B.B. King Blues Club & Grill: the legendary Times Square spot may be surrounded by hat shops, fast food joints and movie theaters. Still, nobody walks past the BB King’s front and just walks on without looking in. The charm of this historic music venue is not only in its longevity. This concert site has had some of the greatest music legends the world has ever known. From B.B. King to James Brown, they have provided their stage for the most diverse occasions. Home to Black August until this year, NY Underground Awards and much more, they have had Public Enemy perform there more than any other NY place as of recent. From Rakim to Ice Cube, from Roxanne Shante to Redman, BB King’s has harvested Hip Hop juices for the longest time. Monica and Ginuwine have also found a place for them there. The most uncommercial venue with all the attributes of commercial success, from location to the dining menu, BB King’s is unmatched in their arena.
Since its inception in the year 2000, B.B. King Blues Club has grown to become New York City’s premiere dinner and music club. Its name, like its namesake artist, has become synonymous with style, status and amazing entertainment. In 2002 and 2003, it was rated in an audience poll on citysearch.com as New York’s #1 live music venue. Its roster of performers have included the likes of James Brown, Brian Wilson, Isaac Hayes, Roberta Flack, Ray Charles, Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Bruce Willis, Hugh Masekela, Mike Smith, Vince Neil, Nancy Sinatra, Ice T, George Clinton and, of course, B.B. King himself.
