Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials
Fresh on the heels of Lil Eds release Heads Up, the Chicago bluesman brought all his hard-rocking glory to the Jubilee stage.
The music goes through me, and it brings out the happiness in me, says guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Lil Ed Williams. Once I feel it, Im gonewild and crazy! From smoking slide guitar runs to raw-boned Chicago shuffles to the deepest blues, the five-foot, one-inch Lil Ed and his blistering, road-tested band, the Blues Imperials, get wild and crazy every time they hit the stage.
Between their wonderfully raucous music and Eds flying leaps, duck-walking through the audience, and slides across the stage on his knees, its no wonder the Boston Globe called Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials the hottest purveyors of bottleneck boogie to come out of Chicago since Hound Dog Taylor.
