Everyone who was everyone in the Blues scene back in the day – played at Theresa’s. Starting in the 50’s right up until it’s closing in the early eighties; Theresa’s was the spot.

Nobody owned Theresa’s, music-wise like Junior Wells. No other musician, not Buddy Guy, not Howlin’ Wolf and not Willie Dixon – held court at Therea’s like Junior Wells. He was the King of Theresa’s.
