Johnny Winter to play in Watseka
WATSEKA — Blues guitar hero Johnny Winter and his band will perform at 8 p.m. Friday at the Watseka Theatre.
The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for dinner patrons, and the opening act will play at 7. Ticket prices start at $40.
Winter's career took off in the late 1960s after Rolling Stone magazine featured him in a story about the Texas music scene. The article caused a bidding war between record labels that was eventually won by Columbia. Since then, Winter has put out more than 30 records and has continuously been on the road.
