The Band Of Heathens
Saturday October 24, 2020    7:30 p.m.
Tickets:  $30.00  

The Band of Heathens’ first two releases were live recordings and the funky, soulful, rootsy sounds on those live records would come to be the band’s hallmark. "People say, ‘What kind of music do you play,’ and we say, ‘Rock and roll,’” Quist says. "And it’s always like, ‘Oh, rock?’ ‘No, not rock, rock and roll, with the roll in it.’ Because the roll implies a groove and a funkiness that modern rock just does not have.… We’re a rock and roll band.”

His stellar songwriting skills are especially exhibited in a song Will wrote when he was just 14 called: Waiting on Yesterday.  Since that time, Corky has invited Will to join him on stage at both the 2015 and 2016 world-renown Chicago Blues Festival stages.  The now 19 year old Tilson has also caught fire and the attention of Chicago and legends like Buddy Guy.  We feel his meteoric ascent definitely isn’t waiting on anything.
