The Worldwide West Side Guitar Man, Blues Music Award nominated, and Delmark recording artist Johnny Burgin will hold his Oregon CD release party at Lake Theater & Cafe. He will perform with his West Coast touring band and special guest Rae Gordan, who can be heard on Burgin’s new CD.
Johnny started his career in the rough and tumble neighborhood blues joints on Chicago’s West Side with Howlin’ Wolf disciple Tail Dragger, and went on to tour and record with blues legends such as Pinetop Perkins, Sam Lay, and Billy Boy Arnold. Praised for his “stunning guitar playing– the pure Chicago styled sound”, his take on the intense, stripped-down “West Side sound” of Otis Rush, Magic Sam, and Buddy Guy.
