Friday January 27th would be a fine night to check out Casey’s culinary offerings while taking in the musical stylings of Richie Shep in the lounge area afterwards. Like Casey’s multi-faceted menu, Shep will serve up a wide variety of tasteful tunes for patrons of all ages and musical tastes. In the mood for “Old Blue Eyes?” Just ask the affable Shep and he will crank out a nice rendition from Frank Sinatra’s extensive catalog. Or if U2 is more for you, be sure and head up to the microphone with your request.
In addition to these well-known songs, Richie Shep is sure to break out a few one-hit wonders while handing out scratch off lottery tickets to the first person to recognize the artist. So brush up on your Five Stairsteps and Edison Lighthouse and you might even win a few bucks with the correct answer.
Shep might need to stock up on more scratch offs tickets in the coming months, as 2012 could very well be his break out year. In the past few weeks Shep has played everywhere from Two Chefs in Bensenville to the Mad Tapper in Northlake. He has a return engagement at Two Chefs on February 11th and promises to play a full slate of love songs in honor of Valentine’s Day weekend.
But Valentine’s Day is still a few weeks away, and Shep is on tap this Friday night Casey’s in Lombard where there is no cover charge and half-price appetizers at the bar until 7pm. Get there early to nosh and stick around for Shep’s show beginning at 7:30 pm. Casey’s is located at 415 E. North Avenue in Lombard. Call 630-932-4777 or visit the website for more details.
