Texas Tornados: 2013-03-09 New Braunfels, TX (FLAC_Bootradr Master AUD_2 CD)

Here's a show that I recorded last Saturday night for some friends.  This band has been around, both in this same lineup and with other now dead members many know such as Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender.  Doug's son, Shawn Sahm, Flaco Jimenez, Augie Myeres, and a few others are today's Texas Tornados.

NOTE: I created a torrent and posted it on Dime.  If your a Dime member, you'll know what to do.  If not, sign up for a free account and READ THE RULES.  Go to for their home page.  And remember to keep your sharing ratio at 0.25% or higher so as to not get banned.  It's a much faster download almost always!

This recording came out excellent (even with my bias :-)).  I was dead center, about three or four rows back.  It was a sold out show and standing room only.  Gruene Hall is like home to this band and they were doing this show in preparation for their 2013 tour.  Hence the name "Gruene Hall Warmups" (like Led Zeppelin's Copenhagen Warmups).

I'm learning this music more and more as I hang around and record my friend's band, Cowtrip, and I am exposed to it.  I'm a diehard Led Zeppelin and Journey kind of guy and I bet I was the only person in the historic Gruene Hall with a 4/5/70 Baltimore Led Zeppelin tee-shirt and a borrowed cowboy hat on :-)

We had a great time, on the trip to and from North Texas, and while down in the Austin/San Antonio area once again.  The crowd is very "Texas Tornados familiar" and the band put on an excellent performance playing to their home crowd.

I've seen a following of this band and others like it on Dime, so, I figured I'd go ahead and upload the show since it came out so well.

I hope "y'all" enjoy the show...
