Longneck Road has had several big shows in the past two weeks, and will return to the Logon Cafe with opener Alex Rozell on Friday, May 13. On April 28, Longneck Road opened for John Anderson and Ronnie Milsap at the “Hats Off to Industry” event in Winnie, Texas.
On May 6th, Longneck Road performed for a great crowd at Starvin’ Marvin’s in Beaumont, Texas.
The following day, Longneck Road played at the Boys’ Haven Crawfish Festival in Beaumont, Texas, before heading to Kountze, Texas to perform at the Hardin County Muddin’ & Music Festival. This was a memorable show, as Longneck Road shared the stage with The Bart Crow Band and headliner Aaron Watson. This was an exciting two days for the band … 3 gigs within the span of 21 hours! Join us at The Logon Cafe in Beaumont on Friday, May 13. The show starts with Alex Rozell at 8:00 p.m., followed by Longneck Road!
On April 6, 2011, Dick LeMasters of Longneck Road played a solo acoustic set to open for Paul Thorn at Courville’s in Beaumont. We had a wonderful time, and Paul Thorn puts on one of the best shows any of us have ever seen. Paul, his co-writer Billy Maddox, and all of the guys in his band were great to meet. We just can’t say enough about Paul Thorn and his music.
For the remainder of April, Longneck Road has some private events booked. On May 7, Longneck Road performs at the Hardin County Muddin’ & Music Festival. Then, on May 13, we return to the Logon Cafe for a semi-unplugged show.
Keep on rollin’ down Longneck Road!
We had a wonderful time performing at Nutty Jerry’s in Winnie, Texas, on Friday, March 4th! It was a honor to get to open for Chuck Berry!
Thanks to the staff, stage crew, and the sound guys at Nutty Jerry’s for taking care of us and for doing such a great job. Chuck Berry put on an awesome show!
And to everyone who hollered out “One More!” at the end of our set, we can’t tell you how much we appreciated that!

We really want you to come to the Logon Cafe on Saturday, January 29 at 8:30 p.m. for our show. However, there is another Longneck Road viewing option that night for those who can’t make it to the show.
Jim King, who hosts the television show “King of the Road” on Fox 4 in Beaumont, will have video from the 24th Annual Gulf Coast Hall of Fame Concert. The show will air at 9:30 p.m. on January 29. Wayne Toups and Zydecajun will be the focus, but there will be a full-song performance clip of Longneck Road.
So, if you can make the show, set your DVR or other recorder. If you can’t come out that night, catch Longneck Road on the King of the Road show!

For this show, we’ve planned a first set with “acoustic” — the full band but with Dick playing acoustic guitar — versions of some of our favorite songs. This format is fun for the band, and this will be the first time we’ve played acoustic versions of several of our songs. The second set will be the full electric band, with a mix of rockin’ originals and classic rock covers. Don’t miss this show!
Thanks to Don Ball for booking Longneck Road to open the 24th Annual Gulf Coast Hall of Fame Concert! We had a great time, and it was an honor to open the show for Hall of Fame inductee Wayne Toups!
