    Tijuana Gigolos

    Doors open @ 6:30 p.m. & Show starts @ 8:00 p.m.

    Rock from Lincoln, NE

    Tijuana GigolosThe Tijuana Gigolos started playing together in 2001. The brain child of Marty Steinhausen, lead guitarist and vocals, the band took off along with Dave Robel on drums and Tony Meza on percussion and vocals. They started practicing in Marty's basement before having a name. After multiple practices and the consumption of multiple beers and shots of Patron (tequila) they came up with the name - The Tijuana Gigolos. With the addition of Jeff Boehmer on bass and occasional lead guitar and Tom Harvill on the keys, they started playing gigs. Playing almost exclusively original music, they started attracting fans. Having the advantage of living in the same town as the legendary, nationally-known Zoo Bar, they had the opportunity to open for and play with national acts such as: Billy Bacon and The Forbidden Pigs, The Hacienda Brothers, The Blazers, Los Super Vatos and many more. They released their first CD, "Do Ya' Wanna Go" in May of 2005. The band released their latest CD "Laid to Waste" on June 8th 2007. "Shotgun" 2013. For booking send us a message.

    Zac Harmon with Mike Babb

    Two Night Show!

    Doors open @ 6:30 & Show starts @ 8:00

    Blues from Mississippi and Texas

    Zac HarmonBorn and raised in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi, Zac Harmon is a true disciple of the music that emanated from the city’s historic Farish Street district, universally recognized as the home of such great blues legends like the late, great Elmore James.

    While in high school and college, Harmon gigged as a guitarist for the likes of Z.Z. Hill, Dorothy Moore and Sam Myers. Relocating to L.A. in the early eighties, he worked as a studio musician and then established himself as a writer and producer, crafting songs for the likes of the O’Jays, Whispers, Karyn White, Alexander O'Neal and Black Uhuru.

    Composing and performing music for a movie score, Harmon was compelled to pursue his longtime dream to return to his roots and record his first Blues project. The result was 2002’s Live at Babe & Ricky's Inn, an electrifying testimony to Mississippi Blues, which showcased the sound at its best and introduced Harmon as a true torchbearer for the “next generation of the Blues”. In 2004, with his then band, the Mid South Blues Revue, he won the Blues Foundation’s prestigious International Blues Challenge (IBC) title of “Best Unsigned Band".

    That release was followed by The Blues According To Zacariah, which garnered major national airplay, including XM, Sirius and the American Blues Network. XM listeners voted Harmon “Best New Blues Artist” in the inaugural XM Nation Awards in 2005. In 2006, Harmon won the Blues Music Award for “Best New Artist Debut” for The Blues According to Zacariah. Later that year, he was featured in Blues Revue magazine, as one of the 10 artists that “…represent the future of the blues”.

    2007 saw Harmon named to the Blues Foundation’s Board of Directors and entering into an endorsement deal with Category 5 Amplification. In 2008, he released Shot in the Kill Zone in Europe, recorded live at the Lionel Hampton Room in Paris. He then signed with the Northern Blues label for his third and much-anticipated U.S. album, From the Root that was released April 2009.

    Harmon also marked his acting debut in ’09 with a major role in the independent feature film Black and Blue, which is to be released in 2010. Also, in 2009, he was honored for his career achievements in his beloved hometown at the Jackson Music Awards and weeks later in Nashville, the Jus’ Blues Music Foundation bestowed the “Little Milton” Guitar Award for “Outstanding Guitar Player” upon him.

    Zac Harmon entertained U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait in 2008 as one the stars of Bluzapalooza and while headlining “The Pizza & Pyramid Tour” of Sicily, Italy and Cairo, Egypt in late 2009, Harmon and company made history with a rare performance at site of the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx, making the ensemble only the second Blues act to do so; Louis Armstrong being the first.

    More recently, Zac was featured performer for the 2010 “Mississippi Celebrates its GRAMMY® Legacy” celebration, hosted by Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, where he was presented with a Peavey Award by Peavey Electronics founder and CEO Hartley D. Peavey. The Peavey Award honors the state's many GRAMMY® winners and nominees as well as individuals who have played a significant role in developing and furthering Mississippi's musical heritage.

    Zac Harmon continues to tour internationally as an ambassador for the Blues.
