The TBC House Band from Austin & KC’s on the Creek inTurtle Cove

The TBC House Band and KC’s on the Creek inTurtle Cove
Serendipity: The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
Saturday, Sep. 10, 2011


Jen: Hey, let’s go by KC’s on the Creek. I’ve never been and I want to see it – Andrew Farmer and some of his friends are playing there tonight and I want to photograph it for the blog while it’s empty.
George: Yes, dear…anything you say, dear.
Jen to readers: if only he’d say that…just once!
After several moments of patiently and lovingly enduring George’s grumbling about going with me to take some pics and missing out on serious Saturday potato couching opportunities – we pulled into KC’s on the Creek. Confession: I’d heard about KC’s and for reasons that escape me now, I’d pictured it as a small Gilligan’s Island type hut barely big enough to hold the entire crew of the SS Minnow.
Boy was I in for a surprise!
Walking to the front door…

Loving the view of the beautiful, cloudless sky and digging the groovy surfboard sign…
George takes me ’round to the side to see the creek (Oyster Creek)…
As I rounded the corner to peek inside, I was thinking how heavenly it must be here at night under the stars …when I opened the door and – SURPRISE –  hardly Gilligan’s hut!
Bar detail…
Fun stuff everywhere
Two bars…
Big Gameroom…
And cool/comfy/breezey patio ON the creek!
KC’s was full of pleasant surprises. I didn’t know it at the time, but the best was still yet to come…
George and I arrived late that night (his potato couching lasted longer than usual!) and this is  the scene we walked into…..

Serendipity: KC’s on the Creek and The TBC House Band – a great combination for a celebration. We Brazos folk like to let our hair down and we love places that let us and we adore bands that make us lose control!
The TBC House Band from Austin was there for Andrew Farmer’s birthday -this was one hell of a party! Everyone I spoke with was super-enthusiastic about TBC and rightfully so: fresh, FUN, original, eclectic…what’s not to love?! I knew I wanted to get TBC down here again – ASAP – so all my friends could get to know them and we’d be able to hear them more often!
The TBC House Band will be playing in the loft at Belle’s Landing on Saturday, Nov. 5th. I can’t wait for everyone to hear them - I am SO excited about the prospect of them playing more often in our area! Special thanks to Marlene at Belle’s Landing for being so cool! See you soon :-)

I cannot be held responsible for the actions of others while I happen to have a video camera in my hand. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!
