Mayeux and Broussard
Mayeux (pronounced “MY-YOU”) and Broussard is a Country/Blues/Americana act from Austin, Texas. Formed in the Summer of 2011, the band consists of singer-songwriter’s Tate Mayeux and Brian Broussard, and their band members Taylor Englert (Drums), Misha Ben-David (Bass). Mayeux and Broussard have been performing relentlessly with their full band all over Austin and the state of Texas. Their blend of gritty Texas country and swampy blues is quickly finding its place in Texas music. Their debut album “While The Gittin’s Good” was released November 8, 2012.
Tate Mayeux and Brian Broussard make the kind of country music that wouldn’t have been completely out of place at Gilley’s in its Urban Cowboy heyday. It has the requisite fiddle runs and Tele riffs, along with a lazy Texas swagger that Mayeux compares to Hayes Carll. But these guys — Texans, both — aren’t afraid to get a little bit dirtier than Johnny Lee or Kenny Rogers ever did. And that’s exactly what they do on their upcoming High Times & Good Rhymes, the follow-up to 2012’s While the Gittin’s Good.

Palomino Shakedown is a new American music sensation from Austin Tx. Combining the influences of Country, Southern Soul, and Rock n’ Roll, Palomino Shakedown delivers original music that appeals to the head, the heart and the hips.
Palomino Shakedown is the result of the natural evolution of Austin Honky Tonk heavyweights Horse Opera.The line up that came together at the end of 2014, organically began combining styles and sounds in a new direction, and it became clear that it was now more than a country band, and deserved its own chance, its own name.
