Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials
Saturday, August 13th – 8:00PM-11PM
In Chicago, a city overflowing with unrivaled blues talent, world-renowned Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials have been standing tall for almost 30 years. The band’s big sound, fueled by Lil’ Ed’s gloriously rollicking slide work and deep blues string bending, along with his rough-edged, soulful vocals, is as real and hard-hitting as Chicago blues gets. The Chicago Reader says the band’s music “is a soundtrack for dancing and celebration infused with a sense of hard-won survival.
The evening also features variété between sets, followed by late night dancing with DJ Ryan Ross.
