DAN WHITAKER & THE SHINEBENDERS Dan Whitaker and The Shinebenders are a band of honky tonkers from Chicago, who have been playing together since the early 2000s. Led by singer, songwriter, and guitarist Dan Whitaker, the band has released three original albums while actively touring to promote their independent releases. The Shinebenders include fellow Chicago music veterans Tommy "Two Smokes" Mioducki on acoustic guitar and vocals, Earl "T-Bone" Powers on upright bass and Eric "Chase" Niffenegger on drums. At any DWSB gig, no two shows are alike. Dan draws from his deep collection of originals about honky tonks and heartbreak, blending them with country classics deep from the vault. They're honored to be nominated for the 2019 Ameripolitan Awards as best Honky Tonk Band. Their latest album, Anything You Wanted To, was recorded by Mike Hagler at Kingsize Soundlabs in Chicago and released Fall 2017. The album brings together western swing, rock and roll, country-jazz and hillbilly songs to create DWSB’s one-of-a-kind sound. Dan Whitaker has been creating independent original music since the mid 1980s in such bands as June Bug Massacre, Great Plains Gypsies, Athletic, The Gyps and Western Grand. https://www.facebook.com/shinebenders/ https://www.danwhitaker.com

WORKING MOTHER We’re like your mom in the 70s before she had you. She drove a pickup, rode horses, and was as sweet as a cold beer on a hot & dusty summer day. https://www.facebook.com/pg/workingmotherband/about/?ref=page_internal
