An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special – Austin Lucas “Unbroken Hearts”

After the better part of a decade spent criss-crossing the globe with a series of rock bands, Austin Lucas returned to traditional song craft and the Americana roots and traditional country genre. From his solo debut in 2006 to his 2016 release “Between The Moon And The Midwest”, he continues to evolve as a musician and songwriter. Austin performed an acoustic version of the title track of the new album for the Blue Plate audience called “Unbroken Hearts”. The CD also features guest appearances by John Moreland, Lydia Loveless, and Cory Branan. Learn more about Austin Lucas at

A Song & A Sip – The Mobros

The Mobros will be playing the WDVX Blue Plate Special on July 28th and we can’t wait! Until the show, you can enjoy their stylings with this tune, Excuse Me.

The band is comprised of brothers, Kelly & Patrick Morris. An electric songwriting duo, they  grew up in rural South Carolina where they learned to draw from their surroundings, blending the sounds of Soul, Rock & Roll, and Americana. Their music is a bit dark, but also light in nature.

This is the latest in our blog series, A Song & A Sip, brought to you in part from our friends at  Sugarlands Distilling Company. Each week, they share a great drink recipe as part of their #WhatToDrinkWednesday, and we thought it would be fun to pair the drinks with an amazing music performance. This week it’s the Blackberry Rosè Lemonade! Just like the music of the Mobros, this concoction is a little dark and mysterious, a little light and refreshing. It might seem like an odd combination, but it totally works! Crank up some music from the Mobros and sip on something delicious. Life doesn’t get any better than that!
