Sweet Melissa, Memphis Rockabilly Band, The Commonwealth This Week at Grumpy's

There's a little bit of everything this week at Grumpy's.

Tuesday Night is Dart Night at Grumpy's. Come on in with a couple friends and go head to head (or drink for drink...) with other like-minded folks. While you wait, there are always pool tables and a eclectic juke box to keep you occupied!

Thursday nights this summer, come on down and see The Commonwealth. They played a great gig last Thursday - their first time on stage at the Pub. This is a young band, and they have a great sound and a fun, energetic following. Come on down and support these guys! No Cover.

Friday Night we are taking a break from the blues and heading off in a different direction - The Memphis Rockabilly Band is in town for their first gig at Grumpy's. Check back in a day or so for a feature on this great, entertaining band.

Saturday Night we welcome back Sweet Melissa with Chris "Stovall" Brown. “…everything from softly swinging jazzy ballads to rip-roaring Texas blues-rock, and Sweet Melissa’s slightly smoky alto handles it all with aplomb. If there is one unifying feature to their sound, it is that she tends to give everything she sings a Memphis soul flavor, as if she were the last link to the days of Stax-Volt Records and Al Green and Little Milton were her musical ancestors. …her vocal the perfect mixture of grit and honey …the smooth soul in (her) delivery was magnificent."

We look forward to seeing you soon!
