Nora O'Connor
Nora O'Connor
Nora O’Connor is a Chicago-based musician and singer whose vocal talents are the secret weapon behind some of the city’s top performers and recordings. Nora is currently touring as a back-up singer and multi instrumentalist with The Decemberists. She has spent a good share of years on the road with Andrew Bird, Iron and Wine, Robbie Fulks and her old cow-punk band The Blacks (those were some times!). You can hear Nora on recordings with The New Pornographers, Neko Case, Archer Prewitt (The Sea and Cake) among countless others. Nora possesses a sensitive and honey-sweet vocal delivery, and is a solid sender on guitar -- which is why this lady's phone never stops ringing.  In 2010, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy enlisted Nora O'Connor and Kelly Hogan as a primary vocalists on gospel legend Mavis Staples’ Grammy Award-winning album “You Are Not Alone.”
Sanctified Grumblers
Sanctified Grumblers
Chicago's Sanctified Grumblers formed in the Spring of 2009 when Rick Sherry (Devil in a Woodpile) and Eric Noden started writing songs together. Using only acoustic instruments, they usually play as a trio with either Beau Sample (upright bass) or Mike Hogg (sousaphone). Sanctified Grumblers CD "no lie" features special guests Jim Becker (Califone, Iron & Wine), Mike Reed (People, Places and Things) and Tom V. Ray (bass player for Neko Case & Jakob Dylan)

The band has also performed behind delta blues legend Honeyboy Edwards and Chicago harmonica great Billy Boy Arnold.
Kory Quinn
Kory Quinn
Portland songwriter Kory Quinn, a DIY contemporary hobo intellectual, has a refreshingly homespun take on Americana. Which comes as a very welcome sigh of relief in today's contemporary market. He has spent the last five years playing 1000+ Self-Booked Dates on the road throughout the Pacific Northwest, Midwest and Texas. His travels also span 3 Self-Booked International tours through 7 countries as well.

His second full-length album, "At The End of The Bar", boils down red-dirt basics in a freewheeling roadhouse stew. Quinn's songwriting is adroit and surefooted, offering sturdily constructed country, folk, and Cajun-tinged songs for his ensemble to really sink their fangs into on this instant jukebox classic. The songs are short and sweet but packed with clever lines, sentimental harmonies and twangy fills. All that makes them the kind of songs that hang around your brain like honky-tonk regulars.

On the back of a newly released single, Dead Man's Son, is the next installment in "Chicago/Western", set for release later this year, where Quinn will take the listener through the myriad of styles that define him as an artist.Between road-worn self-penned material, old-time drinking songs and heart rending country standards The Mighty Quinn is the next one to watch out for.
The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit play un-ruined country music, a term Lawrence coined to describe the band’s original, deep-rooted, honky tonk sound. They are 2019 and 2018 Ameripolitan Award nominees, in the Best Honky Tonk Group category, and two-time winner of the “Best Country And Western Entertainer” (Chicago Music Awards).

Best known for his lead vocal on "The Old Black Hen", for the watershed Songs: Ohia- Magnolia Electric Company album, Peters leads the "Outfit" through his own finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar and harmonies, and Josh Piet on upright bass.
The Golden Horse Ranch Band
The Golden Horse Ranch Band
The Golden Horse Ranch Band was formed in 2002. The band plays a raucous set of country tunes, and puts their stamp on some American classics. If the crowd wants to dance, they’ll lay down some square dances, polkas, waltzes, contra, and swing dances in the tradition of old time barn dances. 3rd generation caller Annie Coleman will teach you, in no time, how to swing like thunder and dip the oyster.
Gin Palace Jesters
Gin Palace Jesters
"Chicago's original honky-tonk fools," the Gin Palace Jesters are purveyors of the finest in hard hitting hillbilly Honky-tonk, Country Boogie and Western Swing . Infused with a deep and sincere fondness for all traditional American musical styles, the sound of the Gin Palace Jesters could best be described as being akin to the sounds of Country Music's "Golden" age. Although a portion of their live performances come from their vast catalog of the Hillbilly & Country Hit Parade, these boys are not mere followers or imitators. They also posses the talent of 3 songwriters performing original novelty numbers, heartfelt love songs, honky-tonk weepers, drinking songs and dark ballads. Delivering 3 and 4 part country harmony, the Gin Palace Jesters prove that authentic country and cowboy music can still hold validity in both traditional songs as well as brand new originals. The Gin Palace Jesters are a true authentic American band often seen holding court where the thrones are bar stools, the lights are made of neon, the holy spirits are served on the rocks, and Hank Williams is King.
Chandelier Swingers
Chandelier Swingers
Jon Williams and the Chandelier Swingers are a five-piece Western Swing combo from Chicago, Illinois. Led by guitarist/ vocalist Jon Williams, the group plays a mix of classic swing and original compositions. Williams is joined by pedal steel guitarist Justin Brown (Palliard), electric mandolinist Kenneth Rainey (Tangleweed, The Golden Horse Ranch Band), and the rhythm section of drummer Phil Stosberg (The National Acrobat) and bassist Ben Das.
The Lantern Kickers
The Lantern Kickers
The Lantern Kickers are a traditional string band from Chicago. They delve into the traditions of American old-time and bluegrass music to forge a fresh, contemporary sound.
The Harrow
The Harrow
The Harrow is a new three-piece from Chicago featuring Nate Van Allen (vocals, guitar), Lawrence Peters (drums), and Dan Padgett (vocals, bass). They will be releasing their debut 7" tonight at YMTE. Their music is in the style of the American Songbook, but from the perspective of an outsider looking at America and its many idiosyncrasies. These are not protest songs. They are written in love with the familiar shadowy things about ourselves: gluttony, violence, addiction, spirituality, and self-indulgence.
Honky Tonk Parade
Honky Tonk Parade
Honky Tonk Parade delivers authentic country music from the golden era! Hank Williams, Ray Price, George Jones, Faron Young, Ernest Tubb, Porter Wagoner, Charley Pride, The Statler Brothers, and many more are covered in their shows.
Dan Whitaker & the Shinebenders
Dan Whitaker & the Shinebenders
After being nominated for the 2019 Ameripolitan Awards, touring Nashville and Texas, and opening for acts like Shooter Jennings and James Hand, Dan Whitaker & The Shinebenders are releasing their fourth album “Far, Far Away” August 26th.

“Far, Far Away” was recorded at Kingsize studios in Chicago with Mike Hagler, the engineer who also recorded 2017’s “Anything You Wanted To.” Hagler has worked with artists like Wilco, Neko Case, Billy Bragg, and Jon Langford, among others. The album’s 12 original songs range from honky tonk shuffles, rockers, Western numbers, and instrumentals — a unique mix of roots music that DWSB has come to be known for.

“I like variety,” says Whitaker. “I consider all the different genres of country when writing my songs, because country music has never been about just one thing.”

Dan Whitaker and The Shinebenders have been doing honky tonk their way since 2004. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Dan Whitaker writes from the heart, something he’s been doing for over thirty years. His songs are peopled with the characters you find in honky tonks: the heroes, the sinners, the heartworn, and the lost in love.

Along with Dan, The Shinebenders include fellow Chicago music veterans Tommy “Two Smokes” Mioducki, acoustic guitar and vocals, Earl “T-Bone” Powers, upright bass, and Eric “Chase” Niffenegger, drums. They tour the Midwestern and Texas circuits, and beyond, playing over 70 shows a year. They’ve played many of the finest honky tonks around, like The White Horse, American Legion Post 82, Skinny Dennis and more. At any DWSB gig, no two shows are alike. What’s guaranteed is that you’ll have a darn good time.

Dan Whitaker has been creating independent original music since the mid 1980s in such bands as June Bug Massacre, Great Plains Gypsies, Athletic, The Gyps and Western Grand.
