CHRISTOVAL, TX – Over 600 people showed up to Cooper's Bar-B-Q Saturday night to enjoy a live concert by San Antonio's Two Tons of Steel.
On May 16, Mark and Kim Cooper brought in multiple bands and invited the community to come out BYOB style and have a good time.
"Over here our motto is Be Safe and Live Free," said Mark Cooper on what made him open up to such a large crowd. "Tonight was to open the gate, let people get out, get some sun, and live free."
Cooper's reported that around 600 people came through the doors but since they have a 2 acre concert venue they didn't seem to worried about the CDC guidelines. "We have tons of activities and space for people to spread out." said Cooper.
As for Kevin Geil, lead singer of the Two Tons of Steel Band, he is just happy to be playing music again. "There is not a whole lot of these venues." said Geil. "Thank God we got to play tonight because I couldn't take another Saturday night on the couch in San Antonio.'
Cooper's Bar-B-Q will be holding another concert this Saturday.
