Quintus McCormick

Jun 13, 2009 Time: 9 pm

The Livery Microbrewery and Cafe
Quintus McCormick has toured the world with some of the most successful and important blues artists of our time: James Cotton, Otis Clay, A.C. Reed, and Lefty Dizz to name a few. Working as a sideman, Quintus’ reputation as a brilliant guitarist, gifted songwriter and astonishing vocalist spread like wildfire throughout the music community. His ever-evolving musicianship simply became too powerful to harness. Music legends Buddy Guy and James Cotton encouraged Quintus to form his own band. Thus, he rounded up the best of Chicago’s elite musicians and established The Quintus McCormick Band!

For the past 11 years, Quintus and his “on-fire” musical group have been a mainstay of the Chicago blues scene, appearing frequently in the city’s world-renown nightclubs: Kingston Mines, Buddy Guy’s Legends, Blues on Halsted, House of Blues, and Blue Chicago. Quintus and his band have also performed at countless festivals and concerts. Night after night, music lovers are torn between gleefully stomping their feet and watching in awe as this unparalleled group of “musician’s musicians” belt out the funkiest, house-rockin’ blues and soul music Chicago has ever produced, as Quintus makes his way through the crowd, picking blistering guitar solos and singing one-on-one to the fans he so dearly and passionately loves to entertain.
