You'll hear some classic rock from the Beatles to Pink Floyd, some original burning jazz fusion, maybe some latin tunes and everthing in between. For this week's launch event Will has gathered some of the most expressive musicians in the Austin area with world-class grammy winning experience.

On electric guitar, we have Dave Scher. On bass is Stephen Zirkel, who has toured with Leonard Cohen, on drums will be Brad Evilsizer [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OJ-rDW-jiY] , and leading the show on violin, Will Taylor who's name as the guy for strings in Austin, has attracted acts like Pearl Jam and Grammy winner Shawn Colvin.

This week's special guest is Bob Livingston.

Bob Livingston is a staple of Texas Country music and is a key player to the outlaw country and cosmic cowboy movement of the 1970’s. He has recorded with the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Butch Hancock among others. He is also a founding member of The Lost Gonzo Band. Bob has toured continuously for over forty-four years and has won the “Album of the Year” award at the 2011 Texas Music Awards for his latest album Gypsi Alibi.

Bob Livingston has brought together a unique blend of cultures of Texas and India to create the sound of Cowboys & Indians. He combines the Texas Country musical style of the West with the ragas, chants, and dances of the East to create a new style colloquially known as “The Wild East.” The group has played in theaters, clubs, and schools all throughout Texas; with over 35,000 students in Texas having seen the show.

Here are some testimonials of Bob Livingston’s Cowboys & Indians:

“I strongly support the inter-cultural emphasis of the work of Mr. Bob Livingston. His contributions to inner-ethnic understanding and appreciation are profound. This opportunity to experience South Asia through comparative musical genres is a delightful and rare opportunity.”
--Yvette C. Rosser – UT Outreach Asia

“Cowboys & Indians is an outstanding, entertaining musical act with wide-ranging, special appeal to audiences of many kinds, young and old.”
--Douglas Shea, Event Coordinator Auditorium on Walter Creek
