Kelly
My repertoire covers favorites from the classic rock era such as The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, James Taylor and Jim Croce, to the newer pop hits of today. (See song list) In addition to guitar and vocals I play harmonicas, thereby adding an extra "voice" to my sound. I also utilize a loop sampler. This is a footswitch-controlled echo effect, which allows me to play two or more guitar parts simultaneously. Because it "echoes" the phrase that I have just played, nothing is pre-recorded, and each show is one-of-a-kind. This means that I have a fuller, bigger sound and can play a wider variety of music than many would expect from a soloist.

He says he felt passionate about music since he was about 11 years old when he started to take guitar lessons. His father had a lot of influence in his love for music. They used to play together the songs that Marcelo wrote. His father always took him to listen to jazz. At this time, listening to jazz gave Marcelo another perspective since he was a rock fanatic.

TuTu Jones
The son of Dallas-based R&B guitarist Johnny B. Jones, “Tutu” Jones was truly a product of his environment -- growing up in a house frequently populated by guests including Freddie King, Little Joe Blue and Ernie Johnson, his own future as a bluesman was never in doubt. Born John Jones Jr. on September 9, 1966 in South Dallas, Texas. As a child, Tutu was constantly surrounded by blues luminaries such as Ernie Johnson, Little Joe Blue, and even Jones’ uncle L.C. Clark who was a fine guitar player in his own right. Tutu grew up steeped in in-house jam sessions of truly stellar quality. He was 4 ½ years old when he first began his musical career as a drummer. “Next thing I know, I’m playin’ drums in some club in Southeast Dallas,” says Tutu. Jones turned pro with R.L. Griffin, with whose band Tutu took on the road. He became a professional drummer while still a teen, backing his uncles Curly "Barefoot" Miller and L.C. Clark before moving on to work with the likes of Z.Z. Hill and R.L. Burnside. His life became a dizzying mélange of tours and Texas dates, hiring out as drummer for Z.Z. Hill, Al “TNT” Braggs, Ernie Johnson, and Little Joe Blue.

The California Honeydrops
Growing bigger and gathering steam, the Honeydrops have expanded from an acoustic street trio to a full band: piano and keyboards, electric bass, and additional percussion round out their sound. Beyond the band’s shared musical vision remains a greater purpose: to make people dance, sing, and enjoy themselves. The Honeydrops’ music speaks not just to the heart and soul, but also to the body; people have no choice but to dance. Drawing heavily on Southern soul and Bay Area R&B with twist of New Orleans second-line street music, the Honeydrops defy genres. Their style may not have a name, but one thing is certain: The California Honeydrops don’t just play music. They throw parties.

The Robert Cray Band
As ever with Robert Cray’s undefinable sound, the music on This Time remains stubbornly beyond category. He has been internationally admired as a stylist whose innovations have brought new life to the blues, and such punchy outings as “Chicken in the Kitchen” and “That’s What Keeps Me Rockin’” should satisfy the most demanding blues fans. But the new album’s barrier-busting material – whether it’s the soulful “Love 2009” or the profound balladry of “This Time” and “Forever Goodbye” – demonstrate once again that attempting to slot Cray in a single genre is an exercise in futility. Blues is one of the foundations of our music, but it’s not all that we play,” Cray says. “When I first started playing guitar, I wanted to be George Harrison – that is, until I heard Jimi Hendrix. After that, I wanted to be Albert Collins and Buddy Guy and B.B. King. And then there are singers like O.V. Wright and Bobby Blue Bland. It’s all mixed up in there.

Eddie Palmieri Latin Jazz Band
Eddie Palmieri, known for his charismatic power and bold innovative drive, has a musical career that spans over 50 years as a bandleader of Salsa and Latin Jazz orchestras.  With a discography that includes 36 titles, Mr. Palmieri has been awarded nine Grammy Awards.  Born in Spanish Harlem in 1936, Eddie began piano studies at an early age, as did his celebrated older brother, the late Salsa legend and pianist, Charlie Palmieri.  For Latin New Yorkers of Eddie’s generation, music was a vehicle out of El Barrio.  At age 11, he auditioned at Weil Recital Hall, which is next door to Carnegie Hall, a venue as far from the Bronx as he could imagine.  Possessed by a desire to play the drums, Palmieri joined his uncle’s orchestra at age 13, where he played timbales.  Says Palmieri, “By 15, it was good-bye timbales and back to the piano until this day.  I’m a frustrated percussionist, so I take it out on the piano.” Eddie Palmieri embraces the future of his music by blazing a distinctive musical path to the delight of fans across the globe.  He has one of the most actively touring Salsa and Latin Jazz orchestras to date, tours of which have taken him to Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America, North Africa and throughout the Caribbean.  A true powerhouse of brilliance known for his astute arranging skills and historic compositions, Mr. Palmieri has shown that time is infinite with respect to his repertoire as he continues to thrill audiences with his legendary style.

Maybe you’ve avoided it because you just didn’t know any better. Luke Wade & The No Civilians are (probably) not ever going to be “Texas Country” perennials, but I highly doubt that’ll ever be a concern Wade and company. Rather, he’s just interested in you giving them a chance to impress you with his mash-up of sometimes funky, often soulful, sometimes folky, always smooth ballads and stunning rockers.

Unknowingly connected for decades through friends in and out of the music business, when they finally met sparks flew - musical and otherwise. Through the years they have played, written and recorded with musicians and producers associated with heavyweights such as The Wallflowers, Alanis Morissette, and Chuck Rainey. Growing up in the heart of Texas their respect for the songwriter on the stool runs deep. But they prefer to start with Steve’s penchant for rock and roll and old school R&B grooves; add in Hilary’s crystal crisp vocals, then bring it back around to that songwriter on the stool. Now you’ve got an idea of what their music is about.

We're heading in a new direction and trying to do something not every cover band does. Our goal was to come up with a set list second-to-none, carefully engineered, and put together in 8.5 minutes. Actually, the Poo set is a carefully constructed plethora of music from 1968 to 98. Not to exclude any genre. The Poo mixes in eighties, pop rock, love ballads, new wave, country, pop Divas, and even sitcom themes.

The Rhythmators
Originally from Fort Worth, The Rhythmators first came together as sidemen for Texas roadhouse legend Delbert McClinton. Originally known as PUMP, with fellow Texan Randy Cobb on guitar. The band’s first regular gigs were in Colorado. They were so well received that they stayed on, much to the delight of the ski towns where their brand of Texas Soul Rockin’ Blues was a hit. They based out of Colorado for more than two years, developing their own style. When the opportunity to play with national acts came, they went their separate ways settling in different parts of the country. Clifton went to North Carolina, working the east coast to Key West, Dohoney to Los Angeles, CA and Stockton back to Texas via New Orleans, but they remained in touch. After touring with national and international acts, recording for major labels and on various television and film scores, as well as being in demand session players, the three Texans have come full circle to reunite as THE RHYTHMATORS. They are currently established on the DFW music scene as an R&B group performing their original music, as well as arrangements of blues and soul classics.

Through it all he sustained and even flourished as an independent artist releasing five albums, hundreds of digital singles, and fronting three bands simultaneously.

Indeed, in the era of Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, Larry g(EE) strives for something authentic and original, making a connection to eternal feelings through his music. Call it a proudly analog vision in a fully digital world.

Texas Tribute
People like to make their own choices. Everybody has their own favorite band, right?

Latin Express
Carlos D. Saenz began Latin Express in 1975 as a senior at Northside High School in Fort Worth, Texas. In 1979 he added his brother Leo who at the time was 14 years old and attending Trimble Tech High School. Since then, Carlos and Leo's children and nephews have become band members as well. Latin Express continues to be a main stay in the Dallas-Fort Worth Tejano music scene. Not only well known for Tejano, but also R&B, Latin Jazz and Salsa. One of the main reasons for the group's longevity, is the group's dedication to tradition and musical values that are rarely seen today. For example the group continues to perform with a full horn section composed of trumpets, trombones, and saxes, with a tight knit rhythm section of bass, guitar, drums and keyboards, and four vocalists. Therefore, they are able to play many musical varieties at moments notice.
