This is our 3rd visit here and each time has been very fun. A great listening venue with rotating original art on the walls with truly delicious food & drink.
Many of the most familiar names in Texas music perform at Rockin' Box and we're really pleased to be asked to perform here. Looks like this is a creative oasis in West Texas.
We'll be playing indoors this night but last time here (playing outdoors) there was a great crowd , great fun, and the BBQ ain't bad either.

“Strolling Scones are Rick Stockton (guitars, banjo, vocals) and Helen Highwater (bass, vocals). Based in Colorado, the duo are former Hill Country denizens. Back in the day, before the Americana genre had a name, they took a fusion of rock 'n' roll, folk, country and more to the live music venues of South Alamo Street and all across Texas. They were regulars at Gruene Hall. At 5 p.m. Sunday, the Strolling Scones, Stockton, Highwater and drummer Harry Knipe, will return to Gruene Hall to celebrate the release of a new CD, “Like Ripples Across the Pond.” With guests including John Magnie (accordion), Strolling Scones have crafted a collection of smart songs, rock 'n' Americana for grown-ups. Stockton is a top-flight songwriter as proven by “Wishing Well” and “Crazy ‘Bout That Girl.” The music ranges from basic rock 'n' roll to bossa nova-style to blues-influenced. It's all cool and it all works. It'll be good to have Strolling Scones back in Texas for a while.”
