What's in a name? In this case, an impressive history of performing experience, balanced with creativity and expertise in playing a broad spectrum of Texas music styles. The Grateful Geezers were formed to utilize their combined experience and unique abilities to render faithful renditions of blues, R&B, Rock and Jazz tunes that we all love. The difference with the Geezers is that we have all made a living playing this music in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's.
