Key West Theater presents: Big Head Todd and The Monsters
Big Head Todd and the Monsters are best known for their platinum-selling record Sister Sweetly, and from that record the hit song "Bittersweet," but have also been fans of blues music since their first days together playing music in high school. In 1997 they recorded a song with John Lee Hooker for their album Beautiful World, but it was in 2011 that the band really delved into the blues with their first Big Head Blues Club project, 100 years of Robert Johnson, which featured guest appearances by BB King, Hubert Sumlin, Charlie Musselwhite, Honeyboy Edwards, and more. That album led to a limited number of tour dates under the Big Head Blues Club moniker that same year. "The Songs of Willie Dixon," tribute is the next chapter in what seems to be becoming a new tradition for the band.
