Isaac Tigrett and Dan Aykroyd founded the first House of Blues in Cambridge in 1992 in a converted historical building. Tigrett, raised in Tennessee, brought his love of everything Southern to the venue, which is filled with lively music, great food and original folk art. Each House of Blues pays homage to Southern living and African American music and culture. The "Crazy Quilt" stage curtains that are displayed in every House of Blues symbolize the Underground Railroad, a passage of freedom for slaves before emancipation. Mississippi Delta mud resides in a box under every House of Blues stage so that performers can feel the spirit of the South under their feet. The art on display in the House of Blues is a collection of folk, outsider and self-taught artwork that is known as "Visual Blues." Performers at the House of Blues in Cleveland have included Tom Odell, Overkill, Andy Grammer, Badfish, Raven Black and other musical artists.
