Old Shoe
Old Shoe
Old Shoe is a five-piece Roots Rock n' Roll band based out of Chicago, Illinois. Made up of talented songwriters from across the country, hailing from as far away as Alaska, the band's compositions paint a diverse landscape of American life.

The band's new album Family is not merely another notch in the belt for Old Shoe, but is more so a poignant culmination of their growth and progress since the last release in 2011. WXRT 93.1FM Chicago radio host, Richard Milne, calls it "...a big time album." In just a little over two years, Old Shoe solidified their strong lineup with keyboardist/mandolinist/vocalist Joe Day and drummer Greg Fundis, rounded the Midwest festival circuit at high-profile events like Summer Camp and Wakarusa, opened for Grammy-award winning Bruce Hornsby, and even produced 3 consecutive installments of their own festival, Shoe Fest.

The all-original 13-track release showcases the band's diverse influences, ranging from bluegrass to prog-rock to jazz, with it all settling into a familiar comfort zone akin to one's favorite "old shoe." The album reaches new heights from previous releases with a star-studded guest roster featuring musicians from the Henhouse Prowlers, The Low Down Brass Band, and Chicago's production of The Jungle Book.

Aritsts At Large: Lowdown Brass Band Horns
Lowdown Brass Band (LDB), hailing from Chicago, is a horn-driven ensemble with strong roots in the New Orleans Second Line Tradition. A fierce sousaphone sets the foundation for trumpets, trombones and saxophones that intertwine in a cacophony of tight lead lines, spontaneous call-and-response and bombastic brass attacks. While taking a page from the jazz and blues giants of the past, LDB melds modern funk, hip-hop, reggae and pop into a unique style. Always a party, Lowdown forges new ground with original compositions that create a high-energy deluge of danceability!
