Old Shoe to release Third Album, Family

Old Shoe will release its 3rd studio album, Family, with a hometown performance at Martyrs’ in Chicago, IL.  The five-piece band will celebrate its all-original 13-track release, which showcases the band’s diverse influences ranging from bluegrass to prog-rock to jazz, with it all settling into a familiar comfort zone akin to one’s favorite “old shoe.”  The album reaches new heights from previous releases with a star-studded guest roster featuring musicians from the Henhouse Prowlers, The Low Down Brass Band, and Chicago’s production of “The Jungle Book”

This record is not merely another notch in the belt for Old Shoe, but is more so a poignant culmination of the band’s growth and progress since their last release in 2011.  In just a little over two years, Old Shoe solidified their strong lineup with keyboardist/mandolinist/vocalist Joe Day and drummer Greg Fundis, rounded the Midwest festival circuit at high-profile events like Summer Camp and Wakarusa, opened for Grammy-award winning Bruce Hornsby, and even produced 3 consecutive installments of their own festival, Shoe Fest.

The band brings it all home on October 11 at Martyrs’ in Chicago, where the family will gather to celebrate Family. Tickets are available at martyrslive.com, and younger fans should note that this is a rare 18 and over show for the legendary Chicago venue.
