Great Moments in Vinyl plays tribute to The Rolling Stones
Saturday, August 5, 2017 • Wire, Berwyn, IL
It was the era of both The Summer of Love and The Vietnam War. It was the era that gave us Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Richard Nixon. It was the end of the Sixties. And as the wave of music from the British Invasion evolved into something less idealistic and darker, The Rolling Stones found themselves revitalized with a fresh burst of creativity that began with the single “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” and continued through four successive albums that are considered the best that they—or any other band—have ever released.
Great Moments in Vinyl celebrates The Rolling Stones at the peak of their powers by performing Let It Bleed and Exile on Main St. in their entirety.

Great Moments in Vinyl plays tribute to The Allman Brothers Band
Friday, August 18, 2017 • Martyrs', Chicago, IL
The Allman Brothers Band made a name for themselves with their live shows powered by the fiery slide guitar of Duane Allman and the sweetly singing leads of Dickey Betts. For our next tribute, we'll showcase the band's phenomenal two-record set, At Fillmore East, by pairing local guitarist-to-watch, Bill Grady, with Chicago veteran Richard Pettengill for some six-string rock and blues fireworks, aided by keyboardist Dan Ingenthron, drummer Benji Shefler, and GMiV founder William Lindsey Cochran on bass. Come for the music and enjoy the stories about the Allmans and the album that made them stars.
