Wow! What a great night at The Alcove Cantina!

Thanks SO much to everyone who came out. As you may know, Bill has retired, so last night was our first night out with Matt Simon as the "official" SUIT drummer and he did a great job - especially considering the short time he had to learn the songs.

See y'all again soon!

We're back!

For our first show in almost eight months we're heading back to The Alcove Cantina in Round Rock on Saturday, October 17th! It's gonna be a good one!

After a long LONG career, our drummer, Bill Asa, has retired from the music business. But don't worry, we'll still get him on stage to play a song or two every now and then.

Taking over for Bill is our long-time co-conspirator Matt Simon. Matt has played with us several times over the years, going all the way back to 2008 before we even had a name. So he's no stranger to SUIT.

So come on out and let's celebrate Bill's retirement, Matt's official debut and the fact that live music is back in Round Rock!

Get yer (socially distanced, of course) blues on!

Given the current situation, The Alcove Cantina has postponed live music until capacity limits are increased. So that we will not be playing there on August 22nd.

And with that, we don't have anything booked for the rest of the year. However, we look forward to a time when we can all get together again.

Stay safe everybody and we'll see you soon.

Given the current situation, The Alcove Cantina has postponed live music until August. So there's a possiblity that we might still get to play on August 22nd, but we'll see.

At the moment, our August 16th show at Mean Eyed Cat is still on the books, but we don't know if it will happen.

Stay safe everybodyand we'll see you soon.

Hey y'all,
As we all know, there's not a lot of live music happening these days. As such, our July 12th appearance at Mean Eyed Cat will not be happening.

However, as of this moment, it looks like we're still on for our July 18th date at The Alcove Cantina! This is going to be a very special show. Our drummer, Bill "Roadkill" Asa is retiring and we want to send him off in style. He'll be playing the first set and then handing the sticks over to Matt Simon, who you may recognize from sitting in with us before.

Hopefully we'll see y'all then. Stay safe everybody!

May 12, 2020

As you probably know by now, our May 16th appearance at The Alcove Cantina will not be happening. We still have dates scheduled there for July and August, so hopefully we'll see y'all then. Stay safe everybody!

March 27, 2020

Due to bar and restaurant closures in Travis and Williamson Counties, our March 28th show at The Mill Bar & Grill has been canceled. Hopefully we can reschedule once things are up and running again.

And likewise, our April 5th show at Mean Eyed Cat will not be happeneing either.

Hang in there everybody, we’ll get through this.

What a fantastic night at The Alcove Cantina! We must admit, we were a little worried about the new sound ordinance in Round Rock, but it turned out not to be a problem. The weather was perfect and we had a packed house for most of the night. Plus, we had special appearances by the great Mary Arnold and her sax-playing husband David Arnold.
Thanks SO much to everyone who came out, and of course thanks to the staff of the Alcove for being awesome. We'll see y'all back there on June 1st!

What a great night at The Alcove Cantina! Thanks SO much to everyone who came out. And it didn't rain, either (we seem to have a knack for attracting rain when we play the Alcove). Also, a BIG thanks to Ken Carver of The Rhythm Dawgs for bringing his PA system and running sound for us all night. Finally, thanks to the Alcove staff - see ya next time!

There's a bit of a break in our schedule for the next couple of months. We didn't plan it that way, it's just one of those things that happens sometimes, and we'll be back to our regular schedule in 2019.

We DO have one more for the year, though: on December 15, 2018, w'll be back at one of the the coolest places ever, Black Sparrow Music Parlor in Taylor, Texas.

So until next time, get yer blues on!

Plus, Ken Carver of The Rhythm Dawgs brought his PA and ran sound for us, which was also awesome - thanks, Ken! Finally, thanks to the staff of The Alcove Cantina - see y'all again in August!

Thanks SO much to everyone who helped us celebrate Boat House Grill's last day on Sunday, January 21st. It was sad to see such a cool place close, but WOW what a farewell party! The entire crowd chanting "BOAT HOUSE GRILL! BOAT HOUSE GRILL!" was pretty awesome. :)
And to the owners and staff of Boat House Grill, THANK YOU for giving us a shot back in 2008 and for letting us be a part of the last day - we'll see ya down the road.

The very first SUIT gig was on June 28, 2008, at Boat House Grill. They gave us a chance when nobody had ever heard of us. Between 2008 and 2013 we played there 27 times. At 5:00 PM on January 21st, 2018, after 19 years of service, they closed their doors forever - and we were honored to have been a part of the last day. We finished our last song at exactly 5:00 PM, and that was the end of Boat House Grill.

Next up, we're back at the coolest place in Taylor, Texas, Black Sparrow Music Parlor on March 10th. If you haven't been there you've GOTTA check it out. It's gonna be another good one!

So stay warm and until next time, get yer blues on!

Very sad news today -- Junior's Grill & Icehouse in Round Rock has closed.

We would like to take a moment to thank Brett and the great staff of Junior's for all the opportunities they have given us over the years and wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Goodbye, Junior's, you will be missed!

Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for updates on how we fill the dates we already had booked for Junior's.

Well, that was interesting. It had been misting/drizzling (but not quite raining) all day. Hoping that it would blow over, we went ahead and set up outside and covered everything up with plastic tarps. We waited. It wasn't showing any signs of blowing over -- in fact it was getting worse. Finally, after about 7:00, we figured we'd better either move everything indoors or give up and go home. So we moved everything indoors -- which is no small feat considering how much gear we carry around.

(Side note: the room which we have always referred to as The Pool Room currently has no pool table, so it will now be known as The Back Room.)

We managed to get all the stuff moved and started playing about 9:00 to a small but very enthusiastic group of people. Thanks SO much to everyone who hung out with us; y'all made it all worth it.


By the way, you can probably guess what happened outside as soon as we had everything moved -- no more rain, no more drizzle, no more misting. Not another drop. Oh well.

We'll be back to Junior's on Saturday, December 12th for our last show of 2015. And yeah, we'll dust off the Christmas songs.

Next up we got a VERY rare appearance at The Roadhouse in Round Rock -- this is our only show there this year -- on Friday, November 20th. See ya there!

We recently got to be a part of a music video for world-renowned cowbell player El Borracho, using our song "The Ballad of El Borracho." Check it out HERE!

Also, you can download the song "The Ballad of El Borracho" (for the low low price of $.99) from CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, and many other fine establishments coming soon.

More cowbell!

Update:

El Borracho has hung up his cowbell and retired, but you can still watch the video and download the song. :)

Thanks to everybody who joined us at the Sher Bear We Care Benefit Concert at The Roost On Sunday, September 7th! We haven't seen the final totals, but from what we understand the benefit was quite a success. We were honored to be a part of it, and thanks so much to the organizers for inviting us.

Pretty cool, right?

Our friend Jolene Roxbury called The Roadhouse about our recent show and was able to capture this special message...

Then there's this:

We recently had the pleasure of conversing (via emai) with none other than Jolene Roxbury herself -- whose classic "OB-GYN Answering Machine" inspired our name. There's finally official animation to go along with the audio. Check it out here.

Well, we didn't win the Austin Blues Society's 2012 Heart of Texas International Blues Challenge , but that's okay. We had a ton of fun, had a great time, got to share the stage with a lot of cool people and hear some great music.

Thanks SO much to everyone who supported us in this little endeavor, especially those who came out and cheered (and voted!) for us. Y'all are the best. Also, thanks to the Austin Blues Society for treating ALL the bands so well and making us feel welcome. And besides, there's always next year! :)

PS - Congratulations JT Coldfire! You're goin' to Memphis, dude!
