[11/26/12]   This is at the Bayou this Thursday.

This Thursday, we are hosting a benefit to raise some money for folks affected by Hurricane Sandy. A bunch of great bands have volunteered to perform including The Chris Dukes Band, Holly and Evan Blues Duo, Pat Giola, Vontus and The Ameros. We also will have a silent auction with gift certificates and goods donated by local businesses and restaurants.

Like many others, we have a bunch of fri...ends and family who have been effected by Hurricane Sandy. We will be providing a complimentary food buffet and will be donating 50% of beverage sales to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Suggested ticket price for the event is $10 dollars and if you can give more, even better. 100% of ticket sales and the silent auction proceeds will also go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

If you own a local restaurant or business and would like to provide something for the silent auction and have not already done so, it's not too late. It's the Holiday season people. Do something to help those who lost so much and eat, drink and listen to some good music at the same time.

Hope to see you all on Thursday!

[11/06/12]   All of you who use to have your holiday party at Jill's The Bayou Cafe down the street can acomadate all different sized parties. The bayou can offer a private room with a full bar and stage with very competitive pricing and all kinds of food and drink options. Call 426 8550 for details. Or comment here and some one will get back to you!

Come out Thursday or Friday or Saturday night or come out for all of them. It's the only place to be for Halloween this year.

And get a room for $109 at the Holiday Inn Express and get wristbands to bypass the line and pay no cover charge.

[09/14/12]   If you guys miss Timbre Coup from Jill's make sure to catch them tonight at The Bayou Cafe

[09/12/12]   Hey friends. Jillian's of Albany here. Anyone coming out for Pearlapalooza next Saturday? The main stage will be in front of the Bayou this year. It is going to be the biggest Pearlapalooza yet with headliners Matt & Kim. WEQX will be broadcasting live from the stage at the Bayou. Bud Light Specials all day.

In other news, many of our Jillian's people are popping up at bars all over Pearl Street. Our former staff are making things happen at PSP, Legends on Pearl and at the Bayou Cafe. Support live music and support Pearl Street. Come to Pearlapalooza and have a drink at Bayou, PSP, Blue 82, The Merry Monk or LOP.

Oh yeah, there is another spot I didn't mention. I'm not sure if it's still called Figure 10 or not but the former Tai Lounge/Figure 10 or Buddha Bar is also open on Pearl Street and will be a part of Pearlapalooza.

[09/07/12]   Come to the Bayou tonight. The Chronicles are playing in the front bar as a part of the Jazz festival competition from 6 to 9.

Doors for the back bar open at 8 for a great night of original music featuring Titanics, Black Taxi and Wild Adriatic.

Do it.

[09/03/12]   Come to the Bayou in Albany.....this week is the first original rock Friday this week....welcome wild Adriatic, black taxi, and the Titanics to the Bayou! Doors 8pm show starts at 9! Trying to continue the Weqx rock shows, jam shows, and all that good music we were doing at Jillian's to the Bayou!

[09/03/12]   Come to the Bayou in Albany.....this week is the first original rock Friday this week....welcome wild Adriatic, black taxi, and the Titanics to the Bayou! Doors 8pm show starts at 9!

[08/30/12]   Hello all. Yeah, we are still around just haven't had much to talk about lately. Wanted to thank the person or people who came over and cleaned up our alley.

Lots of crazy stuff going down on Pearl Street lately. Another place with great live music closed down earlier this week when Savanah's shut it's doors.

Help keep live music scene alive on Pearl Street! A lot of great shows coming up at the Bayou and of course Pearlapalooza is coming up fast. This saturday Bayou has an old Jillian's favorite the Square Pegs playing.

In the coming weeks at the Bayou we will have Eastbound Jesus, Timbre Coup and Wild Adriatic. Trying to keep Live and original music going on Pearl Street. Like the Bayou on Facebook or check out the website for more info on shows!

[08/11/12]   Anyone coming out tonight? We've got some old friends coming back to pour some drinks and members of 2 of the areas best bands coming together to send us off.

[08/10/12]   Wild Adriatic performing a free show tonight at Jillian's.

Check out a free show with one of the areas premier bands one final time tonight at Jillian's of Albany.


[08/08/12]   So that last post got a little crazy so I decided to take it down. Like us or hate us we are saying goodbye on Saturday.

If you do like us, try to stop down between Thursday and Saturday.

Thursday night will be the last Pearl Street Live of the season and probably ever. Aquanet will be performing in the street and DJ Show will be providing the music inside.

I don't think we have any bands or entertainment on Friday but that could change if anyone has any good suggestions.

Saturday will be sure to be weird and fun and probably a little sad. On the main floor, the music will be provided by some of our favorite bands over the past 5 years. I like Moxie. I wanted Moxie for the last night. They broke up a few years ago and we couldn't get them to reunite so we did the next best thing. We invited our friends the Chris Dukes Band and Rocco and the guys from Funk Evolution to play a few songs. If you have never heard Mike Thomas and Chris Dukes sing together, well you might never get to hear them sing together because they are weird around each other, but they will both be in the room and probably a little drunk so it could happen and it usually sounds pretty fantastic.

Before I move on to the other activities for Saturday, I want to say thank you to our sound guy Tony. Shane provided us with some awesome bands and Tony made them sound great. If you see Tony on Saturday, buy him a beer because he is the man.

Anyway, the nightclub will be open and we've invited back some old friends to pour some drinks one last time. We've also invited back some special guest DJ's. If anyone talks to DJ Dread tell him he's invited also. He disappeared a few Thursdays ago and he won't return my messages.

OK, that's about it but there is one last thing. If you have ever been to Jillian's nightclub then you have definitely met Dennis Heller. He's been at Jillian's since day 1. Not day 1 of our regime, but day 1 in 1999. He is by far the most loyal Jillian's employee and a super great guy. Dennis last week accepted at job with another former Jillian's employee, Charlie, in Saratoga. We need to convince Charlie, facebook name Charles James, to find someone to fill in for Dennis in Saratoga so he can be with us, where he belongs on Saturday. Everyone message Charlie and convince him to do whats right.

Hope to see you all on Saturday. Most of you anyway.
