Our favorite Texans are back with their spiffy vocal harmonies, polished steel guitar licks, and excellent instrumentals, laced with twisted humor and just-a-hair-short-of-traditional lyrics. With Conrad Deisler and Hank Card on guitars, Tom Pittman on banjo and Dobro, and recently inducted Lizards Bruce Jones on bass and Darcie Deaville on fiddle, mandolin, and quips, the group's sound and sensibility is part bluegrass, part country, part Cajun, and pure irreverence.

All performers are welcome to participate in this event that has produced some of our brightest performers, including: Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS! One unique aspect of our Open Mic is that, unlike those held in noisy bars where people show up in spite of the fact that there's live music, you will be playing to a supportive group of friends and performers who are actually listening!!!

A five-man rock band without instruments, The House Jacks offer a "no-holds barred" a cappella style that obliterates all preconceptions about the limits of the human voice. Deke Sharon, Austin Willacy, Roo Ahuja, Troy Horne, and Jake Moulton run the gamut from tender love ballads to mile-a-minute funk, complete with mind-blowing vocal percussion and riffs torn straight out of a whammy-bar guitar.
