City Winery

It’s hard to find a great intimate venue in downtown Chicago that can properly present the soft harmonies and blend of the Ides vocals and the power of the full eight-piece horn band that we are.

The City Winery is just that place, and The Ides are looking forward to playing at the City Winery on Thursday, May 3rd, 2018.  Please join us and enjoy this great venue!

Cornerstones of Rock!

It seems that people who grew up with the music of the 60’s and 70’s can’t get enough of the Cornerstones of Rock concerts being hosted by the Ides of March, and featuring original members of the Shadows of Knight, the New Colony Six, The Cryan Shames, the Buckinghams, and of course, The Ides.

The live version of the highly successful PBS Sound Stage program “Cornerstones of Rock- American Garage” played to several sold-out venues in 2017, and is lining up to play many more this year, starting on April 29th, at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL.  Later, this summer will bring the Cornerstones show to the famed Milwaukee Summer Fest, on June 28th.

It’s all about the songs! This show faithfully reproduces the songs made famous nationally by these Midwest “garage band” start-up groups, and rocks with the energy that makes audiences feel as young as their fondest memories of this great period of popular music. Come on out and enjoy!

We will be posting a more in-depth article on the “Cornerstones” in the near future.

The Ides Really Rocked The Boat This Time!

For the second year in a row, The Ides of March were honored to be invited to play on the mighty Moody Blues Cruise to the Caribbean. This year’s cruise featured many fine artists such as the Zombies, Alan Parsons, Ambrosia, The Orchestra, Richie Furay, Jefferson Starship and many more, and, of course, the new Hall of Fame inductees, The Moody Blues.

This is an awesome sea cruise, with great music and wonderful people, including our incredible hosts, the Moody Blues, the fine crew that has to pull off miracles to handle the intense schedule of the many bands and venues on the ship, and the cruisers, the music lovers who come to enjoy the music!

Playing to an overflowing crowd in the club venue, and a full house in the main theater, the Ides were welcomed back with great enthusiasm, and really rocked the boat, as shared in the pictures below. The Ides met many new and old friends at the merchandise signing after the theater concert, and we really hope to do it, again, in the future!
