CONGRATULATIONS TO CHRIS, Kayla, Eddie and everybody at Red Light Bar & Grill, which celebrates its first-year anniversary this weekend. Hard to believe it's been a year since they transformed the massive old bank building into a boomy room perfect for hosting parties and having live music. HartLyss, Pepper Spray and The Cheeseburgers have all played there the past year and it's an awesome live venue.
The Griffins have had their share of challenges this first year, but I'm not sure there isn't a more determined family around here. They've stuck it out and I really hope they see all their hard work pay off. It can take awhile - we've been in business for eight and a half years and it isn't easy.
The Cheeseburgers are honored to be playing Saturday night to cap the weekend celebration. Our first gig in there last year was off the hook, and we can't wait to get the place jumping again!
We are grateful to the places supporting live music, like Revelry, the Tap Room, State Street Bar, On The Rail and many others. When people show up determined to have a good time and enjoy the music, it makes for a fun evening, and we aim to please.
So get out and enjoy live and local music, no matter where you live. Be safe and hopefully we will see you Saturday night downtown!
