Welcome to Poor Man’s Cow!

Started in 1984 at the University of Illinois, Poor Man’s Cow was an instant hit with their good looks, charm, and solid musical abilities. Fast forward to 2019 and the band is still together – albeit quite a bit more experienced.

Poor Man’s Cow unique sound comes from a blend of musical styles and tastes as well as a willingness to try anything if it sounds good and makes people smile. Rock and Roll, hearty blues, cool originals, and a few ballads thrown in to help you get your second wind, are what this band is all about.

If you’re looking for a fun night out with great tunes then guitar and piano Daryl Sandfort, guitar Chris Frantzis, bass Rob Graf, percussion BEATsmith, and drums John Boex can provide a high energy time with a down to earth feel that will make it impossible for you to walk away not wanting more.

Come see us – we’ll be playing…

Keep Calm and Love Goats!.
