Featuring Buddy Guy
and Dr. John and the Lower 911
Without the blues, there is no jazz!
Buddy Guy is a five-time Grammy winning blues legend, whose unique, wailing electric guitar sound has influenced virtually every major blues and rock guitarist, from Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan. While his music originated in the Chicago blues school, Buddy’s playing has transcended that genre, creating a style that defies categorization.
Dr John is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. After a half century of creating music, Dr. John continues to write, arrange, produce and interpret with a passion that has yet to wane. His 2008 album, “City That Care Forgot,” which deals with post-Katrina New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, won the Grammy Award for “Best Contemporary Blues Album and is considered to be his finest recording in twenty years.
