Chess Records Wrap Up


At last, I had the opportunity to celebrate my favourite record label ‘Chess Records’.

Last April Vintage Allsorts produced a night that paid tribute to a label that was instrumental in bringing early blues, soulful jazz and rock n’ roll to the world, launching the careers of acts such as Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Etta James, Chuck Berry and Howlin’ Wolf to name just a few.

With the help of an impressive lineup including:
– Mikelangelo ( MELB. )
– Pugsley Buzzard ( MELB. )
– Pat Powell
– Eric Rasmussen
– Kira Peru
– Christian Power
– Sally Marrett

It was an amazing night celebrating some of the most important and influential acts to come out of Chicago in the 50′s and early 60′s.Thank you to all of the wonderful performers and once again the Vanguard for hosting the night and to the incredible AV guru Darren Robinson for these amazing photos.
