This coming Sunday, 4 pm, Sept. 23, Love & War in Texas will be featuring Billy Joe Shaver with The Jared Mitchell Band opening up for them. And the final Sunday afternoon show of 2018 will be on Sept. 30 and feature Stoney LaRue. Love & War is on the NE corner of U.S. 75 and Plano Parkway.

Two Tons of Steel — the very name conjures up memories of concerts past, fun in the present, and a future filled with more concerts from this San Antonio-based rockabilly band.

Kevin Geil has fronted Two Tons — “and can I hear a ‘Two Tons’?” — for more than two decades, ever since their first CD came out in 1994 and before that even. Now, Geil is joined by Rich Alcorta on drums, Jacob Marchese on doghouse bass, and Will Gage on lead guitar, and they all join in on background vocals.  And if you think the crowd is having fun, well, they are — but it’s contagious. Geil may be having more fun than anyone else.

For instance, it was fan Tony’s birthday Sunday (Sept. 16, 2018) when Two Tons took possession and mastered the Love & War in Texas stage. it wasn’t the usual “Happy Birthday” song the band played for Tony; instead, Kevin began “I Wanna Be Sedated” and ‘invited’ Tony to join in. Tony did, good sport that he is, but there was absolutely no contest who was the better singer! Geil it was by a landslide.

The Powell Brothers

The Powell Brothers, an explosive band from the Houston area, opened the Sunday afternoon concert up, and did a hot-dang good job of it, too. Taylor Powell led with his vocals and his brother, Blake Powell, took lead guitar honors. Keep your ears out for more from these guys, they will be moving up not only in charts, but in fan bases, too.
