[Check out the cool dancing in the aisles at 2:09 and 4:06 !]

+Bill Kirchen , "The Titan of The Telecaster", performing Christmas Eve at the 2016  Armadillo Christmas Bazaar on Saturday, 12-24-2016.

Closing down the +Armadillo Bazaar  was twang-banging diesel powered Bill Kirchen and his flaming hot guitar! On stage with Bill was Rick Richards on drums, and David Carroll on bass. Leeann Atherton later joined Mr. Bill for a Christmas song. Kicking off the show was a troupe of little youngsters joining the band for some children's Christmas spirit!

Jai Malano ! - 2016 Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

+Jai Malano  performing the afternoon show at the 2016 +Armadillo Bazaar on Friday, 12-16-2016.

"I AM JAI MALANO
Texas native. Florida girl with Louisiana roots.
Singer-songwriter for Roots-Blues, Blues-Rock, & Rock 'n' Roll.
This is my life. These are my stories. ." Source: http://www.jaimalano.com/

Jai gave a wonderful performance at the Bazaar. After chatting briefly with her before the show, I was amazed at her enormous talent! "Joy" is the word I would use in describing her stage presence! So much so, that it is what I felt coming right through the camera lens. It is what makes photographing such a performer such a pleasure! Mark my words, she is destined to be one of the Great Ladies of blues, jazz and soul!

Carolyn Wonderland ! - 2016 Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

+carolyn wonderland  performing for the 2016 +Armadillo Bazaar  at the morning show for the Bazaar's 41st anniversary on Sunday, 12-18-2016.

Carolyn Wonderland is one of the sweethearts of the Bazaar. Besides her amazing talents as a musician/singer/songwriter, she is a down to earth sweet human being who cares for her fellow man as evidenced by her support of various charitable causes.

"Church with Carolyn" this past Sunday morning was a wonderful event! As always! Assisting Carolyn entertaining the fans was +Shelley King .

"Carolyn Wonderland (born November 9, 1972 is an American blues singer, songwriter and musician. She is married to A. Whitney Brown. Carolyn Wonderland was born Carolyn Bradford in Houston, Texas. Wonderland dropped out of Houston's Langham Creek High School to pursue her music ambitions.

In 1999, Wonderland moved to Austin, Texas; in 2001, she lost her apartment lease after her landlord became ill, and decided to live out of her van since she was spending more than 300 days a year on the road performing.

Wonderland's instrumental abilities include guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, trumpet and piano. Although primarily a blues artist, Wonderland likes to incorporate elements of country, swing, zydeco, surf, gospel, soul, and cumbia into her musical mix. She usually performs with Cole El-Saleh on keyboards and Kevin Lance on drums."

Dale Watson ! - 2016 Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

Dale Watson performing for the 2016 +Armadillo Bazaar at the evening performance for the Bazaar's 41st anniversary on Wednesday, 12-14-2016.

"Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, latest album Call Me Insane, was recorded in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines (Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, etc.). The Austin-based honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music. Album highlights include “Jonesin’ For Jones,” a love song to the music of the legendary George Jones, “A Day At A Time,” about “getting by by barely getting by;” “Call Me Insane,” the album’s moody title track; “Bug Ya For Love,” a fun warning to all the single ladies, and “Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies.” (Yes, it is an answer song to the Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson hit.) “Crocodile Tears” is a tear-in-your-beer country song that sounds like an instant classic and “Burden Of The Cross” reveals Watson’s serious side."
