Dave & Friends! Good food & service! A perfect evening in Austin, TX. So, Jan and I made the trip “up North”. Believe us, driving from home up there….we’re pretty sure there was only another mile or two to the Dallas city limits! 😳 (Yes, we’re exaggerating….but you get the picture. 🙂)
Unfortunately, we got there late (hey….we said it was a long drive!) so we weren’t front row like we prefer. But, that’s why they put zoom lenses in cameras! The music was perfect and that’s what counts. Thank you, Dave, for doing my favorites.
This is the view you get when you’re late. 🙂
What do you get when Bucky Buchanan, Benny McArthur, Ronnie Huckaby, Chris Whitten, Mike Daly, Dan Dreeben, and Steve DeLeon are all on stage at the same time? Great music including twin fiddles. Have guests like Dave Jorgenson, Roy Stewart, and others drop in and you’ve created a ‘Tuesday Country Night’!
The last night of Dobie’s birthday celebration was special. Besides great music, we took lots of pictures of the audience.
What’s better than the pictures? Seeing it in person! For a small cover charge and two hours of time, you’ll be treated to performances by the best Texan musicians.
Come join us some Tuesday! You’ll love it!
John and the band were booked into the Stardust for the first time the night of our birthdays. Of course that meant we were having the party there! Dave Jorgenson came in and was really impressed with the guys. Teree and Dobie took some great pictures of our friends and Albert’s “show” on the drums!
At the end of the evening, Kevin Fowler stopped by for the party. The band always does a couple of Kevin Fowler songs for us. John honored my request to repeat one of them. Imagine his surprise when then he came off stage and I introduced him to Kevin (not sure he’s ever forgiven me for that!)!
What a special, special night! Teree and I are honored to have so many sweet friends.
Elizabeth was one of the first with Birthday wishes. She even shared some of her fajitas from Texican Cafe!
Big Dean got Teree out on the dance floor.
They were joined by a lot of others
Albert still always has that smile!
Kathy came. It took Lloyd just 5 tries to get this snapshot.
John, Lissa, and Mike were helping Ronnie Smith celebrate his birthday as well. Sorry Ronnie didn’t make it into this picture!
Don got me on the dance floor for my favorite song, Neon Moon!
Then Elizabeth got Don out on a fast one.
John was singing his heart out and Albert was getting fancy.
Mike and Lew added to the party
You can always count on lots of dancers when they guys play.
Lots of dancers
Another song ends
Some of the dancers wait for the next tune.
John doesn’t disappoint them
Wow! Finally a clear shot at a picture of the band!
Of course there was the traditional ‘Butter Baby’ shot!
Not sure what that look is on my face. Don looks like he wishes he had another!
Lissa and John. He tried so hard to not have this picture taken. But, third time was the charm.
Another dancer looking for a partner.
Dave Jorgenson surprised us after he finished his gig in Kyle.
Not sure what Kevin was telling me, but, we’ll assume it was sweet! 😉
Elizabeth had to give Kevin a hug as well.
Then things started getting really crazy. Not sure why John didn’t want a picture of him dancing, but posed for this one!!
That poor beer bottle!
Sorry, Mike. Don’t think Gillian is quite big enough to protect you from ‘Ossifer Bill’!!
John Bendele and Dave Jorgenson. Two of the strongest voices we’ve heard in a long time.
Of course, Kevin was sweet to a fan that was in the club.
Not sure who had the guys’ attention, but they should have shared the joke with us!
Now that’s a birthday gift!! I’d adopt all three of these guys if their families ever decide to let them go!
Well, it’s a better picture of the guys, but Kevin’s arm was starting to get a little tight around my neck!
y the time Elizabeth got into the picture, Kevin had me in a full strangle hold! 😉
