Buddy Guy's Legends Celebrates its 20th Year

The South Loop has changed a lot over the past 20 years, but one thing remains consistent, great blues at Buddy Guy's Legends (754 S. Wabash). The club remains a popular spot for locals, tourists and even some of the worlds best musicians:
As soon as the doors opened, Buddy Guy’s Legends quickly drew a celebrity crowd with Guy’s friends eager to get on stage. Special guests have included Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Stones, Eric Clapton, David Bowie and B.B. King. The Legends stage has also been a launching pad for up-and-coming talent like Derek Trucks (the Allman Brothers), who first played at the club when he was 13. Guy has said time and again that he owns his club to keep that burgeoning talent coming in, vowing to keep the blues alive and strong.
In honor of the anniversary, the club will have drink specials and giveaways during the month of June. We also wanted share that the official 20th anniversary party will be held on Tuesday, June 16th. We're not sure about the details, but if you can somehow go, it should be fun!

The other thing we recently found out is that people who live in the 60605 zip code don't have to pay cover Sunday through Thursday (excluding special events on those days). Simply show up with a drivers license, ID or bill with the 60605 code and you can enjoy a good time and some great music.

In case you don't know about Buddy, here is an old classic:
