Veterans from dozens of blues jam sessions and all-star backing bands, the members of Storyville -- all native Texans -- gelled at just such a jam, in 1994 at the Austin club known as Antone's. Bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton had played in Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble for ten years before the bluesman's death in 1990, and both moved on to the Arc Angels before meeting the other members of Storyville. Lead guitarist David Holt played on the Mavericks' debut album, and appeared with rhythm guitarist David Grissom in Joe Ely's backing band. Grissom had gained his early experience touring with John Mellencamp and the Allman Brothers. The only member of the band with less than ten sideman credits, vocalist Malford Milligan, sang with the Austin band Stick People before the formation of Storyville -- named, of course, in honor of New Orleans' historic red-light district.\r\n\r\nBand was together from 1994-1998, releasing 3 albums (the first 3 albums in this discog.). They parted amiably, so they still get together occasionally for a concert. The 4th album in this discog. is one of those reunion concerts recorded at Austin's premiere live music venue - Antone's, in Jan. 2006. \r\n\r\nAnd it just so happens that tonight, 9/14/10, 3 members of Storyville + the members of another band, Blue Tuesday will be playing a gig at Antone's. Only $8 in advance, $10 at the door -- after listening to these albums, I think you'll agree that this price is a steal for the opportunity to experience one of their rare appearances together.
