Buzz Kilman

Buzz Kilman is a pretty big deal around Chicago. He has carved a niche for himself as a radio personality - sort of a comic foil to people like Steve Dahl and Jonathan Brandmeier. He is also a member of the "closet blues harmonica" fraternity, and is therefore my blood brother.

Buzz played the local blues club in Evanston IL last night. He is an enthusiastic performer, and he brings out a crowd of fans. I don't think Buzz will get mad if I say that he is not channeling Little Walter. He is a pretty good harp blower who has great stage presence and audience rapport.

I have a gig tonight at Duke's Bar located on the far north side of Chicago. I am going to try to connect with the crowd the way Buzz did last night.
