Old Shoe
Old Shoe
Old Shoe is a five-piece Roots Rock n' Roll band based out of Chicago, Illinois. Made up of talented songwriters from across the country, hailing from as far away as Alaska, the band's compositions paint a diverse landscape of American life.

In the past two years, Old Shoe has been quite busy: they solidified their current strong lineup with keyboardist /mandolinist / vocalist Joe Day and drummer Greg Fundis, rounded the Midwest festival circuit at high-profile events like Summer Camp, Wakarusa, Harvest Festival and Phases of the Moon, opened for Leftover Salmon, Keller Williams and Grammy-award winning Bruce Hornsby, and produced their own festival—Shoe Fest—which will celebrate its fifth consecutive year in September, 2015.

The band's new independently released album Family is not merely another notch in the belt for Old Shoe: it is a poignant culmination of their growth and progress since their last release in 2011. The 13 original songsshowcases the band’s diverse influences, ranging from bluegrass to prog-rock to jazz, with it all settling into a familiar comfort zone akin to one’s favorite “old shoe.” The album reaches new heights from previous releases with a star-studded guest roster featuring musicians from the Henhouse Prowlers, The Low Down Brass Band and Chicago’s production of The Jungle Book. WXRT 93.1FM Chicago radio host, Richard Milne, calls it "...a big time album."
