B.B. King 

When: Wed., April 9, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $45-$80.50
At 82 years old, the renowned king of the blues, B.B. King, is still going strong. Sure, blues music has changed since he started in the late ’40s. Artists such as Eric Clapton and Robert Cray have popularized the genre, but B.B. started it all and influenced nearly all the artists from that era. His style of minimalist guitar solos is rarely heard anymore because it can be considered boring at times in this world of ever changing sounds and instruments. But B.B. remains the King because he knows when to step back and let his band take over. Performances today still have that infectious humor he exuded on stage back in the ’50s as well as the same quality blues. For the avid blues fan there is nowhere else to be. (William Hoffman)
