BackStage Pass

Lil Ed & The Blues Imperials

Season 9 Episode 906 | 56m 46s

World-renowned Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials have been performing for nearly 30 years. Led by frontman Lil' Ed with his rough-edged, soulful vocals, this group is as real and hard-hitting as Chicago blues gets. The Chicago Sun-Times says, "Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials are the hottest purveyors of bottleneck boogie to come out of Chicago since Hound Dog Taylor."
