The original Juke Joint was opened by D.C.’s Grandmother Miss Lura in 1936 when D.C. was one year old. It was the Cozy Corner, and despite a fire and needing to rebuild from the ground up in the early 60s, stayed open until her death in 1968. D.C. was born on this spot! When he moved back from touring for 30 years with his wife/ bassist/dream buddy Selby they reopened the place as the Down Home Blues Club in 1988. Soon it was too small, and the couple enlarged the place to twice it’s original size by 1991, in time for the first Rentiesville Dusk til Dawn Blues Festival …700 people came, 7 bands and Little Johnny Taylor was the headliner.

   Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
 – Marjorie Moore Besides that, when you volunteer you have more fun because you get to meet people like you and be part of the action — Selby
