Jesse Stratton
Jesse Stratton
Born and raised in the Texas Hill Country, Jesse Stratton plays a perfect mixture of Americana and Texas country music that is chock-full of truth and raw emotion. From his relevant originals to his energetic cover songs, this multi-talented artist plays his guitar, saxophone, and harmonica at every performance.

Alongside Jesse Stratton are a few of Texas' finest musicians, who are collectively known as the Jesse Stratton Band. Playing percussion in the band is Jesse's good friend, Kenny Martinez. On the bass is the easy-going and thoroughly talented Danny Pitt. Lead guitarist is Austin's own Tony Garossino - guitar instructor by day, rock star by night.

Their new CD 'Where it all began' is a heartfelt compilation of Jesse's original tunes paired with the ultra gripping instrumental stylings of Garossino, Pitt, and Martinez. This album breathes truth into the joys and struggles of everyday life. A musical and lyrical treat for fans and music lovers alike.

Jesse has been playing music since the age of 10. He started with the saxophone, which eventually landed him a scholarship to college for Music composition and Music business. He continues to play and learn an array of different instruments, but has always stuck to writing and performing songs with meaning and inspiration.

The Jesse Stratton Band formed in 2014, originally as a duo - Stratton and Martinez. They eventually added Garossino and Pitt for a fuller and more complete sound. Together, the band creates all the heart and soul live music longs for.

Garrett Simon Band
Based out of San Marcos, TX a group of likeminded guys with a passion for Texas music came together to chase their dream of sharing their stories through songs. Thus, the Garrett Simon Band was formed. When you dig into the lyrics of their song, “Ramblin’ Heart” you get a taste of what it’s like to be willing to do whatever it takes to pursue your dreams as a musician. The project set to be released in the next few months, titled “Broke Down” follows up “Ramblin’ Heart” and describes the harsh realities that this lifestyle entails. They hit the nail on the head when they talk about playing every bar down El Camino Real, yet nobody knows their name. They’re on a mission to change that, starting with the upcoming release of their new single recorded with Omar Vallejo of 512 Studios. Be on the lookout for shows near you to catch what is sure to be a rowdy time.
