Sounds From The Shed: “Goodbye San Antonio, Hello Amsterdam” with Garrett T. Capps, Augie Meyers, and Max Baca y Los Texmaniacs

On a hot Sunday afternoon in July, we gathered some of San Antonio’s finest into the shed for a recording session for the ages. In advance of his upcoming European tour, Garrett T. Capps opted to change Doug Sahm’s original lyric from “Goodbye San Francisco” to “Goodbye San Antonio.” Augie Meyers, who worked closely with Sahm for years, didn’t object. I believe his exact words were “Hell, what do I care? It ain’t my song . . .”

Between them, Augie Meyers and Max Baca y Los Texmaniacs boast two Grammy wins and five nominations. San Antonio Music Royalty to say the least. You can find autographed posters of both Max and Augie proudly displayed at my favorite restaurant, Garcia’s, on Fredericksburg Rd. If you’ve never been, you must go ASAP. The food tastes like the music sounds.

Stay tuned for more Sounds From The Shed (subscribe to this blog and never miss a post). Over the upcoming months, we’ll be sharing more music from South Texas legends, and legends-to-be.

Sounds From The Shed: “Trouble Country” with Garrett T. Capps

I had the pleasure of recording San Antonio Tex-Mex artist Garrett T. Capps with his band, ‘The Three Timers’ a couple weeks ago in the backyard shed.

Garrett’s working on a new podcast (stayed tuned in 2020), and wrote Trouble Country as its theme song. A modern Country tune with a melody that instantly gets stuck in your head (disclaimer), I can’t help but picture what Johnny Cash might play if he made an appearance on King of the Hill.

A few days after this recording, Garrett returned to the shed with Augie Meyers and Max Baca y Los Texmaniacs to record two more tunes. We’ll be posting video from that session next week, so stay tuned.

I can’t wait to see how the San Antonio music scene unfolds over the next few years. Our city is full of great talent just waiting to be heard, and more opportunities arise each year for them to showcase their music. It’s a great time to live in San Antone.
