Shawn Holt & The TeardropsDoors open at 6:30 p.m.; showtime starts at 8 p.m.
When Magic Slim unexpectedly took sick and couldn't make the show, I did not hesitate to have the Teardrops carry on without him because Slim knows how to pick a band. They were opening for Johnny Winter and Johnny still wanted them, I still wanted them and the crowd loved them. A powerhouse Chicago blues band with Slim's son, Shawn at the helm. And the Blues carry on.....

In all the years I’ve been presenting acts, I’ve never heard so many people say, “this is the best concert I’ve ever seen.” I concur. What a night of music! People will be talking about this “Magic” night for a long, long time.
