Founded years ago by St. John’s Steve Simon, the 4 p.m-7:30 p.m. island-wide meet-up draws locals, cruise shippers, campers and everyone else to gather around the BB’s four-sided bar. Good times, good conversations, new friends make it the place to be at least once when you’re visiting.
PS … there is now a Beach Bar theme song … hear it on the Web site, www.beachbarstjohn.com.
Steve Simon has turned over the Beach Bar to Jazz VI, partly because he’s doing more and more to evangelize the blues around the world. He’s just announced he’ll be producing the first annual Charleston Blues Festival in February. Performers include Shemekia Copeland, Zac Harmon, aka ‘The Soul of the Delta’, and Billy Gibson, aka ‘The Prince of Beale Street.’
