Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale is celebrating its 21st anniversary with a two-day long party to commemorate its extensive history in the Mississippi Delta.
Since 2001, the club has held a spot in the Blues Alley in the historic downtown district of Clarksdale, with its name originating from the crossroads where Robert Johnson allegedly sold his soul to the devil.
Ground Zero’s “Big 2-1” party will be held from 8 p.m. until midnight on Friday, May 27 and from noon to midnight on Saturday, May 28.
The event will feature numerous bands including Lala Craig, Lucious Spiller, Jimmy Duck Holmes, Big A and the Allstars, Heavy Suga and the SweeTones, Terry Big T Williams, Muddy Alexander, Keith Johnson and the Big Muddy Band, and Mr. Sipp.
Other events at the club’s anniversary celebration will include Southern comfort food, door prizes, and a giant birthday cake for all attendees to enjoy.
Tickets can be bought at the door for $25 for each day, or weekend passes can be bought online for $40.
