The Austin Steel Guitar Co-op is always fun and good.
This month however was exceptional.
My new band, The Madcow Boys, Bass player / Vocals Ken Siches, Drummer Mike Stowers, were joined by regular Leon Grizzard on guitar / vocals, All outstanding players.
My good friend / Steel Teacher / Dave Goodman played a bunch of great stuff.
Dave Biller tore it up sitting next to Jim Loesseberg who looked like he was having some fun cutting loose as they went back and forth with licks.
Those two are wild and exciting players to watch.
Justin Trevino showed up and did a couple of sets with everybody and we ended up playing until almost 7:00!!
Wow what a performer and singer Justin is !! in the style of Bush, Price, McCall and many others including himself.
It has to be the best and most fun yet at the ASGC.
The only thing that topped that would be my Beans and Cornbread… HA!
I would like to thank everyone with an extra big Thank You to all that support the ASGC.
My Friend J.D. Faron who puts us in the 290 West Club on his day off…. Thanks Faron

Hey everybody,
It is almost time for the Austin Steel Guitar Co-op Jam.
The 2nd Sunday falls on the 14th and we will be meeting at the fantastic 290 West Club in Austin Texas at 2:00 P.M.
The 290 West has moved the stage up front, improving the setting and sound.
We will be having Food, Fun and Steel Guitar Music. Bring products and Items for sale, trade or thinking about it just come and check it out.
The ASGC is going to try a new format of using the first set to go around and give everyone a chance to play a few songs with the band by themselves.
What this means is, you can come with some songs in mind and feel feel to send or bring charts / sheet music for the Bass player Ken Siches, Drummer Mike Stowers, Leon Grizzard on guitar and several guests including myself,… everyone is welcome.
2nd Set will be the usual round robin jam.
Please contact me if you need any information or have input and or ideas for the ASGC.
The Austin Steel Guitar Co-op Jam is open to the public and free of charge.
