Inside Junior Kimbrough’s Juke Joint (A Pictorial Glance)

I am always fascinated by all that went on in Junior Kimbrough’s infamous Juke Joint just west of Holly Springs, Mississippi. I have been there several times over the years but all that remains is a wall of kudzu and a few beer can pull tabs beside the road.  I have captured quite a number of images of Junior’s Juke Joint back in the day. Some images are from the BBQ Shack in Holly Springs, MS. I would like to spearhead an effort to get a marker and a sitting area put in at the old location.

Below is a gallery of all the images I could get inside and outside of Junior’s Juke Joints. You will see many common faces including Kinney (Kent) Kimbrough, Duwayne Burnside, Gary Burnside and of course the many danced-up attendees at this American treasure.

Junior Kimbrough’s Juke Joint on Google Earth

Few people know that you can scrub back in time on Google Earth revealing all kinds of fun historical stuff. I even found Hitler's lair before we bombed it into oblivion (mess with the US and Allies and find out). I went through the years and found Junior's Juke Joint outside of Holly Springs, Mississippi. Here is a Google Earth breakdown. Enjoy.
