Great experience

My husband and I took this tour while on a quick weekend away from Dallas to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Kendolyn and Chris were enthusiastic tour guides who shared their insights in to the history of the live music scene in Austin. We visited 3 different live music venues with time to enjoy a beverage while listening to the performances. A great experience for music appreciators.

We went to three clubs all with a completely different vibe and musical style. And we didn’t have to drive. The group is small enough that you don’t feel in anyway like you’re following some guy holding up an umbrella. It was Saturday night and we walked in easily everywhere, they even had some well placed seating for us at an otherwise packed venue. We see a lot of live music and all the acts we saw were superior. Our guide Jax, and driver Chris, were clearly interested in all of us having a good time. Mission accomplished. I will do this tour every time I visit Austin in future.

Abel and Trace were our incredible hosts. They took us to hear great music in places that were hidden gems in Austin. I'd highly recommend that you take this musical adventure with them. Both are well versed in the musical history of Austin and will show you a great time. I feel we played a kindred spirits and friends. Thank you Dana, Tyler and Lesley

We visited 3 venues and would have been happy to stay all evening in any of them. Guide was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. We were driven around in a new minibus which was great as I thought we were going to have to walk since it was described as a ' music crawl'
