The Blues Bottle Band - BYC Winter Nights

Friday, October 5th

BYC Winter Nights welcomes the Blues Bottle Band to the BYC Lounge this Friday, October 5 at 8:00 pm.

Why are they called the Blues Bottle Band? No idea. But I do know that I like a good five piece blues band in a cool setting like the bar at the BYC.

The jammin' starts at 8:00 pm so why not get here a little early and get in a nice sunset and a cocktail beforehand.

Winter Nights have arrived!
