Here are a few shots from Friday's Chicago Blues Festival. Nothing spectacular, but it'll give you a good sense of the fun in the sun at Grant Park.
We started the day at the "Front Porch" stage, which is tucked away in a tree-lined clearing. We took in the sounds of the Lurrie Bell Blues Band as we tossed back a cold one (or two) and enjoyed the scenery.
Then it was off to the Petrillo Band Shell for the evening's main event: the 30th anniversary reunion of Billy Branch's Sons of Blues.
With the always impressive Chicago skyline looming to the north and west of the park, it's a spectacular venue to experience great live music.
A good time was definitely had by all.
