DO NOT MISS the next Windy City Soul Club night, coming to you this Friday, May 28 at Empty Bottle.  The boys have the month of June off (don’t worry, plenty more to come), so you’ll be out of luck until July…

The Crombies Are Coming

Monday, May 17th, 2010


Lord Mike, where have you gone? It has been over a year since the legendary last Lord Mike & The Dirty Calypsonians show at Metro. And people worldwide have inquired whether the former Deal’s Gone Bad singer – and world’s dirtiest Calypsonian – would ever sing again. Some were generally concerned for his mental state…but most wanted to gain back a sense of hope – what new band could fill the void and guarantee a night of drink and general stupor? Over the past few months, “Lord” Mike has been secretly plotting his new act – with former members of the Calypsonians – and they call themselves THE CROMBIES! Are you missing that live 2 Tone sound? Have no fear – the dance craze sound has returned to Chicago! And catch their debut show opening for Mustard Plug at the Beat Kitchen on July 10th! A MUST SEE SHOW!!

The CROMBIES are also gearing up for their debut 7″ single on Jump Up! this fall!!

Good times last Friday with WCSC… lots of feet on the floor and talc in the air. That’s just the way we like it. Jordan brought his camera, so head over to the Gallery and see if you can find yourself!

Windy City Soul Club returns to the Empty Bottle on May 28.
