Sexfist Wins Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Contest!

November 16, 2009.

Chicago, IL. The Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival’s Last Banjo Standing tallied over 20,000 votes from Midwest music fans in the last month, yet a mere 7 votes separated 1st and 2nd place when voting ended at midnight on 11/16. Two bands earned it, so, two winners were crowned, as the Festival announced that both Sexfist and Great Divide will appear on the main stage with Bela Fleck & The Fleckstones, Dr. Dog and the Emmitt-Nershi Band this 12/12.

They’ll split the cash prize and share in the opportunity to repay their loyal followings with back-to-back sets to commence the day’s Main Stage lineup. Blues fusion extraordinaires Great Divide will kickoff the mainstage event, followed immediately by the hootenanny that is Sexfist. ADDED BONUS: Sexfist has invited its fans to enjoy “Break-Fist w/ Sexfist” while taking in the Great Divide set. More to come on what the boys will serve.

Sexfist, Chicago’s most politically incorrect band name, started as a duo in 2001 and has since become the five-man band spawned in May 2003. Often found under the moniker “The Henhouse Prowlers,” at clubs around the nation, Sexfist has found themselves comfortably alongside Cornmeal as one of Chicago’s two most popular bluegrass acts. On tour since 2004, you can find them every Tuesday night at the Red Line Tap and every second Thursday at Quencher’s Saloon.
