Bayou Blues

Mrs. Glass was born in Iowa in 1985. He hitchhiked to New Orleans as a teenager and moved to Austin after Hurricane Katrina.

Ian Fry is a native Californian. He has studied Vedic Science at the Maharishi University of Management. He moved to Austin in '09.

Ivan Evangelista was born in Croatia. He spent 14 years playing and recording music in NYC. He moved to Austin on Christmas Day, 2010.

The three met on the front stage at The Hole In The Wall on April 8, 2011. They started playing music without ever uttering a single word to each other. They often wonder whether they should have continued that trend.

DC Bloom

DC Bloom

8:00 PM

Singer/Songwriter

Since landing in Austin in 2009, the Ohio native has released two full-length CDs (Simpler Times A-Wastin’ and New Man) and one five-song EP (Cinco de Star-Oh!). D.C. is currently recording a new album (The Rest is Commentary) set for an April 2014 launch.

Along the way, he’s worked with some of Central Texas’ best musicians, including Terri Hendrix, Warren Hood, Barbara Nesbitt (The Whiskey Sisters), and Leeann Atherton.

With a frisky wit and winsome demeanor, the typical D.C. set may find him offering an empathetic musical salute to the Texas Panhandle’s lowly and endangered Lesser Prairie Chicken and then lithely pivoting to share a heartbreaking story of perpetual wonder as a result of an unheard whisper from a past love.

Springsteen-esque Singer/Songwriter

Guitar & Piano Duo

About Redd Volkaert, excerpt from his bio:

I decided to go to Nashville via California, assuming everybody in Edmonton was sick of my noodling and the U.S. hadn't heard of me yet, (hopeful). My first stop was in Redding, CA, at the Saddle Horn Club with Johnny Roberts for a one-month engagement that ended suddenly with my leaving town in the middle of the night.

Landed a gig with Don Cox and the Cowtown Band featuring steel guitarist Bobby Black (WOW!) in San José where Don told me that he had had some ugly guitar players in his 20 years at that club, but I was the best of the truck driver lookin' ones.

Six months later I moved to Santa Cruz to work with Ginny Mitchell in her trio for the summer (two guitars and bass) doing country, bluegrass, and swing. That was a blast!

Tired of being a noodling beach bum, I headed south to L.A. where I played seven nights a week in Huntington Beach with Chad Watson, Mike Thomas, and Alan Rich (Charlie's boy), met hundreds of new pickers, got my ass kicked by thousands of guitar players, it was wonderful. There I listened as much as I played. The L.A. music scene at that time was a great and exciting learning time for me. I got to experience country, blues, rockabilly, swing, and jazz like I'd never heard or seen before. I was lucky enough to get to play on many demos and recordings of everything but jazz; I still get a headache when I try to figure that stuff out. I even considered giving up food for music - there was so much variety there.

After OD’ing on L.A., I decided Nashville was my next move, knowing they fully needed another noodler with a Telecaster. So I stopped in San Angelo, TX, to visit Lynn Massey, former drummer of Red Steagall's band, whom I'd met in Calgary 10 years earlier. He just happened to need a guitar player for a couple of months, so we kicked around Texas for the winter. His band later became Neil McCoy's band and still is today.
