Midnight Friars specializes in 70s Jam Band music. We cover Grateful Dead, Phish, Traffic, The Who, The Doors, David Bowie, The Beatles..
The songs are not what you would typically hear from a “classic rock band,” but rather are those tunes you love, but most “cover” bands don’t play. The hidden gems. And, of course, we nail them.
Our goal is to surprise, entertain, and – of course – get you up and dancing!
Formed in the summer of 2014, Still Shine is a group of like-minded, seasoned musicians blending acoustic roots and progressive bluegrass.
Mixing mandolin, harmonica, banjo, acoustic guitar, upright bass, and tight harmonies they quickly gained a following around Central Illinois area and the local Midwest. They have shared the stage with artists such as The Leadfoot Band, Cornmeal, Split Lip Rayfield, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Larry Keel, Chicago Farmer and the Waydown Wanderers just to name a few. Along with some well received original music, the band performs an upbeat, energetic show you won’t want to miss!
These river town pluckers are sure to get your toes tappin’, your boogie movin’ and your Shine on!!
