Thanks for checking out the 250th episode of the ETX Rocks Show! Today we have two incredible guests, each with their own outstanding career achievements, but to interview them separately would do their stories injustice.

Our first guest has played on stages across the US as well as Europe, Asia,  Africa and more, even taking the time to entertain deployed military personnel. In addition, he has landed acting and stunt roles in films, including a couple with Kenny Rogers and Jeff Bridges. Folks , I'm pleased to introduce you to David Allen! This man also wears many other hats, such as concert producer, bounty hunter, and manager for Leslie Satcher and the Electric Honey Badgers.

Speaking of Leslie Satcher, I couldn't possibly say enough in the time I have today.  She has written numerous hits such as “Troubadour” for George Strait and “When God fearing women get the blues “ for Martina McBride, as well as songs and co-writes for artists such as Willie Nelson,  Vince Gill, Cheryl Crow, Bonnie Rait and Ariana Grande. As well as a distinguished writer, Leslie Satcher has a voice that pulls at your heartstrings and is a very successful performer in her own right. Between songwriting workshops, sold-out live performances at places such as Joe Pub in New York  and the Bluebird Cafe and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and numerous charity events, Leslie Satcher’s accomplishments are only continuing to grow. It is such an honor to introduce Leslie Satcher!

Purchase Leslie's critically acclaimed new album "Two Days in Muscle Shoals" here: https://itunes.apple.com/mz/album/2-days-in-muscle-shoals/1353021646

Thanks for checking out the 249th episode of the ETX Rocks Show! From early childhood, Jade Marie Patek was fascinated with music, a major reason being the influence of her grandfather Joe Patek,whose polka band sold a million albums. This Texas Regional Radio Music Award nominee for 2017 Female Vocalist of the Year has developed a style of music that's part Americana, part soul, and all her own. Her most recent single, “Drive,” earned a nomination for Texas Music Picker’s Song of the Year. From Round Rock, Texas, Jade Marie Patek!

(Courtesy of https://jademariemusic.com/)

Jade Marie Patek comes from a rich musical lineage as the granddaughter of polka legend, Joe Patek, who delighted crowds at dancehalls for decades with his Orchestra. Using her polka roots as inspiration, Jade began writing her own music and performing it live a few years back.  Her original music is purely Texan and definitely original.  The songs are fueled by life experiences, life lessons and a whole lot of heart and soul.
