Kevin Geraghty is back in LoDo. After being out of the game for a number of years running his own software company, the former owner of Brendan's Blues Pub is back to doing what he does best, bringing in and spotlighting the best blues music to town. "We're putting the band back together," says Geraghty of stepping in over Blues On Blake Supper Club (1925 Blake Street) and tapping some familar faces from his former staff to pitch in, including fomer barkeep Brian Handlos and former GM of Brendan's Geno Cherenzia. During the mid to late '90s at its original location on 16th and Market, Brendan's was a hub for the blues -- or home of the blues, as it called itself. In the early part of this decade, Geraghty and company moved down the block to an old pawn shop on the corner of 20th and Larimer that it subsequently renovated and re-opened under the Brendan's moniker. Geraghty eventually closed up shop and the space was rechristened as the Marquis Theater, its current name. Stop by Blues On Blake this Friday at 8 p.m. to say hello to Geraghty and gang and then stick around to catch a 90-minute set from Samuel James.
