News:

Been a great summer/fall with a bunch of on and off the radar shows, thanks to all who came out!

SIMPLE SIMON:  Anniversary show 11/14/2015!  This marks the anniversary of the Simple Simon 3rd, 1995 release "Focus". In retrospect, this was a transitional record for the Simons, moving away from the harder-edged rock somewhat funk (curse that word) groove-driven music to more melodic throws, eventually spawning years more of what seem to be early threads of the independent alt rock genre.  This would also be the final record for the Simons' original drummer since the teen years, Dino Meo.  Recorded at a place called Thunderclap Recording, it also was the first Simon record without Dino Manzella at the recording desk.  The opening track "Lost My Faith" received a fair amount of local and regional airplay, and Alt/Rock Chicago Station Q-101 featured a live version of "Juvenile" recorded at what was then Dome Room.  The live compilation benefited Clara's House, a shelter for women.

I will say that the 20th anniversary shows the past two years have brought us together as band/community in many heartfelt ways, however as I step back and look at the timeline, it's really about the creative period of three band mates that lived, eat and slept rock and roll for years.  That said, current 20th anniv. rehearsals are fun as hell as we go through each song and describe, in detail, how we wrote the songs, where we wrote the songs, atmosphere, vibe etc.  Sooo... we just sit in our practice spot and reflect on just how f**king awesome it is to be SIMPE SIMON. In all honesty, it's great to be able to re-live giant  parts of your lives where music was such a big factor from back in the day when we were all young and innocent.  Yeah, well, enough of that.  Ticket link above and right here if you haven't got yours!   http://elboroomlive.com/event.cfm?id=218212

Come on out to the show - it's pretty much the show you want to be a part of - old school, no frills, amazing banter rock and roll like it was meant to be.

More news as more news comes!!

Rock on!
