Hill Country & F.A.M Present

This show will have seating and standing room. All sales are final. No refunds.

As you may be aware, the city of Washington D.C. has recently reinforced a mandatory mask mandate for all restaurants.  Hill Country has been at the forefront of providing a safe environment for our guests to enjoy some great BBQ and good times.  Our guests are like family to us and we are practicing the same preventive measures in our restaurant as we would in our own home under CDC guidelines.  The health of our family, guests, employees and community are our top priority. Due to the new updates on COVID-19, we will be strictly enforcing that masks are being worn when not eating or drinking in the Dining Room or Bar.  The crowd will be be separated 6ft back from the stage .  When just hanging out and dancing, masks should be worn!   In addition, we will continue to be:

  • Using wrapped utensils 

  • Having hand sanitizer placed through out the bar and restaurant

  • Using disposable cups for all drinks

  • Limiting entrance capacity/ sales of tickets to keep from over crowding

 

 

JASON RICCI

 

Jason Ricci is one of the best and most imitated blues harmonica players of the 21st century. He picked up the instrument as a teenager when he started playing in a punk rock band. His journey started in earnest when he watched and later was mentored by legendary harmonica player Pat Ramsey in Memphis. As Ricci gigged and grew as a player he found work and support from the southern blues community. He lived and played with Junior and David Kimbrough in Mississippi and then worked as a sideman with Big Al and The Heavyweights for more than a year. In the late 90s, he formed Jason Ricci and New Blood, a band that toured around the world for more than a decade and released critically praised albums like Done With The Devil and Rocket Number 9. Riccis latest chapter is the New Orleans band Jason Ricci and The Bad Kind, a band influenced by the sounds of New Orleans and artists like The Meters and Doctor John.  What defines Jason Ricci as an artist is the fearlessness with which he approaches his instrument and music and transmutes the hardships we all face into unforgettable music. 

 

Bobby Thompson & Jenny Langer

2 multi-Wammie award winning blues artists + mutual love of the Capricorn Records Label collection of songs = 1 killer acoustic duo.
 

"The collaboration between these two artists is musical bliss."

- Mark Segraves, NBC Washington


For over a decade, Bobby Thompson (Blue Heart Revival, Bobby Thompson Project) and Jenny Langer (Moonshine Society) were admirers of each other's musical work as well known blues artists. Finally in 2021, the duo got together for fun to do a single live-streamed tribute performance to the music of Delaney & Bonnie. 

Fans loved their sound together so much that they overwhelmed the duo with requests for more shows. Now their concerts have expanded to offer a range of Capricorn Records artists, blues favorites, originals, and unexpected interpretations of classic rock.
