My Photographic Journey Around America

Gip’s Place

This is inside Gip’s Place, the last of the real Alabama Juke Joints, and the last of the real Juke Joints that I wanted to be sure I visited before they’re gone. That’s the man himself down in front, just shy of his 97th birthday. If you’re ever in or anywhere remotely near Bessemer, Alabama on a Saturday night, you should definitely seek it out.

    • I was so happy to finally get out there. He was such a gracious host and seemed to be having as much fun as anyone. I wish I’d seen him play, but was just grateful to see the place.
