If you want only the finest purveyors of the blues in South Texas, look no further!  We have moved the Blues Jam Session to Simon Sez, Wednesday Nights!

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Blues at Cypress Lounge


I am pleased to update the local South Texas Blues Scene with news that Johnny Harper’s HardTimes Blues Band has returned to the stage at one of McAllen’s most loved venue, The Cypress Lounge.

While I continue to perform with The Leigh Holles Band – every other week at The Bayou Grill (McAllen) – our roots are deeply embedded with The HardTimes. It’s an institution that purveys only the finest Blues and it’s a blessing/honor/privilege to be part of that fine group of musicians.

I invite all of our friends, both old and new, to come out to Cypress Lounge on Wednesday nights to hang out with us and enjoy a night of South Texas Blues! At the risk of sounding like a commercial – Cypress offers a great place to sit back and enjoy some cold beers with friends – they even have a Bring Your Own Bottle service.

I’ll eventually post a flier that you can pass on to friends, family, and also post on your online networks. Either way, come by Wednesdays – we’ll have fun!
