SF JAZZ presents An Evening with Buddy Guy

  • 2025 Broadway Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

Screen Shot 2017-12-10 at 12.08.33 PM.png

BUDDY GUY - An ace session player for Chess Records throughout the 1960s who backed Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson and Koko Taylor, this blues guitar legend came to define second-generation Chicago blues with his wildly exuberant performances and incendiary guitar playing. His influence was profound across the Atlantic, where British blues lovers like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page absorbed his style. A testament to his lasting influence, Guy received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 GRAMMY awards and was a 2005 inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Buddy Guy remains an iconic force on guitar whose incandescent solos reveal the searing, uninhibited soul of the blues. [More]
