Buddy Guy's Legends has become as celebrated as its namesake for providing Chicago with the highest quality blues talent to be seen anywhere. From the Monday jam sessions to the constant flow of world-class talent weekends, Legends is a required stop for soul-stirring Blues and barbecue. Chicago Blues Jam brings you a slice of this legendary stage, with interviews and commentary by Buzz Kilman.
Lonnie Brooks: Known for his "Voodoo Blues" style, which fuses the Bayou sounds of the Opelousas, the swing of Texas, the soul of Memphis, and the power of Chicago blues. Today, Brooks can sometimes be seen with sons Ronnie and Wayne in a 3-guitar onslaught. Just one of many shows at Legends, Brooks lights up the stage here with his powerful, charged guitar style.
Studebaker John & The Hawks: This Chicago native picked up the harmonica at age 7, and got hooked on the blues in his early teens because of the corned beef sandwiches on Maxwell Street. Enjoy this Chicago fixture who has developed into an accomplished guitar and harp player, as well as an excellent songwriter.
