Blues on the fox june 18-19

Fyi...


BLUES ON THE FOX JUNE 18-19


Blues on the Fox, the intimate and free Blues festival hosted by the City of Aurora, Illinois, celebrates its 14th anniversary with an exceptional entertainment lineup on Friday, June 18th and Saturday, June 19th as part of the summer-long Downtown Alive! Festival Series. The festival will take place at the intersection of Galena Boulevard and Stolp Avenue (“Blues Alley”) in downtown Aurora along the scenic Fox River.

Southern blues/rocker Tinsley Ellis kicks things off on Friday at 6:45 p.m. followed by Trombone Shorty. Trombone Shorty, touted as one of the most exciting acts on the blues festival circuit will bring his unique show-stopping New Orleans act to spice up Aurora.

At 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, the Hix Brothers Junior All-Stars will kick off the day and this year will feature an all-girl Blues band. Last year, several of the students performed with Los Lobos, the 2009 festival headliner. Chicago blues performer Guy King and his Little Big Band will take the stage at 3:00 p.m. followed by the searing guitar shredding of Ronnie Baker Brooks, a Blues on the Fox festival favorite. Next will be Joined at the Hip featuring Pinetop Perkins and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith with special guests Hubert Sumlin and Bob Margolin. All four gentleman were part of Muddy Water’s band, and have performed at the BOTF in the past. Rounding out an outstanding line-up will be national guitar hero Jimmie Vaughan who is also known as the guitar teacher and brother of Stevie Ray, and former leader of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Jimmie will be preparing for an appearance at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival so brace your self for an outstanding performance. Performances end at 10:00 p.m. on both evenings.

Each year the City of Aurora celebrates the rich music history of the RCA Bluebird recordings that were made in the 1930’s at the Leland Hotel (now Fox Island Place) in downtown Aurora. In the famous Sky Club, literally hundreds of songs were recorded by John Lee ‘Sonny Boy’ Williamson, Tampa Red, Big Bill Broonzy, Big Joe Williams, Roosevelt Sykes, Yank Rachell and others. These recordings were groundbreaking and set the tone for the early urban Blues that later became so popular and formed the backbone for modern day Rock ‘n Roll. The Blues on the Fox festival commemorates these recordings.

The historic Aurora downtown acts as a very pleasant backdrop to the two-day festival that includes not only great music but fantastic food, icy libations, music vendors and a relaxed atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy.

It's a fun event. Ronnie Baker Brooks rocks! If you go tell Daryll the keyboardist I say hi. If he's still with them. Been a while.

When I was doing sound engineering for a local band, Daryll used to come out and jam with them on Wednesday nights and other select events. I also used to do concert photography and went to tons of concerts and blues events around the country.

Ronnie, Lonnie, Wayne, and Daryl were all very nice to me. I've shot all of them at different venues.

One of my favorite memories was when I was waiting in the wings of the B.B. King concert in Tinley Park. Ronnie and Wayne Baker Brooks walk by. I said hi and asked how long they were going to be back there. They were going to visit their dad and B.B. Security sees us talking, comes over and escorts them out

They didn't stop to get their credentials and the staff had no idea who they were. So when they finally got back in, I flashed them my credentials and told them they needed to be cool like me. They both laughed because we all knew they were just passing through to go hang with B.B. King in his dressing room.

Joke was on me I guess. But all good guys.

If you ever need something to do on New Years Eve, Ronnie's shows at Chord on Blues are AWESOME.
