West Texas Musicians Project

Author's Note: The following Links will lead you to several indexes of musicians,singers, songwriters & recording artists of West Texas. These listings mainly deal with persons who were active between 1940-1980. Have you heard of Bob Skyles and the Skyrockets? They were active in the late thirties & early forties in the Midland-Pecos area and are listed! Some of the later listings include the Maines Brothers Band of Lubbock and Pedestrian Crossing of Plainview. All fields of music are included in the lists with an emphasis on Rock, Western Swing & Country. I have also written several articles about early Music & Musicians of West Texas which are also included in the links below. Be sure and check out my Photo Albums too as they include some rare band photo's!
