The Drysdales

The Drysdales


Experienced Midwest Rock/Power Pop Group. Primary players have ProgRock & Garage Rock Backgrounds. Many choice supporting slots (Raspberries/Smithereens etc..) and Rave reviews from the the Eponimous first Album "The Drysdales" have built local/loyal fanbase.


Two guitarists/songwriters who wanted to break from their past (ProgRock & Garage Rock) and start something NEW decided to put together a POWER POP Band in the BAdfinger/RAspberries vein. First Album was filled with Energized & Melodic 3-4 Minute morsels influenced by both British, Canadian & US Rockers (Small Faces, Floyd, Beatles, Del Shannon, Neil Young, Raspberries, Badfinger, Velvet Underground, Rundgren, Zombies, Peter Green, The Flock etc..) LOUD, Fun, HUGE Beverly Hillbillies Freaks!!!!

First Album received Rave Reviews ( and they took the BAnd out to see the "Live" interest. A few gigs and then a chance to play with some "RAspberries" a Smithereen and other Midwesterns (Cheap Trick, Elvis Brothers, The Flock etc..). Most recently supported the RAspberries Reunion at the House of Blues to over 2,000... Recently headlined Chicago Inetrnational Pop Overthrow (IPO) and recording their 2nd Album with support from membres of Cheap Trick, Smithereens, Urge Overkill, Elvis Brothers and others..
