Horseshoe Bender is a drinkin’-and-dancin’ honky tonk band from Aaron Smith and Jess McIntosh. With a focus on rendering classic duets (think George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, etc.) but the chops to tackle whatever inspires them, these two have cultivated a repertoire that spans all of country music, reimagining these songs in ways that are as fresh as they are timeless. They’ve combined powerful harmonies with a choice ensemble of some of Chicago’s most skilled roots musicians and improvisers in Horseshoe Bender, a pitch-perfect tribute to some of the best loved country singers of all time.

The Sapsuckers perform original country/Americana songs that blend humor, heartache, and honky-tonk. Their lively take on country ranges from hillbilly roots to Nashville pop, and their creative lyrics, catchy melodies, and clever stage show has earned them a growing fanbase. The duo (Nikki Grossman: guitar, fiddle, lead vocals; and Joe Hart: guitar, mandolin, vocals) has recorded three albums, including “Don’t Think About Tomorrow Tonight” (2018), co-produced by legendary British producer and engineer John Wood and “Ocooch Mountain Home,” (2015), which received high praise from the likes of fROOTS and Bluegrass Today.
