Music, Drinks, Food, and Dancing!


Texas hill country is special for a lot of reasons, with one being the live music every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in restaurants, bars, and dance halls!
We got quite a treat at the Mercer Street Dance Hall in the community of Dripping Springs.  Jimmie Vaughn, older brother to Stevie Ray Vaughn, and famous for his own contributions in the music industry was performing!  Rumor has it that the owner of the dance hall and Jimmie are friends.  Jimmie lives in the Austin area.

Here is a sampling of a Jimmie Vaughn performance!
 
Here are Roy and I rocking out at the concert like the middle aged folks we are!
This is the Albert, Texas dance hall!  We were on a day tour, so no activity at the time.  It looks like a fun weekend place to be! 
This is a bar next to the Albert dance hall.  Don't you just love the wide spreading branches of the Live Oak!  A warm Summer evening here with friends, drinks, and music floating through the air would be wonderful.  We'll be back!
Miller Creek RV Resort brings some great entertainment to the park! 
They did a Louisiana crawfish and shrimp boil dinner with a local Cajun band call Zydeco Blanco!

Here is a sample of the group Zydeco Blanco.  Check out the guy playing a washboard on his chest with a couple of beer openers!  It's always a treat to catch this group performing! 
Miller Creek RV Resort also brought in the Tex-Mex performer Mike Blakely.  He is one of my favorites!  Check out some samples of his music on his website
