My little interview with Chicago Singer – Songwriter Michael McVady. Hope you enjoy. Smooth, contemporary songwriting with the hint of a good 70’s cognac.
We talk about songs, recording on the the lake Michigan beaches and open fire hydrants in the hot Chicago Summer.
Our next live taping will be Wed. September 18th at Blue Island Beer Company 6-9pm. I will be interviewing Becky Levi Andy Seagram and Erin Edmister. Free, Kids Ok.
This Saturday March 24 we’ll be playing at my favorite dive bar on the Southside, Bernice’s Tavern.
We lost Bernice last year but her boys still keep the coolers running and the mix of locals and kool kids keep coming in. Settle in at this joint for a couple a pops and you’ll see why this little bar is consistently ranked as one of the best dive’s in the city. The routine at B’s? Stingo on Wednesday, Open Mic on Thursday, Mike’s night on Friday and Bands on Saturday leaves Sunday available for Steve’s crazy Bloody Marys. How do I know all this? Well, you can just say that a friend of mine told me.
We will get started at 9:30 with a mini solo set from myself, Jimbo Delta and BC Carter. Then a full set with the band.
See you out there.
