Half Empty is very excited to be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in February.  We’ve had a lot of fun over the past 10 years and created many great memories and met a ton of new friends along the way while playing every major club and festival in the Fox Valley and surrounding areas.

We are very humbled to have been honored with 3 WAMI Awards (2011 Cover Band of the Year, 2011 People’s Choice Northeast, and 2012 People’s Choice Northeast).


It’s hard to believe 10 years have gone by already!  The good news is we don’t plan on ending any time soon, and are looking forward to many more memorable shows and new friends!
