Some of the performers that have graced the stage over the last two and a half decades include blues hall-of-famers: Frank “Son” Seals, Lonnie Brooks, and the “Queen of the Blues,” Koko Taylor.<br /><br />Tonight’s headliner is Big James and the Chicago Playboys. "Big James” Montgomery got his first taste of the blues when, as a young teenager, he would stand outside of a club on the Southside of Chicago and listen to B.B. “Big Voice” Odum sing with Billy Branch and The Sons of Blues. Eventually he was allowed to sit in with the band and as the old saying goes, “The rest was history.”<br /><br />The opener is LaJa’ and the Jazz Blues Band. Born in Mississippi and raised in Chicago, world renowned, singer and songwriter, LaJa’s neo-soul blues sound is the next evolution of the blues music genre which ensures the art form continues to entertain traditional blues fans and educates a new generation of music lovers.<br /><br />So come ready to eat, relax and/or dance the night away as we pay homage to this legacy of Chicago blues music at UIC! <br /><br />Use the hashtag: #UICBHM2015 to show us your UIC Black History Month experience.<br /><br />For more information on this event, please visit http://www.campusprograms.uic.edu or contact Jessica Adam at jvadam@uic.edu.<br /><br />If you have a disability and need accommodations, please call 312-413-5070.<br /><br />Students attending this event may document their activities as part of The UIC Experience Program.
