Shinyribs defies genres as a sonic melting pot of Texas blues, New Orleans R&B funk, horn-driven Memphis soul, country twang, border music, big band swing, and roots-rock. The Austin-based nine-piece (sometimes 10-piece) supergroup is led by Kevin Russell, the charismatic frontman with colorful suits and extravagant shoes who continuously swaps out an electric guitar for a ukulele and never falls short of creating a cinematic experience with on-stage antics that often include him donning a light-up cloak or leading a conga line through the crowd.

"Sweetening," the first single from their album Late Night TV Gold, is a different subject matter for Russell, "I don't write a lot of love songs. But when I do they are sweet as hell. This one came pure from the spigot of my stupid romantic heart. The golden rays of light shining down through the wet magnolias onto a plate of peaches; the first rain after a long drought. Nothing like falling in love. If they could bottle it I am sure we would make laws against it." 

Shinyribs was named Best Austin Band at the Austin Chronicle's Austin Music Awards (2017, 2018), awarded Album of the Year for I Got Your Medicine (2017), and Best 2020-Themed Song for "Stay Home" (2020). Shinyribs have recorded six albums: 2010's Well After Awhile; Gulf Coast Museum (2013); Okra Candy (2015); 2017's award-winning I Got Your Medicine; a compilation of holiday standards and new compositions, The Kringle Tingle (2018); and the soulful release Fog & Bling (2019). Shinyribs' latest project, Late Night TV Gold, was released in 2021.

Formed in 2004, Felix y Los Gatos is a national touring act with their roots planted firmly in the desert Southwest. With 16+ years of stage experience, the Gatos have an improvisational style that is uniquely their own. "Zydetejano Blues," as the band refers to their sound, is a unique blend of Latin, blues, Tejano, and rockin' outlaw country. The Gatos have been featured at the Telluride Blues Festival, Durango Blues Train, Zion Canyon Music Festival, and countless other large national festivals. Their undying passion to play music has allowed them the privilege of sharing the stage with acts such as Grammy award-winning Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers, Tab Benoit, BeauSoleil, Ozomatli, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, as well as featuring John Popper of Blues Traveler on the track "Hot Damn" from their album OCHO. Felix y Los Gatos remains one of the most popular and musically diverse sounds in the Southwest.
