Danny "Mudcat " Dudeck is the heart of the present day Northside Tavern, in the '80's Danny proposed a Blues format to Ellyn Webb, the owner and the result is Atlanta music history. Northside Tavern is now a meeting place for countless musicians and bands. Danny's style is rooted in Piedmont Blues but it's still undefinable. Danny also appears every month on the weekends with his band and the Atlanta Horns. Already an elder to the Atlanta Blues and Roots scene, Danny is tireless promotor of great live music. His "Give It Back”, "Chicken Raid" and "Northside Mentor" shows are highly anticipated and feature some of the finest artists of local and national fame. (Photo by Tim Duffy)

The Breeze Kings formed on a Thursday night at the Northside Tavern in 1997 and are now one of the busiest and most respected bands in the Atlanta music scene. Their many accolades include being TEN time winners of Creative Loafing’s Best Blues Band in Atlanta award and a top 10 finish at the 2005 International Blues Contest in Memphis TN. Their ‘dance floor filling’ music is an exciting and authentic blend of 50’s and 60’s era Chicago and Delta blues styles and is sure to impress both blues purists and those new to the genre. The band has released four CD's on Atlanta's Veritone Records label and performs non-stop all over GA, the USA and Europe. Just one visit to the Thursday Night Blues Party at Northside Tavern and you’ll know.
