LIVE MUSIC with Boukou Groove on stage at The Funky Blues Shack Friday, December 22nd! Come for dinner and stay for the party. Music cranks up around 8pm and goes until late night. Live music and drink specials every night with happy hour 4-6pm.
Founded on the stage at Tipitinas in NOLA in 2010, Boukou Groove is the brainchild of singer/producer Donnie Sundal and New Orleans guitar luminary Derwin “Big D” Perkins. Sundal, sharing stages and recording with the likes of Sam Bush, Col.Bruce Hampton and Junior Marvin of The Wailers, creates an infectious blend of energy and enthusiasm as he showcases his multi-octave ranging vocals while sustaining his brand of lavish Moog bass lines. Big D (Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentleman, Bonnie Raitt and Dr.John) provides his smooth and funky guitar licks largely based on improvisation and feel alone. Together, no matter what the venue, the band provides their distinguishing style and creates a kinetic environment that’s easily spread throughout the audience.
Graffiti & The Funky Blues Shack is now located in the old Chili's restaurant location on Hwy 98 in Destin (recently moved from Baytowne). The colorful restaurant features seafood, pasta and pizza with a full bar and plenty of dance space and funky art on the walls. Funky Blues Shack is host to some of the best music artists and bands year round and that tradition will continue. The original Graffiti and the Funky Blues Shack remains on the corner of Beach Drive and US 98 in Destin.
Open Mon-Sat 4pm til 2am and Sunday 4-10pm. Happy hour nightly 4-6pm.
