Legendary guitarist and vocalist Guitar Shorty is a giant in the blues world. Credited with influencing both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Guitar Shorty has electrified audiences for five decades. Shorty’s blistering, physical guitar playing and his fierce vocals truly connect body and soul. Amazon.com says his guitar work "sounds like a caged tiger before feeding time. His molten guitar pours his psychedelicized solos like lava over anything in his path." The Chicago Reader declares, "Guitar Shorty is a battle-scarred hard-ass. He slices off his phrases and notes with homicidal fury. He is among the highest-energy blues entertainers on the scene." Through the years, Shorty has performed with blues and R&B luminaries, including Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, B.B. King, Guitar Slim and T-Bone Walker. He began playing with these legends while still in his teens, and since then, his recordings have received widespread acclaim. His 2004 Alligator Records debut, Watch Your Back, became his best-received, best-selling album to date. His 2006 follow-up, We The People, won the coveted Blues Music Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year. Be sure to purchase your tickets early and hit the Big Room dance floor.
