Ace's Live Music

Dear Loyal Patrons and Music Lovers:
Ace's Live has temporarily closed! It has permanently closed "The Barn" at it's current location. The building and land has been sold to another company and it will no longer be used as a music venue, restaurant or bar. The Ace's Live team has been in negotiations to relocate the bar, restaurant and music venue to a new location in the Bradenton area. We had hoped that the relocation deal would have been completed by the time of the land sale. However, more time is needed. Upon re-opening, Ace's Live will continue to be the leader in live music with a full liquor bar and kitchen, hosting the very best in national bands on a regular basis, along with great local talent. Please check back to this website and our Facebook page for further details on our future location. Thank you again to all of you for your tremendous support over the past 15 years and we'll see you soon!

Friday March 1 – Jeff Strahan Band – 9 pm

Jeff Strahan Band

$5 Cover

Finally. A musician who hasn’t asked me to find them a lawyer.

Jeff Strahan, aka Jeffrey V. Strahan Sr. (pretty lawyer-esque sounding name, huh?,) is a former trial lawyer turned full time musician. He knows Texas law and if it’s something he doesn’t know, he knows how to find the answer, so don’t mess with him. But he really just wants to be a performing musician now, …..and has wanted to do so all of his life, so now, that’s what he is doing. “It’s rewarding to be able to be an artist and play music, and difficult to be truly happy doing anything else.” That’s a truth that most artistic folks will have to agree with.

Since 2002, Jeff has recorded 6 CD’s of original music, including a live album with 22 tunes that comes close to reproducing the energy that you feel when you’re watching and listening to Jeff Strahan live. His latest CD, (Wayward Son, Squaw Peaks Records) is probably his most diverse and strongest studio album to date. He masters the Stratocaster along with the best of them and does equally well playing keys. Sometimes he does both at the same time. When asked to describe his music he calls it “Music that doesn’t suck. – A blend of soulful-country-blues-rock-and folk.” Most people will agree – it doesn’t suck. It’s even pretty good. In some instances, real good.

In an apparent attempt to hide any signs of his former career, Jeff Strahan wears his hair so big it makes Lyle Lovett’s former hairdo look like a crew cut. Not that Jeff is ashamed of being a lawyer, but that was his old life. Now he makes music full time, playing all over Texas, with frequent tours to other parts of the United States, combining his stage training from law school with his natural ability to connect with the audience. Throw in a thirst for writing songs that he can play in front of people, a spirituality that has guided him his whole life, and the intelligence to make it all come together, and you’ve got an Americana act that translates around the globe.
