Buddy Guy is returning by overwhelming demand after his back to back sold-out performances at the Center for the Arts!
At age 78, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city's halcyon days of electric blues. He has received five Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W.C. Handy Awards), the Billboard magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone ranked him in the top 30 of its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
"Guy's earthy vocals were perfectly accompanied by his raw, emotive guitar style... The septuagenarian had plenty of flashy tricks up his sleeve, sometimes playing his Strat with a drumstick, soloing one-handed, or playing with his fingers curved around the fretboard." - The ExaminerFind Prepaid Parking
