In July of 2008, Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Sugar Blue, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, and Bob Stroger assembled in New York City to work with the crew of the ﬁlm The Perfect Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll, to appear in a short sequence of the ﬁlm and add a song to the soundtrack. The experience went so well that they nailed the songs on the ﬁrst run and several of the guys were given speaking roles.
The Perfect Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll Blues Band will be joined by Muddy Waters Band alumnus Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin in 2010 as a touring entity. Collectively, this band represents over 300 years of touring history. They have won several Grammy Awards, have had over 60 Blues Music Award nominations, and over 30 wins. These veteran performers, whose ages range from 60 to 96, embody the history of the blues. Together, they will continue to make history onstage for one great run over the next year.
