About The Event

If you’ve seen more than a handful of shows in Texas, there’s a pretty good chance

you’ve already seen most, if not all, of the musicians who make up the South Austin

Moonlighters. These guys have earned their place among the elite of Austin’s

burgeoning music scene and have played key roles in bands like Fastball, Monte

Montgomery, Jimmy LaFave, to name just a few on a long, long list. Harkening back to

a time before pitch-corrected vocals and corporate boardroom-written hits, The South

Austin Moonlighters deliver their own unique brand of Americana music with organic

show-stopping vocal harmonies, incredible musicianship, and well-crafted heart-felt

songs.

This “True Americana” band hale from the “live music capital of the world”, Austin Texas,

the place that has consistently produced countless top-level musical artists year after

year; from pop stars to folk icons. It’s in this place that The South Austin Moonlighters

were born and continue to thrive. It all started with a simple question: “Wouldn’t it be

great to get together more often and play music we love?” In 2011, a few friends did just

that and a weekday residency at a local Austin live music venue (The Saxon Pub) was

booked! Originally “moonlighting” from their regular steady gigs, eventually The South

Austin Moonlighters BECAME the steady gig---with eight years, four albums, hundreds

of shows, and hundreds-of-thousands of miles traveled together.

The joy of making music is a tangible and contagious part of The South Austin

Moonlighters’ live shows. They are often compared to The Eagles, Little Feat, or Crosby,

Stills, Nash, and Young---but The South Austin Moonlighters are firmly positioned in

today’s culture; writing and performing songs primarily from their own catalogue

including songs from: 2012’s “Live at The Saxon Pub”, 2013’s “Burn and Shine”, 2016’s

“Ghost of a Small Town”, and the highly-anticipated Anders Osborne-produced album

“Travel Light” to be released in May 17th 2019.

The South Austin Moonlighters are:

Phil Hurley singer/songwriter/guitarist

Chris Beall singer/songwriter/guitarist

Lonnie Trevino Jr. singer/songwriter/bassist

Daniel James singer/songwriter/drummer
