Don’t miss legendary blues rockers George ThorogoodGeorge Thorogood & The Destroyers
 & The Destroyers!

Special Guest: Tom Hambridge

Rockin’ the blues for more than 30 years, George Thorogood and the Destroyers are well known for their classic hit “Bad to the Bone,” as well as iconic rock covers of Hank Williams’ “Move It On Over,” Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” and John Lee Hooker’s “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.”

George Thorogood and the Destroyers are currently touring in support of their newest album, 2120 South Michigan Avenue. The album, named for the address of Chicago’s Chess Records, pays tribute not only to a great record label but also pays homage to the tough, larger-than-life men who made the music including Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Buddy Guy and more. Through the entire project, Thorogood and the Destroyers attempted to put their own distinctive spin on the classic Chess Records’ material while maintaining fidelity to the originals’ attack.

“When you do Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, when you play Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, there’s no experimenting,” explains George Thorogood. “That’s a religion, and you’ve gotta do it right.”
