The Details:

Our Blues, Brews and BBQ series will take place every Thursday from June 14 to Sept. 13. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m., with the headliner playing from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

How much does it cost?

Admission to Blues, Brews & BBQ events will be either $7 or $10, depending on the band. The price will be posted on Hotel Bellwether’s Facebook page days before each event. The first show, on June 14, will be $7 and will feature The Shannanagins. Most food options will cost anywhere between $7 and $17.

What will the food be like?

The BBQ side of Blues, Brews & BBQ will include a variety of options, all cooked on-site over all-natural mesquite lump charcoal by the talented folks at the Hotel’s restaurant, the Lighthouse Grill. You’ll be able to purchase cheeseburgers, ribs, bratwursts, a bucket of crab, as well as other seafood and BBQ options. Entrée purchases come with house-made potato salad, fruit salad and coleslaw.

Will it be just Blues bands?

Blues, Brews and BBQ events will feature a variety of music genres, including two nights where Hotel Bellwether goes Country and hosts Miller Campbell, a rising star born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, whose debut album “Sweet Whiskey” released in 2017 to great success.

Is it always only on Thursdays?
