SACRAMENTO-

The Torch Club in Sacramento celebrated its 80-year anniversary Sunday with a huge party and live music.

The Torch Club opened back in 1935 and used to be located on 6th and J streets.

In the '80s, the club became known as one of the best spots in the area for live blues music.

For the past 45 years, the Texeira family has owned the popular hangout spot.

"There's not a lot of businesses left in Sacramento that can say they've been here for 80 years," Owner Marina Texeira said. "So, I'm proud that I'm here today, and still, you know, running the business."

The Torch Club is now located at 15th and I streets, and they have live music there six days a week.
