Event description
Second Bonus Show ... Chicago Blues is coming to Albany. The band formed by Willie Dixon and fronted now by his son Freddie at the ABC.

About this Event

The first Show at Six Degrees has Sold Out so we have organised a secind one.

The Original Chicago Blues All Stars (OCBAS) are the Blues band that Willie Dixon, the greatest Blues songwriter of his generation, put together as a touring band in the 1970’s. With Willie at the helm, the OCBAS toured and thrilled audiences for more than 10 years worldwide. The band re-formed more recently to carry on the legacy of the founders of the Chicago Blues.

The current line-up is headed by Freddie Dixon, bass player extraordinaire, who learned the instrument at the feet of his father, Willie Dixon. He has played and recorded with many of the greats of the Chicago Blues scene, and Freddie continues his father’s legacy by singing and playing the Blues worldwide.

The other Original Blues All Star is Dr. Jimmy Lee Tillman, the man who literally wrote the book on the art of blues drumming. He has played with Blues and R& B greats such as Jimmy Reed, Otis Rush, Syl Johnson, Tyrone Davis as well as Willie Dixon in the Original Chicago Blues All Stars. Dr Tillman has a PHD in Education, and is the founder of the University Life Community Center and the Farm School Intl.

Another Blues legend who has joined the band for this tour is Doktu Rhute Muuzic, (formerly Roy Hytower). Known as the Rhute Doctor, he was born and raised near Mobile Alabama, where he began his music career backing touring artists such as Ray Charles, Sam Cooke and Fats Domino. Doktu moved to Chicago in the 1960’s and immediately hooked up with legendary bluesman Otis Rush. The rest is history as the Rhute Doctor formed his owned bands and played live all over the world. He has appeared on stage and screen in addition to his music career.

Michael Damani, 24, is the youngest member of the band. Michael is also the leader of his own group as well as lead guitar for the funk group Tamarie T and the Elektra Kumpany. Michael was “discovered” at a weekly jam at Motor Row Brewing, in Chicago and quickly became a stalwart of the group. He has spent the last several years honing his skills as a guitarist of many genres and is excited to continue to develop his skills for all eternity.
