live music

I am staying at a hotel on the Riverwalk and was wondering what the live music options were within walking or short cab distance

at Market Square you can usually find strolling musicians at the trio of restaurants there.

please let us know what kind of music you are interested in and when you will be visiting

the weekend entertainment guide is The Current...simply google it and San Antonio and you will get the calendar

T-Hombre stole my thunder! Darn time zones! Highly recommend Guy Forsyth at Sam's. Check out Sam's and Guy's website.

The Lavens are a local family of excellent musicians. Nothing fancy. You could catch their show first. Barriba has free music most nights. It's on the river so it's easy to check out. http://www.barribacantina.com/

I have to respectively disagree with pruske on her recommendations. They are fun, rowdy, touristy places where you'll hear lots of cover songs and pop. Howl at the moon is one big Karaoke sing along. Lots of drinking, little to no good music. Again, fun if that's what you're looking for, but not what I consider live music.

Another option, though not a short distance from downtown, are the dance halls. Gruene http://www.gruenehall.com/ and Floores http://www.liveatfloores.com/
