He is a Chicago Blues Legend!
As the bandleader and lead guitarist for Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Magic Slim & The Teardrops, John Primer’s virtuosity as a blues musician was forged by legends.
John started playing on Maxwell Street, the birthplace of Chicago blues and soon became the house bandleader at the infamous Theresa’s Lounge for seven years alongside Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, James Cotton and others.
Having played or recorded with a who’s who of blues greats including Gary Clark Jr., Derek Trucks, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy to name a few, John Primer’s personal accolades, including Lifetime Achievement Awards, reflect his countless contributions to the history of the blues.
There are very few blues fans, critics or musicians who will deny the fact that John Primer is the real deal.
I am a wife and mother of two rambunctious boys living in Loveland Colorado after our brief stay on the Western Slope. We are transplants from the beautiful mountain town of Flagstaff Arizona. But nothing compares to the Rocky Mountains! While I grew up in the Phoenix area, I moved to Flagstaff when I went to college at NAU where I got my degree in journalism. I want to work with local businesses. If you are local, own a business and found this website, it wasn’t by accident. Shoot me an email and let’s work together!
