The Shadows Of Knight

The Shadows Of Knight is an American garage and blues rock band from Chicago, founded in 1964. They gained recognition for their cover of Them's "Gloria," which reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1966. The band cleverly made a single lyric change to evade censorship by AM Radio stations. With a loyal following in Chicago, they sought to play their version of British Blues music that originated in the city.

Although the original lineup disbanded in 1967, *The Shadows Of Knight* continued to perform and record until 2022 when vocalist and frontman Jim Sohns passed away. The talented lineup included Jerry McGeorge, Warren Rogers, Tom Schiffour, Jim Sohns, David "Hawk" Wolinski, Jeffrey "Woody" Woodruff, Joe Kelley, and Dan Baughman.
