As one of the last remaining legendary Chicago blues players, Buddy Guy is a performer who epitomizes a very specific era in the city's musical history, when juke joints were an essential part of local nightlife. If you've never caught him playing at his eponymous Chicago club, you know what to expect: Screaming vocals, blazing guitar solos and a few random expletives. At Ravinia, Guy is joined by blues vocalist Shemekia Copeland and rock act Blues Traveler—a band best known for its hit song "Run-Around" that was probably added to lineup simply because its name contains the word "blues."
