Doyle Bramhall II, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Chris Layton: "Chateau Strut" (Originals)
Original Soundwaves Artwork created from the sound waves of the historic Stevie Ray Vaughn instrumental "Chateau Strut."
Chateau Strut was written in the mid-70s at Club Chateau by guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall, and keyboardist Billy Etheridge. It is believed that Doyle, Stevie, Billy, and bassist Scott Nelson recorded a one take demo later in the evening after writing the song.
Though a recording featuring Stevie Ray Vaughn was never made public, Double Trouble recorded it after Stevie's untimely death. Doyle Bramhall II, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Scott Nelson, and Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton played Chateau Strut for the first ever live performance at the Austin Cares Concert in February 2020 at the Moody Theater in Austin, TX. All the profits will go to support Concerts for Austin Charities (C4AC). C4AC produces music centric events as a means for raising funds for a number of Austin charities including Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), Step Onward Foundation, and Superhero Kids at Dell Children's Blood and Cancer Center.
