Full Service Band: Singer/Songwriter Showcase
Friday, August 3rd - 6:00pm-9:00pm
Friday Night Local Band Live Music Showcase at Southern Star Brewing Company featuring the Full Service band.
Full Service is a four-piece band of off-beat weirdos grounded in Austin, TX since 2004 and carved lean and smooth by over 12 years of touring the US countryside.
In 2018, Full Service will be embarking on a year-long tour – “The Hop n’ Along Tour” - playing acoustic shows at craft breweries all across the United States leading up to the 4th Full Service Circus Festival (Austin, TX, October 2018)! Most of the breweries have been recommended by FanSaws in each town and at each stop, the band is making a video blog reviewing the brewery (reviewing is a loose term)! Keep up with the video blog by subscribing to the Full Service Youtube Channel!
They’ve released 13 studio albums including the summer 2017 release Welcome Home as well as an additional all-originals Christmas album (Full Service Saves Christmas); a surf-rock record under the name “Seaweed Sandwich” and even a hip-hop record performing as “Beatcake.” As a live band, they are known for their split personality: playing an equal number of uber-intimate fan-hosted acoustic shows (knows as the “20 Tour” since 2011) and sweaty rock electric shows on the big stages.
They are one of the most adaptable original bands in the game today both stylistically and as live performers. They have done gigs for thousands on festivals and rock cruises (311 Caribbean Cruise four times; Rombello Cruise) and as a direct support for acts such as 311, State Radio, RX Bandits, The Wailers, etc. but have also played thousands of backyards, breweries, classrooms, professional sports games (Houston Astros, Austin Sol), camp-sites, block parties, yoga classes and even assisted living facilities!
The Full Service fan-base is entirely grassroots won over thru years of innovative touring and genuine fan engagement. They have hosted three successful “Full Service Circus” festivals (’13, ’14, ’16) in Austin that drew 300+ fans each time from 35+ different states spending a weekend in Austin, TX for a weekend of total immersion in the lifestyle and music of Full Service. They also have a popular weekly podcast (“The Whalepod”) and a vibrant YouTube channel with weekly comedy skits and music videos.

Southern Star Brewery Pint Night with Cycles from Denver Colorado at Last Concert Cafe
1403 Nance St, Houston, Texas 77002
$10 at the door, pint glass and 2 beer tickets with entry.
Cycles epitomize the power-trio format with ripping guitar, fat bass grooves played out through furious slapping, and dynamic drum beats flowing over intricate tempo changes. Each member wields a unique take on their instrument that when played together, forms a truly fresh and cohesive sound. Patrick Harvey commands the guitar with speed and precision reminiscent of Jimmy Herring while using his loop pedal virtually as its own instrument, a skill unique only to him. Michael Wood has subtly forged a drum style that showcases his rare ability to mashup funky hip-hop beats with frenzied rock riffs and only displays flashy chops when necessary. At the heart of the band lies Tucker McClung’s dominant slap-bass chops that captivate audiences while pumping the musical blood through the band. Cy
Drawing influence from artists such as Rage Against the Machine, J. Dilla, Primus, Weather Report, and many more, Cycles fuses an eclectic blend of genres to produce an original sound that has become harder and harder to find. Although only two years old, Cycles have over 200 shows under their belt with tours extending across the entire U.S.

TreynWrek: Singer/Songwriter Showcase
Friday, August 17th - 7:00pm-9:00pm
Friday Night Local Band Live Music Showcase at Southern Star Brewing Company featuring TreynWrek, a high energy three piece Texas Blues and Funk Rock band from Houston, Texas.
In 2011, because of similar tastes in music and roots in blues and rock, Trey Dryden (guitarist and vocalist) and Tim Hutto (drummer) embarked on forming a new band. They shortly thereafter brought in heavy metal bassist James Breaux from Houma, LA to form a power trio. With almost seven years under their belt and all of the original members, TreynWrek has become a well oiled machine, providing original music along with classic rock and blues cover songs that will please any crowd. TreynWrek brings a mix of originality, passion, and devotion for putting on the best crowd pleasing performance possible, whether it’s in a small venue or in front of thousands of people. TreynWrek is one of the hardest working bands in the Houston area and perform over 120 shows a year. They have shared their music and reached new fans in different corners of Texas such as Freeport, Huntsville, Galveston, Arlington, Fort Worth, Sweetwater and continue to branch farther outside of the Houston area. TreynWrek has performed in many notable Houston venues including The Revention Music Center, The Continental Club, Fitzgerald's, Dan Electro's Guitar Bar, The Big Easy and The Scout Bar. In addition, they have performed at many events and festivals such as the Montrose Beer & Gun Club’s Cook-off & Music Festival, Rory Miggins Memorial Irish Stew Cook-off & Music Festival, Houston’s Tamale Festival, Pearland Crawfish Festival, Spring Crawfish Festival, Texas Lone Star Bike Rally, Regional International Blues Competition and numerous benefit shows to give back to the community. TreynWrek has produced and released two albums and are currently working on their third album, which they feel will showcase their growth and diversity over the history of the band. TreynWrek has also been self-managed from the beginning and currently continues to book and perform lives shows throughout Texas.

American Dreamer: Singer/Songwriter Showcase
Friday, August 31st - 7:00pm-9:00pm
Friday Night Local Band Live Music Showcase at Southern Star Brewing Company featuring American Dreamer, a folk ensemble from Austin, TX. They play original folk music with rich string accompaniment. Their music is an original and lush sound they call ‘orchestral folk’.
American Dreamer is comprised of Sasha Klare-Ayvazian (vocals/guitar), Audrey Lee (violin), Courtney Castaneda (cello), Dana Wygmans (vocals, bass), and Rick Palese (drums)
“The Texas-based quintet cultivates a sense of warmth and wonder with their incredible blend of folk, orchestral, and popular stylings.” –Atwood Magazine
The seed for American Dreamer was born in 2006 while Sasha was attending Oberlin College. Sasha’s freshman roommate was cellist Danny McCormick. Sasha came from a rock background and Danny from a classical upbringing, but over the year the two played and performed together finding commonalities between the two styles. After Sasha graduated from Oberlin College, this folk-classical fusion concept lay dormant for several years until he moved to Austin to pursue his Master of Music in Music Education from the University of Texas at Austin. At UT, Sasha connected with peers Audrey, Dana, Courtney, and Rick–all former or current UT graduate students–and together breathed new life into this sound. Expanding beyond just cello and guitar, American Dreamer is now a quintet with three classically trained musicians.
American Dreamer strives to create a sound that, while steeped in both folk and classical music, is not precisely either, with the hope of exploring the space in between. While their music is fundamentally simple, it unfolds into a multi-layered soundscape. Beautifully blended strings coupled with honest lyrics and rich vocal harmonies provide listeners with a lot to sink their ears into.
