Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Bandmates Remember ‘SNL’ Gig – KXAN

Sunday night, we saw the 40th anniversary of the iconic NBC program Saturday Night Live. … Exactly 29 years ago, on Feb. 15, 1986, Austin’s very own Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble appeared as the SNL musical guest.

Recently elected to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, Stevie and the boys were hot up-and-comers back then, and SNL knew how to spot them. “I love that show, watch it all the time,” keyboardist Reese Wynans said, grinning. “It was great to be on it. We had a great time. We did our song, played real loud, rocked the house, it was fantastic.”
