blessed or Damned. After making three albums with Hightone, Dale released The Trucking Sessions on Koch Records in 1998, including 14 original driving songs. The album received high praise, and music critics compared him to chart-topping writer Red Simpson, who was responsible for some of the most iconic trucking tunes in country music. In addition to music, Dale has acted in films (The Thing Called Love, On the Borderline), on television (Friday Night Lights), and most recently, on stage in Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a southern gothic musical by Stephen King and John Mellencamp. His rumbling baritone also has been heard on commercials for Shell, Monster.com and On the Border restaurants. Dale released his 20th album in 2011 called The Sun Sessions. Hailed as “one of the best country albums of the year” by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, it was recorded at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studios. He followed it with El Rancho Azul, 14 honky-tonk originals about marriage and heartbreak, which propelled Dale into the national spotlight with multiple appearances on late-night television and NPR.

Powerhouse blues with a down-home diva

Born to a family of gospel singers in a small Texas town, Ruthie Foster learned to sing at church. With a chapel-bred bravado trained on the works of powerful women, such as Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin, her sound grew into an inspired blend of blues, folk and gospel. Seeking her own path, Ruthie left home to serve in the Navy, where she discovered a love of performing while singing pop and funk tunes as the frontwoman of Pride, a band that performed at Navy recruitment drives nationwide. After the Navy, she moved to New York City to pursue a career as a professional musician. After diving into the city’s vibrant music scene, she became a staple in the folk community and was soon offered a development deal by Atlantic Records. Atlantic envisioned Ruthie as a pop artist, but Ruthie was focused on exploring roots music, so she returned to Texas to her family and the music that shaped her. Her debut recording, Full Circle, was released in 1997 and was followed by Crossover in 1999. The two albums secured Ruthie as an up-and-coming singer/songwriter in the Austin scene and caught the attention of Texas independent label Blue Corn Music, where she has recorded seven albums. She has been nominated three times for Grammy Awards for Best Blues Album. She has collaborated on stage with artists ranging from Bonnie Raitt to The Allman Brothers to Susan Tedeschi, and has recorded tracks with Warren Haynes, Big Head Todd and The Blind Boys of Alabama. Ruthie also has been featured as an actress with a guest appearance on NBC’s television series Revolution and as a classical vocalist with Austin’s prestigious vocal ensemble Conspirare. Ruthie has earned accolades that include the Austin Music Awards (three times as Best Female Vocalist), four Blues Music Awards and two Living Blues Awards recognitions.

Triple-threat fiddles and killer harmony

When the Quebe Sisters take the stage and the triple-threat fiddle champions play and sing in multi-part close harmony, audiences go from transfixed to blown away. It’s partly because the trio’s vocal and instrumental performances are authentic all-Americana and respectful of the artists who have inspired them the most. Not surprisingly, the Quebe Sisters win standing ovations at just about every show. It’s been that way since 2000, when they started fiddling together while growing up in Burleson. Hulda, Sophia and Grace were 7, 10 and 12 when they attended their first fiddle competition in nearby Denton and decided fiddling was what they wanted to do. The girls earned solo and group accolades early on, winning state and national championships in their respective age groups four years in a row. The Quebes’ evolution from the whiz-kid Western swing fiddlers they were to the young adult Americana band they are today is remarkable. Along with headlining their own shows to ever-growing audiences, they’ve shared the stage with music legends, like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel, and Riders in the Sky. After more than a decade of traveling across the country and the world and recording three acclaimed albums, Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe are pros in a variety of genres and count many famous musicians among their biggest fans.

Head-spinning power pop for kids

This rockin’ three-piece power pop band from North Carolina consists of talented artists, long-time musicians and dynamic dads, Chuck Folds (Ben Folds’ brother), Steve Willard and Eddie Walker. But this group doesn’t play just any ol’ music. These guys play parent-friendly children’s music. After 20 years of touring, Chuck, Steve and Eddie decided to expand their horizons and play for parents (like themselves) who want more from children’s music. They write songs with a pop sensibility that cleverly mixes alternative, hip-hop, pop, country and other genres to create music that parents and children can enjoy. Think of their show as a “kid-appropriate frat party.” Along with playing the prestigious Kidzapalooza stage at Lollapalooza, the Lake Eden Arts Festival, the Tosco Music Party, Musikfest, Hangout Festival and the NASCAR Coca Cola 600 Speed Street Festival,  Big Bang Boom has made numerous morning television appearances and played countless libraries (yes, they are LOUD in the library!), schools, children’s museums and other events.

Inside Out

Emotions run wild in the mind of a little girl who is uprooted from her peaceful life in the Midwest and forced to move to San Francisco in this Pixar adventure from director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc.). Young Riley was perfectly content with her life when her father landed a new job in San Francisco, and the family moved across the country. Now, as Riley prepares to navigate a new city and attend a new school, her emotional headquarters becomes a hot bed of activity. As Joy (voice of Amy Poehler) attempts to keep Riley feeling happy and positive about the move, other emotions like Fear (voice of Bill Hader), Anger (voice of Lewis Black), Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) make the transition a bit more complicated.

A master of improvisational song

Steve Poltz is anything but normal. He was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, but has lived most of his life in southern California. He has dual citizenship in Canada and the United States, but often says, “Should a hostage situation arise, I become conveniently Canadian.” Over the course of his life, he’s met Elvis Presley (who hugged his sister for far too long), trick or treated at Liberace’s house (each finger had a diamond ring), was Bob Hope’s favorite altar boy (according to him), bravely traveled the world as a street performer, famously co-wrote You Were Meant For Me with Jewel, angered David Cassidy and can count some of the world’s coolest people as fans. Steve is a former high school wrestler (98 pound class), an obsessed baseball fan, a yoga practitioner, a hopeless romantic, a smart-ass philosopher and a child-like adventurer/observer with an absurdist’s view of the world. He’s interested in it all: the big and the small, the sublime and the ridiculous, the terrestrial and the cosmic. As a recording artist, Steve has fronted the semi-legendary Rugburns and is responsible for a critically lauded body of work on his own: One Left Shoe, Chinese Vacation, Answering Machine, The Barn (a children’s album), Tales From The Tavern (a performance DVD), Traveling, Unraveling, Dreamhouse, Noineen Noiny Noin, and most recently, the soundtrack for the acclaimed Sundance-screened documentary film, Running Wild: The Life of Dayton O. Hyde. Steve can take an unsuspecting audience from laughter to tears and back again in the space of a single song. He is a master of improvisational songwriting and works without a set list to react instantly to the audience’s mood for a truly unique show every time.

Americana with a dash of Irish flavor

Few bands embody what’s right about the “new Nashville” more completely than the quintet known as Humming House. It’s in the way they weave together threads of Music City’s folk, soul and bluegrass legacies with inspirational, revealing songwriting. It’s also in their acoustic instrumentation, presenting mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar and bass in fresh roles. And it’s in the voices, with two complementary stylists up front backed by the full band’s rapturous harmonies. Their most recent recording, Revelries, mixes bluegrass and Celtic with vintage swing and 1960s hootenanny folk music and earned them some quick attention for videos of its infectious songs, Cold Chicago and Gypsy Django, and a performance slot at the Americana Music Festival. They also opened the new Music City Roots hall in The Factory in 2014, sharing the bill with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. Among the five members of Humming House, there’s scarcely a genre or period that somebody in the band hasn’t spent time learning or embracing from show tunes to bluegrass and beat boxing.

A hard-scrabble package of folk, rock and bluegrass

The Dirty River Boys make music with the type of sound and texture that’s soaked in the realities of the hard-scrabble city they call home in the far west Texas desert. They’re known for their rousing live shows that feature winning four-part harmonies and stout acoustic instrumentation. Fans clamored for the release of the band’s first two EPs, Long Cold Fall and Train Station, and buzz for their self-titled first full-length recording was deafening. It takes determination and talent to make waves when you come from the dust and dirt of El Paso, but The Dirty River Boys prove they’re up to the challenge by fusing traditional folk instruments with rock and bluegrass arrangements to blaze a trail all their own. The Dirty River Boys’ style blows away any preconceived notions of what acoustic music can be. Harmonicas and fiddles cut melodies that blend with furious licks spilling from guitars and mandolins alongside explosive percussive rhythms all combined to create a whirling dervish of musicality.

Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is equal parts Dr. Seuss and Dr. Dre, mixing music genres into multi-instrumental, musically sophisticated, lyrically intelligent classics. With an authentic feel that resonates from packed park jams in the South Bronx to sold-out shows at The Smithsonian, 23 Skidoo is the pioneer of positive family hip-hop music. Eight number one hits on SiriusXM, glowing reviews from Time, USA Today, People and NPR’s All Things Considered, performances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and LegoLand, plus a 2015 Grammy nomination, the Skidoo crew is spreading the wordplay far and wide. After a decade of sharing the stage with Mos Def, Run DMC and P-FUNK, 23 Skidoo now hits the road with his daughter, Saki (aka MC Fireworks), and his wife, Brooke (aka Bootysattva), and a line-up that features rapping, singing, sweet harmonies, Motown-inspired dance moves and classy purple suits.

Persuasive percussion and melodic mood manipulation

Spoonfed Tribe combines Indie rock and art/rock into its own hybrid sound, best described as sounding like Nine Inch Nails meets Rusted Root or Alice In Chains meets Jane’s Addiction. However, there is an unmistakable groove, fueled by a stage full of drums and percussion, and the live show — as much a visual as an auditory experience — often evolves into a mesmerizing, hypnotic, tranced-out dance party, punctuated by heavy guitar riffs and lyrical content inspired by the band’s mission: Spoonfed Tribe is us, it’s you and it’s everybody on this plane now. We are all “spoon fed” information and intention. Spoonfed Tribe’s goal is to touch as many as possible through music and words. Since their inception in 1999, the Tribe has released eight records and toured the country, performing at clubs and large gatherings such as Lollapalooza, High Sierra Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Voodoo Music Experience and Wakarusa, sharing bills with a diverse mix of talent, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flaming Lips, Nine Inch Nails, Blues Traveler, Widespread Panic, Galactic and Filter. Along the way they have built a loyal following and garnered critical acclaim and a handful of music awards, including the Fort Worth Weekly Music Award for Best Hard Rock Band (2008), Rock Album of the Year for 2008’s Public Service Announcement and Best Live Act in 2009.

Award-winning documentary about female artists

playing the music they loved

They wiggled, they jiggled, they wore low cut gowns and short shorts, they kowtowed to the club owners and smiled at the customers — and they did it all, just to play the music they loved. In the 1930s and ’40s, hundreds of women musicians toured the country in glamorous All-Girl Bands, while others played side by side with their male counterparts. Yet by the mid-1950s, female jazz musicians had literally disappeared from the workplace, their names and their contributions to music completely forgotten. The Girls in the Band tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late ’30s to the present. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them. Today, there is a new breed of gifted young women taking their rightful place in the world of jazz, which can no longer deny their talents.

A big band legend lives on

Before the concert, plan to come early and see a special screening of the award-winning documentary, The Girls in the Band, shown in partnership with the Arlington Film Society at 6:15 p.m. Click here for more information on The Girls in the Band and watch a trailer. 

The first Glenn Miller Orchestra did not make it at all. It was a total and absolute economic failure. But Glenn knew what he wanted, held to that dedication and relentlessly worked to succeed. He launched his second band – the one that lives on today – in 1938, and The Glenn Miller Orchestra has been a timeless hit ever since. The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all dance bandleaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930s and ’40s. A matchless string of hit records, the constant impact of radio broadcasts and their drawing power at theaters, hotels and dance pavilions built and sustained the orchestra’s momentum of popularity. Glenn disbanded his musical organization in 1942 at the height of its popularity to volunteer for the Army. There, he organized and led the famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. It went to Europe to entertain servicemen performing numerous live and radio shows. On December 15, 1944, Major Miller took off in a single-engine plane from Europe to precede his band to France and disappeared over the English Channel, never to be seen again. The Army declared him officially dead a year later. With the release of the major motion movie, The Glenn Miller Story, featuring Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson in 1954, interest and popular demand led the Miller Estate to authorize forming today’s Glenn Miller Orchestra. On June 6, 1956, under the direction of drummer Ray McKinley, who had become the unofficial leader of the Army Air Force Band after Glenn’s disappearance, the reformed Glenn Miller Orchestra performed its first concert and has been on the road ever since. Other leaders have followed Ray, including clarinetists Buddy DeFranco and Peanuts Hucko, trombonists Buddy Morrow, Jimmy Henderson, Larry O’Brien and Gary Tole; and tenor saxophonist Dick Gerhart. Since January 2012, vocalist Nick Hilscher has led the band. Today, the 18-member ensemble continues to play the original Glenn Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries. In addition, the orchestra plays more modern selections arranged and performed in the Glenn Miller style and sound. Just as it was in Glenn’s day, the Glenn Miller Orchestra remains the most sought after big band in the world.

School of Rock

The world’s least-employable heavy metal guitarist is entrusted with the minds of upstate New York’s best and brightest in this fish-out-of-water comedy. Jack Black plays Dewey Finn, axe-bearer for a fitfully successful bar band determined to win a regional battle-of-the-bands competition. There’s only one thing standing in their way: The self-indulgent solos and crowd-diving antics of their “embarrassing” lead guitarist. When his band votes him out in favor of a would-be rock god, Dewey has to make the rent somehow, and after intercepting a call for his substitute-teacher roomie Ned (Mike White), the slacker finds himself in front of a class of elite elementary school students. At a loss for a lesson plan, Dewey takes offense at the pre-teen prodigies’ staid musical regimen and makes it his goal to preach them the gospel of The Who, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC with the ulterior motive of getting them to compete against his former band for a cash prize. No matter how willing his pupils, Dewey runs up against the consternation of the school’s stern headmistress Principal Mullins (Joan Cusack), the battle-of-the-bands’ promoter (Frank Whaley), and his identity-deprived roomie Ned.

One song in particular, Work it Out, found its way onto Spotify Playlists, blog reviews and iTunes party mixes in a matter of weeks and currently has more than 200,000 plays and has been a mainstay on Sirius XM AltNation, making its way into the top five of AltNation’s Alt 18 Countdown.

Folk/Americana meets rock ‘n’ roll

Described as a young band with an old soul, The Damn Quails started as a weekly jam session between two Oklahoma songwriters who met for a weekly gig that soon attracted all kinds of characters playing various instruments. The sessions started attracting a crowd, a semi-stable line-up was formed, and The Damn Quails were born. Since then, the band has firmly established itself as a touring entity hell bent on spreading their brand of music as far as possible. The Damn Quails carry on the great Oklahoma tradition of songwriting that draws from countless genres and has produced many memorable songs, bands, singers and moments and forged a style they loosely refer to as folk/rock. Their first EP, Down the Hatch, quickly became a favorite of music critics and a growing legion of fans now referred to as “The Covey.”  Their second EP, Out of the Birdcage, was possible because of The Covey and a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign.

Grammy-winning Creole for Kidz

In 2009, Grammy Award-winning artist Terrance Simien got a call from Disney asking him to collaborate on a song for their first African-American Disney Princess in Princess & the Frog.

Funk-charged rock to get the party started

Noladelic powerfunk. That’s the sound Big Sam’s Funky Nation has been whipping up for more than a decade. It’s high-energy music that mixes funk, rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop and jazz into the same pot, melding everything together with the brassy influence and heavy grooves of New Orleans. From national performances at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits to hometown appearances at Voodoo Fest and Jazz Fest, Big Sam’s Funky Nation has built its reputation on stage. The band’s live performances are legendary, filled with blasts of brass, bursts of electric guitar, and the charisma of Big Sam, a trombonist and front man who sings, plays, dances and involves the audience in everything he does. You don’t just watch a Funky Nation show, you are part of the show, singing along with Big Sam whenever he demands a call-and-response. A native of New Orleans, Big Sam first rose to fame as a member of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band with a touring schedule that kept the trombonist on the road for 300 days a year. The group performed with bands from all genres, backing up Widespread Panic one minute before sharing the stage with Dave Matthews Band the next. Big Sam loved the variety that Dirty Dozen Brass Band offered, but he wanted his own group. He needed to sing, to engage the crowd and write his own songs. Inspired to chase down his dream, he formed Big Sam’s Funky Nation, reaching out to some of his favorite players from around the Big Easy to create his own super group with an impressive list of musical credentials. Big Sam and his colleagues shared the stage with U2 and Green Day for the emotional and energetic re-opening of the Superdome, and the band had a recurring role on the HBO series, Treme.

Recalling a time when we were merely freshmen

With a reputation for spectacular live performances, the genesis of multi-platinum artists, The Verve Pipe, can be traced back to the early ’90s when the principal members of two rival Michigan bands joined forces. After releasing two independent albums, I’ve Suffered A Head Injury and Pop Smear, the group quickly earned a regional following for its textured rock songs distinguished by innovative arrangements, soul-searching lyrics and layered vocals. Their 1996 platinum major label debut, Villains, featured the radio hit, Photograph, and the number one single, The Freshmen. Their follow-up release, the critically acclaimed, self-titled, The Verve Pipe, featured Hero, a Top 15 hit at Modern Rock radio. In 2001, they released Underneath, which produced the singles, Happiness Is and Never Let You Down, one of the most played songs for Adult Top 40 and radio that year. The album also included Colorful, the ballad featured in the film and its soundtrack, Rock Star, starring Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston. In addition to their success on radio and in TV and film, they racked up sold-out concerts, features in Spin and Rolling Stone, and videos on MTV. They also made numerous appearances on The Late Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with David Letterman. In 2014, The Verve Pipe released their first rock album in more than 13 years with Overboard, a collection of 10 new songs, including Crash Landing, Hit and Run, and the title track. The Verve Pipe continues to tour, including special appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Festival, Hangout Music Festival and SummerStage in Central Park.

Real life, real country music

Authenticity. Self-reliance. Hard work. Camaraderie. Gratitude. These are the qualities Zane Williams sings about in his rootsy anthem, Texas Like That, the title track of his fifth studio album, so it comes as no surprise that these are also the qualities that describe his rapidly growing music career. Respected by his fans, The Zaniacs, as a down-to-earth family man, Zane is a also a charismatic entertainer and a prolific songwriter who wrote all 10 of his new album’s tracks. It’s a rare combination of abilities that just may make him a superstar, especially among country music fans hungry for an alternative to today’s pop and hip-hop influenced “bro country.” Zane strikes a delicate balance of Texas authenticity with a bit of Nashville polish, but by capturing the best of both worlds, he creates a sound all his own that’s a refreshing change for fans of either music scene. Zane is an anomaly in today’s country music — equal parts bar-room entertainer and introspective poet. If you ask his Zaniacs what it is they love about the man and his music, they might tell you it’s his genuine smile, the way his songs seem to come straight from the heart or how he sings about real life in a way that real people can relate to.

A celebration of songwriting

Brad Thompson’s musical roots started at an early age. Both of his parents were avid music fans and musicians. Brad’s earliest memories are of his dad picking out Luther Perkin’s guitar parts off of Johnny Cash’s albums. Brad’s mom, an accomplished vocalist and pianist, tried her hand at classical guitar, but when it didn’t work out, she handed her guitar to 12-year-old Brad, who started taking private lessons. As a student at the University of North Texas, Brad became friends with singer/lyricist Eddie Allen and within two years of entering college, they both pursued music full time, writing and performing at clubs like The Hop in Fort Worth, Poor David’s Pub in Dallas, the Kerrville Folk Festival and other havens for young songwriters. Brad went solo in 1992 and has recorded seven CDs. His songwriting and performances show the influences of Michael Hedges, Lyle Lovett, Jeff Buckley, Toad the Wet Sprocket and Counting Crows.

A native Texan rocks the blues

A lifelong Texan, Buddy Whittington became enamored of the electric guitar like countless others in his Baby Boomer generation. None of his family members played an instrument, but there was always music in his Fort Worth home, from the TV on Saturday evenings during Cowtown Jamboree and Big D Jamboree or from the AM radio dial with KXOL, KFJZ, KLIF, KKDA, WBAP, WRR and KNOK providing a variety of sounds and styles to open and expand a young would-be musician’s ears long before the advent of “underground” album rock stations like KFAD and KNUS, Q102 and KZEW (The Zoo). Western swing also played a role, as Mr. and Mrs. Whittington were big fans of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Probably the biggest influence in young Bud’s musical makeup was the record collection of his big sister, with everything from British Invasion bands to R&B hits from Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Gary “U.S.” Bond, Jimmy Reed and Slim Harpo. A succession of fledgling musical efforts with varying degrees of success ensued, culminating in an offer by John Mayall to join The Bluesbreakers in 1993. He appeared in countless Bluesbreakers’ shows and recordings worldwide for 15 years until 2008, when John Mayall decided to restructure the band. Buddy’s self-titled solo CD debuted in 2007, and garnered favorable reviews and considerable airplay. The CD, recorded at Hurricane Sound in Garland, features performances by Mike Gage, longtime bassist Wayne Six and guitarist Michael Mayes, and same artists who make up the core of Buddy’s current working band.

Queen of Southern boogie and roadhouse blues

The title track of Marcia Ball’s most recent album, The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man, is an irresistible tale of true love at the traveling carnival. It’s a story that only Marcia could spin, filled with vivid details, universal truths, and a rambunctious sense of fun. With raucous horns punctuating Marcia’s legendary piano pounding and emotional, melodic vocals, the song kicks off an 12-song CD that mixes Gulf Coast blues, New Orleans R&B, swampy Louisiana ballads, and jumping, Tex-Mex-flavored zydeco into a musical gumbo, a sound Marcia has been perfecting over the course of her legendary career. Born in Orange, Texas, to a family whose female members all played piano, Marcia grew up in Vinton, La., right across the border from Texas. She began taking piano lessons when she was 5, playing old Tin Pan Alley tunes from her grandmother’s collection. From her aunt, Marcia heard more popular music, but it wasn’t until she was 13 that Marcia discovered the power of soul music. The musical storyteller has earned worldwide fame for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she strolls onto the stage. Her groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking Gulf Coast blues have made her a favorite with music fans all over the world. In 2010, she was inducted into the Gulf Coast Hall Of Fame, and in 2012, into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. She’s received six Living Blues Awards, nine Blues Music Awards and five Grammy Award nominations. Marcia has been featured on leading television and radio programs, including Austin City Limits and NPR’s Fresh Air and Piano Jazz. She performed in Piano Blues, the film directed by Clint Eastwood that was included in Martin Scorsese’s The Blues series that aired on PBS. Marcia also has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman with The New Orleans Social Club, which helped benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. Marcia has been featured on the covers of The Austin Chronicle and Blues Revue magazine and has been in countless lead stories in entertainment sections of publications around the country.

Grammy-winning classic country with a Hispanic heritage

During the mid-1990s, Grammy Award-winner Rick Trevino emerged as one of the first popular Hispanic singers in country music since the mid-1970s, when Freddy Fender and Johnny Rodriguez were recording hits. He racked up several hits over the next few years with his Garth Brooks-inspired blend of new country and album rock. Rick was born into a musical family – his father was a member of a local Tejano group. Both of his parents fostered his musical interests, and as a child, he listened to a variety of music, including Tejano, country, classical pianist Van Cliburn, and mainstream pop/rockers like Elton John and Billy Joel. Rick’s first album, the Spanish-language Dos Mundos, was accompanied by a single release of Just Enough Rope, which was released in English, Spanish and a bilingual version – the first traditional country single to be released in both Spanish and English. Rick’s hits include the Top 40 single, Honky Tonk Crowd, and two Top 10 singles, She Can’t Say I Didn’t Cry and Doctor Time. Rick won a Grammy Award in 1998 as part of Los Super Seven, an all-star band that included Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Freddy Fender, Joe Ely, and Flaco Jimenez.

Gutsy garage swagger

When the last seconds of 2011 ticked to a close, the members of Oil Boom drew a collective sigh of relief. Although they had released their six-song debut EP, Black Waxy, and earned thumbs-ups from music critics and their expanding fan base, the band was enduring growing pains, and something was lacking. That something turned out to be bassist Steve Steward (Darth Vato, Epic Ruins), longtime staple of the Fort Worth music community and more importantly, a fan of Oil Boom. The reformed trio gradually constructed a brand new identity – one deferential to their musical past, but clearly looking ahead toward their sonic future. The updated version of Oil Boom retains the gutsy garage swagger of its previous incarnation, but adds a stronger emphasis on the quirky pop influences of its members. Their most recent recording, Red Metal, was released in 2014.

World-famous New Orleans music machine

In 1977, the Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club in New Orleans began showcasing a traditional Crescent City brass band. It was a joining of two proud, but antiquated, traditions. Social and pleasure clubs dated back over a century to a time when black southerners could rarely afford life insurance, and the clubs would provide proper funeral arrangements. Brass bands, early predecessors of jazz as we know it, would often follow the funeral procession playing somber dirges, then once the family of the deceased was out of earshot, burst into jubilant dance tunes as casual onlookers danced in the streets. By the late ’70s, few of either existed. The Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club decided to assemble this group as a house band, and over the course of these early gigs, the seven-member ensemble adopted the name The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Thirty years later, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world-famous music machine, whose name is synonymous with genre-bending romps and high-octane performances. They have revitalized the brass band in New Orleans and around the world, progressing from local parties, clubs, baseball games and festivals in their early years to touring nearly constantly in the United States and in more than 30 countries on five continents. The Dirty Dozen has been featured on albums by artists that include David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Dr. John and the Black Crowes.

A West Texas poet’s enduring country music

The position that Radney Foster enjoys in the country music landscape is remarkable. For 30 years, Radney has thrived as a songwriter, recording artist, live performer and producer. His songs, solo and recorded by other artists, have topped the country, Americana, and AAA charts alike. At the same time, he’s earned the respect of his peers and a devoted audience as intent on listening as they are eager to dance. Radney grew up in two worlds: herding cattle on horseback at his grandfather’s East Texas ranch in the summer and hunkering over a transistor radio in his West Texas hometown, listening to border radio that played country to conjunto. That hybrid of influences may be why Radney has always been tough to categorize. His first success was with the seminal country/cowpunk duo Foster & Lloyd, whose first single, Crazy Over You, went straight to number one. His subsequent solo albums told tales through a honky-tonk lens and yielded enduring hits, Just Call Me Lonesome and Nobody Wins. Considered an elder statesman of Texas singer/songwriters, Radney has written and produced songs for Randy Rogers, Jack Ingram, Kacey Musgraves, Wade Bowen, Josh Abbott, Pat Green, Cory Morrow and many others. His songs are regularly mined by superstar acts like Keith Urban (Raining on Sunday, I’m In), Sara Evans (Real Fine Place, Revival) and the Dixie Chicks (Godspeed). Radney has performed with Charley Pride and Asleep at the Wheel and performed at the Black Tie & Boots Inaugural Ball in Washington, DC, during President Obama’s inaugural festivities.

The band who took us to Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Deep Blue Something blasted out of Denton in 1995 when their hit, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, slowly began to dominate radio. At the time, there was a DIY attitude among bands, and that’s what Deep Blue Something did — start making records and hitting the road with an Indie budget, Indie resources and a dozen tight Indie/alt-rock songs. When a local rock club in Lubbock used a snippet of Breakfast at Tiffany’s in a radio ad, listeners besieged stations with calls asking about the tune. The demand was so great that programmers put the song in regular rotation, and CDs began to sell. After a year of nonstop touring, truck stop cafeteria food and “Breakfast with DBS” morning radio shows, the band circled back to Dallas. They released their second album themselves, then a third self-titled release in 2001 before the group drifted apart. Band members went on with other projects, producing bands like Flickerstick, Drowning Pool, Calhoun and The Nadas and a record label, Kirtland Records, whose roster includes The Toadies, Sarah Jaffe and The Polyphonic Spree. Then one day, they started talking about getting the band back together. Since the members live far apart and have families, they decided to do an EP instead of a full-length album. Deep Blue Something wound up with five new songs for the EP, Locust House. The final track, Winsome, was actually the first of the new songs to come together about a fascination with people, their relationship to cars and how getting into a car transforms them. The strength and focus of Locust House makes it hard to believe Deep Blue Something was on a 14-year hiatus. It’s also a logical progression for the band, demonstrating that they never lost the connection they built in their early days having Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
