Just before COVID hit we were the only local band to open for Cole Swindell and Scottie McCreery at the Joliet Stadium for Country Days. We do Y2K type country music, but do throw in some Cash and June Carter. We also do current tunes as well. Female sang Miranda, Martina, Jennifer, and others and our closer is always Cheryl Crow's Sweet Child O Mine. Practice once a week. Bass player and female singer quit shortly after covid. They recently married and are concentrating on the house, etc.Have the bass player replacement just need the singer.
