Midnight Sun Soul Band - Chicago

Being that Sunday is literally our only off day, it's the time whereas the Peabody crew gets to get out and about and see whats happening. I gotta speak up on an awesome band who's home is right here in Chi-town. Robert Collazo (Midnight Sun Band Member),a friend of ours who we originally met as a customer, hipped me to this spot where he play's weekly. Honestly it took me awhile to make it there but when I finally did, I was hooked. I check them out semi-regularly whenever time permits. Even ran into Eric Johnson (Drummer) who we've known for quite some time as well. If you like sounds such as Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang, Motown, Kay-gees, etc. Midnight Sun doesn't miss a beat or a note.... Early arrival suggested, Last time I stepped in, had the pleasure of hearing a guest appearance Cicero Blake who is a Chicago legend and also in the world of record collecting, has many titles sought after by record collectors worldwide. One being "You Gonna Be Sorry" on the Mar-V-Lus label out of Chicago. Back to Midnight Sun... What I'm talking about here is a big soul band. Complete with keys, Guitars, Percussion Area, Drummers, Excellent vocalist And full horn section. These guys and gals are, and have been established life long musicians/artist, which it shows. 5 stars if you ask me... Click their website link below to see their history and band members.
