What a great atmosphere. It’s an intimate setting where you eat and drink while fantastic blues artists jam on stage, with vintage blues / rock memorabilia all over the place. Couldn’t ask for more. Loved it.

Not sure, but if i’ll be you I would expect not to pay the extra $10. Ask them to clarify when get there. The truth is, if you’re a fan the extra $10 won’t make a difference :)

Don't know about ticket sales at Buddy Guy Legends Club. When I had gone to the club it was a last minute decision. I waited in line to get in.
