About the event

As many of you may of heard, we are in the midst of a pandemic and we are navigating uncharted territory.  In the interest of public safety we are following the guidelines set by the State of Texas,  the City of Houston Health Department, the National Restaurant Association, and the experts at the Texas Medical Center.
Until there is a vaccine for COVID-19 we will continue to follow these guidelines to keep you and our crew as safe as possible.
We are sending this to you as a loving reminder that each and every one of you are important to us and we are committed to following the guidelines that were developed to help protect you.
There are so many, I hope you will forgive me for listing them in this “matter of fact” way, instead of my usually rambling storytelling.
So here goes:
1. We will all be wearing masks.
2. Our guests will be required to wear masks until they are seated at their table and whenever they get up to leave the table.
3. We will take everyone’s temperature with a contactless thermometer.  Anyone who has higher than 100.1 will not be allowed entrance.
4. We must maintain a six foot distance for guests waiting to enter the building and a six foot distance when waiting to use the restroom.
5. We will have table seating only.
6. There can be no standing or ordering from the bar. We will offer table service only.
7. If our guests wish to visit with others not seated at their table, our patio is the perfect spot to hang out.  We cannot “congregate or gather” around a table inside.
8. There can be only one person at a time in the restroom.
9. Our front door is now the exit. Our backdoor is now the entrance. There is hand sanitizer available for you to use at both places.
10.   Every table and everything that was on the table will be sanitized between each use.

Monte Warden spent time as a honky-tonking teenager and a renowned purveyor of old-school country music. He has made his living as a songwriter and a singer. He has seen a lot of the music industry in 35 years, from when he started playing gigs with Austin’s beloved Wagoneers to when he wrote hits for guys like George Strait. He started around the time LPs yielded to CDs and stuck around long enough to see CDs give way to downloads.

So being a singer, songwriter and leader of multiple bands during a pandemic is just the next step for Warden. On June 12, he’ll play a duo show at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, which will likely be for a diminished audience because of social distancing guidelines. The show will also be streamed for fans, because Warden has learned over the years to adapt formats to the people who want to hear his music.

“I never in a million years imagined I’d be presenting my music the way I’ve been doing,” he says. “But I’ll say this: Doing livestreams has been a Godsend and a miracle for me and my family. And not only financially, but also spiritually. This is something I’d never have done if not for what is doing on. And when this is all over, I think we’ll still do something like it. It’s the next thing in a changing business.”

Over the past few years, Warden has split his time between the reunited Wagoneers and a new project, Monte Warden and the Dangerous Few. This month he was supposed to come to Houston with the Wags — the Austin band that made a lot of noise with two records in the late-‘80s.
