Info

Black Magic Johnson hosts James Armstrong Presents at The AlamoBlack Magic Johnson views the blues as a natural fact—the raw emotional juice that flows through all American music. Based in Springfield, Illinois, this quartet plays blues that strip away the lines between rhythm & blues, country, rock & roll, gospel, and soul. Black Magic Johnson's CD, "Call Me" (2012), is a sonic testament to the unbound, life-affirming vigor of the blues. After cutting his teeth with Eddie Snow & the Snowflakes, Oysters Rockefeller,and Tom Irwin, Reggie Britton — singer, songwriter, drummer, and harmonica player — formed Black Magic Johnson as a way to live more, to make himself and others feel better through his "happy songs."

Since then, Black Magic Johnson has performed alongside Koko Taylor at the 2006 Great Performers of Illinois celebration in Chicago, Lonnie Brooks, Davis Dee, Buddy Guy, Phil Guy and Ronnie Bake Brooks, Willie Nelson & others. BMJ been voted the Best Blues Act in a 2008, 2009, & 2011 Illinois Times readers poll, and been named the Official Blues Band of the Springfield Milers BMW Motorcycle Club.

Music from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. No cover charge.
