Eat with a beat as steakhouse Bar + Block in Birmingham launches Summer + Music, an exciting series of live performances from acclaimed local musicians, taking place throughout the summer. Launching on Thursday 22nd July, the restaurant and bar will transform into a buzzing music nirvana, hosting a roster of talented musicians every Thursday and Sunday, that can be enjoyed alongside Bar + Block’s signature food and drink menus which are sure to hit all the right notes.
In association with local music promoter Brumbeat, a series of nine local musicians/songwriters will take to the stage for live acoustic performances at Bar + Block every Thursday evening from 8pm to 10pm, and Sundays from 4pm-6pm.
The talented line-up will include the award-winning Ben Drummond, who has supported the likes of Bryan Adams and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the smooth country pop sound of Dan Roberts from the band Grafton Ash, BBC Introducing artist Esther Turner, and Sammy Rogers whose combination of 60’s, New Wave and Brit-pop covers from across the decades is certain to keep everyone dancing all night.
Getting the party started, delight in a mix of contemporary covers and classics, plus some of the artist’s original songs, and enjoy the spirit of summer with tipples from Bar + Block’s extensive list – from wines and craft ales to creative cocktails.
On the launch of the music nights, B+B Brand Manager Susan Pollard comments “As a Birmingham local myself, I’m delighted that we are bringing such strong programme of talent to Bar + Block, showcasing our beautiful restaurant and bar. We are excited to provide a stage for the great, homegrown musical talent our city has to offer.”
Mark Butler, Founder of Brumbeat Music Ltd, says “We are excited to be working with Bar + Block on their summer music setlist and have created a really strong line up of seriously talented young performers. This is a fabulous opportunity to work with a variety of local talent, with set-lists including the classics alongside some of their own original songs.’
Watch the musicians in action with a drink in hand, and dive into a menu of quality steaks, succulent burgers and a host of grills, salads, sensational sides and sharing grazing plates.
Sundays will take a more chilled beat, offering the perfect destination to unwind for the weekend with a pint or glass of wine, and tuck into The Sunday Best roast, where you can choose from sliced rump or half a chicken served with Yorkies and all the trimmings.
With live music running from 22nd July to 29th August, what better way to enjoy the summer than with great food, drinks, live music and a whole heap of fun. Make sure to book your front row seat, with the full line-up of performances below.
