“Raw Blues and Cajun Cookin'”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I miss all the original Chicago Blues Clubs, so Buddy Guy's Legends is as good as it gets for an accessible blues club where I can hear raw blues and eat some fine cajun cooking. I like lunch hour because it reminds me the most of blues musicians playing because they love playing and a crowd who like to watch and hear music being made. It's fresh and it's a great way to duck out of the rat race mid-day.
