2013 Hot Rod Revolution Coming to Gruene, Texas!

Posted on: November 14th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Two classic rods from a previous show.

The eighth annual Hot Rod Revolution hot rod show is coming to Gruene on Nov. 23. This event will be unlike any other ever held in Gruene.

Many of our boys came home from World War II with a lingering itch for speed and danger. They had become exposed to each as they fought for our freedom overseas and actively looked for an outlet when they got home. Some turned to hot rods.

The Hot Rod Revolution is a traditional pre-1948 hot rod show that pays homage to those men and the machines they created.

More Background

The show started in early 2006 after the revolutionaries (Keith, Mary, Ryan and Marcie) decided that the world needed a different kind of car show. Armed with a passion for traditional hot rods and a dedication to spreading the gospel, they launched the Hot Rod Revolution.

The first five years of the show were hosted in Penngrove, Calif., at an old baseball diamond. The show quickly garnered a reputation as being the best small car show on the planet – 100 or so pre-1948 hot rods.

They moved the show to Austin starting in 2010. The Seaholm Power Plant was chosen as a backdrop and what ended up going down on that November day in 2010 has become legendary.

In 2011 and 2012, the show was held at an active military base in conjunction with the U.S. Army.

Gruene was picked for this year’s show. This is going to be epic!

Come and see the gathering on Nov. 23 in Gruene. A spectator fee of $10 gets you into the show as well as access to some great vendors and some incredible live music.

Gates open at 10 a.m.  The show lasts until 5 p.m.

Brian Pounds Coming to the Phoenix Saloon Nov. 20

Posted on: November 8th, 2013 by admin No Comments

One of the most highly anticipated performances at the Phoenix Saloon in New Braunfels will be on Nov. 20 when Brian Pounds make his Phoenix Saloon debut.

This hugely promising local singer-songwriter mines a deep seam of old and new country songcraft. Blessed with an effortlessly easy and plangently emotive sound, full of grit and guts and heart and soul, Pounds was recently featured on “The Voice.”

ReverbNation.com has this to say about Brian:

“Brian Pounds’ voice is the perfect aphrodisiac. It is effortlessly smooth, endearingly honest, and layered with a bite of soul that leaves you breathless. His ability to vividly shape words, and the intensity of his voice, quickly compel us to delve deeper into this elusively impassioned artist. In doing so, we encounter the brave and gutsy beginnings that brought him here.

Aspects of jazz, soul, and blues can be heard throughout his music, and artists such as Ryan Adams, Amos Lee and James Taylor are his influences.”

The guy’s going places.
