His songs have been recorded by Jack Ingram, Kristen Garner, Domestic Science Club, Monte Warden, Sara Hickman, and Barney the Dinosaur.

Southlake – Velvet Love Box

Velvet Love Box features three veteran musicians from the North Texas area: percussionist/vocalist Brandon Bumpas, guitarist/vocalist Scot Cloud, and vocalist/bassist Neil Schnell. The band formed at Bronco’s Sports Bar in 1997, where they still perform every Thursday night, and over the past fifteen years they have continued to blur the line between “cover” and “original”, creating a niche for themselves. In early 2002 VLB recorded their first EP, “Pilot,” for Texas indie label Aaron Ave. Records. In 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008 Velvet Love Box was voted Best Cover Band by the readers of Fort Worth Weekly!

From her early days as a Gospel singer to her legendary status as a Texas Diva, Maylee Thomas transcends genres, mixing Gospel-based blues with soul driven rock, touches of pop, with the very faintest caresses of country from time to time… and audiences respond. Maylee is the soul of Texas and a must see act.

If you’re looking for a relaxing weekend kick-off place, join us for Maylee’s return. We will be serving up hot, rustic thin-crust pizza and cold drafts to go with Maylee’s fantastic sound.
