1996-97 Austin Music Awards
Alejandro Escovedo accepts his awards for Singer-Songwriter and Hall of Fame as KGSR deejays Bryan Beck (l) and Kevin Connor (r) applaud.
Winners of the 1996-97 Austin Music Awards were published last week.
The Texas Tornados treated audiences to special guest Roy Head.
Jimmie Vaughan and Lou Ann Barton paid a little homage to emcee Paul Ray when they opened with "Twine Time."
Charlie and Will Sexton -- another kind of family style.
Beavis and Butt-head creator Mike Judge (l) really is King of the Hill, as he demonstrated with comedian Johnny Hardwick (who does the voice of KOTH's Dale).
Street busker Gerry Van King, "The King of Sixth Street," has become a regular at the Awards show.
Same as it ever was... Maybe King Coffey is wondering where the rest of the Butthole Surfers are. He can't possibly be questioning their wins for Best Video and Single of the Year!
Best Jazz Band 8-1/2 Souvenirs (with Best Keyboard player Glover Gill) opened the evening with style and panache.
