- Event Details
- Sexfist Guitarist Clutch Johnson and banjo player Chuck Oakton met each other in early 2001 when, during the talent portion of the Mr. Universe pageant, both contestants played the same song. The song was Bill Monroe’s ‘Real Life Blues’ and, embarrassing a moment though it was, an instant friendship was formed. They began playing as a duo until out of spite and jealousy. Then in the summer of 2002 Jeffrey Chestnut, with whom Oakton had worked in the adult film ‘Shotgun Charlie,’ began sitting in on fiddle. Finally, in May 2003, bass fiddler Bradley Longwood blackmailed his way into the band and Sexfist was born. They have since taken Chicago by storm, amazing audiences with their high-energy, hard-driving picking and angelic harmony singing. Sexfist has won numerous awards and accolades including Third All-Time Highest Score on the Golden Tee game at the Oasis in Rogers Park, a citation in June 2005 by Officer Reginald A. White for disorderly conduct, and a 2007 Franky nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The band is not currently touring in support of its self-titled debut CD as they are not legally allowed to operate motor vehicles. You can however see the Fist live and in person every Tuesday night at The Abbey Pub.
