Late Night Blues With Uptown Saturday Nights

In conjunction with the 33rd Annual Chicago Blues Festival, UPTOWN SATURDAY NIGHTS returns with another FREE event on Saturday, June 11.  We are thrilled to host the Chicago Blues All-Stars featuring Jimmy Tillman on drums. 

40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR. Founded by Willie Dixon, CHICAGO BLUES ALL-STARS stand on the shoulders of giants the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy and others who created the Chicago blues sound. When the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Cream, The Animals, Van Morrison and others integrated Chicago blues into their recordings, the world heard us.
