The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit play un-ruined country music, a term Lawrence coined to describe the band’s original, deep-rooted, honky tonk sound. They are 2019 and 2018 Ameripolitan Award nominees, in the Best Honky Tonk Group category (cast your vote at http://vote.ballotblaster.com/#/webBallots/79), and two time winners of the “Best Country And Western Entertainer” (Chicago Music Awards)
Best known for his lead vocal on "The Old Black Hen", for the watershed Songs: Ohia- Magnolia Electric Company album, Peters leads the "Outfit" through his own finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar and harmonies, and Josh Piet on upright bass.
Los Gallos play a danceable blend of Norteno/Tex–Mex, Cumbia and Roots Rock with nods to Los Lobos, Texas Tornados, The Blazers and The Iguanas. From diverse musical backgrounds and influences, Los Gallos came together over their shared love of Mexican music and American roots music…
Saddle up and grab yourself another round of beers!
Horseshoe Bender is a brand new team of some of the hardest working musicians in Chicago’s vibrant roots music scene. Comprised of current and former members of Joybird, Bowlcut, Growler, Glass Mountain, and The Henhouse Prowlers, and led by the dynamic duet of Jess McIntosh and Aaron Smith, the group is a new old-fashioned honky tonk outfit like no other. This ragtag team of old time revivalists, jazz improvisers, and bluegrass shredders has joined forces with a shared love of classic country music and three goals in mind: to pay tribute to the country and western voices that have inspired them, to give you a reason to dance, and to justify that extra round of beers.
And justify they will, because this band is as hot as it gets. With the promise of fresher-than-fresh takes on timeless songs from the likes of George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, and more, what else could you ask for? Horseshoe Bender is here, so grab your dancing shoes, pick a partner, and get on the dance floor!
