If you come to R.L.'s expecting a hard shot of the blues, blame the namesake, R.L. Griffin Jr., for your moment of disappointment. Minutes later, you'll blame him and his incredible house band for a damn good time, anyway. Despite the house's name, there aren't any blues tunes at this Palace; rather, it's a haven for Motown-era soul covers, open only on weekends to a capacity audience pretty much every night. Show up early to get dibs on table seating and bring a group (not to mention bottles of liquor, since the joint's BYOB), and you'll see why the house fetches a consistent crowd. Griffin's band, complete with a series of talented, rotating singers, is too busy having fun--and sounding mighty fine doing just that--to worry about the "blues" tag on the door.

Hi, I`m a blues artist. I`m from Indianola MS "THE HOME OF THE DELTA BLUES! I`ve been hearing good things about your place! A guy name Harrison Calloway, from Jackson "Malaco Records", said I need to meet you. So, I`m coming out there tonight. Hopefully we get a chance to meet and talk about some things. cherone
