If you love the blues or if you love historical sites, you need to visit this classic "juke-joint"! Beautiful Florida vegetation, surrounds this jewel, for the most part unaltered from the days of Son House and Robert Johnson. A bonfire, a smoked fish shack, and damn good music!

Don't bother coming hear if you play good hardcore music the (no profanity allowed) scene here makes the show a real (no profanity allowed) bad experience. Why do I say this? Well, if you want your fans to dance around in a mosh pit and have a good time then this is not the club for you to come to.... More

The Bradfordville Blues Club is a blues, roots and Americana music venue. We cater to audiences that prefer a unique setting and a particular style of music. The Mississippi To Florida Blues Trail Marker and the Blues Foundation's Keeping the Blues Alive award attest to the club's authenticity and contribution to the preservation of the blues as an art form....

Attended my third New Years Party at the BBC. Was ill over the holidays but rested up for a must do occasion and danced the night away (two hours actually) . This is THE place for live music in Tallahassee. Heck! Make that the best venue for live music in the tri-state area.

The Bradfordville Blues Club is unlike any other venue in the Tallahassee area. The building looks gritty and maybe a little worn, but that's part of its charm. The place oozes atmosphere and character. The club is hidden away back in the woods. On your first trip there, if you think that you're lost in the middle of nowhere, then... More

This is the place for the real deal blues... A raw juke joint style no frills venue with a down home feel and high caliber performances presented by Kim and Gary Anton.. two of the greatest people you will ever meet

In a word, it's outstanding. I visited a few blues clubs in the Delta country and BBC seems like it was magically transported from rural Mississippi. The set up matches the club perfectly -- wander down a dirt road, take the left fork and there it is, in all its cinder block glory. Don't expect finding one of those sterile,... More

The BBC isn't quite like any other music venue that I've been to. The crowd skews a little older than most places in Tallahassee (which is a relief for most people over 25). It's tucked away off a dirt road (two, actually), and you can only find it by following the torches and signs. The small size of the venue... More

A Jook Joint is a place known to hold the truths of Blues at heart, where dancing and cavorting can happen, where you see the musicians sweat as they make great music, a place where you sense history yet celebrate the future. The Bradfordville Blues Club (BBC) is one of only few such places in America. Nestled down a dusty... More

The bradfordville blues club had been hosting blues talent since slavery was legal. The history of the place adds to its charms. Besides blues, they also have rock performers with a different musical edge. A huge bonfire warms you and there is food during intermission. A tallahassee treasure. Go while the weather is cold so you can appreciate sitting around... More

Do NOT miss the chance to step into a good old fashioned jook joint and disk in some blues! Hidden away, it's world away from typical Tallahassee nightlife! It draws great artists and an eclectic audience.
