Began in Carbondale and molded in Chicago, the hard driving, pop-rock, soul-funk band Mathien comes back to town on the opening weekend for Donnie’s Homespun nightclub in the Vinegar Hill Mall. With a grand stage and sound system, the large space begins anew as a venue on Friday with The Pimps and The Timmys, then completes the debut with Mathien and Hot Shot Sugar Force, Saturday. Led by the forceful and dynamic vision of Chris Mathien (guitar, lead vocals), duly accompanied by Peter Wilkins (keyboard, vocals), Mike Schiff (bass, vocals) and Omar Jahwar (drums), and ably aided by The Midwest Music Group as record label and management company, Mathien recently released a new record The Night I was an Alpha Male. On the heels of the successful Hello Again, the prolific group plays a mean live show and keeps busy at it all over the Midwest. Congrats on their Springfield return and to Donnie’s as our latest venue for live music.
