It's not often you see one venue promote another but The Bradfordville Blues Club (BBC) holds a special place in the hearts of J@M founders Russ and Josie Pangratz. Their first date was at BBC and Russ later proposed to Josie there. BBC owners, Gary and Kim Anton (pictured) have supported the blues for years and work very hard keeping the blues alive. If you're a fan of the blues we encourage you to check out BBC and support them.
The Bradfordville Blues Club experience is like no other. It combines a truly unique location and atmosphere with the best the Blues has to offer. Hidden in a rural part of Tallahassee, the experience begins when you travel down the winding dirt roads and up the hill that lead to the Club.
Surrounded by fields of tall stalks of corn and old majestic oak trees dripping with moss, the one room cinder block "juke joint" has hosted an impressive list of nationally renowned Blues acts. The more than 50 original portraits autographed by the "Kings and Queens" of the Blues, which serve as table tops and wall hangings, attest to the quality of our entertainment. The Club is open on Friday and Saturday nights and offers a good selection of ice-cold bottled beers and wine.
For the serious Blues fan the BBC has a different artist each weekend, usually with different touring acts on Friday and Saturday nights. Club appearances in the past have included such notables as Bobby Blue Bland, Bobby Rush, the late Jimmy Rogers, Duke Robillard, Kenny Neal, Big Daddy Kinsey and the Kinsey Report, Big Jack Johnson, E.C. Scott, Eddie Kirkland, Johnnie Marshall, Darryl Nulisch, Sandra Hall, Ms. Lavelle White, Son Seals and a host of others.
The bonfire burns nightly under the large oaks and provides a great atmosphere for romance. You can usually meet the artists as they too enjoy the rustic surroundings out by the fire or you can just sit back and relax during the set breaks. So, please come join us for a memorable Blues experience at the Bradfordville Blues Club
Just follow the tiki torches down the dirt roads till you reach the juke joint under the stars. We'll keep the bonfire burning, the beer ice-cold and the music hot!
