Congrats to George’s Majestic Lounge!

George’s listed in the top 100

georges-05Congratulations George’s Majestic Lounge! Listed by the music magazine Consequences of Sound at #87, and the only one from Arkansas, in their top 100 American Music Venues.

Check their awesome schedule and come see FlashBack, we will be playing here May 20th. Come and celebrate this fine establishment with us.

The longest-running club in Arkansas sure looks the part, with its rustic brick interior, worn-in atmosphere, and impressive collection of University of Arkansas yearbooks dating all the way back to 1911. (If you’re a regular, they might even ask you to sign one.) George’s Majestic Lounge began hosting regular live shows sometime back in the 1970s, and it’s a good bet that some of the white-bearded dudes sitting at the bar on any given night were there for at least a few of them. These days, the music tends to skew toward blues and roots rock (this is the South, remember), and luminaries such as Robert Cray, Leon Russell, and Charlie Robison have been known to stop by from time to time. It’s hard to blame them, seeing as how there aren’t many bars like this left in the world.
