“The mayor of Benderville”, renowned blues guitarist Tab Benoit, makes its triumphant return to the headliner of the 7th edition Big Blues Bender, at the Westgate Resort & Casino, from Thursday September 9 to Sunday September 12. Tickets / Info: (702) 518-3222 or visit Benoit performs at the Baller Party (Thursday September 9; 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.); on the pool stage with Alastair Greene and Corey Duplechin (Friday September 10; 5:45 pm-7:15pm); headlines at the International Theater (Saturday September 11, 10 p.m.-11:45 p.m.); and the Big One in the Bender Ballroom: Midnight Ramble by Tab Benoit (Sunday, September 12; 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.), immediately followed by the Bender Brass Wrap Party, from 2:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. (always longer) .

Benoit earned the nickname “Mayor of Benderville” due to his memorable major all-night musical jams each year with notable guest musicians, while also performing often on drums and guitar. Tab and the Bayou Whiskey Review 2021 are on tour throughout 2021 (full itinerary below).

Benoit’s recent “Chicago Takeover” featured the Louisiana-based musician performing six nights in June at the famous City Winery. “The Tab Benoit Residence helps usher in the return of live music to Chicago,” writes the Chicago Sun-Times, which also interviewed Benoit. Read the full interview, here. Benoit continues to add new dates to the tour, including four consecutive nights at the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas, September 9-12 (updated itinerary below).

Tab and guitarist Samantha Fish performed together last November at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium for a live concert that was broadcast around the world. “He’s an artist whose acting speaks to you as much as his lyrics,” Music Connection magazine wrote, reviewing Benoit’s entire Ryman show. “What Tab was lacking in theatrical matters he made up for with a warm and disarming stage presence and sincere acting.”
