Concerts at the Sanctuary
08/24/19 – The Aristocrats
The Guitar Sanctuary are proud to present the The Aristocrats Live at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center on Saturday August 24th at 8pm (doors open at 7pm) with special guests the Travis Larson Band. The Aristocrats are touring to promote their most ambitious and exploratory studio album yet, entitled You Know What…? VIP Tables with seating for 4 directly in front of the stage are $300 per table. Reserved Seats downstairs (first come, first served) are $50 each. General Admission (Standing Room Only) Tickets on the main floor and upstairs balcony are $35 each.
The Aristocrats (Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann) have released critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, and established themselves as one of the most musically original, refreshingly irreverent, and astoundingly entertaining instrumental rock-fusion acts on the planet. Call them a virtuoso supergroup if you must, but their musical high-wire act – employing random amounts of rock, jazz, pop, metal, and even traditional country – is informed by the spirit of a true band, one whose improvisational soul allows for anything to happen onstage at any moment…including the occasional wink and nod at the audience.
08/31/19 – Seth James
Texas Homegrown Music is proud to present a special CD Release Party for Seth James for his new release “Good Life” with special guests The Oliver White Group on Saturday August 31st at 8pm (doors open at 7) at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center. VIP Tables with seating for 4 directly in front of the stage are $125 per table (SEE Seating Chart). Downstairs Seats (First come, First Serve) are $20. General Admission (Standing Room Only on the upstairs balcony) Tickets are just $10. We’ll have food and bar service available from our friends at Rick’s Chophouse.
Authenticity and originality don’t always make for the most compatible bedfellows. Indeed, paying reverence to one’s roots sometimes moots the possibility of finding contemporary credence. Happily though, in the case of the Texas born and bred singer/songwriter Seth James, all those elements find equal footing. That’s especially evident with the release of Good Life, James’ new album, a rugged and unabashedly assertive blend of blues, country, roots, rock, and Americana.
09/14/19 – Mike Zito
The Guitar Sanctuary is proud to present an evening with Mike Zito with special guests the Maylee Thomas Band on Saturday September 14th at 8pm (doors open at 7) at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center. VIP Tables with seating for 4 directly in front of the stage are $125 per table (SEE Seating Chart). Downstairs Seats (First come, First Serve) are $25. General Admission (Standing Room Only on the upstairs balcony) Tickets are just $10. We’ll have food and bar service available from our friends at Rick’s Chophouse.
There may not be a more honest bluesman than Mike Zito, whose 15th album ‘First Class Life’ was releasted May 11 on Ruf Records. The rocking yet poignant title track explores his journey from addiction to sobriety and then musical recognition; he is a three-time Blues Music Award Winner, taking home the 2018 Rock Blues Artist of the Year. “Second chance at a first class
life,” he sings, recalling the hard times. The Texas-based musician smiles and continues, “I grew up poor in St. Louis, and now I’m travelling the world to sing my songs.” Zito’s star has been on the rise of late both solo and as a member of the Royal Southern Brotherhood, with bandmates Cyril Neville, Devon Allman, Charlie Wooton and Yonrico Scott.
09/27/19 – Atlantis Aquarius
Texas Homegrown Music and The Guitar Sanctuary are proud to present Atlantis Aquarius live at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center on Friday September 27th at 8pm (Doors Open at 7) with special guests the Maylee Thomas Band.

The 5-piece band reminds you of why blues, country, and classic blends really work. The albums are a collection of songs penned in between touring for the group while opening for acts like Jonathon Tyler, The Texas Gentlemen, and Paul Cauthen. Atlantis is considered one of DFW’s best live acts, and receives support and steady rotation on 91.7 KXT. Their debut single “Nibirian Sun” was added to the International playlist on Spotify which generated over 350K streams. As a result, the band consistently has between 20,000-50,000 monthly listeners on the streaming platform. Thanks to articles and reviews from the Dallas Observer, Indie Pulse Review, and 50thirdand3rd, Atlantis continues to make its mark locally and nationally.
10/11/19 – Texas Flood & The Maylee Thomas Band

Texas Flood has become the premier Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute act in the nation. With guitarist Tommy Katona leading the way, they bring the raw high energy of music and stage presence that Stevie Ray himself had. They have had the privilege of traveling all over the country with their tribute act. It is not only a show, but a recreated experience of one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time. This is their loving tribute to the life and music of Stevie Ray Vaughan.
From her early days as a gospel singer, to her legendary status as a Texas diva, Maylee transcends genre, mixing gospel-based blues with a soul driven rock, touches of pop, with the very faintest caresses of country from time to time… and audiences respond. Maylee is the soul of Texas and a must see act.
