Old Shoe is a five-piece Americana Roots Rock 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.
The band's new album Family is not merely another notch in the belt for the Old Shoe, but is more so a poignant culmination of their growth and progress since the last release in 2011. In just a little over two years, Old Shoe solidified their strong lineup with keyboardist/mandolinist/
Cosmic Railroad is a jam band based out of southeastern Wisconsin, born sometime in 1999. As the story goes, all the guys in Cosmic Railroad were involved with their own respected bands. These bands would book shows together from time to time, then they began having a jam session at the end of those nights, consisting of everybody from both bands at once.
Sometimes you would have four guitar players, two bass players, two drummers, a percussionist and a whole slew of singers all at once on stage, throwing it down. This is when the idea of “Cosmic Railroad” was conceived. At first, the bands would cover a lot of tunes from “The Grateful Dead, Phish, Dylan, etc.” Then, as things started to take off even more the bands thought it would be a good idea to learn each other's songs so they didn’t always have to play cover tunes when they got together. Over time, they did away with the other bands and started to book shows as Cosmic Railroad. This is what they've been doing since.
Evergreen was founded in October of 2010 by Isaac Young and Brendan Demet, who shaped their guitar playing for six years before forming Evergreen with Ed Kosmatka. They quickly began frequenting Milwaukee venues such as The Miramar Theatre, where they earned a reputation for their concerts, with unique set lists each night featuring original compositions and a few classic covers, sewn together with boundless improvisation.
