Farewell Good Friend -|
|Another great Bluesman who I have had the pleasure of working with, touring with over many decades has gone to Blues Heaven. Magic Slim was a giant in the world of Blues. His manager and my good friend, Marty Salzman have worked together on shows and Blues festivals. Paying tribute to him at the Mayne Stage in Chicago was one big family reunion. In the Blues community we are there for each other in hard times. The benefit concert featured the Teardrops, Magic Slims son. ||
Over 20 Blues musicians & singers including; Zac Harmon, Otis Clay, Billy Branch, Jimmy Johnson performed. Our set included Dave Specter, Melvin Smith, Shoji Naito and the powerful, Blues of Grana Louise.

Award-winning Bluesman Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater
-- He has traveled the world and has made a mark in the Blues industry, but he's performing for his home state Illinois audiences in July!
"With his powerful left-handed guitar playing, unique hybrid of West Side blues, relentless rockabilly and high energy performances, Eddy "The Chief" is Chicago's premier blues showman."
- Chicago Tribune
"Clearwater is equally adept at Chuck Berry-style guitar as he is at deeper blues style. He's a fine singer who puts on a wild, exciting show...the sort of exuberant entertainer who can turn a concert into a party."
- New York Times
"A focused mixture of T-Bone Walker cool and distinctly Chicago riffage...uncanny grooves... satisfying, funky."
