Success for this "True Americana" ensemble has been about embracing a supergroup ethos while shunning supergroup egos.  At their best, the band represents not just what's right about the Austin TX music community but about live music as a whole.  And they're only getting better.


When Phil Bass, Chris Beall, Phil Hurley, and Lonnie Trevino Jr, four established Austin TX musicians, decide to join forces and play together just because it’s fun, you’re going to get something special. Such is the case for The South Austin Moonlighters, a band that blends blues, folk, soul, rock, and country, who can flip the switch from slow melodic country to gravelly rocking blues without a hitch. Think Little Feat meets Los Lobos with a splash of The Flying Burrito Bros, and you start to peel away the many musical layers of sound that makes up the S.A.M.  Using a four part harmony at times accompanied with some brilliant guitar playing, S.A.M. plays with a full-bodied sound, and puts off an aura of down to earth Southern Blues and Country Rock, that can make even coldest days seem warm.



The Reverent Few 






"Nick & I met the spring of 2011. After our first rehearsal, we found ourselves nestled up at a whiskey bar in Chicago. We bonded over old soul tunes and became instant best friends. Singing songs side by side night after night for a couple of years, exchanging quiet glances we grew to love one another in time.


Through our love and songs, we found ourselves in heavy times, our hearts called us to Austin, Texas in the fall of 2013 to tend to family. We left behind what felt like our entire lives but cultivated new found forever friendships and humble beginnings made for great song-writing.


We recorded our self-produced EP in 2014 and later a full band EP in 2016. In our few years in Austin we’ve endured our greatest losses and are songs echo the sentiments of survival and hope.


Our sound has thumbprints of soul, spiritual and gospel influences, harmonies and hard truths sang with guts and grit. Our greatest influences are our heavenly parents, Tracy Boettcher & Veronica DeChausse, and though one was a singer and one swung a hammer they enforced the importance of humility and humor, integrity, honesty and soul. We sing songs because we have to, we carry on phrases some couldn’t finish and are moved to share with you what really shakes us at our core." --Paige DeChausse





The South Austin Moonlighters

Success for this “True Americana” ensemble has been about embracing a supergroup ethos while shunning supergroup egos. At their best, the band represents not just what’s right about the Austin TX music community but about live music as a whole. And they’re only getting better.
When Phil Bass, Chris Beall, Phil Hurley, and Lonnie Trevino Jr, four established Austin TX musicians, decide to join forces and play together just because it’s fun, you’re going to get something special. Such is the case for The South Austin Moonlighters, a band that blends blues, folk, soul, rock, and country, who can flip the switch from slow melodic country to gravelly rocking blues without a hitch.

Using a four part harmony at times accompanied with some brilliant guitar playing, S.A.M. plays with a full-bodied sound, and puts off an aura of down to earth Southern Blues and Country Rock, that can make even coldest days seem warm.
The Band consist of Lonnie Trevino Jr – Bass & Vocals, Phil Hurley – Guitar & Vocals, Phil Bass – Drums & Vocals, and Chris Beall – Guitar & Vocals.
The Band mainly does Originals songs in their set and for the love of music, they throw in choice Covers that fans and newbie fans absolutely love.
The Bands origin manifested when Lonnie Trevino Jr had the idea of putting together a side group (where they could all “moonlight” on their steady gigs-thus the band’s name), just for the pure joy of playing music. Since then SAM have self-released three CD’s that have garnered “Highest Recommendations” from venue owners and national publications alike for SAM’s “Live At The Saxon Pub” released Nov. 2012, studio album debut “ Burn & Shine” released Feb. 2014, and the newest release, July 2016’s Ghost Of A Small Town.
The joy of music making, the band shares, is a tangible and contagious part of Moonlighters’ shows, which made it effortless for them to quickly build a solid fan base through their Austin residencies and regional travels. During SXSW 2012, buyers from as far away as Europe were anxious to catch a bit of the South Austin Moonlighters’ “magic” thus resulted in signing with German Lable Blue Rose Records releasing “Burn & Shine” Aug. 1st 2014 in Europe and Scadinavia with plans for a summer release of Ghost Of A Small Town in the afore mentioned areas.
The inspiration of SAM stems from the band members’ mutual respect and admiration for each other’s skill and mastery of their instrument. Musicians are always seeking out others who inspire them and challenge them to improve. This group is an amazing example of what can happen when you put a bunch of talented guys in one room with an emphasis on joy and no egos involved. And now be prepared to witness The JOY that is The South Austin Moonlighters!

The Reverent Few

Paige DeChausse (lead vocals) and Nick Boettcher (lead guitar/vocals) soaked in soul, came of age in the gritty great Chicago Blues Scene. Absorbing the soul of R&B, the power of rock-n-roll and the honesty of folk music in the twosome, by now a cache of original music set sights on Austin, TX in 2013. The undeniable power and beauty of DeChausse’s vocals, Boettcher’s fiery guitar work, and the ESP-like intuition of the band behind them quickly branded THE FEW as band to watch. It’s nearly impossible to sit or stand still at a show... the group’s chemistry and genuine charisma onstage is at once mesmerizing and infectious.
