Hello all,

Hill Country! We start downstairs around 10pm and play 2 long sets till late. Hill Country is a Texas BBQ restaurant and music spot with a nice sound system and stage. You can get some good BBQ and/or beer till late….The whole band is on this gig- welcome back, Scott!
Jay Collins and The Kings County Band – Thursday, Dec 10th- 10pm at
Hill Country
Featuring: Jay- saxes and lead vocals. Moses Patrou- percussion and vocals. Scott Sharrard- guitar/vocals. Dred Scott- keys. Jeff Hanley- bass. Diego Voglino-drums.
One of the most sought-after musicians in the jazz, rock, and blues arenas, Jay Collins is known for currently working with the Gregg Allman Band, Levon Helm (of The Band), The Organiks, and the Chris Bergson Band. In addition, Jay has performed extensively with the Allman Brothers Band, Jacky Terrasson, James Hunter, Bobby Sanabria, and the late jazz musicians Andrew Hill and LeRoy Vinnegar. Collins and the Kings County Band mix up blues, New Orleans rhythms, jazz, and rock into a modern patchwork of root-bound sound.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you this Thursday. Thanks!

Quotes "With a surprisingly gruff voice, he delivers his rollicking original tunes that blend the down-and-out sensibility of Tom Waits with the barrelhouse American roots sound of The Band.-San Francisco Chronicle/Contra Costa Times"Collins's soulful croak definitely deserves to be heard."-Time Out NY"Some musicians simply sound good, and Mr. Collins is one of them. He has flow..."-New York Times"He has killer tone! Anybody who's into a good smokin' tenor sax—ya'll in for a treat!"-Gregg Allman (Allman Brothers Band)
