Steve Wertheimer is the consummate Texas club owner, a self-effacing son of the Lone Star state who has made the Continental Club in Austin the pride of the community. On the surface, the effect he’s had on Austin is discernible all along fast and funky South Congress Avenue, but within secreted music rehearsal halls, studios and garages, musicians marvel at how he’s achieved his own personal vision of the Texas dream to the scene’s good fortune.
DR. GARY HARTMAN
Dr. Gary Hartman is the director of the Center for Texas Music History at Texas State University. Hartman and his friend and fellow history professor Gregg Andrews founded the program back in 1999 as part of the school’s history department, and to this day it remains the only comprehensive, university-based institution of its kind, providing a full range of programs devoted to the preservation and study of Texas music, from its roots to its present and future.
