Any discussion of Buddy Guy invariably involves a recitation of his colossal musical resume and well-earned accolades. He’s a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a chief guitar influence to such rock titans as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound and a living link to that city’s halcyon days of electric blues. If that weren’t enough, he has received six Grammy Awards, twenty-three W.C. Handy Blues Awards, Billboard magazine’s Century Award for “Most Distinguished Artistic Achievement” and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone has even ranked Buddy in the Top 30 of its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”.
Former prodigy instrumentalist, Jonny Lang topped Billboard’s New Artist chart with his first album at age 15. Today he stands as a mature creative force made more sensitive yet also toughened by life’s adventures. Jonny has learned what it means to rise above hard times and to find meaning where chaos seemed to rule. His latest release, Turn Around is considered the pivotal album of his career to date … a passage that links the triumphs of his past to the promise of his future. The album went on to win Jonny his first Grammy Award. Don’t miss Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang when they’ll be performing at Boulevard Casino’s Red Robinson Show Theatre on September 28, 2012.
