George Palmer Macias' music career started in San Marcos, playing in a duo called the Bentwood Rockers with songwriter Doug Forbes at venues such as Cheatham Street Warehouse and Katy Station. He moved to Austin in 1982 and played his first Austin gig at Emmajoes, opening for Butch Hancock, and has played various Austin venues either solo or with The Regulars, The Fyre Flys, or the 56 Babies.
