The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy will perform his Chicago blues at the SugarHouse Casino Event Center on Friday, April 20, at 9 p.m.
Guy is one of the most important blues singers and guitarists of all time, and will be forever associated with Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and John Mayer.
Famous for Chicago’s West Side sound, Buddy Guy is known for altering the direction of the guitar in his music. He has won 37 Blues Music Awards for his unique interpretation of the genre, and was ranked 23rd in Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Guy earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums for his latest studio record, “Born To Play Guitar,” as well as his first double disc release, “Rhythm & Blues.”
No stranger to the top of the charts, Guy has received seven Grammy®Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Grammy® Award and a Billboard magazine Century Award for his unparalleled style. His unconventional use of the instrument has inspired various guitarists, from rock legends Hendrix and Clapton to the acoustic genius of Mayer.
Guy has performed alongside legendary artists through Chess Records, such as Waters and Wolf, before recording as a solo act. As one of the final surviving connections to the blues’ musical evolution, Guy continues to keep the legacy of the electric blues alive by creating and performing his music around the country. His newest album, “Blues Is Alive And Well,” will be released later this spring.
