With his trademark, tortured vocals and rip-roaring fretwork, Buddy Guy has become one of the biggest names in blues history. In his illustrious career, he’s won six Grammy’s been named the 13th Greatest Guitarist of All Time by Rolling Stone, and been hailed as the unrivaled king of Chicago blues.

Buddy was joined by Quinn Sullivan, the 12-year-old blues phenomenon featured on Oprah and The Ellen Degeneres Show.

During his performance, Buddy Guy went into the crowd while playing guitar and walked to the back of the room out the doors and upstairs to the dress circle (3rd level) where he played and spoke to the crowd.
