$500 - $4000 per event
Contemporary folk group, lead by Amy Shoemaker and Susie Lofton, with their amazing vocal blend and soaring harmonies, and two of Chicago's best-loved musicians, Jim Cox on upright bass and Don Stiernberg on mandolin – performing originals and some of the best-loved songs of the '60s.

Very acoustic, very much listening music, very heavenly altogether.

The Sweet Maries all started when Amy Shoemaker met Susie Lofton. Their new harmonies breathed heavenly light into Amy's songs and many classics. Magic was born! After a stunning debut performance at Act One on Chicago's northside, Amy and Susie began working together regularly, and soon they were to ask Don Stiernberg and Jim Cox to join and the band took form. They continue to sweep audiences off their feet with their soaring harmonies.

“The Sweet Maries sizzles with its eclectic mix of songs and styles–everything from folk, blues and jazz to gospel and traditional, including outstanding originals. Performing with a flair that gathers in the audience like bees to honey, The Sweet Maries delivers a fun and very sweet musical experience. Amy Shoemaker, Susie Lofton, Don Stiernberg, and Jim Cox are a superb group infused with chemistry, chops, and charisma. The debut album is very highly recommended, and a live show is not to be missed!” — Lilli Kuzma, “Folk Festival” on 90.9fm WDCB Public Radio
