This month we have Alewife making their debute appearance at the Chef on Saturday June 18th. Be sure to make reservations cuz these guys are a lot of fun and ya don't wanna miss 'em!

Here a little info on the boys...

Alewife begins with spiritual access to the lunar pull of tides and sand, fueled by the swinging equatorial sounds of Santo & Johnny, sparked along the way by the midcentury soundtrack giants like Yma Sumac, Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota and Antonio Carlos Jobim, while slurping hungrily on a shot of loamy adrenaline from the surf guitar wizardry of Ventures after they'd dosed on Hawaii Five O, then seasoned with the seductive classic melodies and rhythms of Puerto Rico, Colombia and Cuba ... fill to the rim with ice, shake vigorously, and pour out a cool cocktail.

Look for new food specials and specials in the bar as well. Saturday night June 18th the drink special is a Bird of paradise w/ collector mug for $15, that's right, for $15 you get the drink and you keep the mug! So come on out, have some pupus, a tropical libation or two, and enjoy the melodic sounds Alewife.

FREE raffle photo will be up next weekend so stay tuned...

Since 2003, the Chicago-based Crown Vics have been bringing audiences their intrepid blend of 1950’s birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll and R&B showstoppers.

Sorry for the late notice, should have posted this last week...

This month we have The Exotics from Milwaukee making their debute appearance at the Chef on Saturday August 20th. Be sure to make reservations cuz these guys are goina fill the house!

In case you've never heard of these kats, here's a little info...

The Exotics formed in the Winter of 1994 and began their career playing to capacity crowds starting with their very first show. Maybe the surf explosion was fueled by the newly released movie Pulp Fiction, or maybe it was just time for something different in a music scene dominated by long haired hard rockers. The Exotics didn't care why, they were just enjoying the ride. After hitting every possible venue in the Milwaukee, they began playing farther and farther from their home base. They became a regular act at Lee's Liquor Lounge in Minneapolis and played many live music venues in Chicago at eight week intervals. The Exotics continued to play any city that would have them in a ten hour radius. Hundreds of gigs, one single and one LP later, the Exotics disbanded at the end of 1999. In 2005 the boys reformed the band and made featured appearances on the long running public radio program “A Prairie Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor and at the festival Chicago Exotica. In 2009 The Exotics unearthed the long lost recordings originally intended as the follow up to their now legendary “Go Go Guitars” LP. This album was shelved for more than ten years and subsequently forgotten during the band's all too long hiatus. That is until now! With their chemistry still intact and their sound stronger than ever, The Exotics are up and running again.

Don't forget there's new food specials and specials in the bar as well. Saturday night August 20th the drink special is a Dr Fong w/ collector mug for $15, that's right, for $15 you get the drink and you keep the mug! So come on out, have some pupus, a tropical libation or two, and enjoy the swingin' surf sounds of The Exotics.

We'll post FREE raffle photo later this week.

Mahalo,

D&C

This month we have Roger and the Wraybands bringing their smoldering surf sounds to the Chef on Saturday September 17th.


Since 1999, Roger & The Wraybands has been entertaining music fans in the Chicago area with their solid surf sounds. The four piece instrumental guitar band serves up a giant collection of surf music including hits from the classic early 60's surf bands like: The Ventures, Lively Ones and Bel-Airs to the scorching sounds of Dick Dale and the band's namesake Link Wray. Covering surf classics like: Pipeline, Baja, Miserlou and Walk Don't Run '64 to their surf-istic take on classic lounge hits like Henri Mancini's A Shot In The Dark and Sid Ramon's Music to Watch Girls Go By, Roger & The Wraybands take their audiences on a joy ride through time with wild music, as popularized in the movie Pulp Fiction. Just when fans enjoy a taste of some mellow surf tunes, such as from the 60's cult classic surf movie The Endless Summer or Midnight Cowboy; watch out! Because things heat right back up with Roger & The Wraybands' powerful renditions of tunes by modern surf legends Los Straitjackets, Laika & The Cosmonauts, Satan's Pilgrims and others.

Don't forget there's a new food and drink menu and happy hour specials in the bar as well. Saturday night the drink special is a Mai Tai w/ collector mug for $15, that's right, for $15 you get the drink and you keep the mug! So come on out, have some pupus, a tropical libation or two, and enjoy the smoldering surf sounds of Roger and the Wraybands.

FREE raffle photo up next week! So stay tuned...

Mahalo,

D&C

Hello

I am coming into town on November 6th and would love to meet up with some Chicago Ohana. I believe my employers have us staying in Shaumbourg- I know the spelling sucks. What do you think?
