From Mississippi sharecropper land to Chicago, John Primer is the REAL DEAL!
He got his start in Chicago down on Maxwell Street in 1963 working on the corner for tips before getting
his start at Theresa’s Lounge on the South Side of Chicago. He was the bandleader for Sammy Lawhorn,
Jr. Wells and James Cotton at Theresa’s for 7 years, 7 nights a week. This is where he was taught
how to play Chicago Blues! He was picked up by Willie Dixon to lead his All Star Band and then
Muddy Waters noticed his skills and took him from Willie to lead his band. After Muddy passed John
went on to lead Magic Slim & The Teardrops Band for the next 13 years before forming his own Real
Deal Blues Band in 1995. John has toured extensively all over Europe for over 50 years and has a
huge fan base. He is a multi-award winning artist as well as a 2 time Grammy Nominee and is
one of Chicago’s very last Living Traditional Blues Icon’s left today!
