Description: A technically brilliant heavy rock band, British outfit Uriah Heep has sold over 30 million records and enjoyed five Top 40 albums in the U.S. What the band deserves the most credit for, however, is continuing despite almost 30 personnel changes over the course of its lifespan. David Byron first formed the group with Mick Box - the pair had teamed up in the Stalkers during the mid-'60s, and after the group broke up they assembled Spice with Paul Newton and Alex Napier. Spice evolved into Uriah Heep (the name taken from the Dickens novel David Copperfield) when Ken Hensley joined the band. Before long, the outfit was bonded under the experienced management of Gerry Bron.
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. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
