Over the last year, Epiphone and the John Lee Hooker Foundation have been celebrating the career of the 'Crawling Kingsnake,' Mr. John Lee Hooker, one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century whose disciples include Carl Perkins, Carlos Santana, Van Morrison, Peter Wolf, Bob Dylan, and Bonnie Raitt.

If you're in the San Francisco area in February, check out the All Star Boom Boom Blues Event in honor of Hooker's incredible discography and career. The event will take place Sunday, February 18 at 3pm at Club Fox in Redwood City and will feature Zakyia Hooker, the Bobby Young Project, and special guests.  Epiphone is a proud sponsor of the event with all proceeds going to the John Lee Hooker Foundation. 

Visit the official John Lee Hooker website for more details and also check out our tribute to the King of the Boogie as well as his favorite Epiphone, the Sheraton II PRO, or as Mr. Hooker liked to call it, an "outdid 335."
