A Taste Of Alewife

The invader species in our natural habitat. Well, yeah, it was the AO Hawaiian Hideout in Chicago. The cocktails are astounding. And the food is extraordinary. The sound should ring a bell for you, too.

Alewife On Stage at FitzGerald's SideBar

Based in the Chicago “urb-urbs” of Oak Park / Riverside / Elmhurst, Alewife draws from its members’ eclectic backgrounds across genre borderlands without boundaries.

Mitch McNeil — guitar, bass, keyboards, arrangements
Beverly Gibson — lead vocal, accordion, keyboards, melodica
Alex Haussmann — congas, djembe, chekere, cajon
Brian Mahoney — bass, keyboards, guitar, saxophone
Miguel Gonzalez — drums, Handsonic®, bongos, timbales


Sign up for updates and early warning signals from the band. We send about 1 email every couple of months. And we never, ever share your information with anybody. Ever.


Alewife is ranked #5 on the Latin chart in Oak Park, IL. Need we say more?!


Leave it to Mitch. He’s kept a digital diary of every show with personal notes, set lists, and photos. Dive in.
