A few years back we decided that great Hill Country Bar-B-Q just isn’t the same without a side of Texas country music! So, we rounded up some of our favorite local artists to bring the acoustics to the Bar-B-Q to ensure our customers have a true Texas honky tonk experience. Artist include local favorites and out of towners alike. Gabby’s Live Music is offered most Thursday (Shepherd only), Friday & Saturday nights and  is free to the public.

From somewhere between Elvis’s flashy Vegas and Johnny Cash’s earthy Arkansas, comes a country boy in a little old Texas town called Houston. That’s where rural folk music, showbiz pop, and American rock and roll reached Mitch Jacobs.

So here’s a little slice of Wills, a little slice of Elvis, a dose of rock and roll, and a respectful country tip of the hat to Johnny, all in the tremolo baritone of one  Mitch Jacobs from Houston, Texas, but make no mistake, he’s his own man, not an imitator.
