They opened for business there in August 2005, setting up the main music room and the adjacent El Bohio restaurant and bar. Within a year, the venue established itself as one of the Lowcountry’s major live music venues, hosting a wide array of artists. They soon expanded with a sizeable deck outside.
Next weekend, the Harrises and their staff celebrate yet another successful year with a two-night party. North Carolina world-beat act Toubab Krewe will headline on Sat. Sept. 3 with support from the steel pan-driven Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. Acoustic combo Reckoning plays an assortment of Grateful Dead faves on the deck stage that evening. On Sun. Sept. 4, the celebration continues with an encore performance from Toubab Krewe and an opening set from Chicago-based folk-rock octet the Giving Tree Band.
