Junior Valentine is a guitarist, singer, bandleader and teacher whose nearly 30 years of experience include many styles of blues, rhythm & blues, swing, and American roots music that touch on eras from the 1940s to the present. Valentine has played many venues in Chicago and the West Coast as well as throughout Michigan, and has toured nationally with the James Harman Band.  He is no stranger to the Old Town BluesFest stages, either!

Junior has recently teamed with Jason Wheeler (mandolinist with locally, regionally & nationally popular alt / bluegrass band Fauxgrass) and percussionist Brandan Grinwis to create a gumbo of New Orleans rhythms and funky dance grooves.
