While cookouts and hayrides may be off the agenda for a while, one Austinite’s supplying a perfect outdoor soundtrack. As a co-founder of stomp-folk act Hello Wheels and an accomplished songwriter on his own accord, Nick Garza has always drawn inspiration from a myriad of musical traditions across the Lone Star State. But today Garza’s kicking off a whole new chapter of Tex-Mex eclecticism with his country outfit Nick Garza’s Get Along.
The Get Along finds Garza reuniting with Hello Wheels drummer Josh Halpern and bassist Gary Calhoun James for the upcoming debut full-length, Heartbreak and Enchiladas and for the record’s first entry, Nick Garza’s Get Along has enlisted the help of Texas Tornadoes and The Sir Douglas Quintet’s Augie Meyers on Vox organ as well as Grammy winners Max and Josh Baca from Los Texmaniacs on bajo sexto and accordion, respectively.
Fitting that this first offering from Heartbreak and Enchiladas comes on the final day you can enjoy the legendary enchi’s at Dart Bowl, so let this rustic roster get you in the mood for some Texas nostalgia with “Muchacha”!
