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.”

George Rains

George Rains played drums with Guy Parnell. He plays right-footed and left-handed because Ronnie Thayer (whose drums were set up on the Cellar bandstand) wouldn't let George move any of the drums! Nevertheless, George quickly became the best drummer in town, had the good sense to get OUT of town, and went on to play and record with San Francisco group MOTHER EARTH, and with Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs and Doug Sahm. After returning to Texas, George settled in Austin and currently plays with whom he pleases, notable among these being Austin favorites Junior Brown and Jimmy Vaughn.
