See PMC Perform April 17th!

Poor Man’s Cow is performing at The Walking Farm's annual event, Spring Thaw in Evanston at The Farm House, April 17, 2016. The event starts at 5pm through 8pm. It will have a wonderful night of farm-to-table tastings featuring heavy appetizers from Farmhouse’s spring BBQ menu. A large selection of local beer and wine will be served.

Poor Man’s Cow will be performing our unique blend of musical styles to entertain you. During the Spring Thaw, take the opportunity to bid on an extraordinary silent auction offering – a privately-catered dinner for eight prepared to your tastes by J and L Catering.

You can get your tickets now, at the event site.

Early bird pricing for tickets purchased through April 4th is $70. Every early bird ticket purchaser will receive a $10.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE redeemable for seedlings at our Annual Seedling Sales, held during the second and third weekends in May at the Howard Street Farm (3669 Howard St., Skokie). After April 4th, tickets will be $75/person.

We hope to see you there…

Welcome to Poor Man’s Cow!

Started in 1984 at the University of Illinois, Poor Man’s Cow was an instant hit with their good looks, charm, and solid musical abilities. Fast forward to 2016 and the band is still together – albeit quite a bit more experienced and a little bit prettier with the addition of a new lead singer.

Poor Man’s Cow unique sound comes from a blend of musical styles and tastes as well as a willingness to try anything if it sounds good and makes people smile. Rock and Roll, hearty blues, cool originals, and a few ballads thrown in to help you get your second wind, are what this band is all about.

If you’re looking for a fun night out with great tunes then vocalist Kim Carlson, guitarists Daryl Sandfort and Chris Frantzis, pianist and organist Alex Ex, bassist Tim Bingham, percussionist BEATsmith, and drummer John Boex can provide a high energy time with a down to earth feel that will make it impossible for you to walk away not wanting more.

Come see us – we’ll be playing…

Keep Calm and Love Goats.
