The Texas Kitchen in Euless serves great home cooking like original chicken fried steak and biscuits and gravy. However, every other Friday night a different kind of original is served up there as The Texan Playboys take the stage in the corner.

The Texan Playboy band leader, Louise Rowe, got her start with Bob Wills quite serendipitously one summer night many years ago.

“Right here in Dallas, Al Dexter booked a battle of the bands with Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys and the Seven Rowe Brothers Band” said The Texan Playboys band leader Louise Rowe.

 The Seven Rowe Brothers were her own brothers and when Bob Wills heard her sing, fate took a hand.

“Bob walked over to me and he said ‘Child, I’m looking for a girl singer for an 18 day tour, would you like to go and sing with us'” Louise recalled.

That 18 day tour turned into over a year with Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys.  Louise has stayed in music all these years and a few years ago she formed The Texan Playboys and they play and tour all over the country.

 Louise Rowe’s Texas Playboys is made up of very well known Texas musicians as well as several folks from the original Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys.

Every other Friday night you can come hear The Texan Playboys in concert at The Texas Kitchen in Euless, right there on Mains Street.
