Jenn & Franco
KNUCKLEHEADS BAR & GRILL
Who are you?
Jenn’s the boss n Franco is the head dishwasher at the club. We’re a blues oriented, biker friendly, bar dedicated to bringing quality music back to the people at a neighborhood level without financial considerations. We believe that with good music, one should enjoy good food and Jenn makes the best food around!! (ok, I may be bias- F-) Further, we feel that good music & good food brings good people, which is our catch-phrase: “GOOD MUSIC, GOOD FOOD, GOOD PEOPLE”. Many of our patrons ride motorcycles, as do we, and while the public at large may feel intimidated seeing all the bikes as they walk or drive by, once through our threshold they quickly feel at home. We’re proud to share a positive, none-aggressive, homelike, family atmosphere with all our clients.
What do you do?
We enjoy our music, help the public as we can, including hiring the homeless to assist cleaning and providing benefits for those in need and an ear for those alone.

What is your inspiration? (Why do you do what you do?)
Continue watching the daily pressures lifted from the shoulders of our patrons, if just for a little while, as they relax and enjoy
