Blue Mondays at Hal & Mal's

The Central MS Blues Society, Inc. hosts Blue Monday every Monday night at Hal & Mal's in downtown Jackson, MS.  Blue Monday is a celebration of the blues - musicians are invited to come jam with us.  This video shows how CMBS offers local young artists a showcase for their talents.


That's every Monday night, 7:15-8:15 Front Porch acoustic hour, followed by CMBS's Blue Monday Band at 8:30 'til 11PM.


Simply Down South caters food for us on Monday nights, great southern menu  and very affordable prices. Cash bar.  Security, and free parking.  Admission:  $5 ($3 for CMBS members).
