Wednesday, March 30 through the eye of the storm Faith in the Fallen rocked for the 100 Club of Chicago thanks to the efforts of the Orland Fire Protection District, IAFF Local 2754, Rock Bottom Brewery and more (Like how bout Carl and Mark huh??). FITF had a great time performing and want to thank all of the organizers and fans who ROCKED IN THE RAIN!! Check out all pictures on FB.
The purpose of the night was to raise funds for the 100 Club of Chicago–an organization that provides financial support to the families of fallen first responders in Cook and Lake Counties. They had beautiful t-shirts, pint glasses, and raffle prizes and proceeds from the food and Fire Chief Ale purchases also went to the organization.
We were joined by The Band of Brothers Pipes and Drums whose music cut through the room and set the tone for night–celebrating each other and having a good time, but never forgetting those who have made the greatest sacrifice.
FITF was honored to be a part of the night and enjoyed meeting all of our new friends and fans.
Big Show Announcement…coming…I swear…just waiting a little bit longer!
EP Update – Lead Guitar complete. Now it’s for Guy to unleash his vocal fury on the recording. But, not to worry, even when Guy hocks a loogie, it becomes a golden egg.
Take care and be safe! Thank you for your support.
Guy, James, Scott, Charles, Dan
Our next show is Wednesday March 30 at Rock Bottom Brewery in Orland Park, IL! A special event that we are honored to be a part of. Click here to join the Facebook Event and details on the address or you know…google Rock Bottom Brewery Orland Park…
We’ll be playing a long set as part of the 20th Annual Fire Chief Ale Series of Events. This annual event is a team effort between Orland Professional Firefighters Local 2754 and The 100 Club Of Chicago. It’s called “Kill the Keg”, and as the name implies, it requires drinking some cold, refreshing Fire Chief Ale with all proceeds and other donations going to the 100 Club of Chicago. This organization provides support to families of fallen police officers and firefighters in Cook and Lake Counties.
Beer, hard rock music and a great cause; sounds like a good reason to get out mid-week.
The party starts at 6 pm and FITF goes on at 7 pm. Come out and support a great cause while rocking to your favorite locals!
Speaking of FITF — Thank you to all of our fans who joined us at Chicago Star Bar this past Friday as we played with the legendary Lillian Axe and our friends in Teeze! What a great show! A lot of fun was had and we achieved burritos by night’s end. Check out some pics from the night by clicking here.
BIG SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT COMING THIS WEEK – So stay tuned! See you soon!

What’s up friends!
So coming off a really fun weekend laying foundation for our soon to be EP. Spent most of the weekend laying tracks for drums, rhythm guitar, bass, and keys– so next steps are lead guitar, vocals, tweaks and extras, followed by the traditional infusion of black magic, to generate that extra flavor. Had a great time with Nick and Chuck at Electrowerks Studio (pictured above) and, it goes without saying, pumped to be working with them.
We’ll keep you in the loop and hope to see some of our friends at a couple shows this month in the southern/sw chicagoland area.
March 18 – BIG SHOW at Chicago Star Bar in Chicago Ridge. This is gonna be great. We’re playing with hard rock vets Lillian Axe who are headlining the night – and are joined by Teeze – We had a great show with them in December. Here’s a link to the Facebook event. Tickets are $10 at the door and we kick things off at 9:00 pm!!
March 30 – Great opportunity to support a cause close to our hearts. We’ll be playing at Rock Bottom Brewery as part of the 20th Annual Fire Chief Ale Series of Events. This annual event is a team effort between Orland Professional Firefighters Local 2754 and The 100 Club Of Chicago. with all proceeds going to the 100 Club of Chicago, an organization that provides resources for the families of fallen police officers and firefighters living in Cook and Lake Counties. As some may know, James Pape, our lead guitar player is a firefighter / paramedic in the Orland Hills Department and we’re honored that the event has asked us to perform. The party starts at 6pm. I think we’ll be going on around 7 pm.
Here’s a link to the Facebook event!! It’s going to be a blast!
Well – that’s enough for now! Come out to the next show so we can say hi and rock on!
