Without him, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton or Stevie Ray Vaughan might have chosen to play the violin or the ukulele rather than the electric guitar. At 82, Buddy Guy continues to influence any guitarist.
Pioneer of West Chicago sound and guitar hero before the hour, George Buddy Guy, born July 30, 1936 in Lettsworth (Louisiana), engraved the tables of the law of blues guitar. His touch, velocity and spectacular play influenced the greatest servants of the six strings. But far from falling asleep on the multiple laurels that have earned him five decades of loyal service to the cause of electric blues, Buddy Guy continues to record essential albums. Like the aptly named Born To Play Guitar, released in 2015 and immediately ranked No. 1 in sales in its category
His guitar playing is still flamboyant and his voice gives no sign of wear. It really seems that he passed this famous pact with the Devil to the mythical “crossroads”! We are therefore delighted to see him again in October, more electric than ever, on the stage of the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo for another legendary concert.

Johnny Gallagher and the Boxtie Band
Known as one of the best guitarists in Ireland and the United Kingdom, Johnny Gallagher is above all a performer, taking advantage of the stage to express his explosive talent.
His concerts are a successful mixture of original compositions and personal versions of songs by Pink Floyd, The Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Peter Green and Jimmie Rodgers. We discover again his inimitable and expressive voice on the stage of the Salle des Etoiles, as the opening act to Deep Purple and Pretenders, on the occasion of the release of his new album “THE PUMPHOUSE Suite” on 30th March 2017.
Manu Lanvin and the Devil Blues
Singer guitarist and exceptional show-man, Manu Lanvin is today a key figure of French blues-rock. With six albums to his credit, including three with his power trio Devil Blues, Manu has chained since 2012 nearly 500 concerts including prestigious stages in Europe and the United States (The Olympia, The Apollo Theater, The Montreux Jazz Festival , Solidays, Cognac Blues Passion, …)
Acclaimed by a growing public at his concerts, and hailed by his peers, such as Quincy Jones, Manu Lanvin “the devil” undoubtedly embodies the renewal of the genre and has over the years perfected an explosive rock blues. The album “BLUES, BOOZE AND ROCK ‘N’ROLL” released in October 2016 earned him the praise of the music press and the recognition of professionals. The album is selected as one of the “Best Album of the Year” and its show is selected as one of the “Best Performances of the Year” by Rock & Folk magazine.
He will present his new album, composed of some classic blues revisited but also original songs, which he recorded with his favorite musicians Jimi Montout (on drums), Nicolas Belanger (on bass), Diabolo (on the harmonica ), MikeLatrell (keyboards) and Jérémy Lacoste (slide guitar). The result is “GRAND CASINO”, a pure album of Blues’ n’ Roll, where we also discover and enjoy some duets with prestigious friends such as TAJ MAHAL, BEVERLY JO SCOTT, JOHNNY GALLAGHER and POPA CHUBBY who were present at call of the Devil.
