Saturday, June 2nd: :   LIZ MANDEVILLE & THE BLUE POINTS!

One of Chicago’s hottest female blues performers, Liz Mandeville,
Chicago Blues Hall of Famer, and her band, the Blue Points, will turn
Norton’s Music Palace into the epicenter
of an earthquake guaranteed to have patrons dancing till the doors close.

Saturday, June 9th:   TONY OCEAN

Saturday, June 16th:   ERIC & THE DYNAMOS!

Eric & The Dynamos pays tribute two musical giants: Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood.
The band features a Chicago’s favorite, Louie Zagoras on guitar, Scott Kaufman on keyboards, Ira Sussman on bass and Dave Harris on drums. The band plays (almost)
the entire Derrick & The Dominos album “Layla and Other Love Songs”, and reaches deep into Clapton and Winwood’s repertoire, with hits from Cream,
Blind Faith, Traffic and their respective solo careers.
A real treat for fans of these two exceptional musicians!

Saturday, June 23rd:   OMAR COLEMAN BLUES!

Omar has the personality, sound, and passion of the late greats Junior Wells and
James Brown and hopes to reach similar acclaim with his own career.
Visit one of the four real deal blues joints in Chicago and ask about Omar Coleman.
No tricks, no games…. just blues.
Omar has established himself as one of the nation’s premier harmonica players and blues vocalist alive today, billed on festivals with legends like Robert Cray, Buddy Guy,
Koko Taylor, Ruth Brown, and Robert Randolph. With a voice soulful beyond his years, Omar has been impressing audiences across the nation with his genuine,
seasoned harmonica skills and vocals. Omar is known to interact directly
with his audience, befriending an entire audience.

Saturday, 30th: :   DIAMONDBACK!

Diamondback’s extensive song list is truly a history of Country and, for that
matter, American pop music. They specialize in Classic Country but are just as
convincing playing oldies, country rock, southern rock, modern country and Americana.
Tight harmonies, great musicianship and a respect for the music and those that have
come before them, Diamondback will make you wanna buy a beer just so you can cry in it. They’ll make you wanna dance, they’ll make you wanna sing along. They’ll take you everywhere from your first date to your last divorce, to the love you just found,
or the love you just lost. Diamondback 2018 takes something from every edition,
wherever they go, wherever they play, moving forward with their unique brand
of Honky Tonk. C’mon and see what the fuss is all about…
