The Buddy shows have just started, but what a start it was. Matt Hendricks and his crew gave us some original and classic blues tunes, while hitting us with a little blues history. After that the legendary Bobby Rush came to the stage and lit it up. As he paced between his dancers engaging the crowd his energetic charisma didn’t miss a beat. It was when Buddy hit the stage that it finally felt like January, the first show, an electric show, the show we had waited 340 days for. House photographer Aaron Porter captured some of the moments below.
