Great Night of Music and Food

Well another successful night of great music, partying and food took place last night at Big Guns BBQ. Harbor Blue Band hosted a wonderful evening of live music and entertainment with their four piece band including acoustic guitars, bass guitar, keyboards, and drums.

We also had some great jams with Big Guns Bert joining in for a set with some driving leads and rhythms joined in midway by Jimmy Wells of the Pure Platinum band on keyboard adding his unique style and killer leads., Then we had a special treat with Lisa Watson ( Wells ) and her incredible vocals on Stormy Monday that tore the house down. Applause was overwhelming.

To break up the evening nicely in between sets the band featured Justin Keyes from the Justin Keyes Experiment playing some original and alternative songs with his unique vocal accompaniments.

S o keep informed of Big Guns Music News and enjoy the Smokin' BBQ and Blues.

Big Guns BBQ was conceived by Bert, Judy, and Kristy Calderon, a local family with numerous years of experience in the food industry. We now have three generations of food service expertise.

Having recently moved to the S. Georgia area, relocating from S. Florida, the family decided to open a long time dream of a family oriented restaurant combining live music and fresh smoked BBQ.

Bert has worked in every aspect of the food industry from fast food to high end dining and from wholesale distribution to franchise concepts and manufacturing. His wife Judy has had over 15 years experience in serving, cooking, and restaurant mgmt. Kristy, who was brought up around the restaurant business has front and back end experience plus a number of years as an accounting professional.

Bert has also been an amateur and professional musician since 1966, having opened up for famous bands such as The Young Rascals, The Blues Project, and The Butterfield Blues Band. He has played with a number of stars as an opening act plus played motion picture rap parties with Jeff Conaway, Joe Walsh, Robert Cray, Etta James, and BB King, and Randall “Big Daddy Blues” Webster.

He has also been a regional supervisor for such chains as Lum’s Restaurants, Black Angus Restaurants, Hollywood Café, and opened up a number of Vienna Beef Chicago Style Hot Dog Restaurants. Additionally he has a vast experience in special event catering, such as the Tamiami Youth Fair, Bahia Mar Boat Show and Motion Picture Catering, having catered movies such as Police Academy, Midnight Crossing, Miami Vice, Grease, Planes, Trains, and Autos, etc.

Happy New Year To All our Friends!

We wish you all had a great New Years Eve that was fun and exciting. We had a terrific show featuring Big Daddy and the Wailin' Wolves Band w/ Big Guns Bert. the band was rockin' out with many favorite tunes and Big Daddy performed to his best breaking in the New Year with the song Midnight Hour and his blues version of Auld Lang Zine.

A great variety of Blues, Funk and Rock was offered throughout the night and we broke in the New Year with an Official Big Guns Countdown and a champagne toast for all. Sean's drumming was phenomenal, Curtis' thumpin' bass was solid and together with Sean's drums laid a perfect foundation. Neil and Bert trading licks on the guitars all night and pounded out some great rhythms. Shaws harmonica was wailin' all night with exciting leads and backgrounds. Our feature artist Randall "Big Daddy Blues" Webster was incredible with unique arrangements, Funk / blues rhythms, awesome 4 octave vocals and a repertoire to make anyone start clappin' and stompin' their feet.

All in all we had a great night with an intimate crowd that broke in our New Years right. Keep checking our sites to find out about up and coming shows. We have the Wailin' Wolves w/ Morgan Smith and Big Guns Bert coming soon. On the 15th of January we will be featuring the HARBOR BLUE BAND, a unique acoustic / percussion group with great vocals.
