Sons Of The Never Wrong w/ Will Ryan opening (Folk Rock)

Event Date: 
Friday, October 26, 2012 - 8:00pm
This turbo-charged Altfolk trio from Chicago has won over hearts across the land for over 18 years, as they deliver witty, whimsical songs with their signature soaring vocal harmonies and gorgeous arrangements. In case you're wondering, the Sons are 2 gals and a fella. Their odd ball humor and spontaneous stories ignite their live shows and have earned them a cult-like international following. Combining influences of folk, jazz, pop and rock, their sound is decidedly eclectic, and their energy most definitely electric. Their latest, 6th recording, "On a Good Day...I Am" has received kudos worldwide, has charted #7 on folk radio, and has made the "best of" lists nationwide. Mike Jurkovic (Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange) says: Sons are ..."unafraid to twist, turn, and tumble traditional folk with a daring-do few risk. On A Good Day...I Am is yet another cohesive, loony, affirming, and heart wrenching suite where John Prine takes up residence with Laurie Anderson (while Lou Reed sulks in the corner) and the world is all the better for it.... Literate. Witty. Quirky. Rewarding." "This Chicago trio is a welcome reminder that mischief and meaning need not be opposing values. Their billowy melodies always surprise, and they bring an almost fearless quirkiness to their lyrics. These collisions of the pedestrian and the profound give their music a decidedly modern mix of cynicism and in-your-face romanticism."
