11/23/19 – South Austin Moonlighters with special guest The Reverent Few
The Guitar Sanctuary is proud to present The South Austin Moonlighters with special guests the The Reverent Few at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center on Saturday November 23rd at 8pm (doors open at 7pm). VIP Tables with seating for 4 directly in front of the stage are $125 per table (SEE SEATING CHART). Downstairs Seats are $20. General Admission Tickets on the Balcony (Standing Room Only) are $10.

When Phil Bass, Chris Beall, Phil Hurley, and Lonnie Trevino Jr, four established Austin TX musicians, decide to join forces and play together just because it’s fun, you’re going to get something special. Such is the case for The South Austin Moonlighters, a band that blends blues, folk, soul, rock, and country, who can flip the switch from slow melodic country to gravelly rocking blues without a hitch. Think Little Feat meets Los Lobos with a splash of The Flying Burrito Bros, and you start to peel away the many musical layers of sound that makes up the S.A.M. Using a four part harmony at times accompanied with some brilliant guitar playing, S.A.M. plays with a full-bodied sound, and puts off an aura of down to earth Southern Blues and Country Rock, that can make even coldest days seem warm.
11/30/19 – The Stratoblasters with The Maylee Thomas Band

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.

Through the years a small fellowship of Stratoblaster members have evolved fulfilling the needs of the band, as other members must take their temporary leave. Very soon Bugs became more internationally recognized and the travel requirements of Bobby Chitwood and Mike Gage would not allow them to participate. Again, history came to the rescue. Admired drummer and old friend Mike Arnold had actually been the manager of Redux in Dallas (hiring the band for their first gig) and naturally moved into the position of percussionist for the band. Randy Cates, an accomplished bass player and old friend, came on-board to aptly complete the Stratoblaster rhythm section. Mike (Junior) Clark, an original member of the Bugs Henderson band, replaced Jerry Don Branch in 1990. Joe Lee, Shawn Ferris and James Anderson all played with the band and made their very special contributions. Many of the members of this finite fellowship eventually left the band at certain points through the years, only to return – as the band’s needs and their own needs again fell into sync. The natural artistic evolution continued.
The Sanctuary was specifically designed with concerts in mind. Its features include; a state of the art sound system and lighting equipment and a built in stage. Full service sound and lighting technicians along with LCD projection are available to make your next music event truly spectacular.
