Little Charlie Baty (ex-Nightcats bandleader and guitar hero) who, according to Rolling Stone, "plays as much guitar as Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy put together," RW Grigsby (bassist extraordinaire) and Wes Starr (famed Austin drummer) has played with a who's who of Texas music royalty. They are currently up for four Blues Music Awards in Memphis for Best Blues Band, Best Traditional Blues Album, Best Harmonica Player & Best Bass Player!
