Big Poppa E Rules the Blues at Tobacco Road Tonight

The oldest liquor license in Dade County belongs to Tobacco Road.

B.B. King has played there, John Lee Hooker has played there, and more blues legends than you can roll a barrel of whiskey at have too.

It's the type of place where you can swing your wang dang doodle till you find the right woman, and then you can be her backdoor man.

The hardest working bluesman on the tri-county scene is Big Poppa E, and he brings his signature jazzified sound to the stage for his weekly residency.

If you've never seen the dude wail, it's worth the trip, and if you've seen him a hundred times, it still is.

Have a scotch, a bourbon, a beer, some ribs, and a good time.

Big Poppa E and the E Band. Monday, June 13. Tobacco Road, 626 S. Miami Ave ., Miami. The blues jam begins at 8 p.m. Call 305-374-1198 or visit
