    The St. Augustine Amphitheatre will present legendary rock and roll star Buddy Guy, with special guest The Rides, on Sunday, April 9, 2017.

    At age 79, the legendary Buddy Guy can still rock as well as many can in their prime. His influence on rock icons like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, cannot be overstated. He was a pioneer of Chicago's West Coast Sound, and he is a living link to the city's electric blues days.

    Buddy Guy has received seven Grammy awards, a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 2015, 34 Blues Music Awards, and Billboard Magazine's Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, as well as a Kennedy Center Honor and the Presidential National Medal of Arts.

    The Rides are a groundbreaking blues-rock group who have been called, by Stephen Stills, "the blues band of my dreams." Their 2014 album was nominated for Best Rock Blues Album at the Blues Music Awards, and they are known for their high-energy shows on tour.
