You contemplate discarding all of your writing utensils, checking your guitar in at the local pawnshop and buying some tighter fitting socks. Adam Carroll definitely has that effect. He's a Songwriter's Songwriter, writing ridiculously amazing songs chock-full of humor, insight and sweet melodies.

MISS BARBARA CLIFFORD & SHAKIN TAILFEATHERS Born and bred in Chicago, she is a 4ft, 11inch singer performing rockin' blues, rockabilly, & soul around Chicago with the help of The Shakin Tailfeathers. For the majority of her adult life, she's been singing all kinds of styles, but her passion has always been Roots-Americana music. Most notable for being 1/2 vocals in THE HONEYBEES, she decided to pursue a solo career. Her first solo album "Introducing Barbara Clifford" is made up of mostly original songs. It was recorded on Blue Lake Records (Switzerland) with the band The Rhythm Storms. Since then, she's performed worldwide and stateside.
THE WOOLLY RHINOS Chicago Rock 'n' Roll band made up of Jack Swain on vocals and guitar,Tom Valenzano on vocals and guitar,Jay Lysaught on bass and Chuck Harling on drums.
John Ballantyne's Crazy Heart & Trick Shooter Social Club
John Ballantyne's Crazy Heart Fast becoming recognized as one of Chicago’s premier country singers and songwriters, Ballantyne was born and raised in Scotland, though you’d never know it from his earthy vocal delivery and immaculate lead guitar. Both resonate with the twang and raunch of classic honky-tonk country, also known these days as Americana. A frequent presence on the Chicago club circuit, John and his band Crazy Heart ( Bassist Gus Noble, and drummer Leslie Walle-Santos) are a band not to miss! Trick Shooter Social Club The Trick Shooter Social Club is a place tucked just behind the beat. It’s a belief in the power of story and the sublime hip sway of a well placed middle eight. It’s cat gut, and pick guards and nods across the stage when it's time to go to the bridge. It’s acoustic, electric and reverent to its heroes. It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join.

Them Guilty Aces is an upbeat and swinging group from Chicago that demands you to get out of your seat and dance.

Each member brings a satisfying and refreshing set of skills as a result of different musical backgrounds and a variety of influences which started at a very young age.
