06.06.2014: With a Little Help from My Friends

"And, now for something completely different..."


You've heard it from Monty Python, and you've heard it many times from the Seven Soul stage. But when we say it this time, we really mean it. Our lineup looked very different, so (of course) our sound was equally just as different last Friday at Goose Island in Wrigleyville. However, one thing didn't change... that's right, the kick-ass ENERGY emanating from the ladies up front!

Until we find just the right voices for Seven Soul, two incredible singers/friends joined us for a great night of music! First, our good friend Frances Giagkou from Rock Recycler filled the stage with some Pat Benatar and Jefferson Airplane tunes. But what really brought the house down was her rendition of "What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes. You know you're doing something right when the singer for the next band is seconds away from jumping on stage and crooning along with you. Nicely done, Frances!

Second, we had another friend, Julie Larson, jump up and round out our sound with some smooth harmonies. Then, she showed us what she can do with a little Janis Joplin ditty called "Me and Bobby McGee." You might have heard of it? ;-)

Our sincerest gratitude goes out to these lovely ladies for joining us and delivering a great show! The excitement and enthusiasm from the crowd reaffirms that we accomplished our mission—to deliver excellent music and a performance that keeps the crowd wanting even more Seven Soul!

Oh, but don't you worry your pretty heads... We're gearing up to keep bringing you our best at each and every show. Who will join us next? Just watch our calendar for announcements about all of the talented vocalists joining us next time for a unique musical experience you won't want to miss!

    The show was great. The chemistry was so evident and it was like you all had been together for years. So much energy and fun up on stage, radiated to the crowd who were dancing, smiling, and having a great time. Great job Frankie, Julie, and the rest of the band. I really enjoyed this lineup very much! You guys have something unique and special, keep on keepin' on!! Love you guys!! :)
