IDES SHOWS POSTPONED

With our home State of Illinois in “Stay Home” mode, and many others shutting down public gatherings, many of the Ides’ current concert dates have been postponed. Some have already been relisted with later dates, some have yet to be rescheduled. Please check the list carefully for the revised dates. We will update the listing as soon as we confirm new dates.

While we want to be out there playing for you, we all must take seriously the precautions directed to stop the spread of COVID-19. Let’s all stay safe to play another day!

Cornerstones of Rock Concert- Another Sell-out Crowd!

It was another great night of memorable music by the original artists who recorded the hits back in the day!  

The Ides of March, The Buckinghams, the Cryan Shames, The New Colony Six, Jimy Sohns of the Shadows of Knight and Ted Alliota of Alliota, Haynes and Jeremiah filled the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL, and played those national hit songs they made famous in the late ‘60’s and 70’s, reawakening so many memories of simpler, happier days.

Everyone came ready to dance and sing along as the bands did their thing. This night, host Ron Onesti asked about forgotten songs, and the bands each responded with some of the “almost-hit” they had, that still are some of their favorites.  

The Cornerstones of Rock show has received great reviews from fans and promoters wherever is has been preformed, and there’s too much fun to be had to stop any time, soon!
