Last-Minute Idea: Blue Monday in Paragould

Kimberly J. Williams
If you’re ANYWHERE near Paragould this evening, you should head downtown to the Red Goose Deli to hear Big Red and the Soul Benders. The performance begins at 7 p.m. You can check out their YouTube video here…and you’ll see it’s WORTH the trip! The performance is part of the Blue Monday series, hosted by KASU Radio in Jonesboro.

This is an exciting week for Big Red (also known as Kelley Taylor) and her husband and bass guitarist, Mike. They are also opening their new restaurant in historic Helena on Wednesday. Blues Bayou Restaurant and Blues Club opens to the public this Wednesday at 11 a.m., with a performance by the Joe Pitts Band at 8 p.m. Be on the lookout for another blog on the restaurant, which is bringing live music back to historic downtown Helena on a regular basis! You can check out the restaurant’s Facebook page here.
