HYATT REGENCY LOST PINES RESORT AND SPA EXPANDS “LIVE AT LOST PINES” MUSIC PROGRAM FOR 2014
AUSTIN/BASTROP, TEXAS (Jan. 22, 2014) – The new year is bringing new depth to the Live at Lost Pines Music program at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa. Starting Wednesday, January 22, the Texas resort is offering complimentary music nearly every night of the week, with additional shows designed to supplement the longstanding weekend schedule of live music in Shellers Barrelhouse Bar.
The newly updated Live at Lost Pines program stretches music across the week to showcase singer/songwriters from the Austin and Bastrop area, including Grammy greats and Texas favorites such as Wendy Colonna, Redd Volkaert, Bob Livingston, Bill Kirchen, Dallas Wayne, Owen Temple and many others. Featured genres include a winsome blend of Texas and American sounds, from blues and swing to jazz and traditional country.
The complimentary performances are open to the public and can be enjoyed by resort guests, locals as well as travelers passing through the Lost Pines Region. Click here for the latest Live at Lost Pines music schedule.
Located between historic Bastrop and “The Live Music Capital of the World” (Austin), Hyatt Lost Pines has honored the tradition of Texas music since opening its doors in June 2006. On the experiential side, the resort has always sprinkled live music throughout its annual calendar with performances to enhance meetings, charity happenings, holidays and special events, as well as regular shows from live bands on Friday and Saturday nights in Shellers.
Additionally, the interior of Shellers reflects the rich musical history of Texas, as does one of its signature cocktail drinks. The Grey Ghost Martini was named for Roosevelt Thomas Williams, a Texas music pioneer who rode the freights all over the Southwest to give piano performances. His sudden appearances and disappearances earned him the nickname, “The Grey Ghost.” The drink of the same name features Grey Goose vodka and Hpnotiq (a blend of vodka, cognac and exotic fruit juices), creating a spooky-looking beverage with a tropical flavor.
The resort’s decorative style was also musically inspired. Throughout its gathering spaces and corridors, Hyatt Lost Pines features artwork, photographs and written histories such that guests and visitors can learn about Texas icons and emerging artists alike during their stay. Among the spotlighted greats: Tex Ritter, Bob Wills, George Jones, Ray Price, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin, Willie Nelson, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Muddy Waters, Ray Benson, Pat Green, Steven Fromholz, Doug Sahm, Nancy Griffith, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Marcia Ball, Guy Clark, Billie Joe Shaver, Cindy Walker, Tish Hinojosa – and that just scratches the surface.
Several guest suites are also named after Texas musical genres and moments, including Small Towns-Big Sounds, Tejano Traditions, Lone Star Outlaws, Dance Halls & Last Calls and Texas Rock ’n’ Roll. Each suite features photos and other memorabilia from those periods – eras whose rhythms, harmonies and melodies have created an ever-growing, ever-evolving soundtrack for the state, region and ultimately the destination that is Hyatt Lost Pines.
