WHEN? Sunday · May 3
I was a little undecided about which blog to put this on. But I did want to mention a good choice for reasonably priced entertainment on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, particularly when the weather is nice.
We've only mentioned Big Daddy's on the Fish River once on this blog, along with quite a few other restaurants we had tried since we settled in Lower Alabama, on the post Sho'nuff fine dining on February 12 of last year.
We really did not go for the food on Sunday afternoon. We saw in a local publication that there was live music there. We had some adult beverage and mixed in some fried crab claws between us, but the live music was really good.
Randy Branch played the guitar and hormonica and sang. Some of the songs were written by him and are on the CD Long Black Car on his website at Poppaskeeter Music, while other songs he sang were written by other songwriters and musicians.
On Randy’s MySpace you can listen to three of the songs on the CD. It looks like he is really quite busy performing locally, and apparently he can also help you with your real estate needs.
Big Daddy's has a street address of 16542 Ferry Road, Fairhope, with access by boat from the Fish River. The Big Daddy's website gives good directions, but once you know where Ferry Road turns off of CR 32, you won’t have any trouble finding it the second time. Those with boats in the area don’t have any trouble finding it once they come into the Fish River out of Weeks Bay by just following the river upstream.
This Sunday afternoon, several people had brought their dogs, so it reminded us some of Pirates Cove in that respect.
We took a few photos you can view at Live Music at Big Daddy’s.
