Marc Broussard, 8 p.m. Friday, July 17
Singer-songwriter Marc Broussard dazzles audiences with his signature fusion of Southern rock, funk and blues. He is known for hits like “Home” and “Must Be the Water” and released his most recent album, A Life Worth Living, in 2014. Broussard has been a featured performer on many TV programs including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Tickets: $35
Light Crust Doughboys, 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22
The Light Crust Doughboys trace their heritage back to 1931 when the band was founded by the “King of Western Swing,” Bob Wills. After several incarnations and a declaration by the Texas Legislature as the “official music ambassadors of the Lone Star State,” the Doughboys can be found playing a new type of country jazz influenced by the old Western swing classics at venues across the Metroplex. Tickets: $25
The Hunts, Friday, 8 p.m. Sept. 18
The Hunts are an indie folk band of seven siblings from Chesapeake, Virginia. The multi-talented band writes and composes all of their music and members play the violin, acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, mandolin, accordion, ukulele, and piano. The Hunts’ debut album Those Younger Days, featuring “Valentina,” was released June 9. Tickets: $20
