september 12th, 2019

thursday - 10 PM

Drawing from his own past, this Chicago bluesman is intent on making his audience feel the spectrum of emotions that is the human experience.  Maurice John Vaughn entered the blues world in 1979, and has since carved out a permanent place for himself through his soulful vocals, virtuosity  on guitar and saxophone, and eagerness to relay the contemporary ups and downs of "having the blues" unto his listeners. Guitar World aptly summarizes a Vaughn performance as "great playing, great singing, bits of humorous storytelling and that deep, deep feeling".
