Buddy Guy & The Damn Right Blues Band are hitting the road in support of his new album ‘The Blues Is Alive And Well’. On June 28, Guy and his band will be making a stop at the Weesner Family Ampitheater at the MN Zoo in Apple Valley, MN.
George “Buddy” Guy is an American blues guitarist and singer. He is an exponent of Chicago blues and has influenced eminent guitarists including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck and John Mayer. In the 1960s, Guy played with Muddy Waters as a house guitarist at Chess Records and began a musical partnership with the harmonica player Junior Wells.
Recently, Guy was ranked 30th in Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. His song “Stone Crazy” was ranked 78th in the Rolling Stone list of the “100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time” and Eric Clapton once described him as “the best guitar player alive”.
In 2015, Guy received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Buddy Guy’s incredible career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include 7 Grammy Awards, 37 Blues Music Awards, Kennedy Center Honors, NARM Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement, Billboard Music Awards’ Century Award for distinguished artistic development, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.
His latest Album ‘The Blues Is Alive And Well’ was released on June 15 and features guest appearances by Mick Jagger on “You Did The Crime,” Keith Richards & Jeff Beck on “Cognac,” and James Bay on “Blue No More.” Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge produced the album. The new album is getting great reviews and promises to be another hugely popular offering from Guy.
Don’t miss out on a chance to see the blues legend outdoors and in an intimate venue. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the show starts at 7:30 pm.
