"...A decade ago, Zach Ernst sat quietly in the back of a classroom at the University of Texas, watching Clifford Antone preach the blues to eager underclassmen. It was a side gig for Austin's most respected club owner, then 30 years into operating his namesake blues venue, and a logical extension of his life's work: turning people on to the blues..."

Bobby Patterson
Soul Patch
