Bright Lights, Big City - Milwaukee Slim

The HouseRockin’ Blues Revue is a Milwaukee-based Chicago style blues band...a six piece powerhouse that pays tribute to the blues masters of the 50’s and 60’s. With members who’ve played with the likes of B.B. King, The Legendary Blues Band, Percy Mayfield, Billy Flynn, Stokes, and Jim Liban to name just a few, this band will get ‘em movin’ and keeps ‘em groovin’. The HouseRockin’ Blues Revue dishes out the old school stylings and emotions of such legends as Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, Hound Dog Taylor, Jimmy Rogers, Howlin’Wolf, Big Walter, and Little Walter.
