July 16 @ 7:30 pm

“Chicago’s Toronzo Cannon, a smoking hot guitarist, vocalist, songwriter…Cannon is one of the best songwriters working in roots music today,” raves ROCK & BLUES MUSE. “‘The Chicago Way’ is a fast-paced boogie in the John Lee Hooker tradition, but it only hints at the depths of Cannon’s vast repertoire. He’s a highly emotive singer and a fantastic guitarist!” states the CHICAGO READER (2016 Album Review of ‘The Chicago Way’). “It comes highly recommended by this reviewer! Toronzo Cannon is now one of the stars of the Chicago scene,” says BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE (2019 Album Review ‘The Preacher, The Politician or The Pimp’).

10x-Blues Music Award Nominated Guitarist, Singer & Songwriter TORONZO CANNON has 4 Nominations for “Contemporary Blues Male Artist of the Year” (2017-2020) and 2 Nominations for “Blues Album of the Year” (2017 & 2020) at the Blues Music Awards! THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE states, “Deep, contemporary Chicago blues…razor-sharp guitar and compelling, forceful singing.” Cannon is a soulful vocalist & songwriter that fuses muscular, rock-inspired blues guitar with his original, keenly detailed slice-of-life songs. “Toronzo is the real deal,” raves Blues Matters (UK). With the release of 2019’s acclaimed album, ‘The Preacher, The Politician Or The Pimp’ (2020 Nomination for “Blues Album of the Year”), Cannon builds upon the foundation he’s laid, creating and defining his vision of contemporary blues. “His guitar playing has all the fire and spontaneity of the Chicago legends he carries…” says BLUES MAGAZINE. ELMORE MAGAZINE raves “One of today’s best blues songwriters and blues entertainers.”
