Johnny Nicholas and the Texas All Stars featuring Cindy Cashdollar, Scrappy Jud Newcomb and John ‘Morocco’ Chipman
Johnny Nicholas has spent a lifetime soaking up the flavor of such vibrant music scenes as Chicago, Southwest Louisiana and Texas (which he’s called home now for 40 plus years). His music is full-spectrum Americana — a rich gumbo of blues, cajun, swing, and barrelhouse rock ’n’ roll. He is a consummate songwriter, as well as a gifted vocalist and multi instrumentalist.
His collaborations with musical soulmate and longtime friend Cindy Cashdollar are not to be missed. Cindy and Johnny both served time (though not at the same time) with Texas’ premier western swing band, the legendary Asleep at the Wheel.
Cindy is one of the all time great steel guitar players who, in addition to her well known associations with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Rod Stewart and many others, has won multiple awards and recognitions including several Grammys. Her Slide Show album is a masterpiece which showcases her prowess both on her instrumental numbers as well as in the company of Johnny, Marcia Ball, Sonny Landreth and other musical luminaries.
The addition of co-conspirator Scrappy Jud Newcomb is the icing on this already delectable musical cake. Scrappy is arguably the best guitarist and accompanist in Austin today and his mandolin playing is stunning and soulful. He has an Austin musical pedigree second to none. His long time stint with Rock and Roll hall of famer Ian McLagen being but one of the many musical affiliations of note on his resume.
John ‘Morocco’ Chipman is another Austin musical stalwart. He was a founding member of the Band of Heathens and he has toured with Ruthie Foster, Stephen Bruton, Delbert McClinton and Marcia Ball just to name a few.
The four of them worked together in Johnny’s band Hell Bent for seven years before Cindy moved back to Woodstock recently. Join this group of gifted Americana music greats for an unforgettable night of great stories and music guaranteed to keep your toes tapping and the dance floor packed.
