Tori Vasquez Saturday May 13th

Please click here to RSVP and let us know you’ll be here.

Less than a week away! This Saturday May 13th!
The weather is forecast to be ideal, with moderate temperatures and virtually no chance of rain, so we will host this concert in our spacious back yard. If you have lawn chairs, please bring them. If you don’t have lawn chairs, come anyway, and we will have a seat for you, but PLEASE RSVP to let us know you are coming.

We are so excited to host Tori Vasquez in a rare, intimate solo house concert! Most of you know Tori as the youngest daughter of Lubbock musicians Junior and Mickie Vasquez, and indeed Tori has made a name uniquely her own in the Lubbock music scene.

Having been pulled away from Lubbock by her burgeoning music career, Tori is now based out of Austin, with her husband Shannon Smith.  Although recently focusing on performing with their band The Battlin’ Nelsons, Tori is taking a one-time break from that format, instead choosing to come back to Lubbock to perform an intimate and rare solo house concert on Saturday May 13th, at Paul and Claire’s house.

Tori has chosen a set list that includes some old covers and originals that she hasn’t played in a long time, interspersed with some new songs you may not have heard her perform.

Join us for this rare opportunity to hear Tori solo in her home town, in an environment that is more close up and personal than any other.

Please click here to RSVP and let us know you’ll be here.

Location: Paul and Claire’s house (address provided when you RSVP)
When: Saturday May 13th 7:15pm
Please bring lawn chairs if you have them.  (If you don’t have lawn chairs, we will still have a seat for you.)

Tickets: $20 each at the door. (or if you prefer, you can pay in advance by credit card when you RSVP)

BYOB. Complimentary snacks will be provided.

100% of all money received will go to our guest musician.

Sarah McQuaid
Friday October 23rd

International performer Sarah McQuaid makes a rare Lubbock appearance on Friday October 23rd in an intimate HubCityMusic.com house concert.  All the way from England, Sarah has found a broad audience in the United States, and is in the midst of a nationwide CD release tour, introducing her fourth solo CD.  Entitled “Walking into White”, this newest release is receiving rave reviews.  Here are a few samples of the response this CD is receiving:

“Luminous … a soft but forceful record whose urgency is sometimes masked by the music’s acoustic serenity.” —The Boston Globe

“The more we spin this one, the better it sounds.” —BabySue

“Jaw-droppingly beautiful … tender and gorgeous.” —Invisible Ink Music Blog

We are extremely fortunate and grateful that Sarah’s schedule makes this concert possible.

Sarah’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine”. Her new album Walking Into White (2015) is her most honest and adventurous work to date, with a depth and texture of soundscape that are reflected in her beautifully crafted live shows. A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument.

You won’t want to miss her unique vocals and accompanying guitar, as well as the sound magic that accompanying sound technician Martin Stansbury brings to the room.  It will be an amazing performance!

Christopher Williams
April 24, 2014

Christopher WilliamsNashville singer/songwriter/recording artist Christopher Williams added a last-minute HubCityMusic.com house concert to his current tour, and an appreciative audience was treated to a host of new songs.  These newest songs are among the best CW has written, and has us waiting with great anticipation for a new CD!  Although no firm plans have been made for that new CD yet, it is surely highly anticipated.  In the meantime, we will post videos from this concert at the end of this entry.  It may take a week or two to get them produced, so check back every few days.

Christopher first performed in Lubbock more than 15 years ago, at Durham’s Coffee House, and since that time has gone on to become a prolific songwriter and performer, releasing a total of 11 CDs, to great fan and critical acclaim. An in-demand performer, Christopher has toured all over the U.S., opening for, and playing with noted performers such as Jars of Clay, Arlo Guthrie, Phil Keaggy, David Wilcox, Bebo Norman, and many other well-know performers.

It is an honor to have someone of CW’s stature perform in the warm, intimate environment of our HubCityMusic.com living room. Although he remains as down-to-earth and accessible as ever, Christopher is no stranger to celebrity and success.

Christopher earned accolades as the Southeast Regional Round winner for the 2011 Mountain Stage NewSong contest, and in 2010 his song “Anything But Fail” won the Independent Music Award for Best New Contemporary Christian Song, at the same time as his live CD “Something As Simple” was nominated for Best Live Recording in the Independent Music Awards.

But it is his direct connection with his audience that makes Christopher such a compelling performer. By the end of the evening, each person in the audience felt a personal connection to CW.

Here is the first of several videos we will post from this concert, a song he just finished (but started 15 years ago!) called “Know of Love”.  Beautiful!  (Watch full-screen in HD if possible, and be sure to turn the volume up.)

Here is the song that followed “Know of Love” in this concert, a song he wrote for his son called “Stone Water Wood Light”.  Watch full-screen in HD if possible, and be sure to turn the volume up.  Listen carefully for his quiet remarks after the applause.

This song is the most relaxing, reassuring song I can imagine.  Christopher’s newest, and for now his favorite, “Everything You Need”.  Relax and enjoy!

Here is a video of Christopher’s original “Good Thing” from a previous HubCityMusic.com house concert.

Jenni Dale Lord
Saturday April 20, 2013

Jenni Dale Lord brought two awesome sets of her own original music to our HubCityMusic.com house concert on Saturday April 20th!  19 original songs – 6 from the soon-to-be-recorded new release from the Jenni Dale Lord Band, along with an intimate look at the stories behind the songs.  She was accompanied by Tony Garcia and Kevin Long.  It was such an intimate evening, and you really missed something special if you weren’t here.

What a pleasure to host Jenni Dale Lord for this concert!
After rocking the ‘live music capital of the world,’ Austin, Texas, for over a decade, Jenni Dale Lord has returned to her roots in Lubbock to claim her place in the West Texas music scene where she first began her career, and she has really made a name for herself in the music world.

It has recently been revealed that one of her songs, “All Along” (from her self-titled debut CD), is under consideration by a music publishing / licensing company run by a TV music supervisor.   Every one of the songs on this CD is written by Jenni Dale, and each of these songs contains a lyrical and musical sensibility that is extraordinary.  The lyrics are tight, concise, and never forced, being at the same time credible and emotionally involving.  The music is accessible and familiar, without being derivative.  Songwriting talent like this does not go unnoticed, and when the right people notice, you will see big things happen fast for Jenni Dale Lord.

There is an element of pure country in Jenni Dale’s music, but her songwriting and performances are an amalgam of country, rock, blues, folk, and more, making her style unique and all her own.  Click the “play” arrow on each of the songs below to hear a few cuts from her debut CD “Jenni Dale Lord”. Each of these songs is completely different, and gives you an inkling of her versatility and musical range.
