House of Blues Sunset, in West Hollywood
House of Blues Sunset, in West Hollywood

House of Blues (HOB) is a chain of music halls and restaurants founded in 1992 by Hard Rock Cafe founder Isaac Tigrett and his friend and investor Dan Aykroyd. It is a home for live music and southern-inspired cuisine, whose clubs celebrate African-American culture, specifically blues music and folk art. The charter HOB in Harvard Square which opened its doors on Thanksgiving Day 1992 has since closed (although the original hands-in-concrete driveway still remains on the property). Jim Belushi is also closely associated with the enterprise and is present at most openings. On July 5, 2006, House of Blues was purchased by Live Nation, the world's largest live entertainment company.

Blue Room Art and Furnishings (489 words)
The color blue was introduced during the administration of Martin Van Buren in 1837; he redecorated the oval salon and began the tradition of the "blue room".
A renovation and refurbishing of the Blue Room was initiated in the early 1990's by the Committee for The Preservation of the White House and completed in mid-1995.
