11.08.2013: Shark City, Battle Mania, The Cubby Bear and More!

Dearest SoulMates... our humble apologies.

We've neglected our blog, leaving you hanging without a Seven Soul news fix. But, please don't fault us too hard... we've been working far too hard for your musical pleasure!

Last summer, Pete (drummer) got an opportunity to move to his most favorite city on the planet... Austin, TX. We were sad to bid him adieu in September, but we hardly skipped a beat finding a replacement. Our new drummer, Tim McCarthy, is quite a formidable force of drumming nature!

In August, we played Shark City and got
some amazing pictures. We also entered the Battle Mania fray and have, thus far, proven successful... we're in the Finals (Nov. 30)! Want to see us win? Then, get your tickets now!

The Seven Soul buzz kept buzzing through September and October, landing us an opening slot at The Cubby Bear! We played in the Shoeshine Boy Productions Halloween Extravaganza, sharing a stage with Todd Hembrook & The Hemispheres, Jimi Falls, and GirlBand. In the end, it just doesn't get better than costumes and the crowd chanting, "One more song! One more song!" Well, unless you count the next night, when we played another Halloween party at H.B. Jones (Elmhurst) and got more chanting for an encore. Wow, guys... we're seriously humbled!

BUT, the weekend wasn't over yet. Nope, we headed into the recording studio to lay down some new tracks. Our latest recordings represent that Seven Soul sound and harmonies that we bring to you every gig, starting with "Hazy Shade of Winter." Throughout November, we'll trickle a new track out each week. So, keep an eye and ear on this site or our Facebook page (Hint: we post on Tuesday!).
And finally, we are booked solid (considering we're a bunch of folks with day jobs) through the end of 2013. You'll find us in Hanover Park, Mount Prospect, Chicago Ridge, Glendale Heights, Niles, and back in the city proper limits of Chicago.
Check our calendar. Come party with us. Say hello. Take pictures. Tag us. Maybe your picture will end up getting a special shout out!

See you soon!
