Whiskeyfist with The Carolyn Sills Combo
Oct 25 @ 8:00 pm
Shortly after forming in 2015, Whiskeyfist became one of the most in demand live country and southern acts in the Chicago area. Playing a great mix of today’s and yesterday’s hottest country hits, along with some southern rock and classic rock music. With a focus on an energetic, audience-involving performance, and an ever-evolving list of songs that appeals to various musical tastes, the boys bring excitement and energy to every show.
Word is spreading about The Carolyn Sills Combo’s live show, chock full of three part vocal harmonies, dueling guitar and non-pedal steel instrumentals and tight arrangements of their own distinct style of Americana music. Nominated for five Ameripolitan Awards in the last three years, the group took home the trophy in 2018 for Best Western Swing Group.
Their third album, Return to El Paso, slated for release November 1st, is a dramatic re-imagining of a time-honored country classic: Marty Robbins’ “El Paso.” The Carolyn Sills Combo creates a vivid backstory for that evening in El Paso, told from the perspective of each of its characters. They will be touring the Midwest this October in support of this new release. www.carolynsills.com
“Sills and her eclectic combo took to the stage like old pros, as their professional, fun and charming manner won the crowd over in a heartbeat. This is by far one of the coolest shows I’ve been to in quite a while.” – Paste Magazine
