At age 80, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”

Mavis Staples is an alchemist of American music, and has continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles. Weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk, pop, R&B, blues, rock, and even hip hop over the better part of the last 60 years, the iconic singer has seen and sung through so many changes, always rising up to meet every road unwaveringly. At the beginning of her eighth decade of singing truth, Mavis Staples has delivered a new recording, If All I Was Was Black, ten songs about America today, where the present is filled with ghosts of the past. This is her third collaboration with songwriter and producer Jeff Tweedy and marks the first time Tweedy has composed an entire album of original songs for Mavis’ legendary voice and a nation she’s uniquely poised to address.

When the first organized Roseland Cinco de Mayo event was held in 2006, it replaced several years of negative confrontations between local law enforcement and spontaneous Cinco de Mayo revelers. Since then, the success of Roseland Cinco de Mayo has helped bolster the idea that the urban eye-sore at Sebastopol Road and West Avenue can be transformed into a thriving neighborhood center.
Today with more than 50,000 attendees under its belt, the Cinco de Mayo festival is an example of how the Roseland community has come together to deliver a non-alcoholic, family-friendly atmosphere that continues to attract wider attention throughout the county and state.
The one-day festival features local entertainment, fun for the kids, informational booths, plenty of food choices, crowning the “Reina del Cinco de Mayo”, Rosie the Trolley shuttling guests to and from the Cinco de Mayo event, and an awesome low-rider car show.
