The Lawrence Peters Outfit

21+ | 7pm Doors, 8pm Show
with Nikki Morgan
The Lawrence Peters Outfit play un-ruined country music, a term Lawrence coined to describe the band’s original, deep-rooted, honky tonk sound. They are 2019 and 2018 Ameripolitan Award nominees, in the Best Honky Tonk Group category, two time winners of the “Best Country And Western Entertainer” (Chicago Music Awards), and “Best Country Band” in The Chicago Reader’s “Best Of 2022” poll. Widely known for his lead vocal on "The Old Black Hen", for the watershed Songs: Ohia- Magnolia Electric Company album, here Peters leads the "Outfit" through his own finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, John Huber on rhythm guitar, and Josh Piet on upright bass.
