why book the real gone?

The Real Gone has been bringing authentic surf rock and rockabilly to Chicagoland since 2007. They’ve opened for Southern Culture on the Skids at City Winery and other national acts at Naperville’s Ribfest, Chicago’s Taste of Randolph Street and Reggie’s Rock Club. They’ve played many fests, private and corporate events, car shows and clubs. The Real Gone travels back in time to rock the classic music of the Ventures, the Shadows, and Dick Dale, then resurface with surf-rendered versions of modern hits from the Pixies, Muse, Flaming Lips and much more.

The Real Gone brings sophistication to surf-rock, while keeping it fun and light-hearted. They bring a classic, slick look with top-notch musicianship, playing classic surf rock instrumentals of the 50’s and 60’s. The Real Gone sets itself apart from other similar acts by twisting popular music hits into classic surfy instrumentals of the 50’s/60’s.
