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!

Saturday May 2 – Frank Bang & The Secret Stash – 9 pm

Bang’s musical journey began in his native Chicago. He was born in the Austin neighborhood into a music-loving household where everybody from Lou Rawls to the Village People shared time on the family’s turntable. Bang, whose actual surname is Blinkal, saw his first live music at the lounge where his mother waitressed. His father, a Chicago police officer, was initially disapproving of his son’s interest in playing guitar. But Bang persevered, and at age 16 bought a cheap six-string and amp that he was only allowed to play in the garage.
It was rock — everything from AC/DC to Metallica to Z.Z. Top — that caught his interest as a budding guitarist. But when Bang turned 21, he made his first visits to Chicago’s blues clubs, where he began to grasp that the genre provided the musical bedrock of his favorite artists. He also got a copy of the Johnny Copeland, Albert Collins and Robert Cray album, Showdown!, and was inspired by the furious interplay of the three blues guitar aces.
