First Friday feat. Zack Walther Band, Austin Mayse, and Landon Evans Band
August 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Zack Walther Band
The Zack Walther Band is an Americana roots rock power band based in New Braunfels, Texas. As versatile as the Texas landscape, the Zack Walther Band can rock the house with high energy, or slow it down with story songs from their life experiences.
With Zack Walther on lead guitar, harmonica, and strong vocals, combined with Matthew Briggs’ unique stand-up performance on drums and piano, and Shawn Hart on bass and vocals, they can entertain any crowd. Three part harmonies rarely go unnoticed by their listeners. Recently they’ve been collaborating with singer-songwriter Mike Atkins on the keys, who often joins in for live shows. Zack and Matthew have been friends since the third grade, and making music together since junior high. Zack and Matthew, along with other collaborators have recorded nearly a dozen studio and live records over the last 15 years and their music is currently being used on two cable television outdoor shows. They tour around Texas where their fans never seem to get enough.
Austin Mayse is a native Texan and songwriter based in Austin. He writes songs that are about the world he sees. Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re sad, but they are always true to his perception. In his relatively young career, he’s been fortunate to share stages with heroes, strangers, and close friends he’ll treasure forever. He enjoys baseball, life in the smaller big city, and listening to satellite radio (he insisted on including that part in this bio). Known for charming, intimate sets, Austin has a reputation for spinning webs between the songs, giving intriguing glimpses into the meanings behind them. The biggest rewards for Austin are the people he’s met along the way. Come out to a show sometime if you’re feeling rewarding.
Landon Evans Band
Landon Evans Band is a honky tonk group out of College Station, TX that mixes traditional country sounds with Texas dance hall flair. Influenced by the likes of classic cowboy music heroes such as Merle Haggard, Chris LeDoux, and George Strait with a generous helping of the Red Dirt style exhibited by their contemporaries Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Aaron Watson, and the Cody Johnson Band. Whether LEB is performing a full band show or just a solo acoustic act by Landon, this group has a talent for entertaining any audience.
