New Human Alert... Who's Bigger? Update from The Shams Band

Who's bigger, Mr. Biggins or Mr. Biggins baby?   Congrats to Donnie--frontman for Chi-Town's own Shams Band and his wife, Anna, on the birth of their daughter.  The Shams Band have been folk favs of ours for years.    

I still remember when our first kid was born and my husband and I looked at each other one of those early days and said, "Woa, we're somebody's PARENTS."   

Once you guys get over the sleep can check out ChiIL Mama for all our happenin' family friendly entertainment, events, original interviews, show shots, live footage, reviews and loads of great give aways.   We know parents and kids rock and just 'cause you create a life, that doesn't mean you can't still have a life.   

So, all of you with rock tots, punk kin, little folk, and banger babies.....check in with ChiIL Mama like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often.   You'll be glad you did.

Best news about the new birth...The Shams Band will be playing a bunch more Chicago gigs in the near future.

Here's the latest right from the band:
