The Esquire Tavern

to celebrate the end of Prohibition 
and has been a beloved San Antonio 
watering hole ever since, with a 
short hiatus from 2006 to 2011. 
The Esquire is back as the quintessential downtown bar:  
dark, cool, redolent with history,
and serving cold, cold beer, swanky cocktails, and excellent food.

Classic Augie Meyers Song Unearthed in Trace Relations Debut Single

“Sittin’ on the corner of Prosperity Street, wonderin’ where my next meal’s coming from, Yesterday I was rakin’ in the coin, today I’m just a poor old bum.” – Augie Meyers, from “Prosperity Street”

A lyric so timely for the economic conditions of 2011, who would guess it was written in 1975?

Happy Birthday to Texas Tornado Augie Meyers

Wishing the great Augie Meyers a very happy birthday, today May 31, 2011.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Augie since I was fifteen years old (a long time ago…). He’s been a good friend and constant source of inspiration and motivation for me in music. Now, on his birthday (I won’t say which one), with Augie doing well after a kidney transplant last year and a tour with the Texas Tornados in the works, I give you this post; my thanks to legendary Texas musician: Augie Meyers.

Happy Birthday to Augie


Who’s Augie? Performer, songwriter, keyboardist, accordionist, vocalist most notably with Sir Douglas Quintet, Texas Tornados and as a side man to Bob Dylan, John Hammond, Jr. and many more… See Augie Meyers on tour this summer with Texas Tornados
