New this season, we’re turning the club over to the kids—and the adults who love them, of course!

Austin, Texas, boasts a spectacular music scene, and Gina Chavez is a ten-time Austin Music Award winner and was named the Austin Musician of the Year in 2015. Chavez traverses boundaries—in her musical styles, her bilingual lyrics, and her work as a cultural ambassador with the U.S. State Department—and creates a welcoming space for all. After spending time in El Salvador, she found a passion for working with young people, creating this family-friendly concert that will be the inaugural Kids Club Hancher event. Free snacks and lemonade available for all attendees!

Little Village Magazine - Friday, January 24, 2020

Musician Gina Chavez is a study in synthesis. In a story familiar to many multi-ethnic Americans, she didn’t always have meaning or identity convenient to her. But she has made a life and a career of creating meaning, of pulling disparate elements in her life into communion with each other.
