Shure is right outside Chicago, and so we were out in force for the second showcase of regional finalists in the SM58® Give It Voice Tour. All three bands were from the City of Chicago, each representing a very different genre from each other. Opening the show, St. Bagu was a hip-hop act with two MCs fronting a live band. Rivals of the Peacemaker, an eight-member alt-country act, followed. Closing the night was Samantha, a power rock/punk trio. Taking the judges vote by one point, was St. Bagu, who now move on to the next round of voting.
Cory Lorentz is the Artist Relations Manager at Shure. He enjoys weekends, tacos and has a soft spot for the kind of lite rock music you’d hear in a dentist’s office.
