A concert celebrating the life of George Reiff.

As both a bass player and producer, George Reiff was a pillar of the Texas music community in a career that spanned nearly four decades and included countless musical styles. Anchoring bands in Houston, Dallas, and on the national touring circuit, George ultimately put down roots in Austin where he established his recording studio, The Finishing School. George's playing credits are too numerous to list, but he toured and recorded with artists including Charlie Sexton, Joe Walsh, Jakob Dylan, The Courtyard Hounds, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Jon Dee Graham, Michael Fracasso, Ian Moore, Bruce Robison, Fastball, Cotton Mather, and Patty Griffin. As a producer, George helped guide the vision for albums by Ray Wylie Hubbard, Band of Heathens, Shinyribs, and many others. George passed away in May of 2017 after a 10 month battle with cancer. This concert is a celebration of George's rich musical legacy, performed by his friends and longtime collaborators.
