I will always remember a night in the 1970s, sitting at a small table in the Fairfield VFW hall watching my friend Bruce play drums for an old man country and western band. Of course my pals and I thought it was hilarious that a cool guy like Bruce would stoop to playing such square music as "The Key's In the Mailbox" and "Heartaches by the Number." Flash forward to present day Chicago. I've been playing traditional country music as part of the Gin Palace Jesters for more than twelve years. We've taken our brand of American music to Texas, California, Canada, Germany and Finland. And even when it's very late and we're unloading our equipment after a long drive home, I take great pride in what we do. We entertain.
