June at Hill Country Live kicks off with a rollicking two-night 5-year anniversary party featuring returning favorites Heybale!, the first act to ever play the HCL stage and the performer for every Hill Country anniversary since. Since 2007, Hill Country Live has established itself as not only the premier destination for authentic Texas barbecue, but as NYC's home of Americana music. The month will also bring roots rocking scoundrels Hellbound Glory, the record release show of blues rocker Paul Thorn, ten-piece Austin soul band T Bird and the Breaks, and a very special charity event with The Sopranos' Big Pussy & The Bada Bings.
Heybale! - 6/1 & 6/2 - This five-piece Texas outfit features musicians who have played with Willie Nelson, Wanda Jackson, Merle Haggard, Brian Setzer and Johnny Cash including vocalist Dallas Wayne and guitarist Redd Volkaert. http://www.heybale.com/
Big Pussy & The Bada Bings - 6/6 - Vincent Pastore, better known as The Soprano's Big Pussy, will host a special open-to-the-public charity event featuring his all-star band Big Pussy & The Bada Bings and special guests, with live and silent auction proceeds benefiting Reach the World.
T Bird and the Breaks - 6/15 - The ten-piece Austin-based soul/funk band, darlings of the Austin press and one of NPR's "favorite sessions," are currently bringing new EP 'Dancehall Freakin' across the country. http://tbirdandthebreaks.com/
Paul Thorn - 6/16 - This critically acclaimed blues/rock singer/songwriter uses new album 'What the Hell is Goin On?' to put his gritty stamp on Americana classics. He has appeared on late night TV (both Kimmel and Conan) as well as NPR's World Café and All Thing Considered. http://www.paulthorn.com/
