Next Wednesday, Jan. 12, at Buddy Guy's Legends at 700 S. Wabash, the longtime Chicago blues band Lil' Ed and the Imperials will perform at a benefit for the Dempster Family Foundation... and they'll be joined on guitar by Cubs reliever Justin Berg. From the press release:
Berg, 26, is a native of Antigo, Wis., and an accomplished guitar player who can also bang on the drums in his spare time.
The event is also in honor of the 40th anniversary of Alligator Records and the 25th anniversary of Vine Line, the monthly magazine of the Cubs. Showtime is 9:00 p.m.; tickets are $15 and all proceeds from the event will benefit the Ryan and Jenny Dempster Family Foundation. The night will offer a silent auction, as well as a live auction featuring autographed guitars supplied by Sam Ash music stores.
