The band playing the evening we went was quite versatile... The McDaniel Band. They of course played the Blues, but also a little Johnny Cash, Elvis, BB King and so on. Excellent back up musicians. This was our favorite spot on Beale Street.

We were at Rum Boogie Cafe and heard the amazing voice of the singer at Blues Hall through the connecting door. We walked in with our drinks. The music was great and the audience was lively. Good fun!

This space, like many others, is tiny, but full of cool stuff. The walls hold some old photos, paintings, memorabilia, and vibrations from many years of live blues performances. Take a seat, if you can find one, have a beer (and a cigarette if you'd...More

We were cruising Beale Street and the Hall took our ear due to the great music from the McDaniels Band coming out the door. Two BABBs and a couple of hours later and we left feeling thoroughly entertained in a lively atmosphere.
