The last of our double disc winners is Laura M. from Whiting, IN. Congrats! She's won our 2 adult CDs this month (though the kids are likely to dig 'em, too) by How Far To Austin & The Shams Band.
The Shams Band Update:
These genre jumping, blues funkin' guys are some serious fun. They're self labeled "Chicago's original rock folk group". Whatever you wanna call their style, these boys have style, and we wanna hear MORE of it.
You can check 'em out on UIC Radio today, 4-5pm. Thanks SLY Radio!
We'll have our own review of The Shams Band's super sweet CD, Champagne, up soon. If you weren't picked this week, we've got 2 more copies to give away in the future.
You can friend, follow and otherwise stalk these guys in all the usual socially approved ways. Check 'em out on FB, Twitter My Space, etc. to hear the latest on their scheduled shows. Check out their website to hear their original music and for a real treat, come on out the 12th or 13th, and see 'em live for free.
