Delmark's Kevin Johnson has been in touch to let me know of the following event:
To celebrate Delmark and Bob Koester’s 55th year in the music business, I am excited to announce that we’re throwing a special all-star tribute concert with a who’s who of Chicago Blues on Friday, March 7th at Buddy Guy’s Legends. Delmark artists and friends Dave Specter, Byther Smith, Jimmy Dawkins, Tail Dragger, Jimmy and Syl Johnson, Little Arthur Duncan, Shirley Johnson, The Big DooWopper, Zora Young, Aaron Moore, Lurrie Bell, Michael Coleman, Eddie Shaw, and many more special guests (Friendly Chap?!) are scheduled to perform so far! This can’t miss milestone tribute concert will also be videotaped for future broadcast on satellite television. We are also planning a commemorative Delmark CD compilation for our 55th Birthday. I hope you can come join us at Legends for this well deserved party for the Delmark family; if not, stay tuned for another Delmark tribute concert at the Old Town School of Folk Music in the fall!
