Uncle Billy’s Rooftop to Host Sunday Gospel Brunch Series All Summer Long

Uncle Billy’s Rooftop to Host Sunday Gospel Brunch Series All Summer:
Includes Inspired All-You-Can-Eat Buffet,
 Specialty Cocktails and Beers, and Live Gospel Music

Sunday dining at Uncle Billy’s Brew & ’Cue is about to become a spiritual experience. Beginning May 27, Uncle Billy’s at the Oasis, Texas village will feature a lively Sunday gospel brunch. Perched 450 feet above Lake Travis, Uncle Billy’s Rooftop will host its divine gospel brunch every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. throughout the summer, showcasing spirited live music from some of the best gospel bands in all of Texas and the South, as well as a buffet-style brunch featuring a bevy of scrumptious breakfast, salad and downhome dishes, a barbecue-inspired carving station, specialty brunch cocktails and Uncle Billy’s award-winning hand-crafted beers.
Kicking off Uncle Billy’s brunch series on Sunday, May 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the River City Christianettes will face off against the Jones Family Singers in an old-fashioned gospel throwdown. Hailing from San Antonio and Markham, respectively, both of these house-wreckin’ female singing groups have enchanted crowds at the Austin City Limits Music Festival and during South by Southwest. Now they’re ready to raise their voices up on Uncle Billy’s expansive, 800-capacity rooftop deck, with a glorious backdrop of Lake Travis and azure Central Texas skies.
In cooperation with music-events promoter Marsha Milam, Uncle Billy’s gospel brunch series will be curated by Michael Corcoran, a veteran music writer for the Austin-American Statesman and a gospel music aficionado — ensuring one-of-a-kind brunch entertainment from only the best gospel musicians each Sunday. Other upcoming Uncle Billy’s gospel brunch performers include The Mighty Sincere Voices of Navasota on June 3, and Lake Charles, La.-based Lady Bea and the Angelic Voices on June 10.
While Uncle Billy’s guests take in the soulful gospel sounds and breathtaking lakeside views, they can also indulge in a variety of heavenly delights at the all-you-can-eat brunch buffet ($18.95 per person, $8.95 for kids 12 and younger). Highlights include melt-in-your-mouth Deviled Eggs, Macaroni and Cheese, Firecracker Slaw, Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, Potatoes O’Billy (Uncle Billy’s tastier version of Potatoes O’Brien), Poblano and Cheese Grits, Migas with Pulled Pork and Green Chile Sauce, assorted Quiches with Hollandaise Sauce and decadent Crème-Brule French Toast Casserole topped with Maple Syrup. Of course, Uncle Billy’s is renowned for its barbecue, so brunch wouldn’t be complete with a carving station with Smoked Brisket, Jalapeno-Cheese Sausage, Country-Style Sausage and Smoked Turkey. Lighter brunch options include Fruit Salad topped with Marshmallows and Walnuts, and Fresh Green Salads served with a choice of dressings.       
And since Uncle Billy’s knows no meal is really a meal to be praised without a specialty adult beverage, brunch will feature such delights as the Bottle Rocket Michelada, the Bee Sting (dark beer and orange juice), the Shandy (beer and ginger ale), the Bloody Billy (Maker’s Mark, Bloody Mary mix and a habanero green bean) and Bloody Mary, bottomless Mimosas and the full award-wining draft beer menu. It all adds up to an enlightened gospel brunch experience unlike any other in Central Texas. 
Uncle Billy’s Rooftop is located at the Oasis, Texas village at 6550 Comanche Trail, adjacent to the world-famous Oasis Restaurant above Lake Travis. The indoor-outdoor venue features live music almost every day of the week, and an award-wining barbecue, beer and cocktail menu served in a picturesque lakeside setting.
