Blue Monday Free Happy Hour With Derek O'Brien

Derek “Big House” O’Brien is a Texas-style blues guitarist, sometime bassist and record producer based in Austin, TX.

A stalwart of the house band at the famous Austin blues club Antone’s Nightclub, O’Brien is most often found backing up other Austin frontmen, including Delbert McClinton, Lou Ann Barton, The Texas Tornados and almost anyone recording on the Antone’s Records label.

O’Brien has also backed up major blues names such as Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters. Ted Drozdowski, writing on Gibson Guitars’ website, says, “O’Brien has a terse, arrow-sharp and spare style comparable to Jimmie Vaughan’s – light on flash, but soooo right. Check it out.”

Tommy Taylor

Drummer supreme. Gold albums with Christopher Cross and Eric Johnson. Lots and lots of studio and live work with Mark Hallman, Will Sexton, Charlie Sexton, David Holt, Kris McKay, Mandy Mercier, Chris Holzhaus, Lance Keltner, Austin All Stars, Bruce Robison, Charlie Robison, Sarah Hickman, Eliza Gylkison, Jake Andrew. Pretty long list of excellence...

Mike Flanigin

Mike Flanigin is a masterful player of the Hammond B3 Organ, an instrument that went out of production in 1974. However, in his hands, it sounds more alive than ever. Deep funk, thick chords and powerful basslines propel his sound into the modern age...twisting jazz, soul, and rhythm & blues into a sound all his own.

A musician’s musician...he’s impressed greats from all genres of music...Eric Clapton, Norah Jones, Jimmie Vaughan, David Byrne, Ryan Adams, Al Kooper, Bill Frisell, Madeleine Peyroux, James Burton and Larry Goldings have all sang his praises after hearing him perform.
