In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Marty Salzman, an independent artist manager, talks about the background of blues music. Historically, black artists performed blues for black audiences in the Southside of Chicago. Salzman lists some of the famous blues clubs in the Southside, such as the Checkerboard Lounge and the 708 Club. Eventually, blues gained a white audience and soon there were white and black blues players. Salzman explains that more and more clubs opened on the Northside, such as Blues Etcetera. Also in this segment, Salzman discusses the club scene today. He claims that there were more clubs twenty years ago then now. He shares his belief that this is because people don’t have to go out anymore to see performances. Easy access from technology like DVDs and Pay-Per-View has quieted the club scene.
