Chicago Blues Guitar Summit with Jimmy Dawkins, Jody Williams, & Billy Flynn.

3 world-renowned Chicago Blues guitarists in one night. Jody Williams and Jimmy Dawkins are two of the main architects and masters of the famed, Chicago West Side sound that features that wild and eerie, minor key guitar that has influenced so many. Billy Flynn is the torchbearer of that sound and is the glue to countless blues bands today and has an encyclopedic blues mind and diverse repertoire. He has been backing Jody and Jimmy for years, and knows their unique styles like no other.

Jody Williams - Jody's impressive guitar can be heard on many '50's/'60's Chess recordings with Bo Diddley, Billy Boy Arnold, Howlin' Wolf, including his own instrumental masterpieces, "Lucky Lou!" and "Moaning For Molasses"

Jimmy Dawkins - Dawkins has one of the most distinctive guitar sounds of all - a heavy, dark, slashing sound that is like no other. He has many influential recordings in his long career, including the killer late '60/early '70 albums on Delmark Records, Fast Fingers, All For Business (with Otis Rush,) and Blisterstring

Billy Flynn - Flynn has led his own band since the 80's in Wisconsin and Chicago and can be found making so many bands better. He currently is the lead guitarist with countless bands, including Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, the Cash Box Kings, and the Special 20's. He was the guitarist creating the famous Chess sound in the popular recent movie on Chess Records, Cadillac Records. He can also break out a mean blues mandolin, harp, and sitar!!
