After the Gov’t Mule show at Monarch Music Hall, head to Kenny’s for the Official Afterparty featuring an Old Shoe & David Gans tribute to Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead!
About Old Shoe:
Old Shoe is a five-piece Roots Rock n’ Roll band based out of Chicago, Illinois. Made up of talented songwriters from across the country, hailing from as far away as Alaska, the band’s compositions paint a diverse landscape of American life.
2017 brought the follow up to the band’s 2013 album, Family. Country Home is an all-original 13-track release, which finds Old Shoe in search of their ‘Country Home’. Written over the course of the last couple years with a good portion of the tunes being written in Oneida County, Wisconsin at a country home. Recorded at the same studio as Family, I.V. Labs Studio in Chicago. Engineered, mixed and co-produced by Chris Harden.
In the last couple years, Old Shoe has continued to round the Midwest festival circuit at high-profile events like Summer Camp and Wakarusa, opened for Grammy-award winning Bruce Hornsby, Greenksy Bluegrass, Leftover Salmon, and Keller Williams and even produced 7 consecutive installments of their own festival, Shoe Fest.

About David Gans:
A David Gans “solo electric” performance is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match – it’s never the same show twice, but it’s always worth a listen.
