The Real Gone
THE REAL GONE STORY A revival of the West Coast sounds from the ’50s and ’60s is happening right now in the Midwest! The Real Gone travels back in time to rock the classic music of The Ventures, The Sonics, and Dick Dale, then resurfaces with surfed out versions of modern hits from The Pixies, Muse, and more. The Real Gone has been bringing authentic surf rock and rockabilly to Chicagoland since 2007. The genre plays well in all situations. The Real Gone’s take on The Ventures’ “Fugitive” and reimangined rendition of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" were played on air on 93 WXRT. They’ve opened for Southern Culture on the Skids at City Winery and other national acts at Naperville’s Ribfest, Chicago’s Taste of Randolph Street and Reggie’s Rock Club. The band has been well suited and hired for corporate and private parties, burlesque and variety shows, car shows, and charitable events. Let their sonic waves wash over your event! You’ll wish you had a surfboard. The musicians of The Real Gone are seasoned players with experience in a myriad of genres. Phil Lazzari and Bret Figura have been band mates for years. They have opened up for such artists as Clint Black, Drive-By-Truckers, Melvin Sparks, Fareed Haque, Caitlin Carey (Whiskeytown) & Thad Cocrell, Devil in a Woodpile, Anna Fermin’s Trigger Gospel, Reckless Kelly and more. Joe Rauen is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. He has performed extensively across the United States and his music has appeared on NPR’s Snap Judgement.
