Rubys Jazz Garage

It all began in the heart of the live music capital of the world.

At an art show presented by the swanky Creekside Lounge Bar in downtown Austin, Ruby's Jazz Garage had its first performance without even knowing it. The band was assembled solely out of the knowledge that all were jazz musicians and loved to play live. No name was chosen for the show. No one knew what they were getting into.

The gig was an explosive success, and it was evident there was a chemistry flowing among the trio. Hence, a band was born, and within it was forged a new genre out of the jazz and garage clay. Jazz = intricate structures, crazy improv, beautiful songs. Garage = madness, fearless noise, in your face rockin' rhythm. Ruby= color, a gemstone. Together you get Ruby's Jazz Garage.
