They hail from Schaumburg, IL and in this short amount of time accomplished some incredible musical feats. In the summer of 2003 they completed a 5 song EP which was met with critical acclaim from industry leaders and fans alike. They immediately entered the studio in early 2004 to start production of their debut CD entitled “Pepper Rd.” In April 2005 they became the 95.1 WIIL Rock Bandemonium Contest winners, this was an 8 week contest amongst 9 local bands all vying to win the title and $10,000.00 in cash, studio time and equipment. From there they were invited to open for national acts Silvertide and Dark New Day in two of Chicago’s premier venues, Durty Nellies and the Metro respectively. Each show was written up with favorable reviews of Sleeping Shelby.
The stakes were raised even higher in November 2005 with being selected to open for Bon Jovi at Chicago’s United Center in front of 19,000 fans November 4th 2005. Local radio station 97.9 The Loop put together a contest where five bands were chosen from the 600 band submissions and delivered to Bon Jovi for approval of only 2 bands. The NEW fans that attended the show, not expecting to be hit with their power and professionalism, the crowd quickly took to Sleeping Shelby with open arms and the evidence of a fantastic show was realized from over 5000 hits to their website in the following days, with praise.
Sleeping Shelby has appeared on WGN-TV Channel 9’s morning news show and was asked to come back in early 2006. They have also enjoyed airplay from the two top Chicago rock stations, 95.1 WIIL Rock and 97.9 The Loop, as each stations morning shows have been dedicated to Sleeping Shelby.
Their debut cd is now available along with the completion of their music video to the single “Lie the World”. Sleeping Shelby has also been invited to perform at the 2006 NAMM Show in Anaheim CA for IK Multimedia. As a result of performing at NAMM this year, Electro Voice, Odyssey Gear and IK Multimedia have brought Slepeing Shelby in as endorsers fo their products.
