Boogie at the Bay in Horseshoe Bay in June
Boogie at the Bay in Horseshoe Bay is giving people five good reasons to groove on Wednesdays in June — for free. The summer concert series features Ryan Jones, Steel Country Outlaws, Tone Junkies, Brandon Alan Band, and Band Exit 505.
Performances are 6-8 p.m. at Quail Point Lodge, 107 Twilight Lane in Horseshoe Bay. Admission is free; no assigned seating.
“Our motto is ‘Bring a blanket, a buddy, and a beer,’” said Mike Brittain, managing principal of Horseshoe Bay Business Alliance, which organizes Boogie at the Bay. The series is now in its seventh year.
Ryan Jones kicks off the series June 2. His first single, "El Paso," was released in 2020 from the album "She Doesn't Like Flowers," which is now available.
Though the album is new, Jones is a veteran musician. He began taking piano lessons from his mother when he was 5 years old. At 15, Jones studied piano with the late Darel DeCounter, who played keyboard and sang backup for country music star John Anderson.
Jones spent 20 years in the golf and hospitality industry before deciding to become a professional musician. The rest of the Boogie at the Bay lineup is:
- Steel Country Outlaws on June 9
- Tone Junkies on June 16
- Brandon Alan Band on June 23
- Band Exit 505 on June 30
Steel Country Outlaws are marking their second performance at Boogie at the Bay, and Brandon Alan is a local singer-songwriter with plenty of Nashville experience.
Brittain said food and drink will not be served during performances.
During previous series, each performance drew at least 200 people. Organizers are requesting that attendees wear face coverings and practice social distancing.
“We will suggest, but we won’t interfere with anyone’s comfort level,” Brittain said of the COVID-19 protocols.
