Open Mike begins at 9 pm, No cover

Tuesday, December 27 – 9 pm
The Mudflapps: www.myspace.com/themudflapps
No Cover, Bluegrass / Americana
The Mudflapps: A Drinking band with a music problem. And they mean it, with songs about love, whiskey, jail, family problems and more, you’ll fall in love with the Mudflapps the moment you hear them.
A Chicago based band that plays original authentic acoustic music. This five (5) piece band plays often times totally acoustic, as in no P.A.
Reminiscent of sitting around the campfire in the olde tymes, their songs weave a tail of woes, women, whiskey, wild living in the western world and what do after a night at the bar. Acoustic bass, guitars, dobro, & mandolin fit nicely into any corner in any restaurant or bar in America, and worth a listen from the big city theaters to small town pubs.

Post race food can be ordered until the wee small hours of the morning. Music for this year’s recession buster celebration in the Heartland Café
will be the grooving sounds of Soutree.

She has won several singing competions and is the primary writer for Soultree Chicago’s original music. Her Influences include but are not limited to: Whitney Houston, Jill Scott and Chaka Kahn. Myron is a seasoned soul singing tenor. He plays lead Keyboard and serves as the music director and producer for Soultree Chicago. What makes up our unique sound is the talented musicians. On the Bass is Al, he specializes in Soul, Jazz, Blues and Funk. On the Guitar is TC, who is trained in Classical Jazz, Soul, Rock, and Blues. On the Drums is Eddie “aka” George Lopas. Eddie keeps the energy flowing and can hold down any genre on the drums. And in The Red Line Tap we have a Railway Records Showcase, featuring some of Chicago’s finest Americana and roots acts that this city has to offer. Opening the night will be Micki Croisant, your favorite Red Line Tap bartendress and open mic hostess, and Ian Broeker, Red Line Tap sound person extraordinaire, and founder of the roots band the Grizzly Sweets. Bringing you into 2012 will be Bad Raccoon, the duo of Justin Gillam and James Weigel, members of the Mudflapps and Outlaw Family Band.

Railway Records: http://www.railwayrecords.com/
Railway Records is an entirely independent record label based out of Chicago, IL. Born on Chicago’s north side, Railway is dedicated to releasing the best in Americana, roots, folk, alternative country, and rock. The goal of Railway is really two-part. First, we work to discover, develop, and promote exceptional new artists in both traditional and non-traditional ways. One way that we do this is by providing booking and
management services for our artists. Next, we reach out to find the listeners who are being under-served by the current state of the record industry. It is our goal to bring these two groups together.

Micki Croisant: http://www.myspace.com/thegoodnameband
Micki Croisant & The Good Name Band is an acoustic trio born in the heart of Rogers Park in Chicago. The band is known for Micki’s timeless vocals, showcased by her original songs. Prior to The Good Name Band, Keith DaProza (drums) and Davide Pezzini (bass) had experience as a rhythm section, having collaborated on several national tours. When they met up with Micki for the first time, it was like they had been playing together for years… like meeting old friends for the very first time.

Ian Broeker: http://www.railwayrecords.com/grizzly-sweets.htm
The Grizzly Sweets formed in 2006 with singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist Ian Broeker along with drummer Mike Edwards. Lead guitarist Dan Ornduff joined a year later, and bassist Nick Goodman completed the
current four piece in early 2011. Drawing inspiration from singer songwriters such as Neil Young and Will Oldham, Ian began writing and performing his songs as a solo artist in 2000. With each addition, The
Grizzly Sweets were able to evolve their sound, moving comfortably from soft, acoustic folk to hard driving, Neil Young and Crazy Horse inspired rock and roll.

Bad Racoon: http://www.railwayrecords.com/bad-raccoon.htm
Bad Raccoon is a Chicago folk-rock duo consisting of James Weigel and Justin Gillam. Taking a raw, no-frills approach, the music of Bad Raccoon is a meld of blues, rock, folk, and country interwoven with lyrics focused on the condition of human existence. Free champagne toast at midnight, and 3.00 Goose
Island Drafts – 312 and Honkers Ale in the Heartland Café and 312 and Mild Winter in the Red Line Tap. Many, many thanks to our friends at Goose Island
