John Primer Booking Agency Profile

Book John Primer for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Without a doubt, John Primer contributed to the development of the Chicago blues' current sound and aesthetic. Every chord he plays now is tinged with the pulse of heritage that echoes from the birthplaces he played, such as Maxwell Street, Theresa's, Checkerboard, and Rosa's Lounges. A Chicago Blues Living Legend is John Primer.
Raised in 1945 on sharecropper land in Mississippi, he was greatly influenced by the daily field songs and hard work of his family, as well as their profound commitment to spirituals on Sundays and blues on Saturdays! John had a goal of performing alongside the legendary Muddy Waters in the future.
After making his amends, John started fronting The Real Deal Blues Band. Over 87 albums have been recorded by him, including 17 under his own name. More than six record labels, including his own Blues House Productions, have released more than 55 songs that he has written and produced. John Primer is a legendary Chicago Blues Icon, having won numerous accolades including the Blues Music Award, Blues Blast Awards, two Grammy Award nominations, two Lifetime Achievement Awards, induction into the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame, and the "Muddy Award" for being a traditional blues legend..
