If One Fiddle Is Good

Then Three Fiddles Are Great! Bobby Flores and the Yellow Rose Band came to the Broken Spoke Saturday night and Let’s Dance was there and Bobby and the band came to play! When the band is on stage and the front man strides up to his mark and bursts into nonstop music for three or four songs you know the musicians are not only talented but disciplined and well rehearsed.…

Was That Buck Owens In The House?

No, that was Brian Hofeldt of The Derailers Let’s Dance walked through the door at the Mercer Street Dance Hall in Dripping Springs and there was the Derailers. Kind of sounded like Buck but of course the Derailers are huge Buck Owens fans as am I.  The band plays regularly at The Broken Spoke as well as touring the country. These guys make the dance floor thump and they have…

Felix Pompa at Clevelands

One of My Three Favorite Watering Holes in Buda   Wait, there are only three watering holes in Buda. Anyway, I went into one of them a couple of nights ago to have my favorite beer, a Nickerbocker (visit us at Clevelands in Buda and get the full story) and stepped outside in the rear courtyard and there was this guy playing a guitar in the dark. I rushed back…

Amanda Again

And Why Not? The first time I caught Amanda Cevallos’ act I was actually heading into the dance hall part of the Broken Spoke. I quickly set up my camera to get a view videos for our YouTube channel. Her voice was amazing; everything you expect from a female country vocalist but more. The resonance and strength bore right into my mind. It was only later as I sat back…

Read My Hips

Swayin’ Goodbye Let’s Dance stopped short in the front room of The Broken Spoke as Amanda Cevallos caught our attention and soon you will see why. With a sultry voice and evocative lyrics, Amanda stops you cold and your attention is riveted on  her flashing eyes and winning smile. The beat is old school two step before Country became progressive. But her style is not western Swing around the oval…

Happy Birthday Mr. James White

75 Years Young and Operating The Broken Spoke for 50 Years Talking About A One Trick Pony Well, that is not quite right. To be fair, Mr. White has or had three tricks. First he served in the Army, then he became a construction guy taking less than two months to build the big red barn which James named The Broken Spoke and finally becoming co-owner and co-operator with his…

Ameripolitan

What is Ameripolitan? “Country Music is so convoluted with pop, it’s not country anymore. And because they’ve hijacked the term beyond repair, we aren’t Country either – We ARE AMERIPOLITAN. Let’s change things, folks.” – Dale Watson’s Ameripolitan webpage. Saturday March 1,  Let’s Dance was at The Broken Spoke to scuff the floors with Dale Watson and the LoneStars. It was a great show as always and Dale was flush…

Hard Charging Jesse

Earlier this month Let’s Dance got another look at Jesse Dayton holding down his usual Thursday night spot at The Broken Spoke. When I hear Jesse sing and watch him play his guitar I am continually amazed at his musical ability and prowess. He is truly a hard charging Texas legend that fears nothing on stage. His guitar work was noted at an early age throughout the Austin/Nashville/L.A. recording circles…
