Club Staccato was formed by Austin fingerstyle guitarists Eric Bettencourt and David Hamburger. Over the past few years they grew to admire each others songs and guitar playing; eventually they found a few excuses to play together. That was more fun then either of them had anticipated so naturally the pair started dreaming up band names; finally settling on Club Staccato.
John Chipman was recruited for drum duty and Matt Lindsay on the bass. The four piece recently released a Live CD of some of their first and last shows at the now defunct Strange Brew Lounge Side.
