Getting the opportunity to perform at The Leon Springs Dance Hall  again is an unexpected, wonderful surprise.
I have fond memories of The Drugstore Cowboys 1st CD release, listening to great bands when we'd share the
venue for special events {17 years ago it was the 1st place I heard Jan Zerda, I've been a fan ever since},
listening and dancing to great bands on nights I wanted to go out Honky-Tonkin', performing for kicka#@!
parties, but my most fond memory would have to be the wonderful folks, young and old, who would come out
regularly to dance to The DSC. Many are still my friends and Jan is the lead singer in my band. We look forward
to making new memories in 2012.  BTW our 4th CD is on the way in honor of our 40th year in business, Stay

I have so many great memories of Leon Springs Dance Hall from years past!  The best thing has been the
wonderful friends we have made while performing in that fantastic hall under that tin roof.  It’s great to look out on
that big wooden dance floor at a sea of dancers, smiling faces, couples and families having a good time creating
new memories.  Reminds me of how proud I am to play music in

We are thrilled to be back at Leon Springs Dancehall.  We were the headliner opening weekend and played
the final show for the previous owner.  In all, the band has played at the Dancehall well over 100 times, and
has been on the bill with acts including Steve Wariner, the Dixie Chicks, Johnny Dee and the Rocket 88's,
Johnny Bush, Johnny Rodriguez, Augie Myer and countless others.  The family friendly environment, excellent
acoustics and great dance floor make it the last of a vanishing breed.  Leon Springs Dancehall is a South
Texas tradition that separates  the San Antonio area from any other place on the map.  Our band routinely
drew crowds in excess of 1,000 people, and we look forward to packing the hall once again.

Our 2nd CD release party was held at Leon Springs, and we have great memories of the over 500 fans and
family came out to celebrate the event with us!  Several San Antonio media celebrities even attended.  
Hosted by the late Wiley Alexander, it was just a wonderful evening to share our music, including Brenda’s
song “Little Country Dancehall” that tells the story of the Texas Dancehall Experience.  Leon Springs has
always been a place where people come to “DANCE”, which is what we love to see.  So many future
weddings have come out to hear us there, helping us to achieve the distinction as the top South Texas
Wedding Band.   We also remember the many Decembers we spent playing for numerous XMAS parties
there, what a great way to close out a busy year.
