    (hardcover) $45

    Written with insight and flair by MC feature writer Daniel Siwek (with a Foreward by Dan Aykroyd), this lavishly illustrated book (including reproductions of tickets and posters) celebrates the 20th anniversary of the House of Blues. Since opening in 1992 in a converted historical house in Cambridge, MA, HOB has been home to live music, original folk art and delta-inspired cuisine. Today, House of Blues boasts 13 venues across the country where famous musicians have performed, from the Blues Brothers, Bootsy Collins, Al Green and Eric Clapton, to Lenny Kravitz, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg. Concertgoers, music fans and pop culture junkies alike will dig this illustrated account of the story behind the music.
