Austin Allsup Album in the works 

I have spent the last few weeks working on a new Austin Allsup (untitled as of now) CD at Bart Rose's Fort Worth Sound in, you guessed it, Fort Worth!  This is an awesome room and Bart really knows his stuff.  I highly recommend this studio! Also in the studio is Ruben Salazar and Clay Willis, two of the finest players around. The CD should be a nice mix of Texas/Red Dirt country with a few rockers thrown in the mix.  I especially like "Rock and Roll Man" (maybe a single?!).  The record should be done and out to radio sometime in the Fall so be listening to the radio or better yet, come out to a show!

Bass Drum? 

Here's a shot of my "bass drum" at The Rustic in Dallas the other day.  Sometimes you gotta improvise!  It actually sounded great through the giant PA system.

New Chuck Ligon CD in the works 

Once again, Jeff is busy in the studio producing a new Chuck Ligon CD.  The as of yet untitled CD will be ready for a fall release. The CD will feature 9 new Chuck Ligon songs and one surprise cover song, sure to be a crowd pleaser!  In addition to producing the CD, Jeff also plays drums on 1 song.  The CD is being produced at various studios in the Dallas area, most notably at Tomcast Studio with Paul Williams engineering.  Chuck's previous release, Come and Take it (2013) did very well and made it to the Texas music Chart!  Check out Chuck's homepage for the latest release info. 

Jeff to reunite with Sax Legend Johnny Reno! 

Jeff is set to play a string of dates in October with legendary Fort Worth Sax man Johnny Reno.  Jeff has not played with Mr. Reno in many years and the shows should prove to be exciting.  The pair will be playing in Fort Worth at the Scat Lounge in Downtown every Thursday in October.  Come by and see the sparks fly!

Jeff Howe moving on 

After almost 12 long and exciting years playing drums for Max Stalling, I am moving on to explore some other musical options, focus more on teaching drum lessons, and spend a weekend or two with my family.  Working for Max has been a highlight in my career and I'll miss him and the boys a ton.  A personal thanks to Max's fans for their loyalty and kindness they've shown me though the years.  I know Max and the band will continue to do great things in the future and I wish them all the luck in the world.
