The Mississippi Valley Blues Society presents, in concert, virtuoso guitarist, outstanding vocalist and gifted songwriter Billy Thompson and band on Friday, October 12th, 2012, at The Muddy Waters (1708 State Street in Bettendorf, Iowa). The show starts at 9:00, admission is $10, only $8 for MVBS members.



Billy’s credits are many, including playing lead guitar for several years with both Little Milton and Larry “Arkansas” Davis as well as stretches with Albert King, Earl King, Elvin Bishop, Chuck Berry, Art Neville and many others. He also did theatrical stints playing lead guitar for the Broadway show Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues and for Tony Award winning playwright Keith Glover’s “Bluesical,” Thunder Knocking On The Door, which Billy then recorded with award-winning bluesman Keb Mo. His current CD, A Better Man, features members from the bands Little Feat, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt and Crosby Stills and Nash

I know, I know, you’ve never heard of Billy Thompson, and neither had I. I got his newest CD, A Better Man, via Blues Blast Magazine, as Billy’s latest work was nominated for best Contemporary Blues CD this year. Well, let me tell ya, he’s a good one. His songs are laced with poetic lyrics, his vocals both varied and soulful, and his guitar work first-rate. It’s one of the duties of the MVBS to bring blues acts here that otherwise wouldn’t be booked in this area. Especially the good ones. Check him out at

Don’t miss this renaissance bluesman at The Muddy Waters on Friday, October 12th, in a show sponsored by the MVBS.
