    Well done, Jake. I know that band. Linda and I lived in New Braunfels from 2005-2010 (just outside of San Antonio). I played in a community band that played every year for the New Braunfels Wurstfest. This band was a headliner band every year, and I think still is. Alex is an incredible musician and a real personality.

    How did you happen to hook up with him? Good for you and I really enjoyed it.
