Sunshine Boys
Sunshine Boys
The recently launched Sunshine Boys are a Chicago-based trio of veteran recording and touring artists who’ve served in some of the most revered bands in indie rock, dating back to when the term ‘indie rock’ represented a work ethic, rather than a genre. Featuring Freda Love Smith (Blake Babies, Antenna, Mysteries of Life) on drums, Jacqueline Schimmel (Big Hello, Justin Roberts) on bass, and Dag Juhlin (Poi Dog Pondering, The Slugs) on guitar, Sunshine Boys offer a propulsive, melodic take on pop rock that runs the range from sparkling to dark, often within the same number.
