The Original Legends of Chicago Garage Band Music

New Colony Six, Ronnie Rice, Jimmy Sohns & Shadows of Knight
and Special Guest Walt Kemp!

This is where it all started … the late 1960’s, Chicago was bursting at the seams, as a new rock revolution was taking place all over Chicagoland. Local bands were suddenly making waves all cross the Midwest. One band opened the door to the world of the great music coming out of Chicago and they became the undisputed leader of Chicago’s Rock Revolution, The New Colony Six and right on their heels where the Shadows of Knight.  Both scoring national hits with “I Confess” and “Gloria”!

Price increases August 23.
New Colony Six is comprised with founding member and lead singer Ray Graffia along with a quintet of bandmates who have been together for over 4 decades. 

Also starring and opening the show, will be former New Colony Six lead singer and song writer, Ronnie Rice! When Ronnie starts singing and playing, the party begins, so if you have a favorite song, just yell it out; Ronnie knows them all!  If you want to sing along, sing it LOUD and just remember that when Ronnie starts singing and playing, it’s time to party!  Shift into high gear, with Ronnie the excitement for the night is about to begin.  Tune up your doo-wah-diddies and bop-shoo-bops and get ready to shake, rattle and roll with "Mr. Sing-Along" himself—Ronnie Rice!

Jimy Sohns and the Shadows of Knight keep the party rolling with his international hit “Gloria” that catapulted the band to stardom!! Expect to hear some of the bands greatest tunes, including tunes that racked up a total of 3 top 30 singles that also include “Shake,” and “Oh Yeah”. 

After a short intermission New Colony Six, Chicago’s Original hometown band takes the stage for a night to remember! Tunes we haven’t heard in decades along with some of their biggest sellers.

Ronnie Rice will join on stage along with another founding member of New Colony Six, Walt Kemp to sing a few of the songs that have left many memories for many of their fans.

Some of the greatest music ever to come out of Chicago Garage Band Era came from New Colony Six, Ronnie Rice, Walt Kemp and Jimy Sohns and we are so proud to have them join us for this special show.

Now 5 decades later these great musicians continue to amaze and dazzle their fans of all ages throughout the Midwest. Get your tickets today because this is one show you won’t want to miss.
