If It's Thursday, "It's Thursday" in Antioch, Illinois

Just got back from Antioch where we attended our first "It's Thursday" concert featuring one of our favorite bands called R. Gang.  If you love soul/Motown music from the 60s, 70s and 80s, this is a band to check out.  We see then fairly regularly at Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake.

They even have choreography to the songs, especially the Motown ones that just adds to the show.  Musically and vocally, they have it down.  The only negative thing I have to say about  them is that they did several extended jams in the hour and a half which could have been better served by doing more songs.  But, I have to admit, I am no fan of jams.  (I love the album songs by the Grateful Dead but hated the one live show I saw them play.  Hey, play the song and then get on with another one.)

Where else you going to get to hear a band for free on a Thursday evening.  And, we had just perfect weather for an outdoor concert after three days of blistering heat and high winds.

We were even able to get some boating in before the concert.
