Auction Details

Po' Monkey's Lounge


Dates
Starts: Thu, Sep 27 at 6:00 PM US/Central


Head Auctions & Realty is honored to have been chosen the auction to auction one of the last true juke joints in the world, Po Monkeys. According to Willie “Po’ Monkey” Seaberry he opened a juke joint at his home in this location in 1963. Seaberry (b. 1941) worked as a farmer and operated the club, where he continued to live, at night. By the 1990s Po’ Monkey’s was attracting a mixed crowd of locals as well as college students from Delta State University and blues aficionados in search of  “authentic” juke joints. The dramatic décor both inside and outside the club also attracted attention from news outlets including the New York Times and noted photographers including Annie Leibovitz and Mississippi’s Birney Imes, who featured the club in his 1990 book Juke Joint. Despite such notoriety Po’ Monkey’s in many ways continued to typify the rural juke joint, furnished with a jukebox, a pool table, beer posters stapled to the walls, and Christmas lights strung across the walls and ceiling. 
 
Head Auctions & Realty will be offering the personal property ( all the contents inside the juke joint and the signage inside and out ) for one money. The real estate will nor the building itself will be offered for sale or auction. I repeat the real estate will not be offered for sale. Individual signs or individual personal property will not be offered for auction or sale. This auction is all for ONE MONEY.
