The Bugle Boy, 1051 N. Jefferson St. (Hwy. 77), La Grange, TX 78945

The Bugle Boy takes its name from the Andrews Sisters' 1940's hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”. The barracks now housing the Bugle Boy originated at the WWII Camp Swift Infantry Base in Bastrop, Texas. In 1948, the La Grange Sons of Hermann Lodge purchased the building from the U.S. Army and had it relocated to La Grange where they conducted their meetings until 2004.

Since doors opened in January of 2005, The Bugle Boy has presented more than 1,000 performances of original, independent music and has become one of the premier listening rooms in the country. What is a "Listening Room," you ask? It’s just what the name implies: a space where you go to listen. Talking is not permitted during a performance. A Listening Room environment creates the best and most intimate experience that an artist can share with an attentive audience. It’s like having a personal, live concert in your own living room! Artists who perform at The Bugle Boy have great things to say about this special listening environment; our audiences do too.
