The best kept secret in music

The local music community fell in love with the ragin' Cajun since he started coming here from Seguin as guitarist in the Surfin' Cajuns in the early '80s. Fronting his next band, Two Hoots and a Holler, Broussard dripped with star power. Local musicians, meanwhile, were awed by Broussard's instinctive grace on the guitar; his single-string runs were songs within the songs. - Michael Corcoran


“Rick (formerly Ricky) Broussard has never really done things the easy way. In 1982, before musicians and music fans in these parts were convinced that Johnny Cash and the Clash were kindred spirits, Broussard put together a band called Two Hoots and a Holler. The public finally caught up to Broussard, his bandmates and their approach to making sweaty, infectious, raucous, roots-based rock 'n' roll. The latest disc from Broussard/Two Hoots is "Songs Our Vinyl Taught Us," a first-class collection of covers that show Broussard and the band is still among the best at fusing influences. - Jim Beal


For 20 years, Rick Broussard's Two Hoots & a Holler has epitomized the best aspects of Texas roots music, merging rockabilly with trad-country and adding enough punk abandon and songwriting flair to keep the whole thing from sounding retro-gimmicky or quaint. - Gilbert Garcia


Highly recommended!!! From the Cramps to Buddy Holly to Roky Erickson, this [Songs Our Vinyl Taught Us] is a CD of tunes that the Hoots have played live over the years but never recorded. Fronted by the talented, combustible Rick Broussard (Houston musician David Beebe calls him "the only real rock and roller I've ever met"), Two Hoots and a Holler have won Best Roots Band at the Austin Music Awards 7 times. Their CD "No Man's Land" has become a Texas cult classic and is a perennial seller for TMRU 13 years after it's 1991 release! - Matt Eskey
