Mayeux (pronounced "MY-YOU") and Broussard is a Country/Blues/Americana act from Austin, Texas. Formed in the Summer of 2011, the band consists of singer-songwriter's Tate Mayeux and Brian Broussard, and their band members Taylor Englert (Drums), Misha Ben-David (Bass), and Matt Wiley (Lap Steel Guitar). Mayeux and Broussard have been performing relentlessly with their full band all over Austin and the state of Texas. Their blend of gritty Texas country and swampy blues is quickly finding its place in Texas music. Their debut album "While The Gittin's Good" was released November 8, 2012.
"Mayeux’s raspy barroom vocals pair so beautifully with Broussard’s bluesy guitar riffs and just the right amount of fiddle and lap steel to make this band a perfectly sweet taste of all the best things about Texas music. Listen closely and you’ll catch a little swamp pop and rockabilly influence in there, all of it tied up with a filthy little bow that makes you wanna unwrap this band with a bottle of bourbon and a pretty little lady in your lap."

"The term “whiskey-soaked” gets thrown around a lot when talking about good ol’ Texas country, but upon listening to Austin group Mayeux and Broussard, it’s hard to deny them that title.
The group was formed in the summer of 2011 by frontmen Tate Mayeux (pronounced “My-You”) and Brian Broussard. Joining the duo in their band are Taylor Englert on drums, bassist Misha Ben-David, and Matt Wiley on lap steel, mandolin and banjo. The band has racked up some solid live performances at clubs like the venerable Hole in The Wall, the San Marcos stand-by Cheatham Street Warehouse and up-and-coming Austin honky-tonk The White Horse. They even had an opening slot at the late Leslie Cochran’s 60th Birthday Bash at Threadgill’s."
