Texas Dancehall, Honky-Tonk Country music band. We are a 7 piece band featuring a steel guitar and fiddle to play all of your favorite 2-stepping favorites. Sure, we play the waltzes and jitterbugs too, but no matter, when you are on the dancefloor with our music, you will be enjoying your night.
I saw George for the first time at Charlie's Bar in Winnie... and I was just blown away by the talent these guys have. George has a great voice and he knows all the classics, and not a single member of the band was anything but stellar. The fiddle player is incredible, and I had the pleasure of seeing keyboardist David Young in the studio during a different occasion. They are both also incredibly gifted players. Everyone at Charlie's was out on the floor having a good time, it seemed like. These guys really know how to work a crowd, and when I approached them during a brief rest to compliment their sound, they were all incredibly courteous! It's so rare for such talented musicians to be so kind to fans. Now I go see them every chance I get! I would encourage any Texan to do the same.

I was raised in the dancehalls of Texas. I learned to two-step and enjoy country music listening to Johnny Bush, Merle Haggard and Ray Price. I learned to play guitar and formed my first band at 15 and began to play wherever I could.
We are a 7 piece band that features Steel Guitar, Fiddle, and Keyboards. Of course, we have a drummer, bass player and I play guitar. We play all over the state of Texas and Louisiana. We can provide sound and lights and our setlist can keep your feet moving all night long.
We are currently (January 2018) working on our first studio project and hope to have it completed by March 2018. We have drawn from our influences over the years and worked with some of the top writers in Nashville to create our project. We are excited to play this new music for you, as well as, our old standards.
