Mike Reeves

A tribute to Mike Reeves, Atlanta restaurant and live music entrepreneur

Atlanta lost a true legend recently: Mike Reeves, an entrepreneur who made an everlasting impact on the local restaurant and live music scene. He not only co-founded Mellow Mushroom pizza restaurants and Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, but he was co-founder of some of Atlanta’s most iconic live music clubs: Cotton Club, the Point, and Smith’s Olde Bar. Tributes from co-workers, musicians, patrons, friends, and many others have been pouring in. Mike not only was a successful businessman, but more importantly, he was a champion of others, often sharing his expertise, and he was a generous philanthropist, always there to help those in need. We had the pleasure of having Mike on the show several years ago. And as a tribute to Mike Reeves, we’ll be playing excerpts of that conversation. Reeves shared restaurant start-up secrets and behind-the-scenes rock ‘n’ roll stories, including hanging with David Bowie and other legends.
