Chicago, IL This January, Old Shoe will return to Davenport for their first performance in town since River Roots Live last summer. The band will also be touring in Colorado in January and host the second annual installment of Snow Shoe in February in their hometown of Chicago. The five-piece band will be touring in support of its all original 13-track release, Family, 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.”

Family 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 three consecutive installments of their own festival, Shoe Fest.

After a successful first year in Kankakee, IL, Snow Shoe will move to Chicago for 2014. The indoor festival-themed event will be held in The Volcano Room at The Bottom Lounge on Saturday, February 15th and will feature a potent line-up of local and regional musical talent, along with live artists and local vendors.
