native Texan (mostly San Antonio), Tom D. Williams grew up on the likes
of Buddy Holly, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams and various folk singers, as well
as classic pop & blues standards, and began playing as a boy after his dad
taught him some basic guitar chords. His background and range of musical
interests can be heard in the songs that he writes and sings. He has been
gigging part-time around San Antonio for over a decade.
Briley is a 2nd generation musician. Back in the day, his dad played
drums with many of the best jazz and big bands in San Antonio and Houston. Len
has been playing most of his life, and is not only an accomplished guitarist,
but a fine vocalist and writer as well. Keeping with the family tradition, Len
encourages and nurtures the love of music and performance in his daughters.
Tom and Len first played together in the mudpuppies (a once-a-year
collaboration for a benefit show). Later, realizing common musical interests,
with glasses of bourbon at their side, they would enjoy sitting on the deck
swapping songs. In 2007, The Flying Bourbon Brothers were born when they began performing regularly as a duo. The Flying Bourbon Brothers frequently include Brother Eddie Puente on drums and backing vocals,
Earl Tyrus or Alex Esquivel on bass, and often, "Miss Terri" Inman shows up to lend her smoky harmonies to the mix. They play most weekends in and around San Antonio.
