Snowy Saturday Night Live: Miles Over Mountains Returns To The Uptowner

Bluegrass/folk/Americana band Miles Over Mountains scored a hit in Charleston when they first visited in March, so Macs’ Uptowner is having them back for a second go-round tonight.

Show starts at 9:30 p.m. Cover is $3. You must be 21 or over to enter.

The band is: Sean Shiel – Vocals / Mandolin; AJ Knaack – Vocals / Banjo; Caleb Peters – Vocals / Acoustic Guitar; Steve Hansen – Vocals / Upright Bass.

The band, from McHenry, Ill. have spent a lot of time on the road. From their web site:

In just their first year as a band, Miles Over Mountains continue to turn heads across the Midwest. In 2014 they’ve performed almost a hundred shows at bars, clubs and festivals. Besides playing notable Chicago venues such as Cubby Bear, Martyr’s, Tonic Room and others, the band also held a weekly residency show at the Abbey Pub from May until October carrying on the longstanding local tradition of Bluegrass Tuesdays in the city. The 2014 festival season saw M.O.M. performing at such fests as Shoe Fest, Down On The Farm, Blottopia, Summer Stomp and more, and sharing the bill with The Wood Brothers, Split Lip Rayfield, Ben Miller Band and a host of national and regional acts.

Here’s a video of their song “Make It Easy” to give you a taste of their sound.
