Sugar Blue and The Lee Boys Join Leftover Salmon on New Year’s Eve

Leftover Salmon celebrated New Year’s Eve at Chicago, IL’s The Vic Theatre. The Lee Boys opened the show as part of the two band’s multi-night run. In addition, Grammy winning Chicago blues musician Sugar Blue joined Leftover Salmon for a good chunk of their set. The harmonica player—who also played on key Rolling Stones tracks like “Miss You” and “Some Girls”—emerged a few songs into Leftover Salmon’s first set for “Walls Of Time,” “Aquatic Hitchhiker,” “Meet Me In The Morning,” “Bosco Stumble” and “Singin The Blues.”

Leftover Salmon returned to the stage shortly before midnight with Sugar Blue in tow for their second set. They kicked things off with “Here Comes The Night” and, as the ball dropped, busted into “Auld Lang Syne” and “Carnival Time.” Sugar Blue remained onstage for the rest of the evening. Later in the night, Lee Boys pedal steel player Roosevelt Collier joined the festivities for “Unplug Your Telephone,” “This Is The Time,” “Little Red Rooster,” “Up On The Hill Boogie,” “Who Stole My Monkey” and “Get No Better.” The lone encore of “Ain’t Gonna Work” closed the night.
