The blues is still alive, well and scorching hot at Blind Willie's, located in the heart of the charming Virginia-Highlands neighborhood. Built in 1986 with the blood, sweat and tears of local musicians, the club has endured for over 25 years, presenting nationally recognized artists like Charles Brown and Rufus Thomas, and providing a regular home for some of Atlanta's blues royalty, including house band The Shadows, Houserocker Johnson, Sandra Hall, Francine Reed, Beverly "Guitar" Watkins, Bill Sheffield, Jon Liebman & the Electromatics and Sweet Betty.
