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

Join us for a special Blues Fest edition of Dave Specter's Adventures in Guitar series featuring Chicago bluesman extraordinaire, Jimmy Johnson.

Jimmy Johnson has been a fixture on the Chicago blues scene for over 50 years and his combination of soulful vocals and stinging guitar has been thrilling audiences worldwide with recent tours in Europe and South America. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2016.

Born in Holly Springs, Mississippi in 1928, Jimmy moved to Chicago in 1950 where he worked as a welder and played guitar in his spare time. He soon started playing professionally with artists like Freddy King, Magic Sam, Otis Rush and Jimmy Dawkins. 

His recording career started in the 1970s with classic albums on Delmark and Alligator Records and Jimmy later recorded on Ruf and Verve Records with his brother, the great R&B artist Syl Johnson.

"A striking, original artist" - The Village Voice
"Twisting, unpredictable guitar style and a soaring, soul-dripping vocal delivery." - All Music Guide

Dave Specter first met Jimmy Johnson in the mid-1980s and they've been playing together ever since.
They've recently headlined The Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland, The Chicago Blues Festival and appeared together at the 2010 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Jimmy's a featured guest on Dave's 2008 "Live in Chicago" CD/DVD on Delmark Records and they also appear together on the BMA Award Winning DVD "It Ain't Over", documenting Delmark Records 55th Anniversary.

Dave has been a fixture on the Chicago blues scene for the past 3 decades and has appeared on over 35 albums as a recording artist and producer.

"One of the few top-tier guitarists" - Downbeat
"A global ambassador of Chicago blues" - Chicago SunTimes

Dave Specter's Adventures in Guitar series, which has been running at SPACE for the past eight years, has featured some of the finest talents in blues and jazz including Lurrie Bell, John Primer, Steve Freund, Jeff Parker, Donald Kinsey, Tad Robinson, Bobby Broom, Guy King, Nick Moss, Rick Holmstrom, Eddie Shaw and Joel Paterson.
