Kevin Summers – Blues Man



If you look at our Class of 73 classmate Kevin Summers’ social media posts, you’d think he was the last guy to sing the blues. Adorable grandkids, beautiful wife, great kids, out fishing in his favorite spot at every chance, living the dream. But it turns out he is a bluesman – legit! He’s played with some of the hottest blues bands and icons in the Chicago area for years. And he loves every minute.

Kevin is currently playing with The Plant Band, they just performed at Naperville’s Ribfest, and their back out on tour this summer. I’ll let Kevin tell you how this all came about:

I joined the band 10 years ago. We started as a 5 piece and added 3 horns. We play rocking soul Music 🎶 from our early youth, Van Morrison Chicago BST and a scattering of everything. I am NOW a Full Time Musician…All I had to do was quit my job. Great guys to play with at this late stage of my sojourn.

Catch Kevin and the rest of these great guys this summer here –
