Blue Guitar (The)
Watch for the illuminated blue neon guitar to guide you to this second-story club near the Plaza Theater. Once inside, enjoy the best blues music in Coachella Valley. The stage offers a state-of-the-art lighting and sound system just off a hardwood dance floor. The street-side balcony also holds a few tables, ideal for looking down on the crowds passing below. There is a USD10 cover charge on Fridays and Saturdays for the 9pm show. There is a free blues concert on Sundays. The music is the draw, but they also serve a mean gumbo and cheesecake.
I first saw Kal David playing backup for Johnny Rivers during a concert a couple of years ago at the Trump 29 casino. So Johnny Rivers says you gotta go to Kal David's place, the Blue Guitar, to hear the best music in the valley, and the only blues place in town. Laurie Bono is "divine" and reminds me a little of Ms. "M". I have since bought a home in the desert and whenever new friends or family come to visit, I take them to the Blue Guitar! Thanks Kal and Laurie for giving the desert a lot of class and a whole lot of soul.
Love Kal David, Laurie Bono, and the Real Deal! Cover of $10 plus pricey drinks are what keep this from a 5-star rating. Kal does a great cover of "Red House" and Laurie sings a mean "I Who Have Nothing". Outdoor deck is great during the winter months to sit and view the crowds on Palm Canyon.
