GRAND PRAIRIE—Blues rocker Buddy Whittington will take the spotlight on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Uptown Theater. Whittington’s performance will feature his bluesy voice accompanied by sometimes fast and furious riffs poured out of his guitar that seem effortless. The performance begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15-$20.
Following in the footsteps of music greats Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor and Walter Trout, Texas-native Whittington was John Mayall’s guitarist for 15 years as a member of the Bluesbreakers band. He made his recording debut on Mayall’s Spinning Coin album in 1993 and his first self titled solo CD was released in 2007.
The Uptown Theater is located at 120 E. Main St. For more information, visit www.uptowntheatergp.com, or call 972-237-8786.
