Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Buddy Guy is a major influence on rocktitans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. He has received 6 GRAMMY Awards, along with a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”
JOHN KAY & STEPPENWOLF
Best known for the classic-rock staples “Born to be Wild” and “Magic Carpet Ride,” Steppenwolf is ready to kick up a night of rock history. In the chaotic world of rock 'n' roll, in which the lifespan of most bands can be measured in terms of a few years or a few months, John Kay & Steppenwolf have emerged as one of rock's most enduring and respected bands, delivering hard-hitting, personally-charged music for more than three decades. At last count, the band's worldwide record sales exceed 25 million units, including 8 gold albums and 12 Billboard Hot 100 singles (6 were Top 40 hits).
