When the best of Australian blues players come together to play the songs of Muddy Waters it is something that you have got to see.

Chicago blues is the foundation of Rock'n'Roll. So if you like your 60s and 70s rock or just about any kind of music with a soulful backbeat then it is true to say that it came from Chicago Blues. Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and even Led Zep served up for large doses of music that had borrowed from Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon.
