Live musicGlam Rock
The Steak House Mints are comprised of curent and former members of Filter, Backyard Tire Fire, Magic Box, and Maggie Speaks. 2013 was a good year for The Steak House Mints. The band released their second CD and played great shows including an appearance at Taste of Chicago. A successful radio campaign led to airplay on 158 stations nation wide. On their second album, Love Songs for Prostitutes, The Steak House Mints continue to explore a wide variety of genres including glam rock, punk, psychedelic folk, orchestral pop, and even a little mariachi. The thread that ties this collection together is strong song writing characterized by catchy melodies and clever lyrics. The Mints are proud to have been selected by Metromix as one of Chicago’s top ten unsigned bands and featured on MTV’s My Life as Liz and Public Television’s Road Trip Nation. “Their sound is an intricate and beautiful style of orchestral pop influenced by the Zombies, Nick Drake and "Pet Sounds” era Beach Boys.” - Jim Derogatis Sound Opinions “The Steak House Mints dive head first into orchestra- Centered power pop loaded with meaty rhythms, melodic harmonies, and pristine production.” - Illinois Entertainer “This is clever, top-notch pop-rock music with a touch of glam and a healthy twist of weird that I really love. It's all made even more ear-catching by the charismatic vocals of front man Billy Dave Sherman.” - Windy City Examiner
