Plaza Stage Performance: Gringo Stew from 1:00-3:00p.m.

Gringo Stew serves up authentic American music with a touch of southwestern spice. These six musicians individually honed their craft on the beer-soaked stages of Austin and San Antonio, in the smokey bar rooms and concert clubs of Cleveland, Detroit, Boston and Nashville, and in sweaty barns and dancehalls throughout the Midwest. Whether performing their unique, or reverent, renditions of lesser-known works by great American masters, or their own lively and engaging originals, the musicians in Gringo Stew insist on one critical ingredient: authenticity. Songs about real life, honest emotions (and, occasionally, alcohol consumption).

A chunky, hearty rhythm supplied by bassist Johnny "Mac" McIlwain and drummer Tom Getz; a dollop of creamy fiddle from Jim Kelly; a dash of sweet sax and some tart slide lap steel by Randy Solomon; an infusion of Michael Rendon's savory Texas vocals; topped off with the "5-alarm" smoking guitar of Frank Scialdone; and garnished with spicy harmonies: that's the Gringo Stew recipe!
