Troubadour Nights

Bob Livingston

Friday, July 7, 2017

Doors open at 7:00pm

Show Starts at 7:30pm

 

Texas Singer-songwriter BOB LIVINGSTON  has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life, even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful musicians on the planet. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, performing and recording with such musical visionaries like Murphey, Jerry Jeff Walker and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Livingston played an integral role in creating the music that first earned Austin the designation of 'Live Music Capital of the World'.  Achieving recognition in their own right, the Gonzos’ self-titled debut record on MCA was named by Rolling Stone Magazine, "...one of the best albums ever to come out of Austin."

 

Livingston has seen a lot of the world since growing up in musically fertile West Texas. Hailing originally from Lubbock, his interests were more 'Cosmic' than 'Cowboy' and have prompted him to delve into the music and mysteries of many cultures. Traveling since since 1987 as a Music Ambassador for the US State Department, Livingston has taken Texas music as far afield as India, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, demonstrating again and again the unique power that music has to build bridges between peoples of the world. As Livingston says, 'When all else fails, music prevails'. This philosophy earned him the honor of being appointed, 'Austin’s International Music Ambassador', in November of 2009 by the City Council right before a tour of Africa.

 

This world-traveled view was reflected in Livingston's 2004 CD, 'Mahatma Gandhi & Sitting Bull' released on Vireo Records and named in the Austin American-Statesman's "Top 10 List." In 2008, Vireo released a compilation called, 'Original Spirit', that includes 'Gandhi & Bull' in its entirety and several more surprise tracks from Livingston's Lost Gonzo Band days. But it's his latest CD, 'Gypsy Alibi', that is defining Livingston's new musical direction. Released in 2011 on New Wilderness Records, 'Gypsy Alibi' is co-produced by Lloyd Maines and won "Album of the Year" at the Texas Music Awards that year. It has more of a folk-rock/Americana spirit than his last outing and is still enjoying radio airplay around the country and abroad. Listen to "Ruby's Shoes, "Country Western Swing," and "Androids Lament." 

Tickets are $20
