His Houston show at The Hideaway on Dunvale was the first Texas appearance of his band Whooping Cranes; also featuring singer bassist C Dub, and singer drummer Bellian Marshall. This show was historical and hysterical!

For many years, Garret hosted a Christmas Holiday reunion party at The Ale House in Houston. Since the Ale House closed their business, the annual Texas reunion 2010 'Mistletoe Madness' event was performed & hosted by Garret at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar, along with bands: My Crisis. The Inanimate Objects, & The Businessmen. And, Garret opened the show with a firebursting Solo set of music. The evening included guest appearances by Tom Ng and Rod Rodriguez. For the 2011 'Mistletoe Madness' packed-house crowd at Dan Electro's in Houston, Garret presented The Octanes, Rockaway Radio, and The Businessmen with Mark 'Milo' Adams (fromThe Drive Off the Map album) on drums, and The Bmen Tom Ng (from the Rock Island days) on Bass & backing vocals.

In Oct. 2011, Garret brought his solo acoustic show to JP Hops House in West Houston, one of the finest acoustic music venues in all of Texas. In 2012/2013, Garret performed solo acoustic music for many visual art events at 2 Rules Fine Art in Marietta, GA, playing his original songs and solo guitar works. Upon completion of their album of original music in 2011, Garret and Whooping Cranes released their album in 2012 with CD Release Shows at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar in Houston, TX June 2012, and at the Red Light Cafe in Atlanta, GA November 2012.
