Upcoming Dates

Hideaway Restaurant & Lounge
Mark Dew - 8 pm
5900 Arsenal Street
Saint Louis, MO
314-645-8822
Price: free

To walk into the Hideaway is to enter a place that seems frozen in time, where the dozen or so seats around the piano are packed with your grandparents' friends, decked out in chunky jewelry and tilted fedora hats. Ostensibly, they're here to listen to Mark Dew play — he's here Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights — but you're just as likely to hear one of those old-timers sitting around the piano trill Charlie Rich's "The Most Beautiful Girl." And when Dew finally has his turn at the mic, he'll say something humble, like, "I apologize; it should have been in the key of F." No matter. Dew is the conductor of this time-traveling train, and everyone's on board. Dew, who is blind, has been the piano man here for nearly a quarter-century and jokes that the best part about working here is, well, getting paid. He marvels at the younger set trickling in and its knowledge of the Cash and Sinatra songbooks: "The more the crowd gets into it, the more I play," Dew says. And that's enough to keep him around. "I'm not quite ready to be out to pasture," he says. "Yet." free

Bob “ Bumblebee” Kamoske

After four decades of live gigs, “The Bumblebee” still plays every set like it was his last.

City, country, fingers, picks, or slide, Bob lays down the foundation of all American Music: The Blues.

Chicago shuffles, bluesy swing, and country twobeats merge like the mighty Missouri and Mississippi Rivers just above the great music city of St Louis, Missouri.

Whether pickin or slidin on his old National Resonator or Silvertone electric, the music explodes, seduces and grooves.

Witnessing Bob’s dangerous guitar and passionate vocals for the first time, even he most cynical of listeners sit back and muse: I guess the Blues gonna be alright.
