They have appeared on NBC, WGN, Fox, and ESPN. British Export features vintage suits and instruments reminiscent of the Beatles performances of the 60’s including an exciting Sgt. Pepper set. All songs are performed duplicating the sound of the original recordings of The Fab 4. Help us celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the British Invasion!

Jimy Rogers and THE MAUDS
: http://www.themauds.com are BACK ! ... Yes, the legendary Midwest R&B / SOUL Group has re-united under the leadership of founder, JIMY ROGERS. Mauds music? It's timeless, soulful and exciting. Baby-Boomers may remember their hits "HOLD ON" or "SOUL DRIPPIN' " from the late 1960's. These are still on the band's playlist. However the Mauds are no nostalgia act. The timeless resurgent R&B sound has assured the eight piece band an even younger and bigger market for the new millennium.

The Roscoe Village Neighbors is the beneficiary of Retro on Roscoe. This non-profit organization promotes the Village of Roscoe as a friendly place for Chicagoans to live and for local businesses to flourish. It provides an open forum for discussions on how to improve the community and seeks to continually improve safety for the people who live and work in Roscoe Village. This year, money would be used for the Audobon School, also Felger Park on Belmont and Damon would benefit from the beautification project. Sat & Sun: 12N-10p A $5(??) donation is requested at the door, and children under 12 and senior citizens are free. One of Chicago's hottest areas is the home of this flashback weekend of fun. Retro on Roscoe, now in its 10th season, will feature an antique car and motorcycle show, and plenty of '70s, '80s and '90s music to entertain the crowd of over 35,000 people.
Antique and craft vendors, ethnic foods and games, fill the venue and liven up this tree-lined street for an enjoyable, two-day festival that brings back great memories while providing an exciting venue for the entire family. The Family Area is one of the best in the City and offers games, crafts, entertainment and lots more. This weekend will provide an incredible experience filled with exciting opportunities for all in attendance. Do not miss Retro on Roscoe!
