Katie Belle & The Belle Rangers / Steve Bores Trio
October 14 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm$5
When the moon is full and the hour is late, carnival sounds of Katie Belle and the Belle Rangers can be heard flowing down the Illinois and Fox rivers. The siren songs may draw you near the glow of a riverfront window. Come inside, you will find them with their friends and relations, young and old, singing along to music that sounds like it’s been around for a century, but is also brand new. At times, the close harmonies and sweet melodies will float around you like a prairie dervish. Next, they’ll have you stomping your feet to a sound that’s equal parts outlaw country and heavy metal. Maybe you’ll stay long enough to get drawn into the tales; little short stories with many layers of meaning and a touch of madness.
Whether they are in a massive auditorium or at a living room rehearsal, Katie Belle and the Belle Rangers, fill the room with the sound that is a cross-pollination of all American roots music, and the joy and friendship of a close-knit band.
