He may be on stages at the RAWA Festival in Poland or Muddy’s Club in Germany, but he loves to entertain at his annual birthday bash just over the border at Evanston’s, SPACE where all his neighbors and friends come out for a good time.

  BB - Our Whole Blues Community Misses You

“BB was so amazed when he saw me get up on stage and play with Muddy Waters. BB came up on stage to play with us and he gazed at me and then asked me..... how do you play that left handed and upside down’ —That evening was one of the greatest moments of my life playing with my two mentors and guitar heroes. They both told me, just keep on practicing and remember to always be humble and give your all to the audience. I have carried that philosophy with me all of my life and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.”
