The best kept secret in music


"Country Standard Time"

Lucky Tomblin creates an atmospheric, eclectic set that brings together elements of western swing, Tex-Mex, and blues with just a hint of '60s rock'n'roll.Moreover, many of the songs on this recommended disc provide a smart excuse for cheek-to-cheek dancing, Texas roadhouse style.
- Ken Burke

"Vintage Guitar magazine"

“It'll be a minor miracle if Austin's Lucky Tomblin Band does much gigging, considering the individual members' various commitments and bulging calendars. There's a laid-back feel.... and the repertoire is western swing, Tex-Mex, and honky-tonk -- pure Texas.” - Dan Forte - Check This Action

"The Philadelphia Inquirer"

"a hot band featuring some of Austin's finest musicians, including guitarist Redd Volkaert and piano man Earl Poole Ball. They get plenty of chance to show their stuff - but never show off - on a quite engaging set of traditional country that also touches on Western swing, blues and conjunto. - Nick Cristiano

"All Music Guide"

"....Take the Lucky Tomblin Band. Its specialty is Western swing, that Texas-based style made famous by Bob Wills and featuring lots of fancy steel and electric guitar licks. Lead vocalist Tomblin and company add lively piano and eschew the traditional twin fiddles for a trim, muscular sound. This all works exceptionally well....and is sure to capture the attention of ardent Western swing fans. - Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Former San Antonio-based Lucky Tomblin was a regional favorite early in his career and a compadre of Doug Sahm, having opened for the late Sir Douglas on one of his Last Real Texas Blues Band tours.
The rest of the players in the band reads like a "who's who" of Austin's A-list and includes pianist Earl Poole Ball (Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Buck Owens, Byrds), steel guitar and Dobro player Cindy Cashdollar (Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Dylan, Dwight Yoakam, Beausoleil), guitarist Redd Volkaert (Merle Haggard, Dale Watson, Ray Price) and bassist Sarah Brown (Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Dr. John), drummer Jon Hahn (Radney Foster, Joe Ely) and rhythm guitarist Bobby Arnold, who also engineered the sessions as well as co-produced the CD with Lucky Tomblin.
