The best kept secret in music


"REVIEW-4 Stars- "One Roadhouse Away""

The blues is authentic when the music reflects the life of the artist. This is the real deal. Emilio Crixell's "One Roadhouse Away" captures the emotion and experience that we admired in the masters like Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, and others whose music inspires and informs so much that has come since. Right from the opening track, with clean guitar riffs that would've made Stevie Ray Vaughan proud, your ears are engaged and ready for a set of music that connects directly to the heart. - Paul "The Lobster" Wells 98.5 KFOX San Jose / San Francisco, CA .

Emilio recently released his debut CD -
"One Roadhouse Away."
It has started to recieve airplay on radio stations from the San Francisco Bay Area to South Texas and as far away as Germany and Holland.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in 1954 in Brownsville, TX, Emilio Crixell began playing bass at age 13. By the time he picked up guitar in 1988, Emilio was a veteran of multiple music scenes in Texas, New York, and San Francisco ranging from Rock n' Roll, Blues, and Punk Rock to Tex-Mex, and Cajun.

Today, a 38 year veteran of the stage, Emilio is a seasoned professional and crowd pleaser.

Playing bars and taverns in Texas by age 16, he quickly learned the importance of keeping audiences engaged, the dancefloor packed, and the bar's cash register ringing. In 1989, he formed and fronted the Texas Manglers to showcase his new-found guitar prowess and lifelong love of roadhouse-style blues. The Manglers started performing to enthustiastic crowds all over the San Francisco Bay Area, headlining and opening for national acts such as Delbert McClinton, C.J. Chenier, Malo, the Chris Duarte Band, and the late, great Doug Sahm, among others.

In 2004, Emilio assembled a group of musicians to record his first solo effort. The result is a "supergroup" of the Bay Area's finest players, and "One Roadhouse Away," an infectious collection of barn burnin' rockers and soulful blues.

2006 finds Emilio re-locating to the Lake County Area and will be abailable for bookings beginning in February, or sooner depending on dates.
