The lead singer is a true entertainer - a cross between Elvis and Johnny Cash with the energy of Jerry Lee Lewis. So glad we got to enjoy a show at this classic venue and you just can't help but like the Wagoneers. They truly love their craft and have fun entertaining you!

We learned about the Peterson Brothers performing at the Continental Club from our Air B & B hostess. The club is great and the Peterson Brothers are amazing.

Great old music venue. Doors open half hour before the show, pay a more than reasonable cover charge and enjoy what Austin is known for Good Music. Grab a beer, listen or take to the dance floor. Enjoy.

Brothers Glenn and Alex are amazing! They light up the room with their energetic blues performance. Backed by the most amazing rhythm guys I'm seen in a long, long time, this act is tight! this act is soulful! and this act should not be missed. Monday evenings from 6:30 to 9. No cover. The Club itself is comfortable, fun, and... More

I was in town on Business, and I love both the Continental Club and getting to see Dale Watson any time I can. If you haven't seen Dale, you simply have to go see him! He's in many ways an unsung Texas legend, though he is getting more visibility lately with the advent of Jimmy Kimmel and SXSW. Continental Club... More

This is a great club for live music. Park nearby on South Congress St. Get there on the early side and you might grab a seat, otherwise, expect to stand. The sight lines are excellent in this small (150 cap.?) club, and the sound is crystal clear, although very loud. But hey, that's rock n roll, right? Everyone on staff... More

We spent a Saturday afternoon here enjoying the music of Bill Kirchen, a terrific guitarist who plays country, Western and rock. The place filled up pretty fast but we had gotten there early and got seats. Several couples were dancing up front and we enjoyed the whole scene. It's an traditional much venue and historic in Austin. Well worth a... More

We greatly enjoyed visiting the Continental Club. Great drink prices and the music and dancing was phenomenal! Shows start after 9, but get there early for a drink and to get a good spot in the front!
