Diamondback with The Damn Lonesomes

Jun 22 @ 7:30 pm


Classic Country and so much more by Chicago’s hardest working band, Diamondback!The band’s extensive song list is truly a history of country and, for that matter, American pop music. They specialize in Classic Country but are just as convincing playing oldies, country rock, southern rock, modern country and Americana.

Michael McKeehan (Bass) and Reva Goodman (Rhythm Guitar) have fronted the band for the last 16 years and handle the lion’s share of lead vocals. The band is rounded out by Lee Borek on Lead Guitar and vocals and Jamie Gallagher on Drums and vocals. The addition of multi-instrumentalist Pat Keiner (steel guitar, mandolin and 2nd lead guitar) adds a new texture to the sound. The vast repertoire promises something for everyone. Playing long hours and late nights at Chicago’s only real Honky-Tonk creates an organic tightness that is hard to describe. 100 years plus of collective playing experience makes this an act you shouldn’t miss.
Diamondback is best known for their long residency at Carol’s Pub, the North-side nightclub voted by Chicago Magazine readers as “the best after-hours bar.”

The Damn Lonesomes
There’s a special kind of chemistry in a Damn Lonesomes show—an intimacy and connection between Whiskey Jack Untz (Frankie Valli, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Brian Setzer), Mark Lonsway (Terri Clark, Mickey Guyton, Mallory Hope), and Shannon Cain that’s immediately contagious. After years spent sharing stages in some of Nashville’s most storied venues—The Bluebird Café, The Listening Room Café, Douglas Corner—these close friends and veteran talents now join forces for a project that showcases their broad range of styles in new ways. In the tradition of roots and Americana music, their sound ranges from rock and blues, to pop, folk and jazz, with lyrics steeped with imagery and authenticity. But take note that this is no songwriter showcase—these seasoned performers take the stage with a rare intensity and deliver a show that leaves audiences on their feet.
