Show Details
  • Ticket Price: $25.00
Note: Frank Carillo & the Bandoleros will open the show and then perform with Augie Meyers.

Augie Meyers, member of the legendary Sir Douglas Quintet &Texas Tornados, is a Tex-Mex star; his style and Vox Continental has become one of music's most distinctive keyboard sounds. Augie has a lock on the Top 10 All-Time Rock & Roll Keyboard Riffs, from his Vox organ on the Sir Douglas Quintet's “She's About a Mover,” “Mendocino” and “Nuevo Laredo” to his Grammy-winning work with the super-group the Texas Tornados (with Doug Sahm, Flaco Jimenez and Freddy Fender), known worldwide as the creators of South Texas sound.

Augie's career has crisscrossed cultural boundaries for decades. He looms large not only in the musical back pages of San Antonio, but of Austin, San Francisco, Scandinavia and points in between. His potent stew of rock, blues, country and conjunto is at once distinct and distinguished. Along the way, he's written songs like “Hey Baby Kep Pa So” that stand as anthems to the nowhere-but-Texas Lone Star attitude.

Augie can be heard as well as on landmark albums by Bob Dylan (“Time Out of Mind” and “Love and Theft”) and John Hammond (“Wicked Grin”). Echoes of the Augie's style and sound can be heard in the music of the Doors, the Kinks, the Animals as well as the Beatles, just to name a few - an impact that is still being felt in rock 'n' roll today.

Frank Carillo is the epitome of the “musician's musician.” Throughout his career, his craftsmanship as a gifted world-class guitar player, electrifying stage performances, memorable prolific songwriting and his warm and affable persona have allowed him to make an indelible mark on the international music scene. He formed the Bandoleros in 2004 and the group has recorded several CDs, including the acclaimed “Bad Out There” and “Someday.”

In 2008, Carillo was selected by the Long Island Music Hall of Fame as a recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award for adding to the rich musical history and culture that is uniquely Long Island's. The honors continued when Frank Carillo and the Bandoleros were selected as nominees for the 2008 Roots Rock Artist of the Year award by the Roots Music Association of America. In addition, the band was selected by the Hollywood Music Awards as the 2008 Blues Artist of the Year.

The band's latest release is called “The Rails To Kingdom Come.”
