Normally, we try to keep things here at the Humphrey House blog topical to our home renovation, but I couldn't resist sharing some news...
The rock band I play with will be performing at the House of Blues in Chicago this Friday evening!
It's kind of funny, because every other year or so, around St Patrick's Day, the Frank Tribes band manages to get a slot opening for a touring Irish band in Chicago's House of Blues. A few years ago, it was Gaelic Storm, this time we're opening the night for the Young Dubliners. This is despite the fact that we are a rock band (a la Rolling Stones, Beatles, Neil Diamond) with nary a hint of Irish music.
Maybe its something in the name "Frank Tribes" that sounds folksy. Or maybe it's because we'll be joined on stage by Rob Bochnik, the lead guitarist that plays with the Irish band, the Frames (whose lead singer Glen Hansard just won an Oscar for co-writing best song in the movie Once).
Best of all: There are free tickets.
