Seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winner and Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy and five-time GRAMMY® nominee Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band will be performing at The Amp on Saturday, May 15, 2021.
In a career that spans more than 50 years with more than 50 albums released, the incomparable Buddy Guy was inducted into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, adding to his list of more than 30 awards and accolades. His latest album “The Blues Is Alive and Well”, released in 2018, says it all. The legendary blues artist’s eighteenth solo LP showcases his raw and unadulterated sound; its’ fifteen tracks a true pleasure for aficionados and genre newcomers alike.
There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it’s played in service to an entire genre. Utter the phrase “young blues rock guitarist” within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. The Louisiana born axe man and songsmith has sold millions of albums while throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past and forging ahead with his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens.
