Besides touring throughout the state of Texas performing an average of 65 concerts per year, the Singing Cadets have also spread the Spirit of Aggieland around the globe.

A little about John:

John Pointer, a.k.a. “Squinty Phil”, grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, got a degree in Cello Performance and Composition from UT Austin and has been a full time musician based there ever since.

He created and led the pioneering a cappella & body percussion ensemble Schrödinger’s Cat, and was the beatboxer in the Chili’s Baby Back Ribs commercials. He’s a pretty ridiculous guitarist. He played Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and Roger in RENT, has commercially released 9 albums with several different groups, and the Mayor and City Council of Austin declared January 27th 2005 “John Pointer Day”. What?! Yes… evidently they do that down there.

John is an 11-time Austin Music Award Winner, world-touring indie artist, and founder of both Patronism.com and the Live Music Capital Foundation. The first is a pay-what-you-feel subscription platform to connect artists and patrons directly, for the benefit of both. The second is a nonprofit which connects major patronage directly to the venues we all know and love, so they can pay artists better and focus on selling quality, not just alcohol. It’s an easy way to put capital directly into Live Music in the Live Music Capital.

A little about Guy: 

Guy Forsyth Blues Band >

Guy Forsyth began his career in Austin, Texas, in the early 90’s, starting up an all-acoustic, aggressively non-electrified band of no small renown called the Asylum Street Spankers. He then became known on his own as a bluesman – guitarist, harp player and composer – and has appeared in a number of independent feature films (including Waking Life). Guy has built a dedicated following and has released eight albums and tours throughout Texas, across the US and at least twice a year in Europe, where his debut album “High Temperature” (Lizard Disc) is considered blues canon. Besides High Temperature, his discography includes three records on Antone’s (Needlegun, Steak, and Can You Live Without), a number of live records (Unrepentant Schizophrenic Americana, Live at Gruene Hall and the DVD 300 Miles From There To Here), two studio albums on his own Small and Nimble Records (Love Songs: For And Against, Calico Girl).

Most recently Guy released a brand new studio record called The Freedom To Fail on Blue Corn, has just finished recording two new studio projects, a brand new blues album tentatively titled The Pleaser, and a new full-length studio album from his side project the Hot Nut Riveters called Moustashe Girl, in addition to helping Lizard Disc ready the 20th Anniversary release of recently unearthed tracks from the High Temperature sessions called Red Dress, which will likely be released on both CD and vinyl in June in both Europe and America, though in very different packages.

A little about Emily: 

With songs as soulful as they are winsome, broody as they are bluesy, “Certain Kinda” – the debut album of Emily Gimble (The Gimbles, Asleep at the Wheel, Marshall Ford Band, Warren Hood and the Goods) – is a study in musical range, instrumental craft, and long, deep relationships.

The three-time “Best Keyboards” Winner of the Austin Music Awards (2012-2014) and the granddaughter of one of the most legendary fiddle players who ever lived – Johnny Gimble – Emily foregrounds instead her unmistakable voice here, coaxing it into jazz and blues, vacillating between whispers and bellows. The song “East of Kerns” seduces the listener into a blacktop road trip, letting us gaze out the window with a heart full of longing and a head full of memories. “With One Eye” finds Emily defiant and truth- telling, belting out proclamations to a frustrating lover before giving way to percussive, sultry vocals. “Canyons of Gold” is an arms-stretched-wide embrace of growing up, with a touch of gospel vocals for good measure. Title track “Certain Kinda” is soft and thoughtful by turns, assurances to a companion undercut by notes of ambivalence. “It’s a wonder that we ever made it,” Emily sings, but this album – cut, mixed, and mastered with the likes of Jimmie Vaughan in just less than a year - is just the opposite.

A little about Malford: 

Milligan also fronted Randy Jacobs' band the Boneshakers in 2001-2003. He left the Boneshakers to form his own group in Austin, also called the Malford Milligan Band, which released Rides Again... on the Varese Sarabande label in 2006.

Currently, Malford has returned to Austin and started getting back into the local music scene. An early highlight of his return to Austin was his appearance (along with David Grissom) at Antone's for Blue Tuesday performing two of Storyville’s classic songs; Good Day for the Blues and What Passes for Love both from the second Storyville album.

The Peterson Brothers were born and raised deep in the “Lost Pines” of Bastrop, Texas. Alex, 16, on bass and violin and vocals; and Glenn Jr., 18 on guitar and lead vocals are two brothers, one sound. Their music combines the classic blues sounds of legends with their own unique blend of soul-infused inspiration.

In just a few short years they have had the opportunity to open for B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys, Lisa Marie Presley, and many more. They have also played with Buddy Guy, Michael Burks, and Pinetop Perkins. The Peterson Brothers have gained the attention of the legendary Bootsy Collins who has become one of their mentors.

Recently, the City of Austin has announced that Thursday the 3rd of October (Stevie Ray Vaughan's Birthday), will be named "Peterson Brothers' Day" in Austin, a huge honor in recognition of their musical achievements to date.
