About Augie Meyers

Very few artists in rock and roll are as closely associated with an instrument and its sound as Augie Meyers is with the Vox Continental organ and its reedy sizzle. In 1964, Meyers joined the Sir Douglas Quintet with his boyhood friend and lifelong musical compadre, Doug Sahm. Inspired by San Antonio's conjunto accordionists, Meyers used pumping, syncopated lines to define the quintet's unique Tex-Mex psychedelia. After their initial break-up in 1971, he embarked on a long career as a roots rocker and reteamed with Sahm continually for SDQ reunions and the Grammy-winning roots supergroup, the Texas Tornados. Meyers also provided the atmospheric intensity on Dylan's acclaimed TIME OUT OF MIND and LOVE AND THEFT.
