A new way to help our Austin-based musicians continue to make their living through their art! Here you'll meet working musicians who live in Austin, selling works of art that they have created themselves, and keeping 100% of their sales. The producers are donating their time, the venue is donating the space and the artists are not charged to participate. We're doing this to support our Austin musicians! Please join us!

Happy spring to the best client base in the planet! Just thought I would give you a short update...Christy Chavez is on her way to LA. Her husband got transferred and he will soon start work on a team working on LAX. We will sorely miss our Christy girl!!...Jesus Orosco joined our team at SXSW time. He is a super barber and a really nice guy and does a really great job with all hair types and styles! ...Russell Firestone started with us in January. Again a super nice guy and very meticulous barber! ...Of course, I am so greatful to the core team of Bri Bielz, Parker James, Ryan Vidotto, (and me) for holding down the fort so well during the transitions. We have a truly special team. ...One more thing, the BarBar is moving along and we are planning the opening festivities. Will keep you posted:)

I apologize for any confusion resulting from our price change. I realized that there were still a couple of places the old price was reflected when services were combined. Hopefully I have found them all and corrected them. If you see something that is not listed correctly, please let me know....Thanks, Debbie
