They play in Chicago on practically a daily basis.  Jon is an acquaintance of 
mine and I am friends with several of the band members.  That said, it's a 
bit odd that I don't like them more.  Make no mistake, it's The Pogues meets 
Hank Williams and they all go out drinking -- it's a heck of a night out, 
especially if you like beer.  Musically though, I call it country swing 
without the swing.  It's very much white male music, mandolin songs with a 
military beat.  A great night out but don't bother with the records.
