"..Muddy Waters recorded a song called 'The Blues Had a Baby and They Named It Rock and Roll.' That, in a nutshell, is the story told in the new documentary 'Born in Chicago' — how he, Howlin’ Wolf and other black blues musicians working in Chicago in the 1960s schooled young white acolytes from that city who went on to play on some of the most influential pop recordings of the era."
- Larry Rohter/NY Times
Film will be followed by a question and answer session with a number of the film's principal musical players. Thereafter, Chicago Blues Reunion, the band that includes Barry Goldberg, Nick Gravenites and Harvey Mandel, with Rick Reed and Gary Mallaber will perform a full concert in the hall. It is anticipated that the band will be joined by some special guests who are also seen in the film.
They will rock you with their blues.
