April Java Jam

Next Java Jam, Friday, April 22, 6-9 pm, Milam Street Coffee, on the Square, Wharton, Tx.
Remember the River Ramblers? This was a group of seasoned musicians that played a wide swath of land either side of the Colorado River. Elements of that kind of talent have resurfaced in a group of five, some of whom play multiple instruments to add a unique flare to the performance. The band plays home grown originals, classic country favorites, popular Texas country songs, as well as newer pop country tunes.
Michael Kelly and the City Limits Band was started in Wharton, Tx in a small dorm room at Wharton County Junior College. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Michael Buentello (aka Kelly), wrote the first originals "Already gone" and "My Texas Girl" while passing time between classes. Michael gets his inspiration from experiences in his own life as well as experiences and hardships the people around him have endured. His goal is to spark an emotion in his listeners that brings them back to a memory they have experienced, a dream they want to reach, or maybe just make living in the moment fun.
Now, a few years after writing his first song, Michael has put together a band of skilled river ramblers to make his music come alive. Fans of the Java Jam Band will recognize John Pursel, lead guitar, Rick Quijas, Bass and Ron Sanders, drums, as well as popular Java Jam guest guitarist Johnny Flores. Their dedication to this project have made what Michael Kelly and the City Limits Band is today, a pure listening pleasure and Texas to the bone. Bring a covered dish with a little extra to spare and $15 per person cover charge (kids free) to enjoy Wharton’s most unique dining/live music venue. OK to bring your own wine.
