In 1993, people traveling west-bound on Interstate 10, were among the first to witness the erection of a big red barn with an enormous metal roof, ideally located in Leon Springs, on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas. What they didn't know at the time, was that over the next several years, a legend would be born, history would be made and the infamous name, Leon Springs Dance Hall, would become synonymous with the best of Texas entertainment. From 1993 to 2005, Leon Springs Dance Hall enjoyed an influx of sold-out events including annual Labor Day and New Year's Eve parties, private parties and special bookings, and weekends that when opened to the general public, would exceed attendance expectations. Patrons just couldn't seem to get enough of Leon Springs Dance Hall - from the salt-covered, wooden dance floor to its memento-adorned walls. But the real jewel of the Dance Hall, in addition to the touted mile-long bar, were truly the musicians who graced the oversized stage of the Dance Hall year-after-year. From the pre-radio days of The Dixie Chicks to the nationally renowned Johnny Dee & the Rocket 88's, Leon Springs Dance Hall for many was a place to hear some of the best up-and-coming country western and old-time rock and roll bands in and around Texas. Although Leon Springs Dance Hall had an amazing twelve-year run, all good things must come to an end.or so it seemed. Much to the dismay of several thousand long-time patrons, Leon Springs Dance Hall closed its doors in January of 2006 after celebrating one final hurrah - New Year's Eve. Although many rumors circulated as to what would ultimately become of the historic establishment, including demolition of the big red barn and its enormous metal roof, August of 2006 brought about some excellent news that consequently spread like wildfire as the media began buzzing about the resurrection of Leon Springs Dance Hall.
