Guitarist Tab Benoit On Tour With The Whiskey Bayou Revue Throughout 2021

Renowned blues guitarist Tab Benoit brings his celebrated Whiskey Bayou Revue to  Stargazers Theater, for two big nights, Tuesday, June 29th and Wednesday, June 30th.

Showtime: 7:00 pm each night. Tickets: $140. (sold in sections of 4 seats @$140; single tickets not available). 10 S. Parkside Dr., Colorado. Info: (719) 476-2200 or visit 

Opening for Benoit is exciting new Whiskey Bayou Records recording artist Alastair Greene, whose debut disc, The New World Blues, was released to critical acclaim.

Benoit’s recent “Chicago Takeover” featured the Louisiana-based musician performing for six evenings at City Winery earlier this month. “Tab Benoit residency helps usher in the return of live music in Chicago,” writes the Chicago Sun-Times, who also interviewed Benoit. Read the entire interview, here. Benoit continues to add new dates to the tour, including four consecutive nights at the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas, September 9-12 (updated itinerary below).

Benoit and guitarist Samantha Fish teamed up to perform together last November at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium for a live concert streamed worldwide. “This is an artist whose playing speaks to you as much as his lyrics do,” wrote Music Connection magazine, reviewing Benoit’s Ryman show set. “What Tab lacked in theatrics he made up for with a warm and disarming stage presence and heartfelt playing.” 

The Grammy-nominated Benoit was selected a “30 Best Blues Guitarist In The World Today” by Guitar World  in 2020 and also co-authored recently-released book, Blues Therapy, about the blues and mental illness.

Benoit, who throughout his thirty-plus career has always been known for his environmental activism,  performed two nights in his hometown of Houma at the memorable 16th Annual Voice of the Wetlands Festival.  He also appears prominently in the IMax motion picture Hurricane on the Bayou, a documentary of Hurricane Katrina’s effects and a call to protect and restore the Wetlands, and produced a CD to help restore that state’s Coastal Wetlands. Benoit was inducted into the Louisiana Folklife Center Hall of Master Folk Artists in the Spring of 2020.

Whiskey Bayou Records is a partnership between Benoit and his  partner and manager, Rueben Williams. The label has thus far released albums by such established and up-and-coming artists as Eric McFadden, JP Soars, Alastair Greene, Damon Fowler, Eric Johanson, Jeff McCarty, and Dash Rip Rock.
