Buddy Guy and Robert Cray

If you've ever listened to blues, you've listened to both of these guys, whether you knew it or not. If not their own blues standards, you've heard their influence on Clapton, Hendrix, and the way guitar is even played (Cray has a model of Fender Strat named after him). Seeing them live will be even more of a spectacle--Buddy Guy is known for playing guitar with a pair of drumsticks, and occasionally his teeth (no promises on that one these days). The casino isn't always the most inspiring place, but seeing these two legends in one night will be worth all the money you make and lose. MARY PAULINE DIAZ
