Guitar Shorty Famous Daves LR WM-7956

Blues recording artist Guitar Shorty has been touring with his Nady wireless system for the past 15 years. Right out of high school at the age of 16, Shorty joined Ray Charles and his band. At the age of 17 he recorded under the direction of Willie Dixon on the Cobra label. Shorty has played with T-Bone Walker, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard and Sam Cooke. In 1961, Shorty married Marcia Hendrix and became Jimi’s brother-in-law.

Shorty’s wireless roaming while delivering searing blues leads has become a highlight of his performances. He has credited Nady Wireless as a major contributor to his live guitar tone.
