Nathan Lugo was born and brought up in San Antonio, Texas. Raised by two wonderful parents who loved Oldies, Rock & Roll and Country music, Nathan began playing guitar at an early age. By the time he was in high school he was starting to play local shows and was President of the Guitar Club for his last 3 years at Ronald Reagan High School where he graduated. It was around that time he began learning Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard and taking an interest in the voice as an instrument. Being completely self taught he loved to challenge himself and his abilities. He would take various lessons on and off but learned most of his valuable tricks of the trade from his peers who were far beyond his talent level. This included singing, music theory, rhythm, professionalism, stage presence, musicality and conducting a band to name a few. Nathan has since led various bands, extensively toured the United States, taught many students multiple instruments, done studio work, as well as played weddings, casinos, and corporate events. He has also been a Cruise Ship Musician and played with Nationally acclaimed Texas Country Acts. Being an entrepreneur and a strongly business-minded individual he has always striven to offer amazing quality and service with integrity. The journey, drive and passion are never ending in Nathan’s world.
In 1892, when Albert and Minnie Luckenbach sold their store in Luckenbach and moved 20 miles east to Martinsburg, the little town of Martinsburg was renamed “Albert”. The first local school was established in 1891, and in 1897, then Postmaster Otto Schumann opened the town’s first general store. By 1900, a new school building was erected that the young LBJ would attend.
The Albert Dance Hall was built in 1922 by Max Beckman, and provided the community a place for Saturday night dances and social gatherings. It featured German brass bands rotating between the Luckenbach, Hye and Weinheimer Dance Halls of the time.
Located just south of Highway 290, halfway between Fredericksburg and Johnson City, the tradition of community gatherings and dancing continues. We’re always happy to see familiar faces or make a new friend, so stop on by and enjoy a little taste of Texas tradition and a cold beer or cocktail while you’re at it. We’ve got live music most nights and our Icehouse and food truck, Bokita Gourmet Street Food; are both open everyday!
