Upcoming Events At This Venue

October 21

Grammy-nominated musician and Bass Player Hall of Famer

Lee Rocker and the Stray Cats sold more than 10 million records, garnered an astounding 23 gold and platinum records worldwide, and were music video pioneers of MTV. The Stray Cat’s worldwide mega hits, “Stray Cat Strut,” “Sexy and Seventeen” and “Rock this Town” have become part of the fabric of rock ‘n’ roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included “Rock this Town” as one of the 500 most important songs in rock. From the cover of Rolling Stone to appearing on Saturday Night Live, headlining the US Festival and touring with the Rolling Stones, Lee Rocker has seen and done it all. In addition to the Stray Cats and the Stones, he has toured and performed with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell and John Fogerty. Lee and his father Stanley Drucker (classical clarinetist) both received Grammy nominations in 1982, something that has occurred only twice in Grammy history. In 2012, Lee appeared on Broadway in the hit musical, Million Dollar Quartet, and in 2014, he was inducted into the Bass Player Hall of Fame. Lee has been consistently touring, recording and performing around the globe since 1980 and has cultivated a fanatically loyal following of rockers, rebels and all types of music lovers. He is known for making his upright double bass appear as if it were a lightweight instrument as he spins, throws it in the air, catches and plays it on stages throughout the world. His concerts are a time for him to tell stories about his days on the road and in the music business for the last 35 years, including sharing stories about his adventures lugging a giant piece of equipment around.

A masterful punk/alt-country/rock maverick

Renowned singer/songwriter and true believer, Alejandro Escovedo’s trailblazing career began with The Nuns, San Francisco’s famed punk innovators. He relocated to Texas, joining the Austin-based alt/country rock pioneers, Rank & File, then Texas-bred darlings, True Believers. Through all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of solo albums beginning with 1992’s acclaimed Gravity, Alejandro has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine’s Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two. His newest recording, Burn Something Beautiful, was released last year, Alejandro’s first solo endeavor since 2012’s highly acclaimed Big Station. At once a celebration of the rock-and-roll life, a contemplation on mortality, and the healing power of love, Burn Something Beautiful connects repeatedly with Alejandro’s soulful heart and voice at its core. The project is the collaboration of an esteemed group of musicians who give the album a genuine band feel. They include guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie), and saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos).
