Band to play in Pfiffner Pioneer Park

Chicago blues masters Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials will perform at Pfiffner Pioneer Park at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 27.

Newly inducted into the Blues Foundation’s Blues Hall Of Fame, they will give a free performance as part of the Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series.

“The Big Sound Of Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials” is the band’s most recent Alligator Records release.

With almost four decades together, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge.

Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil’ Ed Williams and his Blues Imperials – bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton – deliver riotous, intensely emotional blues.

The band is a two-time winner of the Blues Music Award for Band Of The Year. They received the Living Blues Award for Best Live Performer three times in five years.
