A classic two-guitar rock quartet, the South Austin Moonlighters have individually plied their trades with artists as diverse as Gatemouth Brown, Bo Diddley, Tracy Bonham, John Popper, and Lisa Loeb. Lonnie Trevino is one of Austin’s most in-demand groove providers, and he deftly anchors this varied collection of tunes with expertise, finesse, and passion. True to the creed, he mostly supports with a deep, ‟brown” Fender tone, but he bubbles up to the surface on ‟Moonlight Reprise” and asserts himself with a rocking ostinato laced with funkified fills. More of that, please!
