Private Party At The Continental Club Austin, Texas

We were invited to an amazing private party held at the Continental Club in Austin. 
We decided to stay across from the club on South Congress.
We checked into the Austin Motel!

Our room was pool side. 

Inside was the cutest quirky oasis.  HA!

While the motel is 75 years old it's spotless

Loved the pink tile with turquoise

We had a 1/2 block walk to the party

Inside the club

Our adorable waitress Sarah kept the drinks flowing...

The bands started to arrive...Speedy Sparks on bass

Joe King Carrasco, The King of Tex-Mex Rock and Roll...

Derrick O'Brien the house guitarist at the famous Antone's nightclub. 

My favorite Denny Freeman  an AMAZING electric blues guitarist who's worked with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, Bob Dylan, Angela Strehli, Lou Ann Barton, James Cotton, Taj Mahal, and Percy Sledge among others.

The night ended with the - Legendary Austin Blues Musician Lou Ann Barton.  In the early 1970s, she was a member of the Triple Threat Revue, with W. C. Clark and Stevie Ray Vaughan. She was a founding member of Vaughan's band Double Trouble, and did a stint with the jump blues band Roomful of Blues. During that time, in 1975, she joined up with W. C. Clark to form his W. C. Clark Blues Revue.

In the morning we had our coffee sitting outside at jo's

Thank you, Jim Yanaway (music producer and owner of Amazing Records)
it was a legendary night we will never forget.

Darn it....back to reality....

Thanks for stopping by ~

  1. What a magical night. Most people never get to experience anything like that, lucky dogs! :) The funny thing is I've always passed the Austin Motel and thought it looked a little run down. I never expected it to be SO COOL. I want to take a stay-cation there. Thanks for sharing.
