Sir Douglas Quintet
August "Augie" Meyers (born May 31, 1940) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, performer, studio musician, producer, and record label owner. He is perhaps best known as a founding member of the Sir Douglas Quintet and the Texas Tornados.
In the early 1960s, Meyers and Doug Sahm founded the Sir Douglas Quintet. His Vox organ was a familiar element of the group's sound, as heard on tracks like "She’s About a Mover" (1964), "Mendocino" (1969), and "Nuevo Laredo" (1970).
Since the 1970s, Meyers has operated several of his own record labels, including the Texas Re-Cord Company (co-founded with Lucky Tomblin), Superbeet Records, White Boy Records, and El Sendero.
