University Park, IL—(ENEWSPF)–January 4, 2017 – “Sweet Home Chicago Blues” was the song that brought the house down last March at GSU alongside Billy Branch, and the man behind the guitar was blues prodigy Jamiah Rogers. The standing ovation can be seen on YouTube, but true blues fans will want to witness Jamiah’s brand of blues in person. January 28 at 8 p.m. is the night when Jamiah Rogers and guest vocalist Babidoll own the stage at GSU once again in Guitar Greats, a tribute to guitar’s finest including Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, and more.
Jamiah Rogers, aka “Jamiah on Fire,” started playing guitar at the age of three and recorded his first CD at age six. Hailing from a musical family with father and manager Tony Rogers by his side, Jamiah has played with the likes of Buddy Guy, Billy Branch, and Billy Cox, to name a few. He’s been recognized as the “most talented kid under the age of 12” by the Chicago Music Awards multiple years. Now in his twenties, Jamiah has come into his own, bringing adoring crowds and owning the stage at multiple venues globally.
Guest vocalist Babidoll is a star in her own right. Known for her five-octave singing voice and her ability to sing in seven languages, Babidoll sings R & B, jazz, pop, neo-soul, classical, opera and more. She’s collaborated with multiple Grammy Award-winning artists and been the private vocal coach for many American Idol and America’s Got Talent contestants.
Don’t miss this dynamic duo performing live for an intimate crowd at GSU. This performance is one of the Center’s “on stage experiences” where patrons are seated on the stage with the performers in the midst of the action. Limited seating is available.
