Susanna's Kitchen Coffeehouse
Live music every third Thursday
Great music! Wonderful musicians, great volunteers and a great cause. Proceeds from the Susanna's Kitchen concerts go to help people in our community who are in need, through Barnabas Connection, Operation Good Shepherd, and other Wimberley-area nonprofits, plus scholarships for pre-schoolers at Bright Beginnings.
Great food! Sugar Shack Bakery pies, tamales, pizza, coffee, and soft drinks available. Doors open by 7:00 pm. Concerts start at 7:30 pm and are held in the Fellowship Hall at Wimberley United Methodist Church.
Great Cause! We all benefit – those who come to hear the best music in Wimberley, those who have a great time volunteering their talents to produce the concerts, and the people who are helped by our donations. Mark your calendars for every Third Thursday year round.
Tickets are sold ONLY AT THE DOOR. Tickets range in price from $20-$25 depending on the musician. Cash and checks are currently accepted. Students under 18 are $5. Concerts are not appropriate for small children, as there is no childcare.
To ensure a good seat, and as some concerts sell out, come early! Ticket sales begin by 6:30 pm. Arrival between 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm is suggested, especially for very popular musicians. Come early, enjoy dinner with us and enjoy the concert experience in a small, intimate environment.

Del Castillo, an Austin-based band known for their their powerful, original take that blends rock, Spanish flamenco, Latin, blues, and world music with passionate vocals will return to the Susanna’s Kitchen stage on February 16..
The band, led by guitar-playing brothers Rick and Mark Del Castillo, has been bridging the gap between Spanish and English sounds for some 20 years. Fusing together rock, Tejano, and a large dose of blues, the band has enjoyed a highly successful career in two languages, buoyed by the brothers’ guitar work which Rolling Stone describes as “tumbling brilliance on nylon-string guitar,” reminiscent of “early Santana (with an assist from the Gipsy Kings).”
In just the first five years of the band’s career from the release of their first CD, Brothers of the Castle, Del Castillo received an astonishing 18 awards – including SXSW/Austin Music “Album of the Year” Awards for Vida (2002) and Brotherhood (2006), “Band of the Year (2003)”, and ASCAP’S “Best Independent Group of the Year (2005)”. Their last full-length album was 2012’s Live at El Lokal – Zurich. The band has toured nationally and internationally, headlining a number of music festivals. Many of their originals have been included in movies and TV shows by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and others.
The band took a much-needed hiatus in 2014 after an exhausting touring schedule, with much uncertainty over whether Del Castillo would play together again.
The band, now reunited with longtime charismatic frontman Alex Ruiz providing lead vocals, began performing together again in 2018, focusing on playing music and having fun together. They are now recording new music with the brothers’ mesmerizing guitar driven songs.
You won't want to miss Del Castillo on Thursday, February 16 at Susanna’s Kitchen Coffeehouse. Located at the corner of RR 12 and CR 1492 (at Wimberley United Methodist Church), doors open by 7:00 pm and the concert begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25 for adults, $5 for kids (available at the door only.) Pizza, tamales, pie, coffee and soft drinks are available. Proceeds benefit The Barnabas Connection, Operation Good Shepherd, and WUMC’s Bright Beginnings Preschool.
