The Sound of the City
Celebrating the release of 'Austin Music Vol. 10'
DAILY Music  February 23, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...Pressed for the first time on vinyl (how progressive is that?!), Volume 10 could pass as a sampler of last year's Austin Music Awards, featuring contributions from Sahara Smith, Bright Light Social Hour, the Marshall Ford Swing Band, and Mother Falcon. Even more impressive is the nabbing of Afrobeat combo Ocote Soul Sounds and our rarest export, Bill Callahan (view full tracklist below)...."

Three for the Road
Dream team scions Warren Hood and Emily Gimble add up 58 years of Austin roots
Music Story  July 12, 2013, by Margaret Moser
"...Sure enough, he's sporting a shiny band of gold on his right hand, but that's not all he's happy about. His new Charlie Sexton-produced CD, The Warren Hood Band, hit streets the week he got hitched, so it naturally took a backseat to the nuptials..."

Country Mile
Country mile
Music Review  April 9, 2010, by Margaret Moser
"...The Flatcar Rattlers know their end of the road well, having turned somewhere near the intersection of the Gourds and Bad Livers. The band's latest, Which Side Are You On?, boasts killer artwork and unadorned love for punk-inspired bluegrass in 14 tracks ("The Day Ol' Avery Died," "Cannon Fodder")..."

Ghosts Along the Brazos
Music Review  February 14, 2014, by Jim Caligiuri

New Farm Debuts at Travaasa with BBQ Bash
Guests enjoy beer and barbecue in pastoral setting
DAILY Food  June 20, 2013, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Last week, Travaasa introduced the new farm property to resort guests who ponied up $100 each (and a few media folks, who did not) to chow down on award-winning Central Texas barbecue and local craft beers to the sounds of the Marshall Ford Swing Band. A portion of the event proceeds benefit Foodways Texas, a non-profit culinary cultural organization, and they were responsible for inviting the stellar line-up of barbecue vendors..."

"...Hahn, 40, formed Hawaiian punk outfit Cringer in 1984, which, upon relocation to the Bay Area in the early Nineties, evolved into J Church. In 2000, Hahn re-envisioned the melodic punk band in Austin with drummer Chris Pfeffer and bassist Ben White, releasing three albums and a handful of 7-inches..."

It's Time for Wine and Swine
Annual cook-off raises grant money with porkiliciousness
DAILY Food  November 19, 2014, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Popular for weddings, family reunions, and corporate retreats, the Star Hill compound is made up of carefully restored historic buildings arranged to create the atmosphere of a bucolic Hill Country town. The Marshall Ford Swing Band will play and the manicured grounds will be bustling with whole hog roasting pits, food serving stations, the Bubbles Saloon where guests can enjoy pork-friendly sparkling wines, and a rodeo-like arena where folks can test their skill riding Harley, the mechanical hog...."

Half Time Mix
The best of 2010 (so far)
DAILY Music  July 7, 2010, by Jim Caligiuri
"...There are a couple of new discoveries, too: Check out locals Austin Collins and Wendy Colonna. Tracks from Adam Carroll & Michael O’Connor, Sara Hickman, Black Prairie, the Marshall Ford Swing Band, and the Shel Silverstein tribute didn’t fit this time, but they’re well worth looking for..."

Why Not Note Current 'Viper' Bands?
Postmarks  June 7, 2007
"...Dear Editor, Hi there! I really enjoyed Margaret Moser's piece on viper music [“If You're a Viper,” Music, May 25] and all its variations throughout the years (from the Thirties and beyond). But, I'm absolutely mystified as to how you can write so much on that subject (three pages, or was it four?) with not one mention of the bands currently playing around town who include viper music in their sets or even those who specialize in that genre! What's up with that? I would think it would be a no-brainer to include them in the article, or at the very least to include some kind of sidebar listing, so people could go check out this fun/danceable music! Some of the bands that fall into this category are: the Jitterbug Vipers, White Ghost Shivers, Asylum Street Spankers, and, to a lesser extent, Marshall Ford Swing Band, the Phoebe Jeebies, and I am sure there are others that I haven't heard but would like to!..."

1999 SXSW Music Festival
Music Story  March 18, 1999
"...Jagged, unfailingly rhythmic, Daniel's short bursts of pop brilliance just killed, and if you've ever seen Spoon at the Hole in the Wall, you knew this was status quo. Unlike so many "modern rock" bands, Spoon delivers the goods live, and last year's dynamic A Series of Sneaks (Elektra) proved they've got goods to give..."

ACL Music Fest Preview
Music Story  September 15, 2006
"...With the recent release of their first album in more than a decade, Conga Dog, Robert "Beto" Skiles and his entourage step back into the limelight. For more than 30 years, they've been one of Austin's favorite party bands with their infectious, horn-driven blend of salsa, Latin jazz, and Afro-Cuban dance sounds..."

Redd Light Special
One right fine Tele-pickin' dude
Music Story  November 10, 2000, by Jerry Renshaw
"...By the time he was 16, he was well on the way to playing in every Moose, Elks, Legion, VFW, nightclub, and beer joint in the area. In time, he found greener pastures in Alberta, playing in a three-piece band and making a living with the instrument until moving to Southern California in 1986...."

SXSW Picks & Sleepers
Picks & Sleepers
Music Story  March 15, 2002
"...RED DYE #4, THE DISOWNED, THE SNOBS, FORTY SECOND SCANDAL: Over the next few years, look for the teenagers in these local bands to start grabbing headline slots and press attention. Way too young to drink, their hearts pound with Ramones-like lust and they reference Austin legends like the Big Boys and Butthole Surfers..."
