Bob Schneider
Possum Posse opens
$20pp - Kids 12 and Under Free

Bob Schneider is an Austin, Texas–based musician and artist.
He has mastered the art of keeping his audience on their toes, never knowing what will come next. Schneider dances to the tune of his own drum. Longtime fans will recognize Schneider’s trademark fusion of eclectic musical styles, innovative compositions, and intricate, emotion-filled lyrics. Schneider croons, drawing listeners in with the promise of romance. Then the energy shifts, the strings swell, and the songs turn seductively tangy, twisted.
Veering away from the traditional music video model, Schneider is instead honoring the cinematic feel of Burden of Proof by engaging the talents and artistic vision of twelve film directors. Directors include internationally renowned filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, who shot the video for Schneider’s AAA Radio hit “40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet)” from his 2009 album Lovely Creatures, and award-winning photographer and director Dan Winters, whose photograph and drawings grace Burden of Proof’s cover and liner notes.
Schneider’s artistic exploration is not limited to the stage or the studio. He is also a celebrated sculptor, painter, and poet with two published books of poetry and art and another one forthcoming.
With Burden of Proof, Bob Schneider delivers a much-heralded explosive addition to his already expansive artistic canon, a work of sophisticated craftsmanship and a wild ride to boot.

Americana/Country/Rock - Acoustic Song Swap
1-5pm - No Cover
at Luckenbach Texas
April 6, 2014 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He’s put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count. Is he near done? Hasn’t he done it all? Double hell no.
With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a “Texas Hill Country super-group” that features five great singers and four great songwriters from the heart of the Lone Star State, all of whom have made their own records and are flush with recording credits.
Onstage and in the studio, Wilkins is joined by Bill Small (bass, percussion, acoustic guitar), John M. Greenberg (electric guitars), Ramon Rodriguez (drums, percussion) and Marcus Eldridge (electric guitars). Live performances around Texas are being likened to both outlaw country and classic rock bands, and they’re captured on DIAMONDS IN THE SUN on Tex-centric label Palo Duro Records.
Wilkins says this is the most fun he’s ever had playing music in a band in 30 years. He describes the music of The Mystiqueros (nicknamed mq5) as highly reminiscent of ’70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements.

Josh Grider is a country songwriter/recording artist. His latest and greatest is the 4/29/14 release entitled 'Luck and Desire'. Josh’s confidence is unflappable. His mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics. He proudly says, “I'm not ashamed of one thing on this record. I love traditional country music, but I doubt anybody will call this a traditional country album. I’ve got all the respect in the world for what was done, but I also believe that you've got to keep moving the ball forward. New stuff has got to keep happening. I'm not going to do it better than Haggard did it, so I'm not going to try and do that. I need to sound like me. My goal is to be greater than the sum of my influences. Not better than, but distinguishable from. Hopefully that’s what you’ll hear in Luck & Desire.”

Drew Kennedy is a singer / songwriter from New Braunfels, Texas. He's been making a living writing songs since 2004. Americana

“Drew Kennedy released an album this week that got the whole town talking. well they should be listening. His album, "Wide Listener" is ridiculously good.”

Becker Vineyards Presents Live Music on The Verandah with Ben Beckendorf
MUSIC on The Verandah with Ben Beckendorf, EATS by Smokin’ Willies Smoked Meats,
WINE and Ambiance by Becker Vineyards

Ben Beckendorf was born in Austin Texas in the 50s. Texas was already in the groove of the Blues - with the likes of T-Bone Walker, Lightnin' Hopkins, Freddie King, and many more. Little did they know another bluesman had been born. His family moved to California for a while, then back to Texas, and eventually located in central Texas on a ranch just North of Fredericksburg. "The nearest neighbors we had were miles away, so my guitar became my best friend. I would spend hours a day listening to records and trying to figure out patterns on the guitar." Ever since he knew what a guitar was, Ben wanted one, and in 1964 Ben picked up his first guitar (it was a Gene Autry guitar that used to be his father's that he found in his Grandmother's attic) and never put it down. In 1965 Ben bought his first electric guitar (a used 1949 Kay electric guitar - which he still has). He learned all kinds of music - He liked the Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk,Country & Pop. He listened to his music heroes with a yearning ear. Unlike a lot of his friends, Ben liked to listen to Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Otis Rush, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, and many other Blues icons. " I was always fascinated by the way the old blues players would put their heart and soul into their music." Come and join us for this Hill Country Blues Man!

Rockbox Theater Presents - "Broadway's Best"
BROADWAY'S BEST is a title that is sure to bring a few poignant images to mind. Powerful moments of music accompanying passionate stories of heroes and their ladies. Before film was invented, the stage was the most modern and compelling way to tell a story, add music, and suddenly you have a dynamic and memorable way of conveying wonderful ideas, histories, and comedies. Even the film industry is taking a strong return to their Broadway roots with films like Les Miserables, Hairspray, Phantom of the Opera, etc.

Join us as we draw from the best of the best (for instance...the titles aforementioned) and create a powerful series of moments from the stories that have captured our hearts. From Rogers and Hammerstein to the shows of Broadway present, it's going to be a wonderful journey.

Showtimes are Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 4:30pm and 8pm

Americana/Country/Rock - Acoustic Song Swap
1-5pm - No Cover
at Luckenbach Texas
April 6, 2014 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He’s put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count. Is he near done? Hasn’t he done it all? Double hell no.
With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a “Texas Hill Country super-group” that features five great singers and four great songwriters from the heart of the Lone Star State, all of whom have made their own records and are flush with recording credits.
Onstage and in the studio, Wilkins is joined by Bill Small (bass, percussion, acoustic guitar), John M. Greenberg (electric guitars), Ramon Rodriguez (drums, percussion) and Marcus Eldridge (electric guitars). Live performances around Texas are being likened to both outlaw country and classic rock bands, and they’re captured on DIAMONDS IN THE SUN on Tex-centric label Palo Duro Records.
Wilkins says this is the most fun he’s ever had playing music in a band in 30 years. He describes the music of The Mystiqueros (nicknamed mq5) as highly reminiscent of ’70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements.

Josh Grider is a country songwriter/recording artist. His latest and greatest is the 4/29/14 release entitled 'Luck and Desire'. Josh’s confidence is unflappable. His mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics. He proudly says, “I'm not ashamed of one thing on this record. I love traditional country music, but I doubt anybody will call this a traditional country album. I’ve got all the respect in the world for what was done, but I also believe that you've got to keep moving the ball forward. New stuff has got to keep happening. I'm not going to do it better than Haggard did it, so I'm not going to try and do that. I need to sound like me. My goal is to be greater than the sum of my influences. Not better than, but distinguishable from. Hopefully that’s what you’ll hear in Luck & Desire.”

Drew Kennedy is a singer / songwriter from New Braunfels, Texas. He's been making a living writing songs since 2004. Americana

“Drew Kennedy released an album this week that got the whole town talking. well they should be listening. His album, "Wide Listener" is ridiculously good.”

Directions to Luckenbach from Fredericksburg:

Take Hwy 290 (Main St.) east for approximately 6 miles - toward Austin. Take a right on RR1376 (KOA Kampgrounds and Stagecoach Stop Shell Gas Station). Continue for 4.6 miles and take a right onto the Luckenbach Town Loop... just before the South Grape Creek Bridge.

HELPFUL HINTS:  When driving on RR 1376 DO NOT turn right onto the “Luckenbach-Cain City” Road – keep going. You will pass the large Feed Mill (Behrends Feed/”Uptown” Luckenbach) on your left. The next two rights after you pass Grapetown Road will be Luckenbach Town Loop. If you cross the South Grape Creek bridge you’ve gone too far.

Everything blue in the photo is bluebonnets, and yes, those black specks are people. Our photo doesn&#039;t do it justice. Photo by bluebonnetlove.com. — at <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Muleshoe-Bend-Recreation-Area/112176245535302?ref=stream" data-ft="&#123;&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;P&quot;&#125;" data-hovercard="/ajax/hovercard/page.php?id=112176245535302&amp;extragetparams=%7B%22directed_target_id%22%3Anull%7D">Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area</a>.
We've declared the Texas Bluebonnet field(s) at LCRA's Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area near Spicewood, Texas, this year's Texas Bluebonnet Field of Dreams. The bluebonnets line the shoreline of Lake Travis for at least a mile, if not more, and at times continue as far as the eye can see. It is literally an ocean of blue. And since no one photo or video can do this field justice, we've created this album to contain its beauty as best as we mere humans can capture it. Enjoy!

Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Wine Enthusiast named the Texas Hill Country, USA, NUMBER THREE on their list of the "10 Best Wine Travel Destinations 2014"!
"It’s still a sea of cowboy hats and pickup trucks, a place where you can sip award-winning wines in a landscape dotted with as many cacti as vines. Visitors may flock to Hill Country to sip wine, but they end up drinking in the romance of the Old West, too. - Alexis Korman

Texas Hill Country #1
on The New York Times
31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "

5 Eco-Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas

Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
