Rick Redmond, owner of Lone Star Grille & Bubba’s Backyard, said he has big plans to beef up the live music scene offered outdoors in the gravel courtyard.
In mid-December the courtyard received two new fire pits and two more will be installed by the end of January. In the beginning of October, a new sound and lighting system was installed to prepare for the increase in live music shows Redmond hopes to host in 2016.
From March through October, Lone Star Grille plans to offer one large music act in addition to its regular live music shows on Friday and Saturday evenings. For example Redmond hopes to book country musician Kevin Fowler for spring show. For live music shows, a VIP area will be available for patrons at Higher Ground Bar & Lounge, the lounge that opened in the space above Lone Star Grille on Nov. 6.
The VIP section will include drinks and a buffet as well as seats on the outer deck during the show, Redmond said.
