We all know that Myrtle Beach, south Carolina is considered a golfer’s paradise. But it’s also a paradise for food and music lovers. It’s a place where music and food truly do feed the soul. And no single musical event in Myrtle Beach, if anywhere, is so completely nourishing at every level as Kirk Franklin Presents Gospel Brunch at House of Blues in Myrtle Beach.
A Sunday morning institution at House of Blues clubs across the country since the 1990s, Gospel Brunch at House of Blues rose to new heights after supervision was entrusted to Franklin, the seven-time Grammy-winning Gospel artist. Franklin, generally regarded as one of the greatest and most influential Gospel musicians ever, personally oversaw the revitalization of the popular choral experience. A noted singer and producer—a bestselling performer both as a solo artist and in association with groups such as The Family, Nu Nation and One Nation Crew (or 1NC)—Franklin upgraded and standardized the quality of performances at all Gospel Brunch venues.
After almost two years of work behind the scenes, the rebranded “Krik Franklin Presents Gospel Brunch at House of Blues” debuted in 2013. Franklin has an ability to recognize and bring out the best in talent is especially apparent at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach. While the updated Gospel Brunch has been a hit at all locations—Anaheim, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Orlando and San Diego, Franklin’s stewardship has been transformative at Myrtle Beach. The heartfelt passion and musical craftsmanship of the local performers have create a gratifying Gospel experience for you every Sunday even as you also enjoy a satisfying Southern buffet menu.
That menu includes chicken and waffles, fruit, scrambled eggs and an omelet station, salads, sausage and bacon, biscuits, gravy, jambalaya and more, not to mention rich desserts and bloody Marys. The variety should surprise no one who’s familiar with the restaurant-bar-musical venue’s everyday menu: Fish, burgers, salads, steaks, and ribs and other Southern-inspired favorites.
But food is obviously only part of the reason House of Blues remains so popular in Myrtle Beach among local residents and visitors alike.
