The Deep Ellum neighborhood of downtown Dallas, TX has been tied up with music for over 75 years. Originally a center for industry, this then mostly-black part of East Dallas gained nationwide acclaim as a hotspot for Southern Blues in the 1930s. Later, Deep Ellum would become home to artists and musicians from many different styles and backgrounds, including a lively Punk scene in the 1980s. But if you want to recapture the dirty-Blues feeling of old, look no further than DE for a great range of clubs. Clubs come and go, and one that was recently closed was a great source of local blues: The Bone.
For over 25 years The Bone had been serving up stiff drinks and hot Texas Blues from the heart of Elm Street. Guitar Shop TV was lucky enough to make it there on a recent trip to Dallas and we were blown away by what we saw and heard. Check out this gritty performance by local rock guitar legends Rob Hunt and Tony Black.
