    “Super” Percy Wood was raised just up Highway 61 in Duncan, where at 13 his churchgoing grandmother noticed his interest in singing, and encouraged him to form a gospel quartet. Percy idolized Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers, but also was attracted to the differently-soulful secular music of Fats Domino, a tension that continues to influence his work today. He moved to Chicago as a young man, and formed a group called The Injections in the mid-70s, performing around the Chicago area for several years until he was befriended by local bluesman Pervis Scott, and he began singing with Scott’s Oasis band. By the mid-90s had formed His Soul Clique, playing gigs all over Chicago’s south side and south suburbs, eventually landing a coveted Thursday night at Lee’s Unleaded Blues, where he grew a strong following. Like “Black-album”-era Prince, his sets occupy a space somewhere between blues, soul, funk and rock, and the band has a crossover appeal and an uncanny knack for getting audiences of all kinds up on their feet, with rhythmically-dense arrangements and Percy’s rich baritone. He’s one of four soul singers with distinct styles on the Tour, which also features Fantastic L-Roy, Sherman “Moody” Thomas, and JoJo Murray. On the Spring 2010 Chicago Blues Tour, Sat. May 22, he’s appearing at his current home base, the Taste Zodiac Lounge.
    (8:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.)

    If you get a ticket for the 7:30 departure, it’ll drop you at the Taste just in time for Super Percy’s first set.
