Bluz at the Bend is going out of business at the end of the month

Don Parkins and Maryanne Snyder, owners of Bluz at the Bend, have tried to sell their north Spokane club for months.

No one has made a decent offer, and the two have announced the business will close at the end of the month.

Uncle D's Comedy Underground, which has been operated by Parkins, will stay in business.

The music venue's final show will be April 25, featuring a retirement party for Parkins, with a performance by bluesman Sammy Eubanks.
