Live Music 
Buddy Squyres on Bass

Amarillo, Texas has had a rich tradition of live music venues featuring local, regional and well-known music artists since the town was established in 1887. This page introduces some current Amarillo live music groups and the folks who make it all happen, plus info about bands of the past. I have provided links to recorded music video samples and fan pages where available.

More information will be added as I continue to get feedback from other sources of information, including you!  If you have information to add to this page, you can use the Contact page to send me your feedback.  You may also send me info via Facebook.

For now, I am including some information based on my own research and memories along with a link to my Amarillo Live Music playlist on YouTube which features video clips of live music performances I have captured as far back as fifteen years ago.  For our Amarillo musicians, I will be available for recording current music acts as scheduling allows to help promote your work.  Please use the Contact page to send a request for a recording session and include a phone number so I can contact you back.

If you would like to keep up to date on new live music videos, please like my Dusty Reins Page on Facebook.

There are several more playlists on my Dusty Reins YouTube Channel than just the one listed below. Click the link and you will be able to find the bands you are looking for much faster. And be sure to subscribe for new music videos!
