Father of the Chicago blues sound, Buddy Guy is one of the most influential musicians of his generation. In the 1960s Guy was a member of Muddy Waters' band and was a house guitarist at Chess Records. He can be heard on Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" and Koko Taylor's "Wang Dang Doodle" as well as on his own Chess sides and the series of records he made with harmonica player Junior Wells.
Ranked 30th in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time", Guy is known for his showmanship on stage: playing his guitar with drumsticks or strolling into the audience while playing solos.
Every January the local bluesman, six-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll and Roll Hall of Famer, returns to the stage at his bar Buddy Guy’s Legends for a month long residency. You can catch Buddy Guy every Thursday – Sunday this month.
