We’re very excited to anounce that HEAVYWEIGHTDUB! will be starting a steady Tuesday night gig at The Wild Hare in Chicago. The residency will kick off on 2/24 @ 9:30. The Wild Hare has been a vital Chicago institution since 1985, and has hosted a who’s who of Reggae artists over the years. We are honored to be invited to become part of the Wild Hare family. The Wild Hare and it’s owners have been to hell and back to keep this club open. If you don’t know the history of the battle the club had to fight in order to host live music at the new location,2610 N. Halsted Ave) do a web search (click here for one example). The owners have sacrificed so much and fought so hard in order to keep the Hare open so that people can still experience LIVE Reggae music on a regular basis. The venue is so important, not just for Chicagoans, but for touring acts coming through the Midwest, it is an Oasis. The Wild Hare got the nickname of “Reggae Capital USA” for a reason. We want to help them restore that title and give it even more punch. What can you do? Come out on Tuesdays starting 2/24! You’ll have a chance to hear the band evolve on a weekly basis. We are all about helping to create a home base for Reggae & Dub lovers in Chicago. Check out the club even if we’re not playing. There is live Reggae Wed-Sun as well. Special parking rates at the Home Depot garage across the street. They’re serving killer food there now as well. It’s well worth it even to just grab a bite. There is a Reggae and Dub revival happening in Chicago – be a part of it!
