The Special Consensus is a bluegrass band that has achieved a contemporary sound in their four decades of performing, making their music a modern classic. The band is led by Greg Cahill, banjo player and recipient of the prestigious Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), and includes Rick Faris (guitar), Dan Eubanks (bass) and Nate Burie (mandolin). Special Consensus has received six awards from the IBMA and two Grammy nominations. They are four talented vocalists and instrumentalists who follow their creative desires without straying too far from their bluegrass roots. The 19th band recording, Rivers and Roads (Compass Records, 2018), was nominated for the 2018 Best Bluegrass Album GRAMMY award and received 2018 IBMA awards for Album of the Year and Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year (for the tune “Squirrel Hunters”). Chicago Barn Dance, released by Compass Records in 2020, is the 20th Special C recording that celebrates both the 45th band anniversary and the long-standing connection of country and bluegrass music with Chicago from the time of the WLS “National Barn Dance” that was a precursor to the Grand Ole Opry. The songs on this recording relate to Chicago and/or are written by artists who once lived in Chicago. The title song “Chicago Barn Dance” received the 2020 IBMA Song of the Year Award.
Come enjoy an evening of live music, food and drinks at the Isis Music Hall. Reservations are highly recommended.
Winter Concerts 2020 · 7:00pm
Here's the scoop on our Fall and Winter Concerts!!
Things are going to be a little different due to the "new norm" / COVID19 regulations. So we ask that y'all just bear with us!!
Unlike our previous concerts, these will be a dinner and a concert format - We have to follow strict distancing rules right now until things return to normal.
There will be tables throughout the music hall and on the balcony - these tables will be specifically spaced to meet distancing regulations.
These tables will be the ONLY seating.
The tables are available for DINING only - unfortunately with the limited seating we can not offer tables to those that are only enjoying a beverage. Seating is limited so we recommend calling and making dinner
Our same delicious food will be back on the menu in a more limited selection until we can get things up and running steadily again.
We hope that you understand and support these changes as we all are working through how to navigate these times!! We're so excited to back open for live music and to see some familiar faces!!
Please give a call with any other questions or to reserve a table!! 828-575-2737
