Henry’s Blueshouse was started in 1968 by Big Bear Records founder Jim Simpson and became a stepping stone to fame by dozens of bands including Status Quo, Jethro Tull, Thin Lizzy and Judas Priest. American bluesmen and leading British rock and blues attractions, including Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, featured weekly there.
Now the legendary blues night is reborn at THE BULLS HEAD at 38 Bishopsgate Street, Birmingham B15 1EJ. For directions, click here.

Tipitina also represented the Royal Albert Hall when they performed at the West End Live Festival – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeJCB_KyHV4
