Best Jazz & Blues in Kalamazoo

Tedeschi Trucks Band at Wings Event Center

Tedeschi Trucks Band

The Grammy-winning husband and wife duo Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks are hitting the road. Comprised of slide guitar virtuoso Trucks, the feisty vocals of Tedeschi and a backing band of killer brass and rhythm section musicians, the Tedeschi Truck Band do southern-fried soul like no one else's business.

Graham Nash at State Theatre

Graham Nash

One third (or fourth, depending on who is feuding with whom) of folk rocks biggest super-group, Graham Nash is often credited with being the glue that keeps the trio making sweet music together, and having penned some of their greatest hits including Marrakech Express and more. This summer the former Hollie heads out on tour once more, bringing you an evening that delves far into his remarkable six-decade career, to show you the real Graham Nash.

Buddy Guy at State Theatre

Buddy Guy

One of the musical inspirations for guitar legends like Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones and Jimmy Page, this American blues guitarist is considered to be one of the greatest axemen of all time. Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, six-time Grammy winner, and, as if that isn't enough, Eric Clapton once called him "without a doubt the best guitar player alive". Enough said.

Mandy Patinkin at Miller Auditorium

Mandy Patinkin

First rising to mainstream attention as the feisty Spanish fencer who uttered the immortal lines "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." in the endlessly quotable 1987 cult film The Princess Bride, Hollywood heavyweight Mandy Patinkin has courted the spotlight on both stage and screen, simultaneously making a name for himself on Broadway with Tony-winning and nominated turns in Evita and Sunday In the Park With George.
