There is no feeling like walking on a stage when you know the legends who have performed on that stage before you. We could see why those legends keep coming back to this intimate tavern disguised as a music venue. Or maybe it’s a legendary music venue disguised as a tavern. Either way, the crowd of people who PACKED the place to see the band was one of the most responsive and energetic we’ve ever seen.
We also raised some money for the Sportsmens Americana Music Foundation, a charitable organization that brings music instruments and instruction to kids who otherwise would never know the joy of playing music.
In short: WHAT A NIGHT!!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO SEE US!!!
On Saturday, January 13th, the band performed a fundraiser for the Drama and Music departments of Niagara Catholic High School in Niagara Falls. A crowd of Chicago-loving fans and friends of the school braved ridiculously cold winter temperatures — with wind chills well into the double-digit negative Fahrenheits — to hear what the band thought was one of our best-sounding shows. More importantly, 100% of the proceeds from ticket and concession sales (including band merch) went to the school.
The room itself is a “gymatorium”. Anyone who knows anything about acoustics in a high school gym knows that it is not the best place to hold a concert. But this room is much better than a typical gym. It has some of the best acoustics we’ve heard!
