ANNUAL MEMORIAL SHOW
WITH THE FLAMINGO Allstars
+ GUESTS: American harp star Steve Bailey as well as John O' Leary and Laurie Garman
The Annual Junior Wells
Memorial show was established on the 10th anniversary of his death (15/1/98)
when we realized the legendary Chicago blues harp player Amos Blackmore aka
Junior Wells (Muddy Waters/Buddy Guy/Magic Sam) wasn't being recognized by the
international blues community.
Five all star sell out shows later, we think we're well on the way to rectifying that omission.
‘He was one bad dude, strutting across the stage like a harp-toting gangster, mesmerizing the crowd with his tough-guy antics and rib-sticking Chicago blues attack. Amazingly, Junior Wells kept at precisely this sort of thing for over 40 years -- he was an active performer from the dawn of the 1950s to his death in Jan 98’ - Bill Dahl
