American treasure and guitar legend, Buddy Guy is here to remind us that the blues are alive and well!
At eighty-two years old, this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has left his mark on the industry through his historic sound and influence on guitarists like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and John Mayor. His music style takes a unique spin on soul, rock and free jazz while remaining true to the heart of the blues.
Buddy Guy grew up in Louisiana where he crafted his very first instrument through stripping wires out of mosquito screens and stringing them tightly between two cans – the beginning of a long, successful career. Years later, Guy’s talent was discovered by Muddy Waters after performing at a club in Chicago.
Guy has been ranked on Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” and recently won the 2019 Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album which features Mick Jagger, James Bay, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience this timeless blues-guitar master!

“Guy was, and IS, the king. The hottest ticket in town, and for good reason.” – Chicago Tribune



Guitarist and song-writer, Jimmie Vaughan is known for his impact on contemporary culture and spearheading the revival of the blues. He has made guest-appearances on albums such as Bob Dylan’s Under the Red Sky and Carlos Santana’s Havana Moon.
His sound has been influenced by other iconic blue guitarists, like Albert King and B.B. King which helped develop Vaughan’s passion for his blues-influenced rock style. His music capitalizes on conveying his passion and rawness of the classic blues.



The deep sounds of Charlie Musselwhite’s electric blues harmonica have been recognized for years on end. As a singer and instrumentalist, Musselwhite has excelled, selling more than 20 albums after gaining prominence in the 1960’s.
In 2010, he landed a spot in the Blues Hall of Fame before touring with Cyndi Lauper, playing the harmonica on her hit album Memphis Blues. He has also jammed on stage with Mick Jagger and recorded with multiple diverse artists.
Shortly before winning the Grammy for Best Blues Album for their collaboration Get Up! he and Ben Harper played at the White House for President Obama and the First Lady. His journey through the blues have made Musselwhite living proof that great music only gets better with age.
