DESTIN, FL – November 8 is the 7th annual Blues, Brews and BBQ at HarborWalk Village (Destin, Florida) where you’ll find blues, brews and barbeque from 11am-4pm. Live music includes The House Rockers featuring powerhouse Patrice Moncell at 2pm, bringing soulful Mississippi Blues as featured in the documentary, “The Last of the Mississippi Jukes.”
Providing one of Mississippi’s great traditions, authentic blues, the genuine deep fried Southern kind, The House Rockers — aptly named for the band’s ability to wear out the most enthusiastic dancers — won’t stop until the last dancers drop. Patrice Moncell is returning to the stage for a special performance for Blues, Brews and BBQ. The band was featured in “The Last of the Mississippi Jukes,” a documentary by filmmaker Robert Mugge. The inspiration proved successful; the documentary can still be seen on the Starz cable network, and the film help preserve this slice of Americana history.
Mississippi’s own Queen of the Blues, Mocell played Mae Wilkins alongside Mississippi bluesmen Vasti Jackson and Eddie Cotton in “Robert Johnson: Stop Breakin’ Down.”
