Live Event Randall | The Cowboy Club | July 22nd

Randall and Scott Halley will be performing at The Cowboy Club on July 22nd at 9 PM. Tragically, Ty Young lost his life on June 25th in a tragic motorcycle accident and will not be performing. This isn’t the official memorial, as that is scheduled on the 31st of July, but we are celebrating his life in remembrance of him.

The Infamous Joke

I was recently fired from a gig because of a joke in a bar. It isn’t important what bar but some people are curious what joke I told so — here we go

In this business, a large part of the money you make are made of tips, CDs, and other merchandise so you try to find creative ways to ask people to put money in your tip jar.

I pointed to the shiny tip bucket and informed everyone that all the money went toward charity, which was a worthy cause

Everyone went awe that’s awesome – Which is the perfect setup for a joke

That’s when I hit them with “That’s right. All the money goes to Charity or Cinnamon or Crystal or whoever is working the BOOM BOOM Room tonight. Lord knows I have already paid for their college educations at least 3 times. They need the help to be librarians so let’s all try to pitch in to help them out.”


They were so offended they left and called the owner and said they would never come back. The rest of the bar was laughing but obviously, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Booking After Covid


People are finally starting to get out in the world again. It’s sad to see some pretty slow turnouts for some local artists though. Truth is, none of us will survive if club venues are holding musicians accountable for people not turning out during a pandemic.

In my opinion, the bar’s primary business model is to sell liquor and the entertainer is there to entertain the drinkers. The Club or Bar is not in the business of selling concert seats. I know that bars and clubs don’t need entertainers to bring people into their establishment to drink and can simply provide a jukebox for music, but that isn’t the point. The venue has to love live music and wants to provide something special for its patrons, pure and simple.

The venues should listen to the submitted Music or check out the entertainer’s Electronic Press Kit to see if they are a fit for their business. Many artists are able to change genres and are versatile, while other artists have their niche. Either way, a live music venue can attract the customer that loves live music and isn’t impressed with just a dollar in the jukebox. On a side note, I have seen other establishments that have a jukebox and live music, and a customer be more willing to put a dollar in the slot for one song, many times the same song the entertainer just performed, while they can’t seem to put their dollar in the entertainer’s tip bucket, who has been playing their requests all night long. A little frustrating but that is for a different blog. I am just anxious to get our state back up and make Texas the real music Capitol once again.
