National acts such as Honey Island Swamp Band and Webb Wilder have performed, but this local eatery also has a ton of love for local musicians. In fact, Legacy Bar & Grill has created a specialty-drink menu that features libations inspired by local musicians. The Sugarcane Jane is a strawberry lemonade and vodka explosion. The Cary Laine is a blueberry martini just as sweet as its namesake’s voice. The Holli Mosely is a dirty martini highlighted by blue cheese stuffed olives. In addition, patrons can sample drinks names after Lisa Mills, Eric Erdman, Ryan Balthrop, Ross Newell, Julie Anne Sellers and Lee Yankee. As far as big shows in the future, Legacy Bar and Grill will be bringing Telluride to its stage Sunday, Sept. 20. This show is a ticketed event, and tickets are close to selling out.

Something new from the streets
Two local hip-hop artists have been busy creating new material, and the Azalea City will soon get a taste of the new sounds. Beamin is best known as one-half of the duo Beamin and Timmy. Beamin ventured out on his own with a solo album, “Crown Goggles,” which can be downloaded free from his website, onlybeamin.com. Now, he is getting ready to release his follow-up album, “Not Your Average Hillbilly.” Judging from Beamin’s previous work, “Not Your Average Hillbilly” should be glutted with rapid-fire verbal delivery set on a foundation of infectious beats.

With a background featuring work with SubjecTmAtTerS and Mob Towne Revival, Josh Schock has remained a constant on Mobile’s hip-hop scene. Schock has been working with local engineer/musician Brian Graves on new material and giving fans samples through rough cuts on social media. Schock is known for his unique lyrical rhythms and his trademark baritone voice. On a track called “Follow Through,” Schock slides his lyrics across a sample of smooth jazz. “Double Up” contrasts with an upbeat cadence Schock easily conquers. Find him on Facebook under “After Schock.”
