Russell McClanahan and the mOOn Crew will be serving up the timeless sounds of old time string band music in the Harvest Moon dining room.
333 on Broad will host Jon Byrd in the back bar downstairs for a family friendly acoustic dinner performance.
The first week of Sam Club & the Case of the Malted Falcon was a huge success. This is a dinner theater murder mystery hosted by 333 on Broad and put on by Acts of Random Theatre (A.R.T.). There are only two more nights (Friday and Saturday) and tickets are going very fast.
Kneckdown has been on a run recently where they have been recording selected live performances in order to release a live album. They are looking to catch that energy that only happens when the band and their loyal and responsive audience share great times. Friday at 333 on Broad will be the last of the recorded shows. Make sure you’re there so you can say, “I was there for that one!”
The Cornbread Killers have been working long and hard on their debut CD and it has finally arrived. The self-titled album was released last week and Friday night the Moon Roof Bar will host the Cornbread Killers CD release party. You can tell that a lot of heart and soul went into the CD. The twelve originals are fresh, well performed, and range from deeply retrospective to cleverly catchy.
Old Havana is excited for the return of the Pollard Greens Jazz Quartet, a group of extraordinary jazz musicians that put on effortless solid performance of a wide range of classic and modern jazz.
This is going to be a big Halloween downtown so if you’re getting decked out in a sweet costume I would recommend visiting all of the downtown venues as they are all offering up great Halloween festivities. I believe all of the venues are celebrating on Saturday this year.
Scott Warren and the Collard Green Berets will be picking out Southern blues based rock & roll at 333 on Broad for a big Halloween throwdown. Warren wails on the guitar, howls some sweet soulful vocals, and has a smoking band to hold it all down.
The 400 Block Bar is hosting a big Halloween Extravaganza with a costume contest, games, prizes, specials, and live music by Muletide Perkins Trio. The 400 Block Bar is known for hosting some of the best Halloween parties in the past and they’re always looking to have an abundance of fun.
Jon Byrd will be dressed up in costume at Johnny’s Pizza, where you can kick the night off with some dinner and some excellent tunes. Byrd has become a local favorite and has earned a great fanbase of folks who love his great originals and classic covers.
The Moon Roof Bar will be getting spooky with the keyboard driven groovy tunes of My Ninja, one of the more recent bands that have stirred up quite a buzz this year. If you haven’t seen them you need to and Halloween is just as good a time as anyway.
Punk Rock Halloween House Party!!! You know it. The Pox, Unseen Stimuli, and The 40 Hells will be vibrating the walls at 7 Myrtle Street right across from the magic of Myrtle Hill Cemetary. It’s a perfect place for Halloween!
