Where ever your from or where ever you've been say your piece. Where's the best blues being played at now? I am from St. Louis and frankly think we have one of the best if not the best blues in America. (San Fran, and Austin may disagree) Chicago has for a long time been know as the Blues capital, but I go there a lot being close and 90% of the blues I hear there is Tourist blues. Young-ish white boys that may play ok but have not got a true Blues sound or set list. Really on the great migration to the north(chicago/Detroit) the first stop was St. Louis. Many* of the good blues guys stopped right here and were very good in their own right. Just didn't have Chess next door. However to mention a few names--Albert King, Little Milton, etc. Until recently we had bunches of the 70+ generation still making great music here. Some such as Henry Townsend played into his 90's and even played with Robert Johnson here in St. Louis in the 30's. This town is a guitar players town. I have literaly seen hundreds of excellent players who played real blues learned mainly from the masters here in the 60-80's. A lot of the best blues singers are still 3rd generation mississippi and Arkansas guys, but we have some newer guys(like a hotshot 18yr old thats been playing out since he was 13) that are under 50 that sound good. We also have atleast 30+ clubs easily that has blues every weekend and quite a few all week. One cool point is many are clubs that have been clubs and taverns that were built in the 1800's and have served alcohol since prohibition. I have also lived in Dallas, and Atlanta and they both have a couple good spots but nowhere near the blues community we have here. *Honorable mention: Goes to Northside Tavern in Atlanta Tell me about your town?
