The Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge – a unique place to dine, drink and hear some of the best music Ft. Worth has to offer. Once known as the Lion’s Club in the historic Near Southside, Bill Smith (founder and owner) has taken this 5,000 sq/ft building and transformed it into the incredible multifaceted venue you can visit today.
THE MUSIC HALL
The Live Oak’s Music Hall, “A place to listen, A place to be heard”, is a state of the art listening room with one of the most modern sound systems available. With a full service bar and it’s own craft beer selection, the Music Hall is not only a favorite of music-lovers, but of artists as well.
The Live Oak Lounge has the snug comfort, feel, and style of a 50’s era lounge that’s reminiscent of Sinatra and Cole where guests can enjoy a full bar, a 91-tap craft beer selection, and delicious, soul-soothing food.
Up above in the treetops, the award-winning Rooftop patio offers a beautiful view of the Fort Worth skyline and is a great setting for outdoor dining and events. With a full bar and full-service dining, the Rooftop caters to local and regional music enthusiasts, featuring free live music almost every night of the week.
A perfect vantage point for enjoying the lively scene that defines this entertainment neighborhood, our patios offer a variety of amenities including live events, a portable bar, and picnic-table style seating.

“Where words fail … music speaks.”
That simple line atop Elephant Revival’s Facebook page contains only five words, but reveals volumes about the band’s reason for being. Music unites us in ways that no other medium can. Even when we don’t understand one another’s languages — we can be moved by a rhythm, soothed by a song. Brought together by a unified sense of purpose — the spirit of five souls working as one, in harmony, creating sounds they could never produce alone.
The five souls in Elephant Revival are Sage Cook (banjo, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, bass and fiddle); Bridget Law (fiddle, octave fiddle); Bonnie Paine (washboard, djembe, musical saw, stompbox); Daniel Rodriguez (guitar, banjo, bass); and Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo). All share vocals and write songs. Paine delivers additional beats via footstomps on plywood, her stockinged feet doing near jigs as her hands, encased in antique leather gloves, rub silver nickel against corrugated metal.
This Nederland, Colo., quintet are, needless to say, quite a sound to be experienced — especially when they fall into the pocket of a groove containing elements of gypsy, rock, Celtic, alt-country and folk.
The Indie Acoustic Music Project simply labeled their sound “progressive edge.” At least, that’s the category in which it placed the band when it gave their Ruff Shod/Nettwerk Records release, BREAK IN THE CLOUDS, a best CD of 2011 award. It’s as good a label as any to convey what Rose has described as their mission: “to close the gap of separation between us through the eternal revelry of song and dance.”
Elephant Revival also shares a commitment to responsible stewardship of the planet and its inhabitants, working with organizations such as the Conscious Alliance, Calling All Crows, Trees Water & People, and other nonprofits supporting humanitarian causes. Their very name was chosen out of empathy for a pair of zoo pachyderms who, upon being separated after 16 years, died on the same day. The band related that heart-rending story during their April 2012 debut on fellow Coloradoans Nick & Helen Forster’s internationally syndicated “eTown” radio show — like Elephant Revival, a blend of music and social consciousness.
Sitting in the audience during their performance, one music blogger was moved to write, “Elephant Revival serenaded the crowd with arabesque melodies, harmonies and rhythms that braided and coiled into a sublime aural tapestry. Their instrumental dynamics, verse, and even the harrowing story that inspired their appellation, invoked the majesty, mystery and sorrow of Mother Earth.”
Campout for the Cause festival organizers put it this way in an affectionate shoutout on their Facebook page. “We love Elephant Revival so much,” they wrote, “not just for their incredible music and conscious lyrics, but for their commitment to living up to the standards they set forth and setting positive examples.”
It’s a paradigm worth spreading, and that’s what Elephant Revival members intend to continue doing as they carry their music around the world, speaking one song at a time.
Jazz-grass band MilkDrive features award-winning instrumentalists Brian Beken on fiddle and lead vocals, Noah Jeffries on guitar and harmony vocals, Dennis Ludiker on mandolin and harmony vocals, and Matt Mefford on double bass. But awards reveal nothing about the Austin string band’s exhilarating sound. Fueled by equal parts tradition and innovation, MilkDrive delivers a distinctive acoustic experience that crosses genres, geographies, and generations.

It’s called ‘chemistry’, an elusive quality that can be part history, part mystery and all intangible until the moment that you feel it. It’s a meant-to-be melding of the emotional and creative that can happen between songwriters, performers, best friends or life partners. For Josh and Nicole Johnson – the duo Elenowen – that connection is all of the above and much more. The chemistry they share is as rare – and real – as it gets.
Though emerging from the same Nashville-based Americana-folk scene as The Civil Wars, Elenowen deliver a sonic glow all their own. Amidst haunting harmonies and elegiac lyrics, their songs flow with an undercurrent of yearning, surrender and unexpectedly sharp edges. The sound itself is roots-driven. Even the name Elenowen is an authentic nod to heritage, with Ellen being Josh’s mom’s middle name and Owen being the middle name of Nicole’s dad. “They’re the sides of the family we each got our music from,” explains Josh. “What’s in our hearts will always come out in what we do.”
With their original songs providing the backdrop to pivotal moments on popular television shows - including NBC’s Revolution, CW’s Pretty Little Liars, Lifetime’s Army Wives, CW’s One Tree Hill, and MTV’s World of Jenks - Elenowen are discovering that the truth of what they do is bringing them new fans nationwide. In the midst of writing and recording for their upcoming album, they hit the road in the spring of 2013 on their first headlining tour, The Drifting Closer Tour, which stopped in over 20 cities nationwide. Currently, they are traveling across the country and sharing the stage with artists like singer/songwriter Matt Wertz and rock band, Green River Ordinance.
Flying Balalaika Brothers
