HOW TO GET YOUR TICKETS!

Demand for these shows are high and seating is very limited in this venue so its a very good idea to get guaranteed seats by getting tickets using the PAYPAL buttons on our HOME PAGE using the Paypal buttons under the poster.  100% of the funds go to pay the bands and their travel expenses. PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR INFO ON GETTING ADVANCED TICKETS.

 

WHAT ARE GUARANTEED RESERVED SEATS?

Reserved seats for The V.I.P. SECTION (first few rows right in front of the band) and GENERAL ADMISSION SECTION (on the outer perimeter - still good seats) may be purchased on this website via PAYPAL LINKS on our "HOME" page.  Because the venue has very limited seating, some shows sell out days or even weeks prior.  All tickets are non-refundable.  We thank you greatly for your support and for keeping high-quality blues healthy in Pasadena!

 

WHEN TO ARRIVE?

Your advanced tickets guarantee your seating reservations, BUT ONLY IF YOU ARRIVE BEFORE 8:00 PM or your seats may be given away.  All seats are at dining tables.  You may be communally sat at a table with other patrons, due to the limited size of the venue.   In other words, if your party has 2 people and we only have a 4 top table available, you may wind up sitting next to some cool new blues friends! 

 

PARKING

You will never have to pay for parking at BIG MAMA'S RIB SHACK!  There is tons of free street parking on all of the side streets after 6 pm.  So easy!

 

THE VENUE

Address: BIG MAMA'S RIB SHACK (1453 N. Lake Ave, Pasadena, CA 91104) is a cool little family-owned soul food restaurant just 1.5 miles north of the 210 freeway. Its very convenient and has a wonderful, down-home juke joint ambiance.  This is an ideal destination for blues music and soul food lovers for a Saturday evening!  Please do NOT call Big Mama's Rib Shack for blues concert info.  If you need more info about the concert please email us at pasadenablues@aol.com.  Or call 323-377-5291 anytime.

 

DINNER & DRINKS

Big Mama's Rib Shack serves food and drink and they rely on your business to stay afloat.  If you're coming for the Saturday night blues concert please partake in a few beverages or a meal and help us keep blues strong in Pasadena!  We ask for a $14.99 per person DRINK or FOOD minimum.  Warning: This is a Southern style mom and pop business and service can sometimes be quite slow.  We are working to speed things up, but patience is a must. 

 

SHOW TIMES

Show times may vary from week to week.  But generally audience seating begins at exactly (and not before) 7:00 pm.  The show begins at 8:00 pm and there are two 60-minute sets.  Your tickets are valid for both shows. But you must arrive by 8:00 pm to be guaranteed a seat.

EVENT PRODUCER

Blues producer, promoter, and musician, Cadillac Zack, has been presenting world-class blues since 1991, and he has managed, toured and performed with many of the world's greatest blues artists for over those 24 years.  He is very excited to have been asked by Big Mama's Rib Shack to bring his long-running, high-quality blues concerts to Pasadena every Saturday night and he can't wait to spend these evenings with you!
