HEAVYWEIGHTDUB! Live at The Wild Hare This Friday 7/29

Friends and Fans of HEAVYWEIGHTDUB! we are alive and well! It’s been a tough life stretch the past few months, and I haven’t been able to take care of the band as much as I would like. We have had many lineup changes over the past year and a half, but we are still plowing ahead with the original core of the band still intact. We are in the middle of a new recording that we hope to have out in the next few months. We have a big show coming up this Friday, July 29 at The Wild Hare in Chicago with Special Guests Ifficial Reggae Movement. We hope to see some of you there! – Ted

HEAVYWEIGHTDUB! To Make Wild Hare Debut 1/27/15

wild_hare_1_27_15I’m finding that many people didn’t realize that The Wild Hare is open AND has live music once again. For those unaware, the venue has moved from it’s longstanding location in Wrigleyville to it’s new location at 2610 N. Halsted. The club was in a battle for it’s entertainment license for a long time but music resumed a few months ago. For anyone involved in the Chicago Reggae scene these past 30 years, the Wild Hare has been an indispensable venue. I played my first Reggae shows in Chicago there back in the early/mid 90’s, but saw many more shows there when I was a teenager in the 80’s. The Wild Hare has an important role in bringing Reggae fans and musicians of all persuasions together in this city and is an important venue for all Reggae touring acts. I’ve been in a number of times since they re-opened and the food is outstanding. The room is great – although smaller than the previous venue I prefer the atmosphere of the new location. HEAVYWEIGHTDUB! will be making it’s Wild Hare debut on Tues, Jan 27 with special guest DJ Shottas. We hope that you will come hear us. If you can’t make it that night, please stop in the club soon and support the music and the venue. Chicago without the Wild Hare would be like Chicago without Joe & Wayne Segal’s Jazz Showcase. These are institutions that we would miss dearly if they were to disappear tomorrow. Take advantage of their existence and help them continue to keep the doors open!

The Dub Connection 11/20/14 – Dub & Bones

I’m pleased to announce that our Dub Connection series at The Whistler has been extended at least through May 2015. Thanks to all who’ve come out to support the music! Please help us spread the word, and those that haven’t been yet – what are you waiting for? Next one is 11/20 – we’ll celebrate the sound of the Trombone in Jamaican music and pay tribute to cats like Don Drummond, Vin Gordon, Rico Rodriguez and Nambo Robinson, featuring our own badass Trombonist Matthew Davis and special guest Andrew Zelm of the drastics and Lowdown Brass Band. Thanks to Billy, Eric, Charles, and the whole staff at the Whistler.
