DANCE BAND SCHEDULE

 

SPAM, BOOZE, RHYTHM & BLUES

The Fly By Night Club is about live music--real music played by real musicians. No DJs, no sequenced computers--just cats with their Mojos workin' .

The other guys hire musicians to sell more booze. We only sell booze to support our music habit. And we got the habit bad. We have no format--if it's cool, it's welcome in Spenard. Some of the national guys who have played at The Fly By Night Club include:

Queen Ida & The Bon Temps Zydeco Band
Ben Sidran
The Riders In The Sky
Jay McShann
Memphis Slim
Dr. John
The Red Clay Ramblers

Brownie McGee
David Grisman  

There have been millions of incredible moments, but Brownie McGee took the cake when he sang the ultimate prize-winning verse in Spenard history:

"I wanna be your lover; I don't wanna be your boss.
I wanna be your lover; I don't wanna be your boss.
I'll stick as close to you, as Jesus stuck to the cross."

The audience was stunned! And we can't even repeat this story without seeking refuge from the lightening strike that we know is on the way!

Every Friday and
Saturday Night

After the show there's always live rockin' dance music--blues, R & B, swing, ska, zydeco, rockabilly--style is not important as long as the groove reigns supreme! There is usually no cover charge for dancing which starts about 10:30 pm.
