  1. I remember the jam sessions on Saturdays. A friend of mine, Bill Just,played drums for the Plainsmen and they were usually there. I also remember seeing the Hagar Twins and Buddy Allen, Buck Owen's son, play there.

  2. There have been a number of big name guests who have performed at the club recently, including Erykah Badu and Blackalicious to name a few. nightclubs near me
