Brandon Graves Live from Midland Texas

Out for a Sunday ride when I happned on Brandon Graves walking down the sidwewalk with a guitar and had to stop and see what this cat was about.  I was plesanmtly suprised by his cover of Simon and Garfunkles "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her".  Cool dude just walking down the sidewalk making music, and thats what its all about.

Stevie Ochoa and his father Victor Ochoa share memories at the Ochoa home studio. This family has deep musical roots in West Texas. They have worked with some big names in the music business.   The Ochoa Brothers play Tejano, Then there is the smooth Jazz from Viscious Vic. Charlie Piper on accordion, brother Juan on Bass. The younger generation with Stevie and Vito  Ochoa playing all styles and voodoo blues.. extended friends Jody Orona and family and even me, John Pitts has jammed with these cats.
