PIE EYED PETE & THE NEW DEALERS (9:30 pm): Pie Eyed Pete's seventh, latest, and greatest release, “Workingman’s Paradise” features a stable of seasoned Chicago music veterans along with a dozen rip-roarin’, beer-pourin’, leave-‘em-wantin’-more’n’ tunes. Recorded in Libertyville, IL and Chicago IL by the supple hands of Pie Eyed Pete, Chris Harden and Ed Tinley and rounded out with strong supporting performances by luminaries Ike Reilly, multi-talented John Pirruccello, long time guitarist Jim O’Donnell and his trusted drumming friend Phil Levin, Workingman's Paradise is a disk that is equal parts tobacco-soaked vocals and whiskey-soaked guitars, the result is a heady brew of a life lived to its limits, both with and without regrets. It’s a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll and a whole lot of bar room sing along!
