Day after day in New Orleans, this all-star lineup is called upon for its top-flight traditional Brass Band repertoire and Second line Parades; and then night after night, they’re called upon again for frontman Derrick Freeman’s signature brass band infusion of classic Soul."

Austin's Home of the Blues since 1975. Established in 1975 by the late Clifford Antone, Antone’s is an iconic blues venue located in downtown Austin.

Over the past 45 years, Antone’s has brought Austin a variety of blues and R&B musicians from across the country including B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles, and James Brown, and helped develop local talent like Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Schneider, Gary Clark Jr., and others. In 2015, the historic brand was restored and a new team brought the iconic venue ba

Happy heavenly birthday, Bobby Blue Bland 💙

“In Austin during the Seventies, Bland came to Antone’s many, many times, and each concert felt like a reunion. He had played at the Victory Grill on the Eastside during the Fifties when he was stationed at Fort Hood, and friends and family came out to celebrate with him on Sixth Street. Every blues-loving musician in town would be there too, and Clifford Antone stood at the side of the stage looking like the proud young man he was.

Whichever headliner was in town those nights and likely staying at the Driskill Hotel across the street would also end up at Antone’s, whether it was Bob Dylan, Boz Scaggs, or any other luminary. They all sat at Bland’s feet and heard the beauty of soul at its very deepest level.”
-Bill Bentley, Austin Chronicle

Happy birthday to New Orleans rhythm & blues guitar great Snooks Eaglin! Eaglin recorded with James Booker, Professor Longhair, and the Wild Magnolias, and was a frequent visitor at Antone’s. He formed his first band with fellow New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint.

"He was unlimited on the guitar,” said Toussaint. “Folks would assume; I can do this or I can do that,' but Snooks wouldn't. There was nothing he couldn't do. It was extraordinary."

Happy birthday to the phenomenal Luther Tucker! A protégé of Robert Jr. Lockwood, the Memphis native began his professional career at 15. He played on some of the most iconic Chess singles, including Little Walter's "Key to the Highway," Muddy Waters' "She's Nineteen Years Old," and Sonny Boy Williamson's "One Way Out."

Tucker played countless shows at Antone's on Guadalupe starting in the mid-80s, often with his old friend and bandmate James Cotton. He released his first album as a frontman on Antone's Records in 1993, and died suddenly that same year.

Happy birthday to one of the best blues drummers ever, the late great Willie “Big Eyes” Smith from the Muddy Waters Blues Band. Willie was Antone’s family for decades, and even played at Clifford Antone’s memorial at Palmer Events Center in 2006. We love booking his son Kenny as often as we can, who is keeping his dad’s legacy alive.

Wow 🤩 2022 was quite the year! We are so proud of the growth in our community and all we have accomplished as an independent music venue. And we are particularly pleased to see (the man, the myth, the legend) Zach Ernst recognized with a nomination for Best Live Music Booker on this year's Austin Music Awards ballot.

We think no other venue in town hosts a seamless blend of local artists, touring bands, and icons quite like Antone's, and would appreciate a vote for Zach and the work he does year-round to keep the calendar so fresh!

Our vinyl shop Big Henry's Vinyl & Gifts has also garnered a nomination for Best Record Store 🎶

Thanks for all your love and support, Austin. The AMA ballot is open until January 30: vote.austinchronicle.com
