Some Truth in Music Episodes:
Son of Santos-
Brothers Luis and Nick Soberon learned their first chords on guitar from their father Santos. Born and raised in Beaumont, Texas, the two brothers shared a bedroom for nearly 14 years before they both eventually ended up in Austin, Texas, which they now call home. With a sick repertoire of non-traditional covers and wicked originals, Sons of Santos are making some sweet, raw, acoustic music.
Bus Stop Stallions-
The Bus Stop Stallions are a modern day version of the nine piece funk/soul/dance bands from the 70′s and 80′s and have been rocking the Live Music Capitol of the World for the last several years. The Bus Stop Stallions have been steadily building an audience in and around Austin with their brand of soul/rock ranging from “spacey jazz fusion” to “bubbly bass lines and a heavy dose of synthesized keys…” (Austin Chronicle).
They were recently featured on KUT’s Austin Music Minute by Laurie Gallardo – “Have horn section, will travel. Very reminiscent of the funk/soul outfits from the ‘70s and ‘80s, a la Earth, Wind & Fire. Just toss in a little Stevie Wonder for good measure…”
