The B. B. King's Blues Club, located at Pointe Orlando on International Drive, Orlando, Florida, presents a unique dining experience for music lovers. This club is a blues connoisseur's heaven. A showcase of impressive live performances, gracious hospitality, down home cooking, and plenty of dance space for foot stomping.
The atmosphere is festive and inviting. The decor is notable blues chic. A vivid archive of blues alumni' and posters presents an array of artist profiles. Stroll around and see the likes of B.B. King, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Ma Rainey II, Gus Cannon, Kevmo Travis, Gatemouth Moore, Hammie Nixon, Joyce Cobb, Jimmie Lunceford, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Albert King, T-Bone Walker, Jimi Hendrix, and many more music icons perched around the club.
Delicious comfort foods are served in generous portions. The menu items are tantalizing and standouts from the ordinary. The rub-downed ribs are of the highest quality, tender, meaty. The barbeque sauce adds an accent flavor and a luscious finish. The rotisserie split chicken is moist, topped with tasty crispy fried onions; an excellent marriage of two distinct flavors. The soul sampler's Memphis wings are honestly hot, a zesty treat. The fried dill pickle chips are an unexpected pleasure, surprisingly a good delicacy. The one other must try item is the green fried tomatoes. They are firm with just-the right tanginess and not over seasoned. A large selection of specialty drinks, shooters, cocktails, wines and beers are offered.
The B.B. King's All Stars Band is hot, true blues titans. The band is comprised with dynamic musicians, each one masters of their own instruments. They captivates the crowd in with an emulsion of expressive vocals, mean guitar licks, intense horn blasts, rocking drum beats and rippling keyboard sounds. They deliver a cascade of outstanding blues hits with energetic passion. They rock bluesy infectious songs. Their playlist is not at all monotonous. Etta James' sweet "At Last!" is delivered with pure charm and elegance. Marvin Gayes' landmark "What's going on" is a superb soulful rendition. Their version of Muddy Waters' popular "Got My Mojo Working" is rich. A very uplifting and thrilling tune which drives the crowd to cried out with, "Don't stop now!", whistles and cheers. Everyone is having a good time. They perform Ray Charles' famous improvised call-and-response "What'd I Say". An obvious intense crowd pleaser. The on the spot improvisation of the lyric "see girl with the red dress on" cleverly changes to "see the guy with the red shirt on" for good reasons. Segue from Al Greens' "Love and Happiness" to Aretha Franklins' "Chain of Fools", to her "Respect" is classy and pulls most the crowd out their seat and on the dance floor. Louis Jordan's "Let the Good Time Roll" stirs and dazzles even more. The strong solos are jolting. The party is on with an upbeat, gritty version of Junior Walker and the All Stars' popular dance tune "Shotgun". From one hot wailing repertoire into another is eclectic, they are attune and keep the good time rolling. Sam and Dave's "Hold On I'm Coming" duet is heartfelt, fierce and sassy. The dancers kick it up it too, transform from couples cutting fancy shad steps into to an frenzy strutting line dance. Great stage lighting. Fabulous show.
Thoroughly enjoyable. For a big dose of cherished blues with a side of sweet soul, stirred with flawless hospitality and served with a succulent home style meal.
