    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Al Staehely Al Staehely has been writing and playing music for a long time Born and raised in one of the world’s most influential music towns, Staehely often found great inspiration in the nooks and crannies of Austin’s musical landscape His foray into instrumentation and songwriting began at an early age thanks in part to his mother’s love of good music An injury in his early teens resulting from the intense heat of a typical Texas summer kept Staehely from further pursuing athletic endeavors During the year that he was injured, Staehely began to channel his energy into making music Armed with a guitar, on loan from a cousin who most likely saw Staehely’s true potential, he learned the chords for Ricky Nelson’s “Poor Little Fool” and from that moment forward his passion for making music grew In the early ‘70s, Staehely earned his JD from the University of Texas at Austin Rather than jump straight into practicing law, Staehely opted instead to tuck away his law degree and hop on the first plane to Los Angeles where he joined the well-established ‘60s rock band Spirit Staehely took on the role of the band’s frontman, bassist, and principle songwriter The Staehely-fronted incarnation of Spirit toured the world promoting their highly-acclaimed album Feedback Once the band parted ways, Staehely and his also-musical brother wrote and released an album on Epic Records in 1973 From there Staehely continued to write songs and perform with a number of notable artists including John Cipollina and Nick Gravenites Over the past few of decades, Staehely has collaborated with some of music’s greatest musicians He has lent his signature sound to many an album and has had several of his own songs recorded by Keith Moon, Bobbie Gentry, Staehely has toured Europe, written songs, performed his work in front of thousands of people and still finds time to cultivate his solo career

    Travis Tritt returns to Houston on January 17 One of the leading new country singers of the early '90s, Travis Tritt held his own against the likes of Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson The only one to not wear a cowboy hat and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock, Tritt developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack Now you can experience a rare intimate performance with the CMA and Grammy Award-winning country star at Dunham Theater Tritt's had a string of platinum albums and Top 10 singles, including three No 1 hits ("T-R-O-U-B-L-E," "It's a Great Day to Be Alive" and "Best of Intentions") His distinctive sound continues to thrill, and this up-close-and-personal performance promises to be a truly memorable experience No sky is bluer, no air is crisper, no leaf greener than after a storm, and Travis Tritt is adding a musical addendum to that list with the release of The Calm After Part metaphor and surprisingly literal, the title is reflective of a fresh and focused start for one of the most successful and acclaimed musical creators of his era The tumult his music has come through to get this point, however, is very real

    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Hamilton Loomis “If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you’ll find Hamilton Loomis right in the center of it”, says Guitar Player Magazine An apt description, as young Loomis is one of the young artists at the forefront of bringing blues based American music into the 21st century and redefining it for a contemporary audience Spanning youth and tradition, Loomis bridges the gap between generations of music-lovers both in the US and around the world Whereas similar aged acts like Black Keys, Robert Randolph and White Stripes play American rock music with heavy blues influences, Loomis plays the inverse His is an undeniably blues based artist escalating into what All Music Guide calls “…a mixed bag of modern blues, modern funk, and slick soul” "Innovate, don't imitate" Hamilton Loomis took his mentor, Bo Diddley's advice It speaks volumes when the likes of Diddley, Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, and Albert Collins take you under their wings The twenty-something Texas sensation isn't just another cat-in-a-hat with a Strat He has crafted his blues roots into a funk-a-fied recipe all his own

    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Sam Baker Sam Baker might be the most captivating songwriter in America You’ll probably never catch yourself singing one of his songs in the shower, because his melodies generally tend to be as bare-bones servicable as the raspy scratch of his singing; but by God, you listen to what he has to say, hanging on for every line like a baby bird at feeding time Sometimes his words come out haltingly, one by one; others tumble out of his mouth in spurts of nursery rhyme cadence (“copper penny for your thoughts/copper jacket full of lead/they wanted little Jimmy Cagney dead …”) By the time he sing-speaks them all, he’s burned a black-and-white image or sometimes even a whole movie in your mind that lingers long after each song ends Some, like “Juarez” and “Odessa” from 2007’s Pretty World, will haunt you for life Baker’s fourth album, Say Grace, adds several more masterpieces to that gallery, begining with the title track’s poignant portrait of a woman weighing the ghosts of her past against the lonely onset of advancing age In “Migrants,” he tells of 14 men who cross the border only to succumb to the elements of the brutal Sonora desert “Ay mijitos/they looked like dried leaves/scattered in the sun,” Baker sings with a sadness underscored by Joel Guzman’s keening accordion “They got 12 lines in a midwestern paper/on the pages with the ads for shoes” But there’s true grace here, too, from the sweetly touching but unmawkish “Isn’t Love Great” to the surprise sense of humor leavening the blue-collar angst of “Ditch”: “My wife God bless her and for what it’s worth/thinks she and Taylor Swift/were twins at birth/separated at birth/Earth to wife/wife to earth!” — RICHARD SKANSE

    McGonigel's Mucky Duck presents Robyn Ludwick Robyn’s critically acclaimed new album features a dizzying cast, including Producer/Multi-instrumentalist Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams, Blaze Foley), Ian “Mac” MacLagan (Small Faces, Faces, Rolling Stones), John Ludwick, Eddie Cantu, Gene Elders (George Strait, Lyle Lovett), Trish Murphy, and Slaid Cleaves Many a green song writer has squeezed callow lyric from near-empty diaries, hoping that one day life might catch up with their words Robyn Ludwick entered the world of song primed by years of life lived When pen did come to paper, it teemed with ink—and was driven by a hand softened by love and strengthened by life Her earliest nights found her sprawled across the folding chairs of many a Hill Country dancehall, eyelids closing on her grandparents, as they twirled each other over creaky wooden floors Her older brothers would grow to be Two of Texas’ favorite sons, Bruce and Charlie Robison Some part Mary Gauthier, some part Sugarland, some part country Dylan, all parts love and lust and desire, Ludwick brings it strong and true So in all seriousness, if you are the kind of person that likes to catch a rising star, catch Ludwick's now Her music is powerful and outside the mold of Nashville and outside the Country-Rock community of Tift Merritt, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow
