Country Roads Supper Club at the West Baton Rouge Museum
Baton Rouge Blues on the "Gold Coast"
Sunday, September 30th from 6 - 9 pm, $150
We're playing your song with a blues-themed event taking place at a juke joint on the beautiful grounds of Port Allen's West Baton Rouge Museum. Chef David Crews, creator of Cleveland, Mississippi's nationally recognized Delta Supper Club, will be at the stove, while local blues duo Smokehouse Porter and Ms. Mamie play classic Baton Rouge blues at the historic juke joint located on the grounds during cocktail hour.

At the West Baton Rouge Museum in Port Allen stands a Juke Joint that illustrates the major role West Baton Rouge Parish played in the evolution of the "Baton Rouge Blues." In the first half of the 20th century, less-restrictive liquor laws and the many juke joints on the westbank created fertile ground for live music by legends like Slim Harpo, Buddy Guy, Lazy Lester and Ernie K-Doe. That combination earned the stretch of Highway 190 from the river to LA 415 the nickname "The Gold Coast"
