The Lost Gonzo Band are the musicians that pioneered the progressive country movement of the early 70s and 80s in Austin, Texas. In many cases, it was their soundtracks on the records that set Austin on a course to be known as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” They played and recorded with some of the most iconic and colorful musicians in the history of Texas Music: Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Steven Fromholz, Rusty Weir, and Ray Wylie Hubbard to name but a few. Trails were being blazed in Texas in the early 70s and the Gonzos were in the thick of it. Albums like Murphey’s Geronimo’s Cadillac and Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir and Jerry Jeff’s Viva Terlingua, Ridin’ High and It’s A Good Night For Singin’ are some of the classic albums in Gonzo’s discography. Singer-songwriters like Murphey and Jerry Jeff sought out Gonzo’s raw instinctive nature to lay down the music and vocals for their songs.
