Ellinger, Texas is a small community in eastern Fayette County near the railroad where early Czech settlers got off the train to start a new life in Central Texas. Among other things Czech it is the hometown of the Ellinger Combo. The name implies the sound of a jazz group playing in a cocktail lounge, but the band is far from that. To define the group, here is an abridged version of the liner notes from the Ellinger Combo's very first album From Ellinger With Love which was produced and recorded at the Ray Doggett Sound Studio in 1968.
“This fine band with the unusual name, but the smooth dance music, has won many fans with their unique style of playing.”
