Any discussion of Buddy Guy invariably involves a recitation of his colossal musical resume and hard-earned accolades. He's a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a chief guitar influence to rock titans like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city's halcyan days of electric blues.

George Thorogood has a theory. In any field, especially the arts, there are always two things ‘genius’ and ‘very clever.’ There’s no in-between. You’re either a genius or very clever. I’m going to throw out two names at you. John Lennon genius, right? And Mick Jagger? Very clever. See what I’m saying? I’ll give you another example. Einstein genius. And George Thorogood very clever.’’ Yet what about the people who think Thorogood is a genius in his own way? OK, I’m a genius at being very clever,’’ he says with a hearty laugh. Thorogood loves quips almost as much as he loves the blues, so here’s another: Let’s put it this way. Dylan has a Rolls Royce dealership. I have a used Chevy dealership. But I’m in the business. You got it? That’s all I wanted from this thing. A gig, man. And I got a gig.’’ Thorogood and his band the Destroyers have held that gig for more than 30 years.

Now the two unite with one for the ages. A night at "The people's room" in George's words. Live at the Casino Ballroom, two of the best in the business - for one night only.
