Shams Band Says...
Friends & Family,
Tonight is the last night of our Schubas residency! We have had an amazing time thus far with all the bands involved. Thank you to those that have come every week, you have seen the smiles on our faces and we truly love you for supporting us.
If you haven't made it out yet, tonight is your night. Look at how how much fun you can have "Roll That Whiskey (w/ Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes)"
Let's call tonight our official "Album Release" and pack Schubas! We will be joined by the (soon-to-be-famous) Archie Powell & The Exports. 93XRT Local Anesthetic is already calling their album Great Ideas In Action one of the "Best In 2012" and the already famed, Young Hines, w/ DJ sets by Mr. Gac.
Doors open at 7:30. Tickets are $6 (Available HERE). 21+. Based on the turnout the last 3 weeks, we'd advise getting them ahead of time. We look forward to partying with you and we love you. Thank you for everything!
See you tonight,
Donnie, Paul, Ben, Doug & Brian

Catch them every Monday in July with different openers. They're rockin' their new album, Cold City, and breakin' out old favorites as well. We've been enjoying The Shams Band for the past 3 years and have shot stills and video of their shows from Chicago Blue Grass & Blues Fest 2012, Lincoln Hall, and even intimate Logan Square Bars like Coles and The Whistler.

ChiIL Live Shows will be back to shoot again at Schubas on the 30th and we're discussing vid interview possibilities. We'll also have a full review of Cold City up soon. In the past, we've given away several copies of their prior CD, Champagne, and show tickets, too, so we'll see what we can do for our readers, moving forward.
We're still editing HD video and will have clips up on YouTube soon, if the band's cool with it, so check back like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often.
I feel like we've watched these guys grow up, physically and musically, over the past 3 years. Check out our Shams Band shots from Do Division 2011 Here and an even earlier show 1-27-11 at Lincoln Hall here.
