American Authors At Subterranean

Typically, I post concerts with a gallery, as Taryn and I take quite a few pictures during the show.  Oddly, this is one of the few shows where that doesn't apply.  And to make things more interesting, the setlist for either band isn't available either.  It's like a black hole, sucking in the memories.  Well, regardless of that conspiracy, I'll fill you in on the details.  The American Authors and Ryan Star put on a show at one of the most intimate venues I have ever been to, Subterranean.  This small, two-story club can only hold few hundred people.  So, getting tickets can be rough, espec

GeneratorX - Live at Bolingbrook Pathways

GeneratorX is a local band based out of Bolingbrook, Illinois.  I have had the pleasure of receiving lessons from Guy Shelley, who is one of two guitarists in the band.  Over the past five or so years, I have developed a bond with Guy, as well as the band.  I enjoy going out and watching them perform.  And let it be known that I have also performed with them a time or two.  The band consists of Dan Droogan (vocals, guitar), Guy Shelley (vocals, guitar, bass, keys), Donna Shelley (vocals, bass, sax, flute), Robin Knapik (drums) and, Joanna Ottley (vocals).  On August 13, the band performed for the 2015 Bolingbrook Pathways Parade on the Performing Arts Stage.  I had the pleasure of watching the band perform from the audience perspective as well as back stage.  The gig went extremely well, covering a large number of chart topping hits, as well as a number of originals.  Inside secret: The stage that they performed on originally belonged to Disturbed.
