Banks, and a talent scout who discovered country singers Don Walser, Kimmie Rhodes and Wayne "the Train" Hancock.

Tony Campise (1943 - March 7, 2010) was a American jazz musician. He played saxophone and flute.

Tony Campise was a native of Houston, Texas. Campise settled to Austin, Texas in 1984 after several years on the road with the Stan Kenton Orchestra (Fire, Fury & Run, 1975). He performed in the jazz clubs on 6th Street, and also backed artists such as Frank Sinatra and Sarah Vaughan. He recorded five albums in the 1990s; his 1991 album Once In a Blue Moon was nominated for a Grammy. Campise died after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He had never fully recovered from an October 2009 fall, when he hit the back of his head.

Formed Uncle Walt's Band. Both gone way too early. Uncle Walt's Band was there at the beginning of the Austin music scene, and they were in the thick of things early on. A Townsend Miller column dated November 17, 1973 notes: www.larrymonroe.com/writings/writings02.html

December 18, 1949 - February 1, 1989 Blaze Foley was born Michael David Fuller in Malvern, Arkansas but he grew up in Texas. He performed in a gospel band called The Fuller Family with his mother and sisters. After leaving home, he performed in Atlanta, Chicago, Houston and finally Austin, Texas, where even in this city of non-conformists his unusual character was noticed. He slept on friend's couches or under pool-tables in bars. He made the Austin Outhouse his home. He was close friends with another Texas legend, Townes Van Zandt.

His song "If I Could Only Fly" became a hit in the interpretation of Merle Haggard. His song "Election Day" was covered by Lyle Lovett on his 2003 album "My Baby Don't Tolerate" and his song "Clay Pigeons" was covered by John Prine on his Grammy Award winning 2005 album "Fair and Square." Joe Nichols pays tribute to "If I Could Only Fly" by recording it for his album "Real Things" released in 2007. Read more here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blaze_Foley

Austin Adams - Erik Hokkanen could tell you about Austin Adams, as well as Larry Monroe. All I knew of him is he hired me to photograph Eric & the Offbeats debut album. I liked his music too.
