We are a Houston, Texas band playing our songs about love, loss, good times and bad. Between the four of us, we have played some of the most and least known clubs across the US and Europe. Now after broken bands, relationships, day jobs and records we have something to write about. We recorded our demonstration record in Summer 2014. Since then we have been out playing our music for thirsty people everywhere.

Jonanthan Scales Fourchestra Tickets
Oct 5 @ 9:30 pm
Jonanthan Scales Fourchestra @ Shoeshine Charley's Big Top Lounge | Houston | Texas | United States

Jonathan Scales is one of the most innovative steel pannists on the planet, and is redefining and challenging traditional expectations of his signature instrument. In his hands, the sonic palette of an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical resorts is radically expanded to mimic the role of horns, piano, vibraphone or marimba due to his stunning, virtuosic technique. Scales’ mesmerizing compositions have captivated listeners and elevated him to the status of a true composer, forging new territory in the medium of instrumental music.

The Robert Kuhns Tickets
Oct 20 @ 10:00 pm
The Robert Kuhns @ Shoeshine Charley's Big Top Lounge | Houston | Texas | United States

The Robert Kuhns are a ragtag group of musicians gathered around modern folk songs written by Robert over the last few years.

Robert Kuhn moved to Houston in 2010 after bouncing around the world for more than a decade. Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Australia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Nicaragua all played home for him as different doors, jobs, occupations and art forms opened and led him on and on to the next stop. Broken hearts, broken backs, failed marriages, violence, riches, drugs, labor, love, poverty, music, poetry, dirt and salt; so it goes and continues.

Back in Houston, Robert joined bands with like minded musicians (including Little Joe Washington) and recorded the album “Everybody Knows”. It was recognized by the press as one of the top releases of 2014 and was Little Joe’s last studio work.

Robert now lives in Galveston, Houston and on the road through the Americas where he is still rolling and sharing the unique independent folk, blues and multicultural psyche-rock and roll Americana music that he writes and finds. At the least it is honest.
