Po' Monkey's - An Authentic Blues Juke Joint

Po' Monkey's is one of the last original surviving authentic homes of live blues music. This information is from the New York Times, 5/19/13, at p. 10, in an article by Alex Crevar on a handful of surviving juke (prob. Gullah for disorderly ) joints. Its owner, Willie Seaberry, 73, has run the joint since he was 16. It is just off of the legendary Highway 61, and online you can find a photo of a real historic marker, as it is a part of the Blues Trail. Apparently, it has no real address, but in one article on the Web, someone said he saw an envelope there addressed to 420 Poor Monkey Road. I got these coordinates from Wikipedia - 33° 49' 54.192 N, 90° 45' 30.24 W .
