Description

Join us for a casual evening of great music featuring Bob Livingston!! All profits from this event will benefit Rescued Pets Movement. Dinner, dessert, water & tea are included in your ticket price and all guests are welcome to BYOB!

Singer-songwriter BOB LIVINGSTON has never been a traditional Texas country musician living the honky-tonk life even though he's spent more than his share of time on the roadhouse circuit with some of the most colorful and rambunctious musicians in Texas. As a member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band, Livingston toured and recorded with such musical visionaries as Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Martin Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard and many more. Livingston played an integral role in helping to create the music that first earned Austin the designation of “Live Music Capital of the World” and helps explain why he was recently inducted in to “Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame” in 2016.

Livingston has seen a lot of the world since growing up in musically fertile West Texas. Hailing originally from San Antonio, he moved to Lubbock as a boy where his interests turned more 'Cosmic' than 'Cowboy' and prompted him to delve into the music and mysteries of many cultures. Traveling since the 80’s as a Music Ambassador for the US State Department, Livingston has taken Texas music as far afield as India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Africa, Vietnam and the Middle East demonstrating again and again the unique power that music has to build bridges between peoples of the world. As Livingston says, 'When all else fails, music prevails'. These tours earned him the honor of being appointed, “Ambassador of Goodwill,” by the State of Texas and “Austin’s International Music Ambassador,” by the City of Austin.

This world-traveled view was reflected in Livingston's 2004 CD, Mahatma Gandhi & Sitting Bull, a romp through juxtapositions of east and west. His last CD, Gypsy Alibi, defines a new musical direction. Released in 2011 on New Wilderness Records, 'Gypsy Alibi' won "Album of the Year" at the Texas Music Awards 2011.

These days, Livingston is a busy man. While playing over 180 shows a year, he is also managing to write a memoire for Texas Tech Press, play with a multi-cultural band from Texas and India called Cowboys & Indians and is in the final mix on a new album on Howlin’ Dog Records called, Up The Flatland Stairs to be released this Spring 2017.

In a live performance with Bob Livingston, one finds a veteran singer-songwriter and a master storyteller who captures his audience from the first notes played. It's an irresistible invitation to travel down the cosmic musical highways and rutted back country roads where his rambles have taken him over the years. “What country? That’s the question.”

Rescued Pets Movement Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides a second chance for thousands of homeless dogs and cats through rehabilitation and transport to forever homes in communities throughout the country and Canada that have a demand for adoptable pets.

Thousands of dogs and cats are needlessly euthanized in the Greater Houston area each year simply because of pet overpopulation. After working with various rescue groups for many years, the founders of Rescued Pets Movement realized that the best way to save these dogs and cats is to build solid relationships with reputable rescue groups here and in areas of the United States where there is a need for adoptable pets and transport the animals to these organizations using our own vans and drivers. The dogs and cats we save from BARC (Houston’s City Pound) are fully examined and treated by our partner veterinarians and placed in foster homes with our volunteers until they are ready for transport.

Since starting operations in late 2013, Rescued Pets Movement has saved the lives of over 22,000 homeless companion animals by rescuing them from BARC and transporting them to permanent homes.

Every week that number grows!
