2020 TBBF 728×90


Sure, everyone is excited about the Chicago Blues Festival in Grant Park later this week. Why not? It is a chance to see some of the best blues artists on the planet. Just a few steps away, across the street, Buddy Guy’s Legends club is hosting “The Other Blues Fest.” What could be better than seeing blues giants and emerging stars performing in this historic venue?
