WATCH: Chicago guitar great Lurrie Bell making very special appearance at Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays show/webcast from Aces in Bradenton

UPDATED 5/17: I don't think in my decade of writing about music have I ever seen a place so packed on a Monday as Aces Live in Bradenton last night.

The great Lurrie Bell — making a very special appearance at Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays — rocked the house as did the Damon Fowler Group, who were then joined by Bell.

Here are the links to see for yourself:

It has been nearly six months since the debut of Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays at Aces Live in Bradenton.

I cohost the webcasts, conducting the mid-set interviews, and can honestly say I look forward to the event every week.

But this Monday should prove especially memorable with special guest Lurrie Bell.

A legend in his native Chicago, he's one of the greatest blues guitarists alive.

Seriously, I'd put Bell up there with Eric Clapton, etc.

Bell's an emotive vocalist, as well.


Bell has lived an amazing, poignant life. Read the compelling (definitely not your typical PR-fluff) "Lurrie's Story" from his official website.

Blind Pig recording artist the Damon Fowler Group will also be performing, making this a must-see Monday night event.

Did I mention it's free?

See ya there — I'm stoked — or watch the webcast.
