New Year's Eve at The Lookout Rooftop Bar

December 31, 2019 06:00 PM until January 01, 2020 01:00 AM

It's gonna be a Mardi Gras New Year's Eve on the Rooftop featuring the legendary Big Al & The Heavyweights from New Orleans!

Tuscaloosa's premiere rooftop bar is the ONLY place to be on New Year's Eve! We will be all decked out NOLA style with themed party favors, live music, champagne toast and a midnight breakfast buffet.  

Big Al and The Heavyweights began in 1992 as the Unknown Blues Band with founding members Warren Haynes and Al Lauro. The two met performing in country outlaw, David Allan Coes Band. They quickly found a common interest; their love of music, especially the blues. Soon they put together the U.B.B and began performing at small clubs and festivals. The band began getting notoriety for their lengthy sets and their ability to fuse their many musical influences into a powerful brand of blues.The band started opening for many acts, including B. L. T., which included Dickey Betts, Chuck Leavall, and Butch Trucks. Dickey Betts was truly inspired by Warren's incredible guitar prowess and soulful vocals and offered him a gig in a band he was putting together. Naturally, Warren took the gig and the rest is history. He went on to become a major force in The Allman Brothers Band in which he currently plays as well as his own band, Gov't Mule. As for Big Al, he had lost an incredible guitarist and vocalist but never a friend. The only thing left to do was to move on and that he did; putting together a new band and landing a record deal with Scott Mullins' Rollin and Tumblin Records to create Big Al and The Heavyweights.
