The Bashful Youngens with The Unemployed Architects – December 21
The Eagle is excited to announce an evening of fun and entertainment featuring two talented bands! Both bands have hometown roots and are excited to get down at The Eagle for the holidays.
The Unemployed Architects will be starting the evening off “bringing the noise like no other with their smashing originals & uncanny flare for covering tunes of the past, present, & future.”
We’ll then welcome headlining act The Bashful Youngens to the stage! Formed in 2015, The Bashful Youngens are an Americana band out of Champaign, Illinois featuring Carrie Chandler and Aaron Short. Carrie and Aaron grew up 15 minutes apart, in Pontiac, IL and Forrest, IL, respectively. But they didn’t meet until a few years later, in college, at a party where they happened to spontaneously performed a song together. Fast forward to 2016 where they recorded and released their self titled debut album and to 2017 where they recorded and released their EP, “Inflorescent.” After adding a few more band members along the way (Brian Hilderbrand, Mitchell Killough, Stephen Johnson and Matt Chupp) The Bashful Youngens have shared the stage with artists like Paul Thorn, Jana Kramer, Lydia Loveless and Parker Millsap.

James Herr Acoustic – December 27
A solo acoustic act performing covers of favorite singer songwriters like James Taylor, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, and more. It’s the perfect chance to get out of the house during the holiday season!
From James Herr: “A few years ago I finally had the courage to play my favorite James Taylor Songs at an open mic. From there, I have been grateful for the support of the local music community to present my tribute to James Taylor and other singer-songwriters throughout the area. Playing at the Apollo Theatre, innumerable dinner music venues and outdoor festivals, I want to present the best of singer songwriters from the 60’s to the present. Thank you for supporting live local music!”
