Digging through our video library we came across a video we did for Block 5 a couple years ago that featured Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons. Block 5 is coming up in a couple of weeks, so you should be sure to check it out (August 25th). This video will hopefully get you in the mood for this festival, they close off the 500 block of E. State St in Rockford IL, which happens to be the block Vixen is located on. The restaurants set up patios on the sidewalk so you can enjoy their delicious cuisine accompanied by the always-great music brought in. Restaurants you can be sure to check out include: The Irish Rose, Abreo, Social, Delia Italia, Bamboo, and you can stop in and get some drinks from the office or do a little shopping at Plush & Minglewood. This years music guests will be Mana Kintorso, Fresh Hot Fritters, and Honey Island Swamp Band. $5 at the gate August 25th, starts @ 6.
For those of you who are not familiar with Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons they are an americana folk rock band who are signed with Black Seal Music a subsidiary of RCA Records. They have many accomplishments under their belt. Take a look at the Block 5 video and visit the bands website for more info.
