Hi gang!

Due to some personal and family health concerns, Shady Drive/Slim ‘N Shady/In Step will be taking a short break from performing. The current lockdown and ban on entertainment seemed like an appropriate time for us to do so.

Stay well. We will see you all on the other side of this.

Hi gang,

Currently, all of our live shows are canceled until bars and restaurants open again. We hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. Many venues are staying open for carry out and delivery. They need our support to stay afloat until this crisis passes and we can get back to some semblance of normalcy.

Restaurants with outdoor seating opened on May 15, bars and indoor restaurants may open on May 21, provided they meet the social distancing guidelines. However, there was some language about dancing and entertainment areas remaining closed for the time being. We’re still not optimistic for the month of May. We’ll continue to post on Sunday to keep in touch and keep you all informed.

In the meantime, grab some take out from your favorite venue occasionally. Two of our favorites are:

The Fairview Tavern – 21867 Lorain Rd., Fairview Park – (440) 799-4200, carry out, delivery

The Oriole Cafe – 294 N. Rocky River Dr., Berea – (440) 243-8809, carry out, delivery

As always, you can pick up a copy of Shady Drive’s CD, “Darker Shade Of Blue” at all of our live shows (when they resume) and on Amazon, CDBaby or iTunes! You can hear us often, along with other blues artists on WCSB-FM Mondays at 9pm and on BluesMusicFan.com!

Stay well, stay home and help each other however you are able. Thank you.

We’ll talk soon…

They need our support to stay afloat until this crisis passes and we can get back to some semblance of normalcy.

This past Thursday, Governor DeWine announced that restaurants with outdoor seating are permitted to open on May 15, bars and indoor restaurants on May 21, provided they meet the social distancing guidelines. However, there was some language about dancing and entertainment areas remaining closed for the time being, so we’re still not optimistic for the month of May.

We’ll provide the PA and a short host set, the rest is up to you! Come join us and show off your acoustic/vocal chops or just hang out and enjoy the music, great food and frosty cold drinks!

Friday: Shady Drive will join up with Chris Hanna on keys and the fabulous North Coast Horns to appear at Legends Sports Bar and Grill (8735 Day Drive, Parma, 8pm)! Great food, service, plenty of parking, house sound and lights and a huge dance floor all make Legends one of Cleveland’s top live music venues, so make plans now to join us!

Saturday:  Shady Drive heads back to The Fairview Tavern (21867 Lorain Rd., Fairview Park, 9pm). The food there is second to none (try the $10 steak special!), the drinks are cold and the service is top notch! We’ll be playing your favorite blues and rock tunes all evening, so GET THERE and let’s party!
