There's good rockin' tonight! Johnny Walker (Soledad Brothers) and the Cut In the Hill Gang will grace PJ's stage once again tonight! Last time Johnny was here his old buddy Jack got up and jammed on a couple of songs. Look for hot licks and dancing grooves from The Gang tonight.
Danny & the Darleans bring their brand of garage/R&B rock'n'roll to open up for Johnny. Starting the show off will be The Young Ghouls. The music tonight is good time rock and roll. Come on out and have some fun.
While your at it, try one of our burritos, some homemade soup or a basket of Cajun fries! Neopolitan Milkshake Stout and Bells Two Hearted Ale are on tap, along with 9 other great beers. All the way from Ireland or as close as down the street, our beers and food are always fresh, local and yummy! Kitchen is open until midnight.

Well, Wednesday we saw great performances by Zula, Highest Order and Characteristic! You can check them out easily enough but make a point of catching all three of these bands the next time they come through. Tight, sharp & unique. Good stuff! Get out once in awhile and checking out a band you might not know, won't hurt at all and you may be pleasantly surprised by what you see and hear. Simone the lead singer of Highest Order is someone to watch. Great voice and great stage presence and a tight band.
Thursday night is going to be a showcase for some great acoustic talent with Alison Lewis, Rickett Pass, 5th Wall Concept and Swing Tire Drinking Choir. Rickett Pass provides hot bluegrass. Alison always brings an unmatched passion to her singing. The other two bands have good reps, but haven't been around before. Support local and touring bands alike. Come on out and check out something different. You won't regret it.

Last Night and Tonight
Posted By pj on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 11:24:00 AM
Mike Anton and the Mantons provided their usual, energetic, extremely danceable mix last night. Take a little Dylan, some Howlin' Wolf, a bit of Grateful Dead and a lot of hard luck Blue collar rock 'n' roll and you have the Mantons. Extra special last night was the return of Steve on bass. Why almost no one comes to see these guys, I just don't understand. Catch them someplace. I think you'll be glad you did. Great music all night from 4 Block Empire, The Mantons and Superbomb. Thanks fellas!
Tonight should be off the hook with a vague them running through the bands names: Bleached, Swimsuit, Butt Babies and Fake Surfers. Bleached were formerly in the band Mika Miko, which means little to me, but you probably know more than me about that band. I have been told that this will be a fun rockin' show. Hope you can make it down.
Saturday night we are featuring a personal favorite of mine, Cannonball Underground. They are Detroit funky and put on a great show. If you like the funk of P-funk and the Meters you will enjoy the heck out of Cannonball Underground. United Souls and Ben Keller and the 500 club complete the lineup for the night. Off the top of my head, I don't know much about either of these other bands, but rest assured that my friend J. would not put any slouches on his show. So bring you dancing shoes and enjoy some funky, funky music this Saturday night.
4 Block Empire

4 Block Empire - smooth guitar - hot keyboard/organ - funky drumming and bass. What's not to like

Just finished a fantastic plate of J-Rae's Corned Beef Hash here at PJ's. Mmmm, mmmm good! Great Doop show last night. Ryan Racine & Gas for Less gave a heaping shot of that honky tonk country! Watch for our Honky Tonk Throwdown in late May of early June for more of the great American music. I'm going to try to hit this blog more often. Tonight's dinner includes fried grits and shrimp in a spicy cream sauce w/ bacon; thin cut pork chops with grilled potatoes, Voodoo Shrimp & rice and Mexican Voodoo. Of course we will be featuring out Sunday Salad, which this week will have greens, apples, pears, blueberries sweet& spicy pecans and parmesan cheese. Dinner starts at 6pm, but we are open all day with brunch till 3pm. Regular menu from noon on.Kate & David from the Blueflowers and Mike Galbraith tonight at 8pm, free and acoustic. Hope to see you today or tonight.
Whoa! Last night!

Well if you didn’t make it last night you missed a
tremendous show by Staggolee, Rue Moor Counts and Moving Monsters. The RMC will
be back August 25 and they should not be missed. Dustin on bass & Rob on
guitar just shredded the whole room! Staggolee lead by Sammy D’s style, Tom’s
drumming and Justin’s bass was just great! Smoking guitar, & smoldering
vocals, it was a rhythm driven thing! Joker in full makeup, vest and tie with
heavy rock verging on hardcore slammed out by veteran performers, Moving
Monsters are a force to be reckoned with and will be appearing in a nightmare
in your dreams!
Our mister is here! our mister is here!

You may not believe this: Karen just walked in with a fantastic mister for our patio! Cool mists of water for those hot, hot days & nights! Stop in & check it out yourself! This is the best!
