Chicago and Route 66 photos

Here are some more music related photos from our recent US road trip, most of them from our stay in Chicago and from the journey along The Mother Road, Route 66. First, though, here are a couple from a show we went to in Riverhead, Long Island. This is the former frontman of the McCoys Rick Derringer.
Appearing with him was G E Smith, former guitarist with Hall and Oates.
On to Chicago and this is Mz Peaches at Buddy Guy's Legends club.
Here is Demetria Taylor at Blue Chicago.
88 year old bluesman Jimmy Johnson at Buddy Guy's Legends.
Chess Studios in Chicago is now home to the Willie Dixon Foundation.

This is Big George Brock at B B's Jazz, Blues and Soups in St Louis. Lower photo shows him with Freddie Dixon, son of Willie.
We passed through Branson, Missouri, which struck us as a down market Las Vegas with nothing but tribute bands performing.

We were treated to a performance of Route 66 by Harley, owner of the Sand Hills curiosity shop in Erick, Oklahoma.
