You know the songs, but you haven't heard them covered like this before. Second Time Around, Chicagoland's premiere classic rock cover band, meticulously recreates songs in ways other bands can't touch, from the splendid three-part harmonies of Yes, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, the pitch-perfect guitar solos of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Joe Wash, the rumbling organ solos of Boston and Deep Purple, to the blazing harmonica of The Doobie Brothers, The Rolling Stones and The Pretenders. Made up of some of the nicest and most easy-going musicians you'll ever find, Second Time Around has been thrilling audiences for over a decade and never tire of seeing jaws drop during the dueling guitar solos at the end of "Hotel California," the howling vocals of "Gimme Shelter" or the stunning intro of "I've Seen All Good People."
