Blue Water Highway

Local favorite Blue Water Highway Band is returning to The Clarion at Brazosport College in Lake Jackson for a 7:30 p.m. performance on Sept. 8.

Blue Water Highway was started by two friends from Brazoswood High School — Zack Kibodeaux (lead vocals/guitar) and Greg Essington (vocals/guitar). Years later, Kibodeaux turned to Catherine Clarke (vocals/keyboard) to complete the three-part harmonies the band would soon be known for, followed by the addition of Kyle Smith (bass).

They take their name from the roadway that links their hometown of Lake Jackson to Galveston, where the cops, teachers, baristas, and chemical plant workers travel to work hard, play hard, blow off steam and dance to their favorite bands. Blue Water Highway’s music is the soundtrack for their lives.

Together since 2013, the band is celebrating the release of their fourth album, “Year of the Dragon.”

Tickets for the show are $27.50. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Clarion Box Office at (979) 230-3156 or online at To learn more about Blue Water Highway Band, visit
