    Mike Stinson Band and Matthew Reveles

    Mike Stinson of The Mike Stinson Band was raised in Virginia, schooled in DC and moved to Los Angeles where eighteen years made him a veteran of what he calls "the trenches of beer joint warfare." Now he is based in Houston and is barnstorming the roadhouses of Texas week in and week out. His most recent album is 2013's Hell And Half Of Georgia. Matthew Reveles' songs invoke images of melancholy Americana - dusty back country roads, hippies hopping trains, and forlorn folks sippin’ whiskey on rickety plankwood porches. 21+ show
