The Bee’s Knees was the sort of place where you’d pop in for one drink, and end up staying there all night. There really was no need to go anywhere else. Where other venues have live music once a week, or at the weekends, The Bee’s Knees seemed to have something on every night. You didn’t have to make plans to go to The Bee’s Knees. You could count on it being great, whenever you went, so it was perfect for last-minute or impromptu nights out.
I liked the fact that they had all different types of singers and bands on. It wasn’t limited to only rock music or just jazz. You never quite knew what you were going to get, but it was always something good.
Anais Mitchell Award winning folk singer Anais Mitchell was a regular performer at The Bee’s Knees. She states Dar Williams as an influence and this shows through in her stunning performances. If you get to see her play, don’t miss the chance!
Blue Fox Whenever Blue Fox was playing, it was certainly a night not to be missed. He really knew how to get the audience rocking with his impeccable showmanship and his mix of blues and folk music.
Dave Keller – Dave plays his distinctive blend of soul and blues, his music at The Bee’s Knees was the perfect accompaniment to a romantic date night. His mellow tunes would liven up as the night went on until people couldn’t help but get up for a bit of a dance.
Ian Ethan Case – Ian Ethan Case was certainly one to watch as he played his double neck guitar looking more like an octopus than a musician. Check out Ian’s albums, they’re well worth a listen. So relaxing and perfect for de-stressing if you’ve had a busy day!
Taryn Noelle – Seeing Taryn Noelle perform was something else. You felt as if you’d had a trip to the theatre, she was so captivating to see live. She really had the audience hanging off her every word, and what a beautiful, soulful voice. Once heard, never forgotten.
