Isaac Tigrett was raised in Tennessee and learned to love the soul of the Deep South. Along with Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers), Tigrett founded the first House of Blues in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1992. House of Blues is an homage to the Southern way of life and features live music, delta cooking and original folk art. Celebrating African American culture and the South with a musical and artistic setting is the goal of each House of Blues. Unique art showcases historical events from the South with "Crazy Quilt" stage curtains that symbolize the Underground Railroad's role in helping slaves escape to freedom. Every House of Blues has a box of Mississippi mud underneath the stage so that performers will feel the spirit of the South beneath them while they perform. House of Blues Houston has seen many varied performances, including Bob Saget, Owl City, Deadmau5, The Used, Robin Trower, Damien Escobar, Ice Cube and Buckethead and will continue to showcase unique musical talents.
