NIGHT AT THE FULL MOON SALOON

From 1977 – 1993 the Full Moon Saloon was the place to hang in Key West and Listen to the music of Bill Blue and the Nervous Guys or the Survivors. These two iconic Key West bands sometimes alternated weekly gigs. The Moon was dark, the AC and the beer were always cold, and the music was the best in town. The crowds were mostly locals and included the famous and some of the infamous. When they moved from United Street to 1202 Simonton (current location of Camille’s) Jimmy Buffet opened the new venue and returned to sit in often. It closed July 18, 1993 - Bill Blue and the Nervous Guys played music until 2pm the next day.

Join us along with Bill Blue and the Nervous Guysand Din Allen and the Survivors to relive some of those raucous days when smugglers drank with customs agents by night and eluded them by day.
See old friends, enjoy the music of the Full Moon Saloon with two of Key West’s greatest bands.
