Club Rhythm & Blues

Luther the soundman, an old freind and associate, invited me and my wife Lucy to the grand re-opening of Club Rhythm & Blues, a nightclub here in Albuquerque. The event was last night, and featured free champagne, munchies, and good music from the Blues Kings.

We've attended several gigs at the CRB in recent years, usually to see the Eric McFadden Trio. It's a nice little venue -- emphasis on the word "little." The place will hold a couple of hundred if everybody stands just right. But the size is nice. The proper word is probably "intimate" rather than "little."

We had a really good time, though we didn't get a piece of the cake. I would've liked a piece of the cake. The hors d'oeuvres were good: tiny pizzas, shrimp, chicken skewers, the usual cheese and crackers.

We look forward to seeing what's going to happen there now. The place has been closed for several months, though we've never heard why. Probably just a lack of bottom line. They have some strange drinks on their drink menu. One is a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. I read the ingredients and I wouldn't taste one let alone buy one.

If you're in Isotope City, and need a good blues fix, come on down. CRB is located at Central and Carlisle in the Nob Hill district.
