Best Blues Club - 2013
The Rhythm Room
1019 E. Indian School Road
Phoenix, AZ 85014
The Rhythm Room isn't only a blues venue, and it's not the only blues venue in town. But Bob Corritore's 22-year-old venue is synonymous with blues in Phoenix anyway, and for good reason: It can't be beaten for sheer blues density, in the form of regular jam sessions from influential locals and the cream of each year's touring crop. For music genres and music venues alike, being labeled "venerable" or "respectable" or "important" is often a kiss of death, one false step away from being embalmed in pioneer-village-style edutainment and remembered by a wistful crowd at some other, newer venue. But the Rhythm Room is in no danger of becoming a museum piece; its tireless promotion of the local and national blues scenes, not to mention its willingness to go off-book and host acts like Kitty Pryde and Rotten Sound, will make sure of that.
Hold on, is there another blues club???? Another great job again, my hats off to you and your staff.
That should come as no surprise. Thumbs up to Bob Corritore and everyone there. See you in December! Boom boom boom boom!!!!
