Lil' Ed And The Blues Imperials Perform At Nightfall Sept. 2

Thursday, August 11, 2022

Chicago blues masters Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials will perform as part of the Nightfall outdoor concert series at Miller Plaza in Chattanooga on Friday, Sept. 2, at 8 p.m. 

Review for Lil' Ed And The Blues Imperials:

The Big Sound Of Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials is the band’s most recent Alligator Records release. With almost 35 history-making years together, Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor's edge. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil' Ed Williams and his Blues Imperials -- bassist (and Ed's half-brother) James "Pookie" Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton -- deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues.

Ed guested on TBS Television’s Conan, with Conan O’Brien proclaiming Lil’ Ed as “the man who taught me to play the blues”. The band is a two-time winner of the coveted Blues Music Award for Band Of The Year. They received the Living Blues Award for Best Live Performer three times in five years. In 2017 they were named Blues Band Of The Year by Blues Blast Magazine.

Admission to the concert is free.
