We will soon have a weekend with an amazing band, Mike Babbs & Company. Why a whole weekend? Because we can't get everyone in Uncle Bo's in one night!
Mike Babbs is our local BBQ King, who moved to Dallas and opened Babbs Brothers BBQ. Mike loves the blues and is a performer himself, performing at his own BBQ and having guests weekly. Great show, great company.
