Welcome to Tuckers' Blues
2617 COMMERCE ST DALLAS,TX 75226
Tuckers’ Blues opened its doors on September 18, 2009 in Deep Ellum, the historic heart of the blues in Texas. Couples Larry and Wanda Tucker, and diannetucker and Roland Young have planned for years to open a blues cabaret and this Commerce Street location is an ideal spot. Right in the heart of the neighborhood where Texas blues flourished, where almost a century ago, the best blues artists in the world once worked and and lived, there sits this quaint little hideaway. Having managed a non profit theatre troupe together for more than a decade, and having helped their parents who were blues club owners. they developed lifelong passion for blues music and for live entertainment. These four feel uniquely prepared for managing this great night spot, a location with its own rich history as a live entertainment venue.
What makes Tuckers' Blues’ most notable is the entertainment. The best of a very rich local talent pool are regularly on the Tuckers' Blues stage. The Cotton Club or Small’s Paradise during the Harlem Renaissance established the style of entertaining that some say was matched by Deep Ellum itn its 1920s -1930s heyday. It is that joyous, welcoming, creative, vital ambience to which Tuckers’ Blues aspires. Tuckers’ provides ongoing forum for local blues artists. Friday nights and Saturday nights, there's live lavish blues entertainment on stage 9:30 pm - 1:30 am, featuring different singers and musicians each weekend. Tuckers also produces other special events including original plays with music. During its first two years of operation, Tuckers developed and produced a tribute to Etta James titled "Simply Etta," and to Billie Holiday's blues recordings titled "Billie's Blues." The next production planned is a tribute to Texas' own Janis Joplin. On weeknights Tuckers' is often the venue for "Mama's Party" hosted by Amy Stevenson, for stand up comedy, latin jazz, and cd release parties, etc. Check our online calendar for details. Tuckers' is also available for private parties and special events.
