Heartwood Soundstage


Two-time Grammy nominated artist and American blues legend John Primer was the bandleader and guitarist for Muddy Waters and many other legendary Blues performers.  John Primer’s personal accolades, including a Lifetime Achievement Award, reflect his countless contributions to the history of Chicago blues. There are very few fans, critics or musicians who will deny the fact that John Primer is the real deal.

Opening the show and keeping the Chicago Blues theme intact is our own Little Mike & the Tornadoes. Little Mike & the Tornadoes is well-known for its flawless, high-energy blues sound, modeled after the great Chicago bands of the ‘50s. Little Mike is a mean harmonica player who cut his teeth in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s, backing up legendary Bluesmen Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmy Rogers, and was mentored by Paul Butterfield. Blues Blast magazine called them “old-school Blues delivered the right way by folks who feel it down to the core.”
