Live Music in the Texas Hill Country

Live Music in the Texas Hill Country

Live Music… it has become a beautiful thread woven throughout Fredericksburg and Gillespie County, providing energy around every turn. From musicians tucked in quiet restaurant corners to the rockin’ concerts at the Backyard Amphitheater, Fredericksburg and the surrounding area has the musical variety to satisfy anyone that wants to tap their toes to the rhythm. 

Texas music is alive and well around here. In fact, you can probably find some type of live music just about any day of the week.



What pairs well with every varietal? Music, of course. Whether it’s a single guitarist or a trio getting people on their feet, just about every winery provides a beautiful backdrop of melodies, adding to your wine tasting experience. Take your pick! Calendars vary, so be sure to check winery schedules. 


Many restaurants have music on the menu as well — some even have dedicated stages for their entertainers like Hondo’s on Main. The weekends are a sure thing if you’re looking for musical dining options but there are usually options during the week as well — especially during busy seasons and holidays. 

Luckenbach Texas 

Luckenbach is a category all to itself. And if you’ve never been there, one visit will help you understand why. Steeped in rich and infamous history, Luckenbach is a hotbed of live Texas music with a good, ol’ fashioned dance hall, outdoor stages and even a frequent pickers circle for those of you that may want to bring your own instrument and jump in the jam session. Just grab a beer at the General Store and have a seat under the trees. 


Oh, did we mention Luckenbach has amazing bands and concerts where you can practice your two stepping and line dancing? That’s right. There’s also Albert Dance Hall — a similar but smaller vibe. Want to really rock out? Visit Crossroads on any Saturday night and you’ll be magically transported to a big city nightclub. 


Are you a classics junkie? Rockbox is a small theater-seat venue with regular tribute shows featuring the music of classic entertainers of the past, like Merle Haggard, Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor in addition to other musical variety shows. 


Let’s not forget singing your own tune, too. The Velvet Lounge is your chance to belt out the blues…or whatever else rocks your world.
