I was honored to be a guest on KNBT’s Turntables program with Mattson Rainer last night. 2 plus hours of songs that mean something to the guest DJ. We went on a musical journey of songs that are important to me and promoted River Jam.  While preparing, Mattson told me to pick songs that meant something to me, for whatever reason (trivial or deep). I did just that.  It was a blast to share these stories and songs.

River Jam

Our inaugural River Jam is coming.  July 28-30, 2017.

3 days.  3 venues. 25 artists.

Fri July 28–near the banks of the San Marcos River sits the hallowed hall that is Cheatham Street Warehouse.  A place that puts the sake of the song above all else.  Few young artists have captured that spirit of song to a greater degree than Red Shahan.  We are proud to have Red and his full band kicking our event off on Friday night, July 28 at Cheatham Street Warehouse.

CSW Preview Party Tickets——–> https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1490966/

Sat July 29–at the point where River Road juts off from city life, you will find the gem that is known as River Road Icehouse.  Home to music aficionados, biker enthusiasts, college revelers, river rats and good time chasers everywhere.  We are proud to offer an eclectic line-up that is equal parts soul, roots, country, rock, folk and Americana.  Josh Weathers, Prophets & Outlaws, K Phillips and Haley Cole will all have their full bands up on the mainstage.  Austin Gilliam will be tearing up the side stage.

Sun July 30--located right around the corner from the famous Guadalupe River chute is the family owned river outfitter/burger joint/wedding venue/bar known as Lone Star Floathouse.  The best place in Comal County to grab a bite, a brew and a tune. Sundays are reserved for church and this is no different. An array of acoustic acts featuring Josh Grider,  John Baumann, Austin Meade, Jackie Darlene, Nate Rodriguez, Clayton Landua, Kensie Coppin and many more will take you on a spiritual musical journey as you are serenaded by the roaring waters of the Guad mere steps from the stage.

No ticket or armband required—it’s FREE!  But, please bring some cash to tip the artists with.  You’ll also want some cold Lone Star and a patty melt.

River Jam Artist Preview: Nate Rodriguez

Nate Rodriguez is one of the most talented individuals we’ve ever showcased.  His voice is rich in soul, power and range.  The original songs he writes are slices of the Victoria, TX upbringing he endured.  Playing sideman as a lead guitarist and drummer has helped Rodriguez hone his skills and sharpen his artistic focus.  … Read the rest

River Jam Artist Preview: Josh Weathers

Josh Weathers returns to our event as a bonafide headliner and a career picking up momentum at a rapid clip. Weathers refers to his music as “Texas soul music” and it’s definitely that.  Influenced as much by George Strait as by Prince or equal parts Delbert McClinton and Otis Redding, Weathers’ music showcases threads of country, rock, soul, funk and R&B.  … Read the rest
