About Bubba Mitchell
All the time Bubba was growing up in Gonzales, TX, he was around music. His Dad played guitar and his Mom played violin. "My cousin is Big Walter and my first cousin is O.S. Grant who I started my first band with called the 'Down Beats.'" We recorded in the late 50's on the Sarg label and with the help of DJ Tony Vaughn we were touring all over Texas. In the 60's, Bubba stayed in Austin and started playing with Blues Boy Hubbard and the Jets, also playing with T.D. Bell and from 66 to 67 playing with James Poke. During this time Bubba liked listening to local guys like L.P. Person, A.J. Manor and the drummer Yul Dewitt. From 68 to 88 Bubba did not play. For the past 5 years he has been a minister and you can see him play at the Harris Chapel in Nixon on the first and third Sundays of each month.
