Tribute to Luther ‘Guitar Jr.’ Johnson at The Bull Run

July 20 @ 8:00 pm


Tribute to Luther ‘Guitar Jr.’ Johnson at The Bull Run Restaurant Saturday, July 20 at 8:00pm.

When Bluesman Luther “Guitar Junior” Johnson passed away at age 83 on Christmas Day, he left behind a musical legacy as long and wide as the Mississippi River from the Delta to Chicago. Johnson was best known for playing Chicago West Side Soul at the same time as Buddy Guy. By 1980, he was on his own, touring and recording three albums with The Nighthawks as well as four tracks on Alligator’s second series of Living Chicago Blues anthologies. His role in the movie ‘The Blues Brothers’ brought him world wide attention.

This show will include The Nighthawks, The Blues Express, some former members of The Magic Rockers, Frankie Maneiro and Mickey Maguire to bring some of Luther’s hit songs and grooves to life at The Bull Run, where he played so often and gave us his great gift of music and entertainment.

Doors open at 6pm for dinner and seating. Showtime is 8pm.
