Average White Band (AWB for short) is widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though perhaps best known for its timeless instrumental mega-hit "Pick Up the Pieces," the band's strength actually lies in its consistently accomplished songwriting, stretching across several Gold-selling albums and multiple Grammy nominations on the legendary Atlantic Records label. Despite its name, the band is far from average, being one of the few white bands to cross the color line and achieve success playing its own fiery brand of funk.
Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair.
