Blues, brews and BBQ

By Olivia Bruns, Market Manager | July 18, 2017 | Posted in Around Town, Chicago, Dallas, Event Spotlights, Food and Drink, Houston, Las Vegas, Orange County

The perfect companion to summer heat and a cold craft beer, it’s no secret that blues is one of America’s favorite genres of summertime music. Originating in the Deep South in the late 1800’s and slowly permeating across the country, the smooth chords and soulful lyrics melt away those workplace woes and get listeners swaying with relaxation and coolness within the first few seconds. And, with more and more cities hosting renowned blues festivals, blues has been given increased exposure in unfamiliar areas, gathering fans along the way.

Sounding like a great way to add some flare to your next corporate event? We agree. It’s high time you replace the Top 20 tunes playing in the background of your corner club with the sounds of a talented live band at House of Blues (HOB). A high-profile venue for music aficionados in search of great acoustics, home-style cooking and delicious beer options, HOB offers a uniquely southern experience in numerous metropolitan areas across the country.

To make things a little easier, Kapow has joined forces with HOB to develop a few blues-inspired events—and we threw in some BBQ to sweeten the deal—that will make you look on trend. Check out some of your options below, and treat your co-workers or clients to an evening that will allow them to slow down and socialize in style.


Located in the heart of downtown, boasting a Texas-inspired menu and home to an ornate space for a large parties, this event is perfect for your next all-company outing or holiday soiree.


Help guests feel like VIPs with a private night in a swanky space. Book a cocktail event in the center of the hustle and bustle of Dallas and enjoy the Texas-inspired food stations.


Dinner and a solo performance? Yes please! Steps from the Loop and overlooking the Chicago River, this venue is the perfect place for an exclusive stationed dinner in the Foundation Room.

Las Vegas

Located in Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, HOB Las Vegas is the perfect stop on the Strip for craft beer, blues and a loaded tater tot station. Don’t forget to absorb the one-of-a-kind “juke joint” atmosphere!


Be some of the first patrons to enjoy an evening in the revamped House of Blues Anaheim. Make sure to grab a local craft beer and a plate of delicious hors d’oeuvres before finding your way to the updated performance area.

San Diego

From the exclusive entrance to the ornate space, every spot in the HOB will allow guests to relax in style. Mingle with clients while lounging and snacking in the Delta Room.
