Founded in 1997 by blues legend John Lee Hooker, the Boom Boom Room was once a sultry, steamy place for locals to get down to some of the country's best blues acts. Today, the club still hosts a range of blues, boogie, and soul bands, but it’s got a little less roots and little more funk and jam-band, which tends to attract a slightly younger, lighter crowd. But with its red walls, photos of famous musicians, candles on the tables, and checkerboard floor, the Boom Boom Room is still a groovy place for the blues.
