Situated squarely between
Memphis and Nashville on
Tennessee's "Heart of the Music
Highway," Jackson has been
the birthplace of numerous
notable musicians in the
traditional Southern styles of
rockabilly, blues and gospel.
The famous names of Jackson
include Carl Perkins, Sonny Boy
Williamson, Big Maybell and Big
Joe Turner. Time your visit right
and you might catch the annual
Shannon Street Blues Festival or
the Rockabilly Festival, hosted
by The International Rock-A-
Billy Hall of Fame. n
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS
The music found in San Marcos is as
individual as the hip little city itself.
From small hole-in-the-wall bars to
big two-story concerts halls to career
launching honky-tonks, you can find
live music every night of the week.
Music is a natural part of business in San
Marcos, too. You'll find acoustic solos
in coffee shops, Indie bands in a pizza
joint or rock 'n roll and Western swing
served up with savory BBQ. Among the
city's music venues are Cheatham Street
Warehouse, The Marc, Riley's Tavern
and KIVA. For dinner and live music,
AquaBrew, Crafthouse Kitchen & Tap
and Kent Black's BBQ are popular spots.
Groups love the extra energy live
music adds to their meetings in San
Marcos, according to Denise Pardo, CTE,
Destination Services Manager at the San
Marcos Convention & Visitors Bureau.
"Groups can include an acoustic duo at
a luncheon for a relaxing networking
feel or put a different twist on an off-site
event at a rooftop patio or classic car
museum with a rockabilly band to get
things swinging." n
