Join us for some Memphis Pit Barbecue and Blues at Red Hot and Blue!
Mon - Fri
$1 Off All Drinks
½ PRICE APPS
Welcome to Red Hot & Blue
Those pigs playing guitars behind those black sunglasses; their picture on the "pig wall" just jumps out at you when you go into a Red Hot & Blue Memphis Pit Bar-B-Que restaurant. Then it’s a full-scale assault on your senses. The air is so thick with the smell of hickory smoke and the sweet aroma of bar-b-que sauce that you practically taste the bar-b-que.
Red Hot & Blue replicates the old time flavors of the smoke shacks in Tennessee where you'd pick up your bar-b-que wrapped in a leftover potato chip bag (to keep the sauce from dripping on your car seat) and carry food home to eat.
Band night specials from 8pm-12am
$8 Coors & Yuengling Pitchers
$5 Long Island Ice Teas
$5 Sothern Comfort
After/During your BBQ feast, listen to the blues from 8 till midnight with The great Georgie Bonds!
"Georgie Bonds, a man who's voice has the power to shake the walls - without a microphone - yet also has the smooth gentle warmth characteristic of the finest balladeer's. Singing is his life, and anyone who has heard Georgie instantly understands why." - S.P. Clyde Boger
At Warmdaddy's, the preeminent blues club in Philadelphia, Georgie hosts the monthly, open mic blues jam, offering aspiring blues musicians the same support he received from Sonny Rhodes. As the house band, Georgie Bonds has shared the stage and played with Hubert Sumlin, Koko Taylor, Bernard Allison, Melvin Taylor, Kenny Neal, Mark Hummel, Slam Allen, Larry Garner, Bill Perry, Michael Hill's Blues Mob, Jimmy Vaughn, Carl Weathersby, Bill Branch and The Kinsey Report and the list goes on. He has played in Europe and been invited for a return engagements.
The unusual and unlikely story of Georgie Bonds' life has led to some wonderful music. In 2001, Georgie independently released his debut CD, "Sometimes I Wonder" and he is laying the foundation for his second CD. Additionally, he was chosen for an acting/singing role in the broadway hit, It Ain't Nothin' But The Blues, which was nominated for four Tony Awards and Best Musical and praised by the New York Times. Georgie has established himself as a world class singer/songwriter and blues entertainer and the best is yet to come. It seems as though the Blacksmith is blessed with the gift of making his dreams come true and his fans will reap the benefits of those beautiful dreams.
