It’s simple, it’s straightforward, but you’ve never heard music move like this. Live, he is electric, and those who follow him around town would follow him to the ends of the earth.” Lee K. – Scout Network Blog.

Sunday Best with Summer Dean at The AGBG

Growing up in a small and rural, Texas town, Summer Dean was lucky enough to be blessed with a family deeply rooted in music.

The FREE show starts at 4:00 p.m. The AGBG, 1305 W Oltorf St, Austin.
