Trick Shooter Social Club is a full-on, lean-in, roots-rock band from Chicago that celebrates country, rock, pop, punk and blues with original electric rock music. Our influences include Cash, Kiss, Social Distortion, Steve Earle, Tom Petty and early Wilco. We've released two albums and have finished our third (American Experiment) at Chicago Recording Studio with Grammy award winning engineer producer Jon Zacks. We've played with several national touring acts including Peggy Young and the Survivors (featuring Spooner Oldham) and recent shows in LA and NY. We are proud to be regulars at the House of Blues, Metro and Lincoln Hall, and regular guests on WGN. In 2019 we'll support our new album with a series of regional tours – bringing the music we truly believe in to folks everywhere.

Music

American Experiment

Trickshooter Social Club

Our album tries to capture the blunt force beauty and casual tragedy of now - the grace, the shame, the fragility and the strength of the American Experiment we are living in 2019. It is a blend of raw blues rock with hits of country, classic rock and Americana. Tragic and hopeful. New and familiar. American Experiment endeavors to contribute to the conversation.

Trickshooter Social Club brings their critically acclaimed new album, American Experiment, to life with an unapologetic look at the beauty, volatility, possibility, and absurdity of the American Experiment we are all living. Equal parts rock concert and old-fashioned hootenanny, this is a night of storytelling through roots-rock, alt. country and dirty blues – an unironic attempt to get at something like truth – to build an evening of genuine community through words, music.
