Red’s Lounge – Clarksdale, Mississippi

Other Mississippi juke joints have come and gone, but for over 30 years, Red’s Lounge has provided the Mississippi juke joint experience to the world. A pool table, Christmas lights and Delta blues memorabilia lining the walls, and Red Paden at the door make this the place for real deal Mississippi blues. Delta players like Big Jack Johnson, Frank Frost, Sam Carr, T-Model Ford, Super Chikan, Robert Belfour, Big George Brock, Terry “Harmonica” Bean, Mr. Johnnie Billington, Jimbo Mathus, Cedric Burnside, Jimmy Duck Holmes, and so many others have played Red’s. National acts like Johnny Rawls, Watermelon Slim, and Eric Sardinas have also taken Red’s stage. Don’t be surprised to be standing next to a Tom Waits or Robert Plant who include Red’s on their Delta agenda. In addition, Red is very involved in community activities, hosting fund-raisers for local musicians.
