Description

Join Rodney Brown, Michael Peavy, Bill McFarland, and Hank Ford of the Chicago Horns in a tribute to the great Chicago blues saxophonist, Eddie Shaw, who passed away in January 2018. The tribute will include members of Howlin’ Wolf’s legendary Wolf Gang, of which Shaw was bandleader and a long-time member. Guitarist and Wolf Gang member Eddie “Vann” Shaw Jr. will also be in attendance to celebrate the life and legacy of his father. It will be a night of music and conversation in honor of Shaw’s unique style and illustrious career, and in recognition of the role brass played in the rich history of the Blues.
