LIL' Ed & The Blues Imperials

Posted Feb 27th, 2013 by Fred Pakulski  Category: Arts & Entertainment


Alligator recording artists Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, touring in support of their latest Alligator CD, JUMP START, will give a live performance at BGump’s 101 Restaurant & Lounge in Sylvania on Sunday, March 24, 2013. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned Chicago shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil’ Ed Williams and his rip-roaring Blues Imperials — bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton — deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues. Currently celebrating 25 history-making years together, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge. Recently, Chicago slide guitar hero Lil’ Ed Williams received two 2013 Blues Music Award nominations, one for Traditional Male Blues Artist, and one for his whole group, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, for
Band Of The Year. The group won the coveted 2009 Band Of The Year Blues Music Award, the same honor they received in 2007. In 2012, they were awarded the 2012 Living Blues Readers’ Award for Best Live Performer. The band won that same distinction in the 2011 Living Blues Critics’ Poll. Concert information is as follows:
