Terms and Conditions:

**Please note fees include Evanston and Cook County amusement tax.** We want to make sure that all patrons know what to expect when attending events at SPACE. Please note that not all tickets guarantee seats. Seating varies show by show, so please pay attention to the description of the seating level that you select. A "Reserved Table Seat" guarantees one seat at a cabaret table. Every individual in your party needs a ticket in that section in order to sit at your table. Table seats are held until one hour after the start time of the show. Reserved Table Seats and any will-call tickets are non transferable - the name of the person ordering must match the name of the person picking up the tickets. A “GA Limited Seating” ticket guarantees access to the concert, but does not guarantee a seat. Seating is available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. If seating is absolutely necessary to you, please purchase a Reserved Table Seat. For certain shows, we will have a "GA Seated" section, which guarantees a chair, but no table. Seats for this section are guaranteed until showtime. A “GA Dance Floor” or “Standing Room” ticket is just that. There is absolutely no seating in either of these sections. Please do not purchase a ticket in these sections if you will be unable to stand for the duration of the show. Doors for concerts open one hour before the start time of the show. SPACE reserves the right to change the start time, or to add performers to a lineup. Ticket buyers will be emailed with any major changes. No outside food or drinks are permitted. Pizzas from Union Pizzeria can be brought into the concert. SPACE has a full bar and cocktail service during shows. Flash photography is not permitted in SPACE. This is a listening room, and it is important to us that performers are able to be heard. Patrons talking during quiet shows may be asked to step outside so others can enjoy the show. SPACE is an all-ages venue, but patrons must be 21 to drink alcoholic beverages. No refunds will be given under any circumstances. By continuing with this purchase, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions stated above.

 I understand and accept these terms.

Additional Information

Billy  Branch was discovered by Willie Dixon, the "father of modern Chicago  Blues," while Billy was still in college. Willie encouraged Billy to finish  his college education, which he did, but instead of going to law school after  receiving his political science degree, Billy began touring with the Willie  Dixon Chicago All-Stars. This gave Billy the unique opportunity to travel and  work as an under study for the legendary Carey Bell who was planning to leave  the All-Stars and form his own band. When Carey took his leave, the young Billy  Branch took his place, touring with Willie Dixon for 6 years. 
 
Since those early days, Billy has played on over 150 different recordings, including  12 under his own name. He's recorded with Willie Dixon, Johnny Winter, Lou  Rawls, Koko Taylor, Eddy Clearwater, Honeyboy Edwards, Syl Johnson,  Lurrie Bell, Lonnie Brooks,  Ronnie Baker Brooks, John Primer, and Taj Mahal, just to name  a few.  In addition, he has  received three Grammy nominations (losing one nomination to BB King and  Eric Clapton). He served two consecutive terms on the Grammy Board of  Governors, and founded the Grammy Blues Committee.  In addition, he has won  multiple W.C. Handy Awards from the Blues Foundation, an Emmy Award, an Addy  Award (this is like an Oscar for TV ads), two Chicago Music Awards, and numerous  humanitarian achievement awards. Billy  Branch has become the ambassador of the Chicago Blues. During his 6 week tour of Turkey, he represented the USA in Turkey’s Parliament, teaching political party  leaders to play harmonica!  Thousands of fans showed up every night of the week to experience the authentic Chicago Blues!  He and  his band, the Sons of Blueshave delivered this cultural legacy around the world, having made over 70 international tours. The  2007 Chicago Blues Festival honored the thirtieth anniversary of Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues with a 3 hour performance. In fact, they also  headlined the 2011 Chicago Blues Festival.

Billy is a Blues education pioneer. In addition to his recording and performing, he's taught literally thousands of children around the world. His internationally  recognized “Blues in  Schools Program,” is committed to teaching both young and old about the Blues as the roots of America's music. He has brought his interdisciplinary program to Europe, South America,  Asia, and most recently to Mexico where he taught his two week program in Spanish. In addition he teaches in the Grammy Museum Music Revolution Project.
