Some cool shows on the books in many forms!

PETTY CASH debuts their goods at Adobe Gila's in Lincoln Park on Friday April 15th.  Check this out, Anyone attending the show that prints out the invite can receive 10% off their bill that night! No joke! You get 10% off your BILL!!!!  How's that for a promotion!

KING MIXER.  WTF is a King Mixer?  Great local artist, loooong time friend of ours, Eric Howell has been chugging it out in the scene for as long as we have.  That would be the age of the DINOSAURS.   Anyway, he was very kind in asking Spiv, Flambo Tony and Mr. Glynn (Red Pop Fury) to be his band for promoting his new record.  Somewhat obliged as old school rock and rollers carrying the torch, we gladly said yes and the rehearsals have kicked in.  A handful of shows have been planned for 2016, the first being at RED LINE TAP in Chicago on Tue, April 19th.  Come see what the fuss is all about!

SPIV kickin' more solo acoustic HELL at posh Chicagoland hotels this month, par usual - come get your hell on.

RED POP FURY has a couple of shows with the Simons lineup in early May - plan accordingly.

Rock on and order your Guns N Roses tickets.

Spiv - Magnificent person.

News:

First and Foremost - thanks to all who came out to the PETTY CASH 100TH gig @ Qbar!!  Great crowd, great rock and roll and great tiny cake that we shared a forkful with everyone in attendance.  Didn't matter, since the band got paid $65,275 for those amazing two sets. More shows on the books - www.pettycashband.com   

Second and Foremost in second position (second foremost?)  Thanks to all who crawled out of the woodwork for a somewhat private/public SIMPLE SIMON show at Roundhouse in Aurora.  Albeit the Simons dished out a wide array of cool covers all night for what was supposed to be a private party booked public - the word got out and it was absolutely humbling to re-connect with friends from the glory days. Happy 50th Sue-Z and ROCK on  everyone else in the Simons world.

Progress, New Music, Things to look forward to:

JAVELINAS now has a FACEBOOK page.    https://www.facebook.com/Javelinaschicago   The now "part of rock and roll history" band is up for the gawking.  Reverbnation site up as well as song clips, video clips etc.  Please go pay your respects to this amazing 'gone too soon' band.

FROSTING is in the communications phase of starting to hit the rehearsal pad again.  Lots of material to begin working on with high hopes for 2016.

SIMPLE SIMON is looking very forward to 2016's presentation/booking of the 20th anniversary of their 2006 release "SUPERSTAR"  An intense task at hand (18 tracks on the record), look forward to the live show of one of the bands personal favorite 'coming of age' releases.

VON ETHER - A Kentland related project (Spiv plays gtr) - VE has recorded the first of many blistering, soulful female fronted off the rails tracks at Trigger recording in Chicago.  Can't let the cat out of the bag just yet, but WOW - be prepared.

RED POP FURY is just f**king amazing.  We all know that.   Well, recently a good friend of Simple Simon/RedPop Fury, local singer/songwriter/performer Eric Howell cordially requested one of the 7500 versions of RED POP FURY (Spiv, Flambo, Glynn)  to be the core backing band for his original project "King Mixer".  A Loooong time friend, RPF graciously accepted and have hit the rehearsal room since.  A few shows slated in 2016, including International Pop Overthrow and Taste of Chicago are on the books with more to come.  Details to follow.

Spiv/Matt Friscia project:  Stay tuned...........


Spiv - solo acoustic HELL.  No promotion here, except for a little personal blurb that on 3/30/2016, Spiv will be playing solo acoustic on his 20th wedding anniversary.  "A gig on your 20th Anniversary"  you should be ashamed!!  Well, let's just say that there's nobody except for the wife of a musician who can tell the truth of what it's like to be the wife of a musician.  Extremely grateful and humbled I (Spiv) am to have been supported by an amazing woman who has given to and been through so much with me.  OMG. Do you like me?  __Y  __N.  20yrs.  TWENTY YEARS. No there won't be a facebook post or tweet or anything like that "oh baby, you're my ROCK, my soulmate, whenever I see a pretty cloud formation or perfectly plated seafood dish, I think of you" - No - that's not how we roll... Twenty years of marriage says more than a blurb on the internet.   I don't need a reason, but many of you on this list were a part of that wedding and/or have been in our lives for 20+ years.  Thanks you for being a part of this crazy, amazing ride of life.  "The Buds" 2016.

Rock on!
Spiv

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!

SPIV
