We are so proud of our roster, representing with class and grace and much rock and roll in the midst of utter chaos! What a wild ride this year.

AKINA ADDERLEY & THE VINTAGE PLAYBOYS  “Just a few moments of unforgettable jam “Attitude” and you’ll be hooked on this nine-member Austin soul band. Frontwoman and songwriter Adderley is a commanding, joyous force. ” – DEBORAH SENGUPTA STITH – AUSTIN 360

“An amazing triple bill on Saturday with Nakia Reynoso of TV show, The Voice, SXSW performing artist, Akina Adderley and the consistently amazing, Hard Proof playing original Afrobeat songs joined forces at The Mohawk for an extended dance party. An unusually pleasant Texas evening segued into a an all-out jam beginning with Hard Proof early to get the crowd moving, then Akina Adderley and the Vintage Playboys then headliner, the always entertaining, Nakia. ” – GREG ACKERMAN – AUSTIN CONCERTS EXAMINER

THE AUSTIN BIKE ZOO “Austin is a serious biking city, as anyone trying to dodge drunk cyclists on a Saturday night knows. But the scariest bike we saw during SXSW is the Rattlesnake, an 80-foot, 34-wheel contraption that seats six riders in its belly and looks kinda like a Chinese New Year’s dragon might if you chewed on one mushroom too many. It’s one of the fantasies made by the Austin Bike Zoo, a crew of puppeteers, bike builders and theater types whose intent is mainly to blow minds, which in fact they do quite well.”  – ROLLING STONE 

“In between show artists like the Austin Bike Zoo as living thing, young and dynamic artists and digital scene in the Texas capital is.” – MARCUS SCHULER

“Sounds like an absolutely, delightful, wonderful little jangle pop band.” – CARTER DELLORO – OVERLOAD

“Their guitarist, Steven Schayer, is really, really good and really fun to watch.” – ROBIN SINHABABU – OVERLOAD

ELIZABETH MCQUEEN “Austin favorite Elizabeth McQueen was with the legendary band Asleep at the Wheel for eight years before making the decision to go solo. With her sultry, beautiful voice she is already making quite a splash on her own with her new CD, The Laziest Remix. She has already been featured in the Austin Chronicle, Texas Monthly, and Austin 360. With a national tour underway, Elizabeth will be playing her official showcase with The Brothers Lazaroff on Thursday, March 13th at Shotguns at 9PM.” – GINA SIGILLITO – AUSTIN LOCAL MUSICIAN EXAMINER
“Making name for herself as one of the music city’s most infectious voices. Known for her beautiful and timeless vocal style and buoyant and joyous live shows, she quickly became the one one to watch upon her arrival in Texas. One short year after settling in Austin, she was named by the Austin Chronicle as a young musician to watch.” -DIANE SCOTT – THE CONTINENTAL CLUB

THE FLESHTONES  “The Fleshtones demolished the divide between stage and audience during “Real Good Time Together,” with band members stepping deep into the crowd and leading it through the song’s chorus well after they stopped playing their instruments.” – GARY GRAFF – BILLBOARD

 “The veteran garage rock act tore into “Real Good Time Together,” an incendiary performance complete with gray-haired crowd-surfing and an audience sing-along that continued after the band stopped playing.” – JOE LYNCH – FUSE

“The ageless Fleshtones marching up the down the theater’s aisles leading the audience in a singalong to “Real Good Time Together”” – JIM TESTA – jerseybeat.com

“20 Artists You Must See at SXSW This Week” – PLEDGE MUSIC

RAINA ROSE “On Instagram, Steve Poltz summed up the highs and lows of a beautiful night gone horribly awry: SXSW- hectic. 1-saw Raina Rose play her official showcase last night. She had a full band and it was REALLY good. Loved it. Her voice equals beauty.” – MATTHEW T. HALL – UT SAN DIEGO 

“SXSW Interview: Raina Rose, Folk music ‘only exists in a community” – WILLIAM HARRIES GRAHAM – AUSTIN CHRONICLE

STEVE WYNN “Other significant highlights included Spandau Ballet’s rich treatment of “Satellite of Love,” Sean Lennon’s unrehearsed by still affecting “What Goes On” and Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3’s “Coney Island Baby.”   
“But the moments of musical transcendence were much more plentiful and thoroughly unforgettable. Among them: Steve Wynn with a heartbreaking “Coney Island Baby” and, fronting the Baseball Project as Mike Mills of R.E.M. and my old friend Linda Pitmon held down the rhythms, an epic, eardrum-threatening “Sister Ray”” – JIM DEROGATIS – WBEZ 91.5, CHICAGO
“Steve Wynn earned his place in rock history during the Eighties with the Dream Syndicate, a leading light of L.A.’s Paisley Underground psych-pop movement. Since then, he’s enjoyed an acclaimed solo career, though he’s currently savoring a well-received Dream Syndicate reunion” – MICHAEL TOLAND – AUSTIN CHRONICLE
SWM3 “Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3 rode waves of dynamic ups and downs beautifully throughout the cinematic “Coney Island Baby.” – Peter Blackstock – AUSTIN 360
 “I think that SW+M3 are the best rock band out there.  This short but intense and cathartic set just proves that point. A home run!” – ELIOT – nowiveheardeverything.com

They recommend gin & tonic, gin & juice, gin & ginger beer, gin martinis, I would like to step it up a notch and invite you to play mixologist with me. Let’s be creative! I am counting on you.
