“Bluesville revisited.”

Bluesville Performance Hall
Ranked #12 of 26 things to do in Tunica
Attraction details
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Another show at Bluesville, this time the Moody Blues. They were excellent, and those old pharts can still tear it up. Bluesville has taken a slight turn for the worst. In order to make money from the venue, it has been turned into a late night nightclub to cater to the weekend party set. the floor has been stripped of the seats in order to accomodate the crowds. On show nights, seating is now hauled in to the room, then removed when the event is over. While I understand the economic rationale behind this change, it is a step downward. Less comfort, less visually appealing. I'm sure the nightclub is another oustandingly average Vegas style late nite, overpriced hip hop joint for the young affluents. Bad move for the show set. I'll still go to see other shows, because they bring in some of the best entertainment around. The sound is still excellent, and it's still an intimate venue for great performers. But a DJ nightclub???? seriously!!!!

Bluesville is an intimate venue snuggled in the midst of the Horseshoe, the Goldstrike and Tunica Roadhouse casinos. Two minutes max is all you need to walk between any of these places. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. There is seating for about 1500, maybe a little bit more or less. Over the years, my wife and I have seen several great shows, and we have never been disappointed. Buddy Guy in Feb, 11, was simply astounding. This old man did things on guitar that puts everyone to shame. That includes Clapton, Hendrix, and Isley. Basically, he schooled them. Ringo Starr and his Allstars a few years back was excellent, with a capital E. Drinks are a bit pricey, so it pays to spend some time at the nearby casinos before you see a show. Easy entrance and easy exit. The only time we didn't get to meet the performers after the show was when Ringo played. Was able to meet some of the other performers that night. We have planned trips to Tunica around big performances for years. We'll be back in later this year to see the Temptations. If you have to have a huge stadium and masses of humanity around you when you see you're favorites, Bluesville isn't for you. If you want to see them up close, this is the place for you.

Attended a fantastic Dwight Yoakam concert at Bluesville on 8-8-2009. The venue is small enough to feel intimate yet large enough to allow lots of energy from the crowd.

Have attended Dwight Country Music show for past two falls. Husband and I sincerely expect to return this year if I can get vacation time. The horse hoe is small enought to se the singer up close , the concerts in Memhis are very large and one is never able to actually "view" the singers.
