PHOTO GALLERY | Buddy Guy @ Legends 1/5/17

Photos: Howard Greenblatt

It's January in Chicago and that means Buddy Guy is back for his winter residency at his namesake South Loop club.

Howard was on hand with his camera to grab some great shots of the 2017 residency's very first night, Thursday, January 5th.  It continues each weekend in January -- Thursday through Sunday.

The octogenerian guitarist packs a blistering two hour set into each night, pulling out many of his trademark tricks and licks along the way.

Get there early.  It's all GA seating and there's a different opener each night, but BG's got the same great band including the fabulous Marty Sammon (a fine leader in his own right) on keyboards.
