Bob Cheevers With R&b roots in his hometown of Memphis to major label pop records in L.A to journeyman songwriter in Nashville to his current, back-up-in- the- holler home in Austin, Bob Cheevers has covered lots artistic ground in his career. Whether playing shows in-and-around Austin or across the globe, Cheevers brings it all to the stage every night. An Emmy winning songwriter who was a show-opener on Johnny Cash’s final tour, Bob’s favorite acknowledgment is his Texas Music Award for “Singer/ songwriter Of The Year” he received three years after moving to Austin. His artistic lifestyle and story songs live up to and soar above the accolades and critical acclaim he's received. Each time he appears on a stage...history is made. bobcheevers.com Louie Ortega  Although best known nationally and internationally for his unobtrusive yet fortifying guitar licks and the warm, smooth vocals behind such groups as the Sir Douglas Quintet and the Texas Tornados (Freddie Fender, Flaco Jimenez, Augie Meyers and Doug Sahm), Louie Ortega can and does stand on his own as a singer/songwriter/guitarist. With a career spanning more than three decades, Ortega got his start in 1969 as the front man for Columbia and Atlantic recording artists Louie and the Lovers. When the group disbanded, Louie joined forces with his friend Doug Sahm for a series of recording projects and European tours. His songs, such as "Little Georgie Baker" and "County Line," were mainstays of the group’s releases on Sweden’s Sonnet Records. During this period, Ortega also quietly pursued a career as a solo performer and songwriter in his hometown of San Luis Obispo, California. From 1989 to 1996, Ortega toured extensively throughout the U.S and abroad with the Texas Tornados. His performance and translation of  "Soy de San Luis" on the group’s first album helped secure the band a Grammy in 1990. Their CD Four Aces, released in 1996, features two of his compositions, "Amor de mi Vida" and "Mi Morenita." louieortega.com
