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.

With a career that has spanned four decades and traversed more than a million miles, versatile singer-songwriter Jimmy Davis is the literal embodiment of the much too often used term "troubadour". This Memphis, Tennessee native musician, who first graced local stages at age 9, brings an infectious enthusiasm to every performance.
Jimmy Davis’s songs have been recorded by Martina McBride, Restless Heart, Tommy Alverson, Reba Russell, Walt Wilkins, as well as a myriad of other recording artists. As a backing vocalist, Jimmy has lent his extensive vocal talents to projects by numerous recording artists including, The North Mississippi Allstars, Jim Dickinson, Johnny Lang, Bernie Leadon, Keith Sykes, Michael Hearne, Toy Caldwell, Susan Marshall, Mark Collie and William Lee Golden. It's Jimmy's warmth, charisma and talent as a writer - performer that endear him to his well known peers.
In the early 1980's Jimmy began touring with the country recording artist, Charly McClain, as a rhythm guitar player and backing vocalist. In 1987, Jimmy Davis & Junction signed with MTV's QMI/MCA record label. The band's first release "Kick the Wall" yielded a top 40 AOR hit and a hit MTV Video. Junction was renowned for their live performances, and their songs took the band on a wild, rock and roll ride around the world.
Aching to get back to his roots, Jimmy, headed back to Memphis in 1995 and had the pleasure of hooking up with some of his old buddies, The Riverbluff Clan, a rocking bluegrass outfit from the 70’s. With Jimmy on lead vocals and guitar, the band released two critically-acclaimed independent albums, in 1996, "One Night In A Month of Sunday's" and 1998, "Two Quarts Low" an Americana Top 20 record. Jimmy was named “Premier Male Vocalist” five times by the Memphis chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and was well loved by local audiences.
In 2001, he recorded a solo album with all original music and lyrics, titled “Jimmy Daddy’s Acoustic Song List". 2006 brought his best selling “Campfire Songs,” which is a 25-year collection of songs and ballads written around his travels. The release of his third solo album, “BEAGLES: The Blue Album” in 2008, featured Jimmy writing, singing, engineering, and playing all the instruments. In 2009, he release “Jimmy Daddy’s Acoustic Song List Volume II.” 2015 brought another round of home demo's with "BEAGLES: In The Country".
Jimmy agreed to join the respected Texas group, Walt Wilkins and the Mystiqueros in 2011. He relocated permanently to the Texas Hill Country in 2012. When not playing or recording with the Mystiqueros, Jimmy tours playing his songs for fans at festivals, sold out venues and house concerts.
