Empty Can Band to return to Roundhouse stage

Saddle up cowgirls and cowboys, it’s time for the Empty Can Band to ride again at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 10, at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora.

This will be the boys’ first official gig since March 14, 2020, and boy-howdy are they ready to go, a news release stated.

Celebrating 21 years of rock ’n’ roll in Aurora and the Fox Valley, the Empty Cans are able to play one more round-up, they announced.  Band members are Dave Glynn on guitar and yodeling, Richie Van Ham on harmonica and spurs, Johnny Mack Guitar on, you-guessed-it, lead guitar, Todd Moffett on drums and lullabies, and Chevy on knee replacement and bass.

“No wheel chairs or walkers yet, we’re ready to rock ’n’ roll; COVID didn’t kill us neither,” boasts Sheriff Davy. “You don’t want to come down and rock ’n’ roll with the rest of us? – go all Lone Ranger – then suit yourself. The rest of us will be kickin’ up some dust.”

There is no cover charge, and the gig is planned to be outside in the courtyard. The Roundhouse is at 205 N. Broadway (Route 25).
