The Marshall Hood Band

Marshall Hood, with effortless guitar work and a knack for crafting the most charming of songs – so reminiscent of his Uncle Champ, it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference. Marshall’s songs can’t be pigeonholed into any one category – they transcend genre. But with a keen lyrical sense and subtly catchy melodies to match, it won’t matter what you call it, you’ll be too busy humming along.

Anthony Ray Wright

Anthony Ray Wright plays fast fingered bluegrass and old-timey, boot scootin’ country for fans of Hank Williams and the Foggy Mountain Boys. Hear him yodel like Hank on “Long Gone Lonesome Blues” and recall cotton fields, cattle ranches and all-night honky tonks in his more melodic take on Wayne Hancock’s “Flatland Boogie,” all with smooth emotive vocal lines reminiscent of Johnny Cash.  – Texas Music Magazine

The Merles

The Merles are a classic country/western swing band based out of South Austin, TX. They play a mix of originals and covers by their favorite artists, such as Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, Ernest Tubb, and of course, Merle Haggard.
