Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater, Lucky Peterson and Soul Sistaz ( 4th Annual Christmas Party )

Music Hall

December 8, 2007 7:00 PM

 

The Great Lakes Blues Society, in affiliation with Karma Productions is excited to announce an incredible blues show for the month of December. The December event for the Blues Society has always been one of our biggest shows of the year, and December 8, 2007, will be no exception. Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater is a versatile, flamboyant blues rocker from Birmingham, Alabama, by way of Chicago. For more than 50 years he has been performing, including, at a very early age, a stint with The Five Blind Boys of Alabama. By his mid-teens, however, he had moved from gospel to the blues, and to the city on Lake Michigan. Since then, through various bands and affiliations, Eddy has established himself as one of the very best in the game, both on record and on stage. He is a perennial nominee for the W.C. Handy Awards, and has won once for one of his earlier albums. He is cited by many as one of the most entertaining of all entertainers, in any musical field, and no longer has to be considered a blues artist working his way towards a higher recognition. He’s there! As a bluesman, Lucky Peterson has to be considered a fusion artist. He’s been a star since the age of three, when he played his first professional gig, and in the years that followed has played with, and been praised by, a who’s who of the blues. While still a child, Willie Dixon took Lucky under his wing, and within months the young prodigy had appeared on The Tonight Show, as well as Ed Sullivan. He split his teen years between playing the blues, and studying formal music on the French Horn. Thankfully, for our sake, the blues won out and everyone is more than excited that Lucky will be returning to London for the first time in many years on December 8th. Also appearing on their first “big show” gig for the blues society are The Soul Sistaz. Shari and Natasha Meister have been knocking the sox off of blues fans in London for a couple of years now as they’ve developed through a variety of identities including The Meister Sisters, and The Johnny Girls. They are now ready to unleash the purest form of their act and we all anticipate a massive reaction to these stars of the future. This show will be held at the Music Hall, 185 Queens Avenue, with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets for this premium event are priced at 30 dollars, or 20 dollars for members of The Great Lakes Blues Society, and are available at Tequilla Rose’s/The Music Hall, The Village Idiot and Westside Variety. Reserved tables are also available. If you wish to reserve a table, contact Brian Mortimer at 519-963-7247 or at brian@greatlakesbluessociety.com .
