Beyond a Song
host Rich Reardin
interviews The Bluebird Nightclub
owner Dave Kubiak
Dave Kubiak started out as the manager of 'The Peanut Barrel', a tiny bar downtown where you could have a beer and some peanuts and throw the shells on the floor, as I recall. Dave started allowing some local musicians to play, and it caught on, to the point where they had a small music venue happening. Eventually, he managed and became the owner of the existing and historic Bluebird nightclub, right across the street, and has continued to improve the club, and bring in some of the best musicians in the country, as well as being the home of many local artists who went on to become stars on their own, including John Mellencamp, David Steele, Jason Wilber, and many others. Throughout the years, the history of the Bluebird includes many world class concerts with the likes of Johnny Winter, Adrian Belew, John Prine, Leon Russel, Del McCoury, Junior Brown, and many, many more than I can include here.
Musical selections include:
Once Upon A Time, Rocket To The Moon, It Ain't Right, Beer Run (extended), Eight More Miles to Louisville, I Need a Lover, That Lucky Old Sun, Ruby
