Live at the Texas Music Cafe
In 1997, three brothers sidelined their own aspirations of stardom and turned their focus to producing a television program that might afford other musicians a chance in the spotlight. Going all-in, they built a platform to showcase local and regional undiscovered talent, and took on faith that what they envisioned, if meant to be, would find a way.
What began as a passion project quickly transformed into a life-long commitment to supporting “the little guy” in “the music bizz”. This is how The Texas Music Cafe® was born.
Rewarded for their vision when PBS picked up the show for distribution to 81 regional markets. The initial PBS broadcast ran from 1997 to 2002 and at its height appeared weekly in 94 million households, before a new distribution deal was put together with Austin Music Network, MeTVAustin, and other outlets.
On June 25, 2022 Andrew Blanton recorded tracks from his upcoming studio album "Laredo" at the Texas Music Cafe in Waco with Josh Fulero on lead guitar.
Room is a wondering saga about the windy interstate highways in South Texas.
One of the early songs penned by Blanton. A fictional tale about an outlaw on the run.
There are times when you pack everything you own and set out for a new life. Sometimes you don't find what you're looking for on the run.
Way Out in the West
I was dreaming of the Milky Way in far west Texas. Sometimes that's where hope begins.
