Updates: Animation appearing at Cheers in Midlothian on October 13th

On Saturday, October 13th Animation is going to be rocking the house at Cheers in Midlothian, IL! We played there earlier this year and are really excited to return. Lights Out, Chicago’s excellent UFO/Schenker tribute band will also be there with us. It’s going to be one great show for sure! See you then!

In case you haven’t already noticed, the show at Eddie’s Bar and Grille in Granite City, IL has been rescheduled to November 30th, 2018. We will be appearing with their local Pink Floyd tribute band: Red, White, and Floyd. 

MT Barrels in Schaumburg has closed down. It was a great venue that Animation has loved playing at. It will be missed. The show we had set for Nov 24th has obviously been cancelled. We are looking to replace that show with another in November. Stay tuned…

Last Show of 2017: Sundance Saloon

Thanks to all who came out to what was an amazing show at MT Barrels! We appreciate all your support. It was such a fun show!

Next up, and the LAST of this 30th Anniversary year, will be a performance at Sundance Saloon in Mundelein on Saturday, December 30th. Those of you who know the area might know the place under its former name of The Loaded Buffalo. And NO it’s not all country, they have a wide mix of music for you to choose from.

This will be our first time there. Can’t wait! 

Come on up for a pre New Year’s Eve celebration and enjoy the show!
