After years of blues, rock and lots of dancing, the music at Bluz at the Bend is ending this week.
Earlier this month owner Maryanne Snyder announced the business, which had been for sale for several months without a buyer, would close down. In the announcement, Snyder cites personal issues and other financial commitments.
“Maryanne Snyder, Don Parkins and the entire staff of Bluz at the Bend would like to thank each and every one of our faithful patrons for your years of support and caring,” the announcement says. “This has been a wonderful experience for all.”
The last hurrah is tomorrow, April 25, with Sammy Eubanks performing and a retirement party (from the restaurant industry, anyway) for Parkins.
Uncle D’s Comedy Underground — upstairs from Bluz — will continue to have professional comedians every Friday and Saturday, along with open mic night on Thursdays.
