Greenfest Artist Preview: Micky and the Motorcars

MMC_newband1

Back in 2004, there was a young band starting to make waves in the Texas Music scene.  They were striving to get out of the shadow of their brothers’ band and carve out their own path.  One of their first big, Texas gigs was headlining GF04 alongside The Lost Trailers and Django Walker.  It was at the old Coppertank in Austin and we raged. It was a very cool, historic night.  Soonafter, the band flew up the ladder and caught on with audiences across the state and beyond.  Their songs were becoming radio staples and they had created their own identity.  11 years later, we’re more than proud to bring that band, Micky and the Motorcars, back to GF to rock the house once more.  MMC on the river…it doesn’t get much better.

Drew Kennedy has been a Greenfest anchor for the past nine years, as he has played in some capacity at each of the last ten events.  Since 2009, Drew has hosted our Lone Star Floathouse acoustic river jam portion.  His affable humor, immense talent and welcoming nature have been integral in making the Sunday part of Greenfest such a success.  We are excited to have him back once again in the thick of the Sunday activities at Floathouse.  Join us for what’s become a summer tradition:  Drew’s Floathouse Greenfest set.  You never know who will show up to sit in, listen or participate.  A parrot just might join in.

Greenfest Artist Preview: Dan Adams

Dan Adams first came on our radar a couple years ago via Adam Hood.  Adams was a fellow southeastern expat frustratingly plying his songwriting trade in Nashville.  Through meeting several folks involved in the scene down here, the Georgia native soon realized his music fit more in the Americana/Texas mold than that of the trucks […]
