‘Human Nature’ Aussie group returns

Burton expresses his excitement on their upcoming show at the BB King Blues Club since the last they played there in 2010. The group cannot deny that it has been awhile now and they can’t wait to perform there again. According to Digital Journal, he said, “It is quite different than our show in Las Vegas. We get to show our chops as performers and musicians. It is about the music, the singing, and the playing. It is going to be a great show!”

Meanwhile, Burton admitted that technology had a huge impact on their music business.  He added, “It is a really interesting thing! People have instant access to so much more music these days. Literally, almost any song you can think of, you can just type it in, and listen to it straight away. Technology has really changed things in the way people purchase music.”

He also addressed the resurgence of vinyl lately. For him, it seems like people just recently realize that listening to music is a great way, a real encounter. “The actual sound is pure, and it is the way that sound was originally designed. It is not digital, and it’s not coming out of a computer. It is raw and it’s real. It’s really great! I love listening to vinyl.”

Moreover, Burton’s group, Human Nature, has released their latest album called “Jukebox: The Ultimate Playlist,” which also available on iTunes. He recommended to fans his personal favorite entitled “Runaround Sue.”

“That song is always a killer. It’s such an amazing song. We always end our show with ‘Runaround Sue’. It has become the hit of the show. It gets everybody up on their feet, dancing and singing along,” he shared. For Burton, success is about being happy with the outcome of everything you have done.

Chicago blues label Delmark Records 65th Anniversary

Chicago blues label Delmark Records celebrates its 65th anniversary at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. According to Timeout Chicago, the lineup on June 8 will give awesome performances. Chicago Blues Label Delmark Records was known for releasing albums for the following artists: Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, Magic Sam, and many more.

Corey Dennison Band and Mississippi Heat, who are Modern Delmark artists as well, will kick off the evening’s event before a set of local performance will turn the tribute to Delmark’s most respected signees. On June 9, a long list of local performances will honor blues harpist, also known as harmonica player Little Walter. It can be recalled that he began in a blues club on Maxwell Street before joining Muddy Waters’ band.

Moreover, harmonica aficionados can expect to see Billy Branch, Billy Boy, Arnold, Corky Siegel, Rick Estrin, Sugar Blue, Magic Dick and more blowing on their harps. This will happen during the climactic end of the evening.

On June 10, Chicago Blues Festival will welcome gospel legend Mavis Staples to the stage to end the weekend hometown set. As per the earlier source, the 78-year-old veteran recently released her third album “If All I was, was black.” It was reportedly produced in collaboration with Jeff Tweedy. Therefore, do not be shocked to see Wilco frontman show up in one of Staples’ performance. The evening will also feature performances from rootsy vocalist Fantastic Negrito and Louisiana bluesman Kenny Neal.

Festival will reveal the lineups in the coming months, for its Budweiser Crossroads Stage, Mississippi Juke Joint and the Front Porch. Furthermore, this summer will mark the Chicago Blues Festival’s second appearance in Millennium Park since being moved from its former home in Grant Park.
