Willie Big Eyes Smith with his harp joins Pinetop Perkins

Matthew Skoller shows the crowd that Chicago blues harp is far from dead

Nino Louden's first appearance after a serious accident showed us that this former Koko Taylor ax man is back in business in a serious way

Willie Big Eyes Smith seems to have given up drums for harp; he sounds great and sang up a storm

Brother John and Band- he's great on guitar, keys and vocals

Nick Moss is one hot guitar player- he was one of the evening's highlights

Billy Branch gave us some outstanding harp and vocals and introduced us to two great new female vocalists- Tracee Adams and Nellie "Tiger" Travis
