Festival Of The Vine | Toasting The Festival Farewell

Sunday sees the closing of Geneva’s Festival Of The Vine, but there’s still a lot more to enjoy. Here’s a rundown for the day.

Music on Center Stage

12:00 – 2:00 pm: Jim Duncan and Tim Logsdon

Jim Duncan began his love of music in high school as a member of the perennial national powerhouse jazz band from MacArthur High School in Decatur. His jazz roots helped him make a quick transition to guitar and vocals later in life. Jim has been playing music around Chicago since 2009 with bands “The Leftovers” and “Joey Sunset Project.”

Tim Logsdon is a veteran of the Northwest Illinois music scene with credit on several full-length releases. His original music group “The Couch Coins” has been a staple from the Quad-cities to the western suburbs for years. His bluesy style and double picking are a product of growth from his 70s & 80s rock roots. There is always a lot of fun to be had when these two dynamic performers unite as they are an extremely formidable duo playing country, rock, and blues.

2:30 – 4:00 pm: The Shades

The Shades are a Chicago area Rock band composed of four veteran musicians with decades of experience and a melting pot of musical backgrounds. Business professionals by day, these four members formed this group with only one thing in mind: To Make Great Music to be shared with a Great Audience.

Apart from having a song list that covers decades of music and musical styles, The Shades take great pride in taking on popular songs that are not necessarily covered by other bands.
