It’s time for Muletide Perkins to head on up the 400 Block Bar for a good ol’ time filled with friendly folks and raw country blues originals. It’s also service industry night so anyone who works in the restaurant business gets a deal on beverages.
If you haven’t heard Atomic Boogie yet then it is a must for you to check them out this Friday night at the 400 Block Bar. These guys light it up every time with high energy jump blues and rockabilly swing. This is old school rock & roll.

In only a short time, My Ninja has become a much talked about band that offers something fresh to the local music scene. Black-eyed Johnny Peyton fronts this trio by wailing on the keys and mixing in loops and samples as well as vocals. Shanghai Slim Jim Maddox keeps time and bangs on the kit, while Philthy Philip Orton adds a super slick guitar riffs for a sound that makes for an almost retro ’80s return. Check them out at the 400 Block Bar on Saturday.
