Chasing Shade / Bio

After doing a solar powered tour across Iowa via bicycles, Chasing Shade was recently likened to being the hardest working band in show business. - Iowa City Press Citizen, July 26th, 2012

Thus, it should be no surprise that this indie-beach-blues duo based out of Iowa City, IA has shared the stage with some of the top acts in the country including Bon Jovi, Pepper, G.Love & Special Sauce, Rusted Root, Lissie, and Mason Jennings.

Chasing Shade is also committed to giving back to their community and promoting sustainability. Chasing Shade has contributed to and performed at fundraisers benefiting Amnesty International, Habitat for Humanity, and Engineers for a Sustainable World. In addition, Chasing Shade designed and implemented the first recycling and composting program at Camp Euforia, a local music festival of ~2000 attendees.

Festivals Performed at:
*Summer Camp Music Festival with guest appearance by Chuck Garvey of Moe.
*Chicago Blues and Bluegrass Festival 2010 & 2011
