Blues Prophets play Chicago style blues on Munjoy Hill in the St. Lawrence Arts lot! Bring your favorite beach chair and get your dancing shoes on for this one! Blues Prophets are a Blues band from Maine formed in the 70's! They've played with Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor, Prof. Longhair, Pinetop Perkins..and more! The Blues Prophets began as The New England Blues Prophets rehearsing in the basement of a house in Norridgewock, Maine in 1976, where they were introducing local audiences to a new music genre. To the bands amazement, patrons embraced a combo that played the blues, and nothing but the blues. Songwriter Larry John McNally wrote, This is good-time music for dancing and having fun, not for crying in your beer. The band traveled to the four corners of Chicago, played many stages in New Orleans, Boston, Washington, D.C., throughout Maine and New England, constantly honing their craft. During their travels, the boys worked with legends of the day like Muddy Waters & Koko Taylor.
