The Shams Band & Derek Nelson were awesome in the second night of The Shams Band's month long residency! Here is their set list and ChiIL Live Shows' original stills from Schubas Tavern Monday night:
In The Sun
We've Never Met
Zan Wit That Lean (Soulja Boy)
Love You The Most
The Des Plaines River
Travel By Sea
Pour Me A Drink
Handle With Care (The Traveling Wilburys)
You Will Never Know
I'm Not Sorry
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.
