This story was featured in the PD on April 11, 2010. So I invited a few friends, picked up my hillbilly momma and off we went. Curbside Coffee Shop, located at 9858 Lorain Avenue on the Westside of Cleveland, phone 440-823-3849 is a hot spot for good old fashioned hillbilly music done right. These old timers sure know what they are doing.
Our first visit was on Tuesday night, which is known as "Bluegrass Music Night." With the Bluegrass Kings doing their gig, they had the crowd hopping. Standing room only, the place was packed with good old fashioned hillbillies. Southern hospitality from the moment you step in the door until you are on your way out the door. The owner, Judy, came right up to us strangers the moment we walked in the door and greeted us as if we were part of their hillbilly family.
The gentlemen quickly jumped out of their seats and offered their seats to the ladies. Handshaking, nodding, hugging and plenty of smiles for all in attendance.
The talent of these musicians is outstanding. Everyone in the crowd was either dancing, footstomping, clapping or singing.
The musicians playing their guitars, banjos and mandolin, can really get the crowd going. Several people were dancing and a good time was had by all.
An eight year old young lady, Kalli Harmon, also sang for the crowd. She was amazing. I believe she is going to be the next Loretta Lynn.
Guy and Yogi were also hillbillies for the night. Yogi was doing the hillbilly stomp and Guy was doing what he called a "two step." But I think Guy made this dance up as I lost count at 44 steps, and to be honest he kinda looked like a bird flapping his wings.
Our second trip back to Curbside Coffee Shop was Thursday, which is "Country Music Night." Our buddy Mike, who is the 88 year-old yodeler, told me they only like traditional country music. The good old fashioned country music that I refer to as classic country, which is also my favorite.
During Mike's yodeling, Yogi began yodeling as well and had the entire crowd laughing. Also attending this event was another realneo member, Angelinward14. She was all smiles and told me that this was the best time that she has had in a long time.
The only pay that these fine hillbilly gentlemen receive is a cup or two of coffee. The musicians are attempting to help the owner keep her business open in these hard economic times.
The owner, Judy, has a picture of her father on the wall. She told us on Tuesday that her deceased father would be so happy to see the crowd in her coffee shop.
Judy and the rest of the hillbilly crowd can count on seeing us again!
We had a wonderful time on both nights and plan on going back again soon. I have to admit that the bluegrass music on Tuesday nights is my favorite. But Curbside Coffee also has karaoke on Saturday nights.
The events officially begin at 7:00 p.m., but often the musicians get ahead of themselves and start playing around 6:30 p.m. The music ends at 10:00 p.m. There is no cover charge to attend this event. Buy a cup of coffee and enjoy the music.
