Chicago has been a blues music hub for almost a century. The Chicago sound was perfected here by local greats such as Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon, Koko Taylor, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Champion Jack Dupree, Etta James, and so many more. The blues is not only an irreplaceable part of Chicago's past, but also adds a thriving pulse to its present, with live blues music happening every night throughout the city. In addition, the annual Chicago Blues Festival continues to attract thousands of blues enthusiasts from all over the world for three full days of free live blues. The Chicago blues dance scene is extremely excited to welcome bluesSHOUT! attendees to our city!
