The “Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2020 Live Music Series at The County Line”is back—slightly reincarnated for May 2020.
After a brief hiatus because of the Covid-19stay-at-home order, this free music concert series that has benefited the San Antonio Food Bank for 19 years is back on Thursday nights—starting with the popular Bri Bagwell on May 7—and running through July 30, 2020.
At least for the month of May, concerts will be quaranstreamed live on County Line IH-10 Facebook from a private, closed-off banquet room in The County Line Bar-B-Q restaurant at 4334 Hyatt Place Drive (on IH-10 West between the Wurzbach and Huebner Road exits, near the Colonnade). No guests will be allowed inside the banquet room during the performances. All May musicians will perform acoustically as solo act except for Reed Brothers and Kin Faux. Streamed concerts will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m., without intermission.
The County Line Bar-B-Q restaurant on IH-10 will be open for dining room service beginning Friday May 1 with limited seating and social distancing as dictated by government standards—including masks and gloves for all staff. Tables will be available inside and outside; full bar and dining menus will be available. County Line will continue its robust to-go/delivery options seven days a week for lunch and dinner, with fresh smoked BBQ entrees off its menu, as well as most side dishes. Curbside delivery by masked and gloved staff will keep social distancing by putting order in car trunk or back seat; order to-go online. Delivery available through Uber Eats, Grubhub and Favor. Call 210-641-1998 for updates and to place to-go orders.
The live-streamed concerts in May are free, but all viewers are asked to donate money to the San Antonio Food Bank. Link to donate to the Food Bank is posted on Food Bank website at www.my.safoodbank.org/CountyLineMusic.
“Twenty years ago, County Line made a commitment to hold a free music event that would benefit the San Antonio Food Bank—and we intend to keep it that way, even in this Covid world,” says Mike Crenwelge, GM of the IH-10 County Line. “We can do that safely by streaming. And knowing the intense demand on our Food Bank right now, our support is more important than ever, with so many San Antonians out of work.” In 2015, the County Line was recognized by the S.A. Food Bank for raising food to feed over 1 million people since the music series started.
“We have seen a devastating economic impact from the COVID-19 virus and its domino effect into the lives of our neighbors and friends. The San Antonio Food Bank has worked tirelessly to meet the increase in demand for food and resources, but we depend wholeheartedly on the community to help us in this struggle. The County Line Music Series is an example of the support we desperately need. We are so humbled and grateful to be a part of it.” Eric Cooper, CEO & President of the San Antonio Food Bank.
The series kicked off on March 5 with a packed crowd to Mario Flores, Gabe Garcia, Clay Hollis and Bri Bagwell, followed by Small Town Habit on March 12. The series was suspended due to Covid-19 orders before the March 19 concert.
