The Belly Up Tavern avoids most of the late 70s and early 80s disco fever craze by sticking to blues and rock ‘n’ roll, however that does not stop them from making their first neon sign have a nod and wink to disco. Later another neon sign displaying the club’s logo will continue to shine in in the back of the bar just to the right of the stage. During the late 70s and early 80s greats like Etta James, Big Mama Thorton, Big Joe Turner, and Lightnin’ Hopkins (shown above) graced the stage at the Belly Up Tavern.
