ABOUT THE ARTISTS
An epic night of blues music as venerable Chicago label Delmark Records celebrates its 70th anniversary with three prominent, internationally-known Delmark recording artists.
First, the original driving houserockin’ blues, boogie and soul of Dave Weld & The Imperial Flames hits the stage with guest artist, harmonica player Pierre Lacocque, who leads his own band Mississippi Heat.
Then, the versatile Mike Wheeler Band delivers “old school for the new century” (Blues Blast), joined by singer and Blues Music Award nominee and recent winner of the Jus' Blues Foundation's Koko Taylor Queen of the Blues Award, Demetria Taylor.
The evening closes with the “global ambassador of Chicago Blues” (Chicago Sun-Times) Dave Specter Band with Chicago and Delta roots guitarist/singer-songwriter Jimmy Burns.
