Blues Fest at Hats Plus

Submitted by on June 15, 2013 – 10:08 pm

Pianist Deniece Williams was in the shop during Blues Fest here in Chicago. Doesn't she look nice in a pork pie hat?

Our sweet home Chicago is world reknowned for its blues, most especially the annual summer celebration of BluesFest.

Luckily for us, Hats Plus is a popular haunt for musicians to visit. A slew of bluesmen and women were in the shop all week, and we were fortunate enough to have a few agree to pose for some photos.

Jazz and classical pianist Deniece Williams was trying on a few hats. (Not to be confused with the “Let’s Hear It for the Boy” Williams.)

Also in was E.B. Davis. Here he is posing with Ken, Hats Plus’ resident blues encyclopedia. Mr. Davis is known as “The Blues Ambassador.” He also has been inducted into the Arkansas Blues Hall of Fame. You can watch some of his performances on YouTube.
