{New Braunfels} Kori Free & The Groove Hounds Tribute to Heart

Tonight is FINALLY the night that Kori Free & The Groove Hounds get to lay it all on the stage and do a tribute show that is a decade in the making! Kori has been a huge Nancy Wilson/Heart fan for 10 years and is a personal friend of Nancy. In fact, Nancy gave Kori a custom built Epiphone Les Paul back in 2010 to help get Kori to the next level, and you’ll definitely see Kori playing it tonight at The Brauntex Theatre in New Braunfels so you can see how much Kori has far exceeded that next level! Kori,

{New Braunfels} Blowin’ Off Steamboat Music Festival 3

3 years ago the TX Citizen and myself (Music of New Braunfels) put together a music festival at Freiheit Country  Store in New Braunfels. It was a rare, beautiful day in January and the music was phenomenal.  When the day was over we scraped up all the proceeds, gave what we could to the musicians and made a donation to a local family that had tragically lost their mother. We decided to do it all over again in January 2014, and this time took all the proceeds and donated them to the leash free dog park that opened later in

{New Braunfels} Artist Spotlight: Smoke Wagon

With highly capable musicians in all corners and the recent addition of a clasically trained violinist turned fiddle queen, it really rounds out their sound and

{New Braunfels} Video: GREENFEST 14

It’s no surprise that GREENFEST 14 was an incredible day, it was put together by people that love what many of us love; good music.  It’s been a week since it ended, and I still have nothing to say other than WOW.  As good as many previous years have probably been, GREENFEST 13 was my first year to attend.  My friends at Galleywinter asked me to help promote the event and I was more than happy to, but once the day was upon us I did what I always do, went into low-budget photography mode.  Here’s what my iPhone and

{New Braunfels} Haggard, Bowen, Rogers

Whitewater Amphitheater set the bar high when they kicked of their 2014 live music season on Saturday, March 29th with Merle Haggard plus an opening set from Wade Bowen and Randy Rogers’ “Hold My Beer and Watch This” acoustic tour.  Wade and Randy took turns performing acoustic versions of their songs with Brady Black joining in on fiddle and Todd Laningham on guitar.  If you’re not familiar with this annual tour, they drink beer and swap songs and stories. It was an early show with Wade and Randy taking the stage at 7:30, but Whitewater was already starting to fill
