Po’ Monkey

This is Willie “Po’ Monkey” Seaberry. He is the owner of the infamous Po’ Monkey’s Lounge in Merigold, Mississippi. Po’ Monkey’s is one of the last rural juke joints in the country and has been standing since 1963. Willie is a kind and gracious host who runs a tight ship at his Thursday night parties. To see what his place looks like from the outside, follow the link here.

    1. It was so great to meet him after all this time. Glad to hear about the museum. People seem to be visiting the Delta more and more and I’m glad more museums are in place to welcome them and boost the local economies.
