Jimmie Vaughan

Jimmie Vaughan is a founding member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds and has been a longstanding lead guitarist out of the ’70s and ’80s. He is known for being one of the most influential artists for paving the way to open up the gritty sub-genre of Roadhouse blues and R&B. With more than 10 albums under his belt and four Grammy Awards, Vaughan has been wowing crowds with his incredible talent and gritty vocals for years. 

Charlie Musselwhite was born with the blues in his heart and knew he had a propensity for soul at an early stage. Since the early sixties, Musselwhite has been recording and performing blues, with his first album, Stand Back! Earning rave reviews with the counterculture of the time. Fifty years later, Musselwhite is living proof that musical talent ages like fine wine when it comes to him. Throughout his career, he has released more than 20 albums, been nominated for 13 Grammys, and has shown that he is a living legend in the blues community.
