World-renowned Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials have been performing for nearly 30 years. Led by front man 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…

This 30-year-old band fuels the stage with big blues sound.

WKAR, public media from Michigan State University, will first air Episode 906 of its BackStage Pass show on December 8, 2018, at 10 pm on WKAR-HD 23.1.
