LIVE in Concert -Join us for a night of Classic Texas Country Music from Houston's own MAX FLINN Max was born and raised in Houston, TX Other than a short year spent in East Texas pursuing his college football dreams that were cut short by injury, he has spent his entire life in the big city Max began teaching himself to play the guitar at the age of 10 after he became bored playing air guitar with household items  His love for Texas country music started in Junior High and was heavily influenced by Pat Green, Robert Earl Keen, Cory Morrow, Chris Knight and other local greats Nonetheless, from his late teens to early twenties music took a backseat to drugs and alcohol  Those years were characterized by run-ins with law enforcement, countless attempts to sober up, lost relationships, and hopelessness Max finally had enough in December of 2012 and turned his life around Max credits God, a loving family, supportive friends and playing music to his recovery Aside from music, one of his biggest passions is utilizing his experience to help others escape the dangerous cycle by which he was once plagued Having found new freedom, Max made the leap into pursuing his passion for music professionally He made his start by attending a weekly Western Swing jam session at Rudyards that he had found in the Houston Press   It was there he met local musicians such as Charlie Harrison, Brad Boyer, Jimmy Pizzitola, Willy T Golden, Shane Lauder, Hannah Underwood, Kevin Skrla and several other local artists who openly welcomed him in The latter four musicians would ultimately back Max in his first ever recorded demo in November of 2015 With CDs in hand, Max began distributing them to any live music venue he could think of in the Houston area Before he knew it, he was getting asked to play around town While still balancing his 8 to 5 job, Max is out performing 2 to 3 nights per week and working on his debut EP at Stormy Cooper Media with Lyndon Hughes (drummer in Roger Creager's band) producing While still partial to the Texas Country he grew up on, Max has found his greatest affinity for the classic country legends such as Merle Haggard, George Jones, Jonny Paycheck, and others I really identify with the raw vulnerability and grit of the classic country folks They were honest about their stories and didnt hold anything back, says Max You can find the Max Flinn Band covering a number of Classic Country Hits on any given night in addition to Maxs own tunes The debut album will feature 6 original songs about Maxs life his heartache, his stories, and his visions of hope  Hes excited for this journey wherever it may lead and vows to never stop making music until the end Max Flinn

    The Heights Theater presents Ray Wylie Hubbard - 70th Birthday Bash! With special guests Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams When it comes to down n dirty roots n roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard Except, it seems, for Hubbard himself After riding a decade-long career resurgence into the national spotlight with 2012s acclaimed The Grifters Hymnal and his first ever appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman (I didnt want to peak too soon, quips Hubbard, 68), the iconoclastic Texas songwriter is back to continue his hot streak with The Ruffians Misfortune his 16th album (and third on his own Bordello Records, via Thirty Tigers) From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the 60s to his wild ride through the 70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the 80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a songwriters songwriter in the 90s, Hubbard was already a bona fide legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century Thats when he finally felt confident enough in his guitar playing to dive headlong into his own inimitable take on the blues, a form hed admired but steered clear of for decades, thinking its mysteries were beyond his grasp as a basic chord strummer I used to go see Lightnin Hopkins and Mance Lipscomb and Freddie King, all those cats, but I never could play like them I guess because I never took the time or effort to try until I was in my 40s and learned how to finger pick, says Hubbard Once I learned how to finger pick, I started going, Oh, OK, this is how they did all that! Then I started learning open tuning, and then slide, and it was just this incredible freedom that gave all these songs a door to come through that wasnt there before It was like all of a sudden having this whole other language or a whole other set of tools to add to my arsenal In lieu of drugs and alcohol, that language became Hubbards new addiction and the title of his 2001 album Eternal and Lowdown somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy: 14 years further down the road, hes still chasing hellhounds deep into the underbelly of the blues, with a Lightnin Hopkins gleam in his eyes and a Rolling Stone swagger in his boot steps The Ruffians Misfortune is his latest missive home from this leg of his long journey Its message? Dont wait up The Ruffians Misfortune is the tightest and most focused record of Hubbards career; it will also be his first record to be pressed on vinyl in more than 30 years But its grooves cut just as deep in digital form, every track rumbling like muddy water over a bed of lethal rocks and gnarled roots The terrain aint exactly pretty, but every record Hubbards fished, fought, and dragged from those waters including such fan and critic favorites as 2002s aptly-titled Growl, 2006s Snake Farm, and 2010s A Enlightenment, B Endarkenment (Hint: There is no C) has only strengthened his resolve to follow his gypsy muse closer and closer to that dark rivers source Hubbard hints that he may someday find his way back to less rocky ground, admitting that he keeps a 12-string on hand thinking I might go back to more Gordon Lightfoot type stuff every once in a while the old folkie guy will rear his ugly head but The Ruffians Misfortune finds him still a long way from that I really liked The Grifters Hymnal, and I think The Ruffians Misfortune is still kind of a part of that, he offers, noting that he likes the way both titles would look just as fitting on a dusty old book jacket or perhaps at the start of a silent movie as they do on an album cover But the similarities dont end there This record is pretty much where I am as far as trying to make records that work on a couple of different levels, by laying down a groove with cool guitar tones and vicious nasty licks with lyrics that have a little depth and weight and even a little humor thrown in, too, as life is pretty much like that Hubbard describes the process of getting those lyrics down just right with every line and word weighted and measured with a poets discipline as both a joy and anguish But the actual recording this time around went down remarkably quickly, with most of the tracks nailed down live in two or three takes over the course of five days at the Zone studio in Dripping Springs, Texas, right up the road from the rustic Hill Country cabin Hubbard shares with his wife, manager, and record label president, Judy Hubbards ferociously gifted 21-year-old son, Lucas  whos been holding his own onstage with the old man since his late teens shared lead guitar duties on the album with the equally talented Gabe Rhodes, swapping leads the whole way through I really wanted to have that Ron Wood/Keith Richards two-guitar vibe, you know? explains Ray Wylie, who of course played a fair amount of guitar himself: namely, all of the slide and acoustic stuff The bedrock is provided by bassist/co-producer George Reiff and drummer Rick Richards, whose deep in the pocket, just-behind-the-beat timing has been Hubbards not-so-secret weapon for years on both record and stage Hubbard raves that Reiff and Richards make for such a potent groove machine that hes had to share them on more than one occasion with friend (and poacher) Joe Walsh: He called me up and went, I dont want to steal your band but Im going to steal your Snake Farm band, Hubbard recounts with a laugh Which of course is a high compliment to George and Rick Sonically, The Ruffians Misfortune picks up right where The Grifters Hymnal left off, with Hubbard and his wrecking crew confidently jumping from jagged, wicked-cool roots rock  to trashy, 60s-style garage stomp, Mississippi and Texas blues and even earnest country-gospel name-checking Sister Rosetta Tharpe  The songs themselves are rife with wayward souls worthy of both words in the albums title sinners, luckless gamblers, drunks, thieves, and at least one beautiful, fierce woman As narrator and guide, Hubbard doles out more empathy than judgment for the whole motley lot, but his words sting like grit in open wounds just the same Dallas rocker Jonathan Tyler does get credit for lending a hand (and a cool guitar lick, although he doesnt play it himself on the record) in the writing of Hey Mama, My Time Aint Long, while Marco Gutierrez and Sean Nino Cooper of El Pasos Dirty River Boys collaborated with Hubbard on the cautionary border anthem Down by the River and Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn fame pitched in on Bad on Fords After taking a shine to The Grifters Hymnal, Dunn invited Hubbard up to Nashville to write some songs together for a solo project he working on Hubbard in turn was impressed by the country superstars legit Red Dirt roots and rock n roll attitude, so he figured Dunn might get a kick out of an idea he had about an unrepentant Okie car thief with a fast and furious pick-up line: Im bad on Fords and Chevrolets, but Ill be good to you! He figured right though neither of them could have foreseen Red Rocker Sammy Hagar getting his hands on a demo of the song and cutting it first, on 2013s Sammy Hagar & Friends Theres a bit more to that particular story, which is but one of hundreds, if not thousands, of colorful anecdotes Hubbard could tell about his long and eventful career some going even further back than the one about how he came to write Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother, which became one of the defining anthems of the entire progressive country era after Jerry Jeff Walker recorded it on his classic 1973 album Viva Terlingua! Hes certainly got more than enough of them and years of insight to match to fill a book, which is something he finally got around to tackling after persistent prodding (and a bit of editing help) from friend and music writer Thom Jurek After spending the better part of the last two years sifting through his memories and hashing them out on the page, Hubbards autobiography is off to the printer and due out this spring or summer right alongside The Ruffians Misfortune Its exceedingly Hubbard-ly title? A Life Well, Lived His book may be finished, but Hubbards not done, well, living that life And as long as he keeps his gratitude higher than his expectations (to borrow a line from The Grifters Hymnals Mother Blues, pointedly delivered by Hubbard himself and not some wiseacre Aesops crow), his fortune going forward should be pretty good TWITTER: https://twittercom/raywylie TWITTER: https://twittercom/LarryandTeresa Ray Wylie Hubbard - 70th Birthday Bash!

Then I started learning open tuning, and then slide, and it was just this incredible freedom that gave all these songs a door to come through that wasnt there before It was like all of a sudden having this whole other language or a whole other set of tools to add to my arsenal In lieu of drugs and alcohol, that language became Hubbards new addiction and the title of his 2001 album Eternal and Lowdown somewhat of a self-fulfilling prophecy: 14 years further down the road, hes still chasing hellhounds deep into the underbelly of the blues, with a Lightnin Hopkins gleam in his eyes and a Rolling Stone swagger in his boot steps The Ruffians Misfortune is his latest missive home from this leg of his long journey Its message? Dont wait up The Ruffians Misfortune is the tightest and most focused record of Hubbards career; it will also be his first record to be pressed on vinyl in more than 30 years But its grooves cut just as deep in digital form, every track rumbling like muddy water over a bed of lethal rocks and gnarled roots The terrain aint exactly pretty, but every record Hubbards fished, fought, and dragged from those waters including such fan and critic favorites as 2002s aptly-titled Growl, 2006s Snake Farm, and 2010s A Enlightenment, B Endarkenment (Hint: There is no C) has only strengthened his resolve to follow his gypsy muse closer and closer to that dark rivers source Hubbard hints that he may someday find his way back to less rocky ground, admitting that he keeps a 12-string on hand thinking I might go back to more Gordon Lightfoot type stuff every once in a while the old folkie guy will rear his ugly head but The Ruffians Misfortune finds him still a long way from that I really liked The Grifters Hymnal, and I think The Ruffians Misfortune is still kind of a part of that, he offers, noting that he likes the way both titles would look just as fitting on a dusty old book jacket or perhaps at the start of a silent movie as they do on an album cover But the similarities dont end there This record is pretty much where I am as far as trying to make records that work on a couple of different levels, by laying down a groove with cool guitar tones and vicious nasty licks with lyrics that have a little depth and weight and even a little humor thrown in, too, as life is pretty much like that Hubbard describes the process of getting those lyrics down just right with every line and word weighted and measured with a poets discipline as both a joy and anguish But the actual recording this time around went down remarkably quickly, with most of the tracks nailed down live in two or three takes over the course of five days at the Zone studio in Dripping Springs, Texas, right up the road from the rustic Hill Country cabin Hubbard shares with his wife, manager, and record label president, Judy Hubbards ferociously gifted 21-year-old son, Lucas  whos been holding his own onstage with the old man since his late teens shared lead guitar duties on the album with the equally talented Gabe Rhodes, swapping leads the whole way through I really wanted to have that Ron Wood/Keith Richards two-guitar vibe, you know? explains Ray Wylie, who of course played a fair amount of guitar himself: namely, all of the slide and acoustic stuff The bedrock is provided by bassist/co-producer George Reiff and drummer Rick Richards, whose deep in the pocket, just-behind-the-beat timing has been Hubbards not-so-secret weapon for years on both record and stage Hubbard raves that Reiff and Richards make for such a potent groove machine that hes had to share them on more than one occasion with friend (and poacher) Joe Walsh: He called me up and went, I dont want to steal your band but Im going to steal your Snake Farm band, Hubbard recounts with a laugh Which of course is a high compliment to George and Rick Sonically, The Ruffians Misfortune picks up right where The Grifters Hymnal left off, with Hubbard and his wrecking crew confidently jumping from jagged, wicked-cool roots rock  to trashy, 60s-style garage stomp, Mississippi and Texas blues and even earnest country-gospel name-checking Sister Rosetta Tharpe  The songs themselves are rife with wayward souls worthy of both words in the albums title sinners, luckless gamblers, drunks, thieves, and at least one beautiful, fierce woman As narrator and guide, Hubbard doles out more empathy than judgment for the whole motley lot, but his words sting like grit in open wounds just the same Dallas rocker Jonathan Tyler does get credit for lending a hand (and a cool guitar lick, although he doesnt play it himself on the record) in the writing of Hey Mama, My Time Aint Long, while Marco Gutierrez and Sean Nino Cooper of El Pasos Dirty River Boys collaborated with Hubbard on the cautionary border anthem Down by the River and Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn fame pitched in on Bad on Fords After taking a shine to The Grifters Hymnal, Dunn invited Hubbard up to Nashville to write some songs together for a solo project he working on Hubbard in turn was impressed by the country superstars legit Red Dirt roots and rock n roll attitude, so he figured Dunn might get a kick out of an idea he had about an unrepentant Okie car thief with a fast and furious pick-up line: Im bad on Fords and Chevrolets, but Ill be good to you! He figured right though neither of them could have foreseen Red Rocker Sammy Hagar getting his hands on a demo of the song and cutting it first, on 2013s Sammy Hagar & Friends Theres a bit more to that particular story, which is but one of hundreds, if not thousands, of colorful anecdotes Hubbard could tell about his long and eventful career some going even further back than the one about how he came to write Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother, which became one of the defining anthems of the entire progressive country era after Jerry Jeff Walker recorded it on his classic 1973 album Viva Terlingua! Hes certainly got more than enough of them and years of insight to match to fill a book, which is something he finally got around to tackling after persistent prodding (and a bit of editing help) from friend and music writer Thom Jurek After spending the better part of the last two years sifting through his memories and hashing them out on the page, Hubbards autobiography is off to the printer and due out this spring or summer right alongside The Ruffians Misfortune Its exceedingly Hubbard-ly title? A Life Well, Lived His book may be finished, but Hubbards not done, well, living that life And as long as he keeps his gratitude higher than his expectations (to borrow a line from The Grifters Hymnals Mother Blues, pointedly delivered by Hubbard himself and not some wiseacre Aesops crow), his fortune going forward should be pretty good TWITTER: https://twittercom/raywylie TWITTER: https://twittercom/LarryandTeresa +
