Cannonball (SideBar)

Fri, Jan 25 2013, 9:00pm - FREE

(NOTE: Studebaker John and the Maxwell St. Kings were originally scheduled on this night, but had to cancel due to a conflict; we hope to have them back soon)

Cannonball is a group of musicians based in Chicago who connect with the same rock sensibilities and merriment to create an explosive sound rooted in the American folk tradition of blues, country, rock ‘n’ roll and all their offspring; hillbilly; rock-a-billy; folk rock; psychedelic; punk. They play a mixture of original songs and interpretations of personal favorites that veer from swinging rock ‘n’ roll to swaying country blues with detours down musical guitar exchanges between the dual lead guitarists that ride on a freight train rhythm bed. The lineup: Paul Bivans: drums, vocals; Andon Davis: guitar, vocals; Tom Kneesel: pedal steel, guitar, vocals; Mike Krayniak: bass, vocals; and Terry White: guitar, harmonica, vocals.

ANOTHER NOTE:  Due to a studio recording commitment, the first set will be acoustic, with Terry and Tom.  The rest of the band should be there by ten, at which point the usual chaos will resume.
