How to find us and listen to us

The St. Louis Banjo Club normally performs on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at the Concordia Turner Hall located at 6432 Gravois, St. Louis, MO 63116. We play from 7:30 to 9:30 PM.


There is a well-lighted parking lot and easy access for all patrons. Seating is at tables and although you may bring your own munchies, we ask that you purchase your soda, beer and wine at the bar.


We encourage you to sing and we project the song lyrics on the wall just like the old “Shakey” days.

The Fourth Thursday of March, April, June, July, August, September and October will find us at Schaflys Bottleworks. See the Calendar.

Banjo Picker’s Ball BOY

Click on the YouTube panel to the left. Part of interesting story of how the whole banjo craze became popular in the 1960s. From “Your Father’s Mustache”, “The Red Garter” and “Shakeys” came 100s of banjo players and 1000s of patrons, all wanting to sing the songs of the “Gay Nineties” and “The Roaring Twenties”. Enjoy this history of the banjo’s heyday!
