ROCKzology Suggests: "Check These Bands Out!"


MULDOON'S rock + beer + chow = good times in wheaton il on friday nights

Nestled in the quaint atmosphere of the formerly blue-lawed town of Wheaton, Illinois (home of Wheaton College where noted evangelist Billy Graham went to school)...lies the cozy little spot known as Muldoon's Irish-American Eatery Pub & Restaurant (in photo: fave Friday-night bartenders from left-to-right Jamie Hoffman, Mike Carl, and Charlie Anne Harrington). I'm reviewing it here on ROCKzology because its a great rock music venue on Friday nights to experience exceptional all-original-music Chicago-area rock bands as well as the proverbial cover groups from time to time. Although its a little crowded space-wise for the bands, it just makes the friendy atmosphere all the more appealing (reminiscent of the old "Cheers" tv show crowd), from the cool color-framed picture of some of the staff hanging out after a ball game to the always sports-oriented programming dialed-in on their High-Def big-screen TVs surrounding the bar. Seemingly a students college-town hangout, as the start of the band's performing hour nears (usually around 9PM), Muldoon's fills up with folks of all ages that come by to sample the "free to the public" performances of various local rock bands. Several groups I have seen there in the recent past are Sonic Soul, Harlan Flo, Anita & The Yanks, among others and debuting there on April 1st, 2011 will be some friends of mine with their band "Into The Real".

"Muldoon's Wednesdays" feature $3 drafts (Guinness Stout, Bass Ale and 7 others...hey, check out my other blog's Youtube channel
BEERzology for a few laughs) and $3 appetizers (like buffalo wings, beer-battered mushrooms and 3 others). The food is way above par for a typical neighborhood pub (due to the attached restaurant area) and the selection of beer is more than ample...but for my money, Muldoon's intrepid dedication to bringing in and featuring live original rock music bands is what does it for me. The atmosphere is, like-I-said, quite friendly, crazy at times and a little loud on Friday music-nights...but couple this with a more-than-accommodating staff greeting you with a simple smile and a handshake (see the pic above of my favorite bartenders Jamie Hoffman, Mike Carl, and Charlie Anne Harrington always ready to keep you happy and your glasses filled with your fave brew) and you can't go wrong here. Even the over-worked and always-busy bar-back, Ulises Solano, makes the effort every time I'm there to say " are ya?".
Its just a great neighborly place to hang (especially Fridays) where the equation for food, fun and unalduterated fraternization with the opposite sex is: ROCK + BEER + CHOW = GOOD TIMES FRIDAY NIGHTS @ MULDOON'S Of Wheaton, Illinois. As their motto goes: "There are no strangers here; only friends who have not yet met"...'NufSed.
