Enjoy the sounds of Chicago Soul, Funk & Blues at four authentic south side blues lounges: visit the classic, gritty Big O Cocktail Lounge, which features veteran guitarist Killer Ray Allison & the Killer Band; get cozy in the funky Zodiac Lounge, where Super Percy & His Soul Clique holds down their regular Friday set; jump and shout with rising blues phenom Mz. Peachez, who hosts a weekly set at the historic Lee’s Unleaded Blues, which often includes local luminaries like Shorty Mack, and Brown Sugar; and the last stop of the night allows you to catch veteran blues diva Mary Lane, who hosts one of the hottest new blues sets at the “Route 66 roadhouse of the blues“, The Water Hole.
