Highwood, IL, January 12, 2008 – The Chicago SuperBlues Bowl – to be held at The Alley, 210 Greenbay Road, Highwood, IL – features a multi-tiered, all-star line-up, including a genuine blues legend, a popular blues recording star, plus six of the best, hardworking performers on the club and festival circuit today.

The event – which exposes suburban music lovers to some of the best artists in Chicago without having to head into the city up to eight separate times – is designed to raise money for the nonprofit film, Bluesified, being developed in cooperation with the Blues Foundation and the Center for Independent Documentary, by BrandXFilms USA, Inc. and Madtown Media. Bluesified explores the state and future of blues music and culture.
