Kingston Mines is one of the oldest and best blues clubs in town. As you listen to the likes of Jimmy Johnson, Eddie C. Campbell and Billy Branch, you can also eat a variety of Southern-style food from the kitchen. And, if you cannot wait for the next band to start, you just have to cross rooms to the second stage where another band is sure to already be underway. By evening's end, the rowdy crowd sometimes has a hard time navigating from room to room, but that's all part of the down-to-earth atmosphere in a club that encourages its clientèle to be as loud and rambunctious as it pleases.... less

Shared a beer with Lonnie Brooks. I can't think of a better place to get the real feel for Chicago Blues. These days, you'll see Vance Kelly and Joanna Conner, talented artists guaranteed to entertain. Full disclosure: I'm a fan of Rosa's Lounge, B.L.U.E.S. and Buddy Guy's Legends, as well.... less

When we booked our trip to Chicago, the first thing I looked for was whether this fiery youtube lady Joanna Connor was playing anywhere. Turns out Kingston Mines is kind of her regular gig AND she had an early (8 PM) show which is very important to us old-timers. We got there early, took the best seats in the house and had a blast. Joanna is a raw, teeth grinding blues rocker (with a daughter in college playing basketball!). What a classic club and a MUST for any blues fan. We were so pumped that we hung around for Vino Louden’s first set in the main room.... less

    ... but the drinks are good and the music and atmosphere are amazing. Always worth a visit if you are into blues and like live music.
