Two time Chicago Music Award winners, and 2018 Ameripolitan Award nominees, THE LAWRENCE PETERS OUTFIT, play un-ruined country music, a term LAWRENCE coined to describe their fiery, deep-rooted honky tonk sound.
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.
Born and bred in Chicago, BARBARA CLIFFORD performs rockin' blues, rockabilly, & soul around Chicago with the help of THE SHAKIN’ TAILFEATHERS. For most of her adult life, she's been singing in all kinds of styles, but her passion has always been Roots-Americana music. Most notable for being 1/2 vocals in THE HONEYBEES, she decided to pursue a solo career. Her first solo album "Introducing Barbara Clifford" is made up of mostly original songs. It was recorded on Blue Lake Records (Switzerland) with the band THE RHYTHM STORM. Since then, she's performed worldwide and stateside and now we get to have her all to ourselves for a big round of two-steppin and toe-taggin!
