Great great night last Thursday, July 11. Joanna Connors on the north stage and an incredible bluesman on the main. Does anyone know who that bluesman was? I truly want to pick up some of his releases.

The Kingston Mines warrants another trip from Vancouver to Chicago just to hang all hours of the night and morning. The staff were great, the mostly young white crowd were enthusiastic and full of soul. It is so fantastic that the blues is alive and well in all communities of the great city of Chicago.

This blues bar had great music, was large and roomy inside, and was just great fun! We will definitely be back here! It was just a short cab ride from the water tower area.

Walked a bit to find this blues bar but was worth the stroll. The music was fantastic and the atmosphere was amazing. If anyone goes to Chicago and loves blues this a must visit place.

I have been to this bar a few times, as my daughter lives very close. They have two stages for bands- mostly blues bands but they also play a lot of rock and roll. Very relaxed atmosphere - the owner wonders around and talks to the patrons. Can get very crowded- goes late at night. A lot f fun if that is what you enjoy. Cover charge but worth it.

We found this and were so happy we did! Enjoyed fantastic live blues music by The Mike Wheeler Band! It was such a fun evening and a must on your Chicago to-do list!
