First Summer Concert Series

At The Ruby Ranch Lodge


Let’s Dance partnered up with the Ruby Ranch Lodge nestled among the oaks just outside of Buda and hosted Thumbs Up (the five piece version of Off The Grid) for an outdoor dance. There are the ‘high energy’ party bands out there that have highly rehearsed song sets along with dance steps that will ‘rev’ up the guests but for laid back, casual and audience interactive party or corporate event bands, these guys can’t be beat. Playing a mix of country, 60’s pop, zydeco, polka, R&B and everything in between, Thumbs Up/Off The Grid can meet every musical taste.

 You may recall an earlier post featuring Off The Grid. They played for Let’s Dance as we provided entertainment for the  downtown Buda merchants for their regular First Thursday event. Here is the playlist. Don’t miss the guacamole song. Off The Grid has been with us almost from the very beginning and we highly recommend them for a small get together at your home, for a company picnics or for facility grand openings and other promotional events. When you add John Currie (lead singer, rhythm guitar) and Danny Hendricks (vocals and bass guitar) to Mike Compasso (lead singer and percussionist), John Mertz (vocals and lead guitar) and Joe Klause (vocals and accordion); you have Thumbs Up –a perfect dance band.

Oh I forgot. Joe, John and Mike also go by the names Otto, Wolfgang and Hans. They dress up in lederhosen, knee socks and suspenders.

Weird, I know.
