But there’s a difference this year.

The Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2016 Live Music Series, as it is officially called, is now on Thursday nights at the restaurant, 10101 I-10 W.

Also new this year: full seating and dining are available on the patio beginning each concert night at 6 p.m. through the end of the concert at 9:30 p.m. Happy hour will run inside and outside of the restaurant, from 3 to 9:30 p.m. on concert days.

The series is now in its 16th year and “our faithful crowds have grown up with the series,” says Mike Crenwelge, general manager of The County Line.

Held on the restaurant’s open-air patio, the headliner goes on at 7:30 p.m. Concerts are held rain or shine.  Free parking is available at Hallmark College, less than one block away.

“Live music nights at The County Line are THE place to be for all hunger fighters,” says Eric Cooper, President and CEO, San Antonio Food Bank.  “We are so very thankful to the team at The County Line for their effort and passion and making the Food Bank a beneficiary of this great concert series.  For 15 years, two great institutions have come together with food, music and philanthropy to feed Southwest Texas.”

Sponsors thus far include Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram; Rebecca Creek; Enchanted Rock Vodka; Twilight Services; KSYM 90.1 FM; Comfort Air; Red Bull; Ozarka; Hallmark College; and Pure Party Ice.
