BLUES | Buddy Guy 

*UPDATE: Buddy Guy's 9/29 show at Water Street Music Hall is being rescheduled. All tickets honored at new date (TBA). Refunds available at point of purchase.

Chicago blues pioneer Buddy Guy is 77 years old and still on stage schoolin' fools and kickin' ass. He's a legend that lives up to the title. The call-and-response style he has with his guitar is provocative and evocative. The man will make you move. Turned on by Muddy Waters, Guy landed in Chicago in 1957 and fell in with cats like Magic Sam and Otis Rush. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton are clearly disciples. The Grammy Award-winning Guy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. Not bad for a poor kid from Louisiana who got his start on a two-string diddley bow.

Buddy Guy plays Sunday, September 29, 7 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $45-$50.
