Randy Pavlock and Twenty Four Seven / Press

“Blending poker and rock & roll comes easily to Jim Paris, who owns and runs the Texas Poker Store and blogs for the Texas Poker Store Blog. Recently, he has been spending his spare time contributing to a biography of the late Buddy Miles to be released in the near future. Jim and Texas Rock and Blues Artist Randy Pavlock have announced their collaboration on a new Texas poker song to be released soon. The Texas Poker Store and the late Buddy Miles have something in common -- owner and Chief Dealer, Jim Paris produced them both. Paris has quite a rock & roll past, including producing the legendary Buddy Miles between 1976 and 1981. Recently poker and rock & roll have come together again for Paris. He not only owns and runs the Texas Poker Store and blogs for Texas Poker Store Blog.”

“Randy Pavlock and Twenty Four Seven will perform in New York City, and Norway with other legendary artists such as ZZ Top, Shamekia Copleand, Coco Montoya, Omar and The Howlers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and more..... Randy Pavlock was born one of the many brilliant guitar slingers from the heart and soul of which is now known as the Blues Capital of Texas. Navasota may be best known as the home of legendary blues artist Mance Lipscomb, but Randy Pavlock is working to add his name. Now based in Austin, Pavlock tours the country to showcase his unique brand of blues. Recently quoted by the Emergenza festival, "Randy's vocal is a reminiscent of a raspy Elvis, with buttery lows and spiritual highs." Friend Buddy Miles has recently stated as well,"You remind me of Hendrix and SRV with your own style!" The band Twenty Four Seven really captures the blues element, which comes from deep inside and does not come to just everybody.”

“Navasota’s favorite son has to be Randy Pavlock, who in times past could be found around town slicing the night air with his usual fare, Grimes blues-rock. He is a popular opener for big time rock groups these days, but if you get lucky you might catch him using an old blues trick, playing slide on his guitar with a beer bottle, out on the streets... Just like the blues legends of yore. Maybe it's because he's from my hometown. Or because he is a very likable young man. But Randy Pavlock is engaging, compelling, and his music stirs something deep. And he polishes off his arsenal of hard driving music with royal abandon. He is the young Prince of Rock. And he is our prince. I still feel his guitar when I get home after midnight, and so I enter this blog. Dang you Randy for keeping me up!”

“I'm gonna play 'til the sun shines!" (1972 -- Shaboo Inn, Willimantic, Conn.). Or how about at Antone's watching Kim Wilson front an all-star band with members who played on some of the greatest recordings ever made? Or how about seeing local Gary Clark open for Bobby "Blue" Bland at the Victory Grill? Surely we all remember blues shows that blew our hair back and made us want to go out and buy a guitar. Nothing has changed! It's all still there! Great blues records are coming out monthly, and there are many talented artists making the rounds -- some from here in Austin but many more from all over the USA. Come out and see Gary Clark, the Keller Brothers, Los Lonely Boys, or Randy Pavlock's band 24-7. These guys rock -- and play slow, and write songs that will make you dance or even cry. Isn't this what live music is about? Maybe next year SXSW will support the still-vibrant blues scene and recognize more talent from the blue planet.”

"Big Steve" Bigler - The Austin Chronicle

“Guitarist and singer Randy Pavlock hails from the official blues capital of Texas, Navasota. Whatever you think of the Texas Legislature’s having bestowed that honor without consulting any of us, Pavlock has a solid grounding in the blues. He’s done his homework on record, too, soaking up the music of everybody from Navasota icon Mance Lipscomb to Lightnin’ Hopkins, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. Pavlock has also spent a lot of time in Austin, where he found friends and mentors in two unfortunately now-departed drummers and singers, Uncle John Turner and Buddy Miles. Turner, famous for having played with Johnny Winter, played some gigs with Pavlock and showed him around the Austin scene. Miles, whose Band of Gypsys album with Hendrix had a big impact on Pavlock, joined his protégé on a cover of “Hey Joe” on Pavlock’s new CD, Miles to Go. Randy Pavlock has found his own voice and continues to grow, as both a performer and a songwriter. ”
