Good morning y’all!
Having a little oatmeal and coffee in New Orleans where it is a balmy 19 degrees. Wait…what???
I had a spectacular birthday this year at Pardi Gras, thanks for all the birthday wishes.
Steamboat Music Fest was also really great this year. Thanks to John and Robin Dickson for having us as part of that wonderful event. This year I lead a bunch of my Tejas Vaqueros buddies, including Roger Creager, Cody Johnson and Kevin Fowler, singing “Friends For Life” at the Gary P. Nunn tribute there. Gary is a good buddy of mine and a Texas legend. He is the artist who sang “London Homesick Blues (I Wanna Go Home with the Armadillo)” that was the theme song for Austin City Limits.
We also did a George Strait sing-a-long, I performed at the Dung Beetle Saloon Saturday night, and Coley and I had another magical afternoon performance at our favorite MusicFest event at the Saddles Bar in the Sheraton.
Just a couple weeks away from our big event, Lone Star Luau 2, and I wanted to invite you to come. It’s in Marble Falls, TX Feb 2-4, 2018. Just an hour outside of Austin.
Just look at this lineup! Also, our friend Donny Brewer will be bringing his popular Lip Sync Battle to the Luau, Friday night at the after party at Brass Hall!
A lot of folks have asked if we will have single day passes available this year. Well, here they are:
The word on the street is that the parking lot across from Brass Hall will be under construction this year, so looks like our RV friends will have to find a campsite elsewhere. There is a park at the Lakeside Pavilion, but we are only permitted for 10 overnight campers which will all be artists or sponsors. Click the RV for a Google Map of RV Parks nearby.
Another little tidbit – The Soap Creek Saloon Cookers will be providing food this year at the Luau! Great BBQ with a Hawaiian flair.
We will have long sleeve tees available in white, and this new color, heathered coral, this year.
The deadline to have an ad in our program or to be a sponsor (which gets you premium seating) has been extended to end of business day this Thursday, Jan 18., so act now! Go to lonestarluau.com
and click on the sponsorship link. For ads in the program, shoot us an email at email@example.com
Wanted to let you all know that Coley will be doing a lot fewer shows with me this year so that she can focus on her Rodan + Fields Skin Care business. It is doing well for her, and she wants to continue to grow it.
Also if you are looking to be your own boss and have your own successful home based business, contact Coley at ColeyMcCabe@gmail.com
Keep an eye on our websites, thomshepherd.com and thomandcoley.com for show dates. And if you’d like to book a show this year or know of a place I should be performing near you, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Speaking of that, I will be performing at Summer Chill in Chicago August 3rd!
LAST CALL FOR AUSTRALIA! FEB 10-20, 2018
