Lyle Lovett And His Large Band
Four-time Grammy-winning singer, composer and actor Lyle Lovett confirms new nationwide summer tour dates with his renowned Large Band.
An Evening with Lyle Lovett and his Large Band will feature an arrangement of Lovett standards, as well as songs from his critically acclaimed album 12th of June. Watch the band perform on PBS’ “Austin City Limits” last fall.
12th of June was released last year on Verve Records. Produced by Chuck Ainlay and Lovett, the album features a mix of new originals, standards by Nat King Cole and Dave Frishberg, and a Horace Silver instrumental, representing Lovett’s dynamic live performances with his Large Band. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the new album continues to highlight Lovett’s ability to fuse elements of jazz, country, western swing, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Of the album, The Wall Street Journal hails, “Few artists can bring all of these moods and sounds into one place and put a personal stamp on them all; Lyle Lovett does that.”
Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Whether touring with his Acoustic Group or his Large Band, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, was named Texas State Musician and is a member of both the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association Hall of Fame and the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Huntington Beach's David Rosales, and his touring band of Scoundrels,
bring their sun-soaked, heart on the sleeve brand of Americana to the
stage for an immersive new roots experience.
A sound that pairs well with contemporaries they have shared the stage
with in Ben Harper, Brandi Carlile, Matt Costa, The White Buffalo,
Donavon Frankenreiter and Steep Canyon Rangers.
In his acclaimed 2018 full-length debut album, Brave Ones, Rosales
showcased his folk rock songwriting prowess throughout a seamless album
that blended his vintage sonic tastes with fresh vision. Brave Ones took
the listener on a journey through the wind-swept expanse known as the
Mojave High Desert, delving into the rocks and crevices of American
roots music. Much like the remote log cabin studio where Rosales and
longtime friend and collaborator, Matt Grundy (Donavon Frankenreiter),
tracked the record, the album was deep with introspection, wide with
reach and warm in its delivery.
The Brave Ones album has grown to become even more than the music itself
when Rosales co-founded the Orange County, CA based BraveOnes Foundation
– a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation dedicated to raising awareness and
resources that allow children in need to focus on the joys of being a
child. Working with Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and
other local health care facilities, Rosales and his team have raised
over $150,000 for various initiatives and campaigns. They even run the
successful bi-monthly "Meaningful Meals" program that feeds children,
families and health care heroes in the community through local
After a long strange 2020, Rosales is set to release his sophomore
album, REVIVE, in the Summer of 2021.
