The Saint Louis Social Club is a band of all star musicians. They have been fixtures in the St. Louis music scene for over thirty years, each featured in a variety of well-known bands. They have played together off and on throughout the past; but in 2011, based on kindred musical tastes and mutual admiration, these six guys got together and began playing twice a month on Tuesdays at BB’s Jazz, Blues & Soups. They play other venues as well whenever their schedules allow. Booked as the band for the “Royal Rhythm & Blues All-Star Review” on February 14, 2014, they helped celebrate the 250th birthday of St. Louis at the “Burning Love Festival” in Forest Park (shown at right). The music they make as a unit, while blues based, is eclectic and ranges from smoky atmospheric to hot salsa, with a whole lot in between.
