ABOUT US

 

Chicago Blues Guide is a complete guide to Chicago’s current blues scene. The Guide section contains listings for Chicagoland’s blues clubs, bands, radio shows, record labels and links. The webzine features plenty of photos, news and features on what’s happening in the home of the blues, including interviews, events, DVD and CD reviews, and live blues reviews.

 

 

Mission Statement

 

Chicago Blues Guide is run by contributors who volunteer their time and talent because they love the blues. Like the Blues Brothers, we’re on a “mission from God” to keep the blues alive and well in Sweet Home Chicago…World Capital of the Blues.

 

Our goal is to promote and preserve Chicago’s blues music and culture in all of its forms, from traditional to contemporary blues, soul and R&B.

 

We strive to unite Chicago’s blues community and to connect with blues fans all over the world who share our enthusiasm for the city’s great blues music and heritage. We also hope to inspire a younger listening audience for the next generation who will enjoy and carry on this worthy musical tradition that is, indeed, the root of nearly every form of music that is popular today.

 

As the late, great Muddy Waters once said, “The blues had a baby, and they named the baby rock and roll.”

 

 

Motto

 

Every day is a good day for the blues!
