George's Majestic Lounge located at 519 W. Dickson Street is in the "heart" of the "Entertainment District" of Fayetteville. It has a 25+ year tradition of putting on Friday early evening matinee LIVE MUSIC SHOWS! I attended on May 20, 2011 and will soon be back. Mr. Michael Burks, the future of the Blues performed from 6pm---8pm with NO BREAK in the "Garden Room" and The BelAires performed from 7pm---9pm in the other room. Both rooms are great for listening to music and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Dancing is permitted. No smoking. A bonus on Friday's is that Yazzetti's Homemade Pizza, Pasta, and salads is serving wonderfully delicious Italian food. A full bar is available for beer, wine, and liquor...all at "normal" prices....no upselling here.
It was $5.00 at the door to see two bands. Great Deal! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The bar staff fast and efficient and cheerful. Didn't matter whether you were a local regular or just a tourist out for a good time: EVERYBODY was treated great and friendly like.
George's Majestic Lounge is now on the radar screen. This music lover WILL travel back to this place to see more bands and find more places in this "Entertainment District" where there are many other live music venues and all kinds of food. This Friday night early show is great for an older person such as myself because it means I don't have to figure out what to do until 10pm when most bands start up the show. It allows a person to eat some good food and hear some music and be done by 10pm which is bed time! This writer met the owner, Mr. Brian Crowne, who was nothing but a swell guy answering all of this reviewer's many questions (This reporter went into the place at 1pm.....they serve lunch between 11am---2pm) about the place and giving me free run to just walk around and look to see where I'd be sitting and what not. Very encouraging and friendly.
Thanks.....trying to get back there for the June 17 Michael Burks show.
