Reckless Ones are rock ‘n’ roll, plain and simple. Not concerned with the electronic sounds of the modern day but an honest statement in this phony world. A sound from the heart that doesn’t apologize for anything. Reckless Ones are a three-man gang, pitting themselves against the world, doing it all alone. You won’t see a band this hard-working outside of the movies. Giving it their all to deliver dynamic sets for each unsuspecting crowd, proudly quashing the hippest of hipsters’ notions, setting everyone’s feet flying, and by the end of the night, everyone’s feeling reckless.
EAST SIDE WILDCATS
Little is known about these hooligans other than they rock and you better stay off of their turf. Rumor has it they met in a juvenile detention center on the east side of Chicago in the late 70’s. Their live performances are legendary often ending in the band being taken off the stage in handcuffs by the authorities. The Illinois supreme court has ordered that the fire marshall must attend all their shows in case he has to shut them down for overcrowding and rioting. The only thing they respect is Rock n Roll.
Hitting up bars and coughing up tar, Shotgun Gambling is coming at you like that mortgage you gambled away on the roulette table. Shotgun combines the energy from a dirty punk rock basement with the atmosphere of a high class biker car. With a wide range of punk and rockabilly influences, varying from Cock Sparrer, Stray Cats, Zero Boys, and Dropkick Murphys, what may seem like just a punk rock band is more than it appears to be. Shotgun’s biggest influence is old school rock and roll, with influences like Del Shannon, Frankie Valli, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. When you go to a Shotgun Gambling show, you’ll never know what to expect, but make sure you bring your dancing shoes- and a pack of band-aids.
