Greg Caldwell is a name which is growing rapidly in Central Texas country music circles and among Texas Music lovers. Greg and his 7 piece band play live venues and private parties throughout central Texas and Oklahoma. They crank out country covers from the 50's right up through the present with an emphasis on the last twenty years and modern country. But the highlight of the show is when Greg starts on his own original tunes. Of course the type of show varies based on preferences of the venue or private function, but you can always count on hearing good country music complete with fiddle and steel guitar. This is the perfect band for functions requiring country covers with the option of some original Texas Music. Greg has opened for acts such as Brian White, Hal Ketchum, Zona Jones, and Wade Hayes. With over 100 yrs of combined experience, Greg's band never fails to deliver quality country music as well as the old rock hits and dance music if desired. The bus is loaded with all of the PA equipment and lights necessary to perform in most locations and settings, and the performance can be taylored to the event as background music or a full blown show.

Believe it or not, Greg's first performance was in front of 10,000 people at the Oklahoma State FFA convention. What a break in to the music business! The convention had announced to all the chapters that they were going to be opening with live music, so Greg mustered a few other FFA buddies and put together a little band called The Four Boys Band. They were selected to open the convention with 2 songs and Greg was hooked. According to Greg the whole process actually started with a knee injury, "Actually, the whole thing only came together due to an injury I had during track, which put me on the sidelines for the season and left me with idle time. It was the best injury I ever had." After the convention, The Four Boys band entered some contests and played several venues in central Oklahoma. Greg says, "We even played in the bar where it is rumored that Garth Brooks bought the song, "Friends in Low Places". Eventually the decision of college vs. the band came so Greg headed south chasing "warmer weather, a college education, and of course, beautiful Texas women." After graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in Finance and International Business, he headed straight to graduate school for a quick year and a half in Phoenix. After Graduating from the American Graduate School of International Management with a Masters, Greg was ready to get back to Texas, "Phoenix was nice, but I couldn't wait to get back to Texas, so back I came to discover my career." In 2001, with a finance career firmly established, Greg decided it was time to seriously pursue music. After spending a few months singing and playing 'open mic' nights around Austin, he eventually helped found a band. They went by the name of "Greg Caldwell and Texas Tradition". The band played a lot right from the start and was fortunate enough to open for another local band in bars all over the Austin area. Eventually "Texas Tradition" lost their drummer and that run came to an end. Shortly thereafter, Greg met Mark Heinrich, the founder and leader of the well known Austin based band called Cheyenne. Mark and Greg embarked on a new venture together and that alliance eventually morphed into Greg's current band. Greg says that he feels privileged to be playing with his current talented line up, "I am very excited about the project and look forward to a lot of serious pickin' and grinnin' in Central Texas and wherever else the road may lead."

Kenny -
Kenny's interest in music began early. From 6-12th grades he was in intense classical training with the University of Texas String Project. Along the
way he picked up guitar and started using his violin to play along with his
Dad's Bob Wills records. By age 19, he was performing with a band called "Texas Special." This band played Austin venues such as the Silver Dollar, Lumberyard, Whiskey River and The Broken Spoke, as well as numerous venues across the state. The band opened shows for touring acts such as Hank Williams Jr and The Bellamy Brothers. Then is was onto Country Road, where he teamed up for the first time with bassist Mike Matoska. Country Road was one of Austin's most popular dance halls bands at the time. Later, Kenny put together a band called KIKKER, which enjoyed much success with their original songs played on Austin's KICK 92.1 FM, as well as an extremely full live schedule. Kenny took some of his original songs that KIKKER made popular and released his first and only CD in 1998, title, "The House of Blue Nights." Kenny and his band, The Upsetters, which also included Mike Matoska, kept themselves as busy as they wanted to be. They were managed by Texas Sounds in Dickinson, TX. They also opened numerous concerts for touring acts such as, Tracy Byrd, Restless Heart, Charlie Daniels Band, Gary Allan
