Our full album is on youtube.com with much more live performances
We've played most of the large venues in Chicago like the House Of Blues & The Metro. We also play smaller club gigs frequently like Martyrs, The Double Door, and The Elbo Room. Our sound is not easily defined but we put all our effort in to making songs full of pure soul. Our sound is evolving into somthing big and we want everyone to be there when we make it. The Band consists of Joe Scully, Tommy Glaviano, Austin Williams, and Mike McAvoy. We also have members that come and go becuase they live out of state, those people are Hana Acuzi and Nate Drews.
Just picked up a show! November 28th at Rocky Vanders (698 Milwaukee Ave, Prospect Heights, IL 60070). Tell your friends, tell your moms, tell your dogs, TELL EVERYBODY! Also, don't forget December 19th at Martyrs' with Marmaletta and The Casual Ties! It'll be one for the ages!!!!
