We perform as a duet, and also with full band, depending on the needs/requirements of the venue.
Our music is clean and suitable for all age group and our mission is to get toes tapping. A fun, roots-rock-pop-blues band based in the north suburbs of Chicago, Sheryl and Tom have been performing for the public since 1998. Our set list includes a generous amount of rock, blues, ballads and pop oldies, along with original music, which is filled with harmony and inspired by everyday living in the Chicagoland area.
As the Sheryl and Tom Duet and Friends, our “Friends” are talented multi-instrumentalist dedicated to projecting a quality performance with a clean fun image.
We will perform for over 70,000 people in the Illinois/Wisconsin area in 2011. We provide quality entertainment and have a reputation built on referrals.
In 2011 we can be found at Chicago venues like O'Hare and Midway International Airports, The Chicago Rock “n” Roll Half Marathon, The Elbo Room, Abbey Pub, and the touring Scott Alan Showcase.
In the suburbs, we will open the stage for national country artist Darryl Worley at the Watseka Theatre, debut at The St. Charles Fine Art Show stage at Cord on Blues, return to C.J. Arthur's Wilmette, and perform for our 8th year at the Wilmette Arts Guild Festival of Fine Arts. We will perform in Wisconsin at The Racine County Fair, Food Folks & Spokes races in Kenosha, Lake Shore Weekend For Kids benefit for Children's Hospital.
Other meaningful work includes: Supersibs, Aid to Animals of Northern Illinois, Red Door Animal Shelter, National Alliance on Mental Health, Kenosha YMCA, American Cancer Society, Chicago Bears Care, and care homes, benefits and fundraiser events.
Last year we had live radio appearances on Open Road Radio with Gina Woods on June 5, 2010, and Remembering Kenosha with Lou Rugani over WLIP radio AM 1050 on July 23, 2010. We also performed live on the air on The Scott Alan Show over WJJG radio 1530 AM in Elmhurst, IL on November 26, 2010, where the request for an encore of How Much Beer was filled!
