Shoes is a
VARIETY band from Pekin, Illinois. It’s aprroximately SIXTEEN full and part-time members
specialize in live music entertainment for community events and private social
band started as the brain child of Dr. Eric Reinertson a local
a smaller group of musicians were assembled to “jam” once a month or so with
some classic rock tunes and eventually play for the office Christmas party.
Over the course of a couple of years several musicians joined the band
from various connections. Some have
come and gone and the mix now includes about two or more of everything; singers,
keyboards, trumpets, guitars, saxes, trombones, etc.
It is hard to say how many people actually are in the band as it keeps
growing and we have full and part time members.
All of the Loose Shoes members either work or go to school full time in the Pekin area. THREE of the members are local physicians, which occasionally gives rise to the name “the Doctors’ band”. This band has a strong rhythm section that is accented by a full brass combo and several exceptional vocalists. CLASSIC ROCK CoverS AND songs from the 1940’s to current hits are the predominant presentation material.
