• This group is for everyone interested in the Honky Tonk and Rockabilly scene.  It's a live music and dance community to meet up with others and enjoy a mix of honky tonk, old country, rockabilly, and outlaw country swing for either sitting back and listening or dancing your boots off.  Yep I said old country and outlaw country swing, no country pop here.  We will also check out Hot Rod shows and a few surf guitar bands.  Click on the Join Now link and fill out couple profile questions. 

• There many of the best honky tonks in the state are right here in Austin, from The Broken Spoke, to Ginny's Little Long Horn, to the White Horse, Mercer Street Dance Hall, and so many more, we'll eventually hit them all.  See our Honky Tonk Info and Club listing page at http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Honky-Tonk-Rockabilly/pages/Honky_Tonk_and_Club_Listing/

• During the last year we've establish a semi-regular schedule. On Mondays we go to The Rattle Inn for a lesson with Two Left Foots followed by a great band.  On Thursday we meet up at the Broken Spoke.  Beth hosts Cajun Two Step at The White Horse on Friday nights.  Outings are usually scheduled a week or two in advance, but be sure to keep your eye on the calendar as there always one or two last minute events that seem to pop up every month.

• If you're not a dancer but want to learn we'll have plenty of "learn to" opportunities at local honky tonks and a directory of private instructors.  http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Honky-Tonk-Rockabilly/pages/Dance_Lessons/

• We have a few ground rules they're pretty simple: http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Honky-Tonk-Rockabilly/pages/Austin_Honky_Tonk_n_Rockabilly_Group_Ground_Rules/
