Guns n' Roses, Van Halen, Def Leppard, and now Wireless Soul, are all rock bands who have performed live at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. One big difference though is their ages. Wireless Soul band members Vince Minogue of Northbrook and Joe Cangelosi of McHenry are only 10 and 11 years old making them the youngest rock band to have ever perfomed live at this iconic venue.
Local youth rock band Wireless Soul performed live in the Concourse at Allstate Arena on Wednesday March 27, 2013. Their one hour show began at 6pm and they played 2 sets for the audience, covering such hits as "I Wanna Be Sedated" by The Ramones, "You Really Got Me" by the Kinks/Van Halen, and then rocked the crowd with "Cochise" by Audioslave, and "T.N.T." by ACDC! After the show, fans headed into the arena at 7pm to watch the Chicago Wolves beat the Oklahoma City Barons in an overtime shootout! The game was televised live on
The day after their historic performance, Wireless Soul returns to the recording studio to finish laying down the vocal tracks on their upcoming debut album. The album, produced by legendary guitarist, Dave Uhrich, will be a compilation of cover tunes and original songs by Vince and Joe who also write their own music. Vince began writing music at the age of eight and began studying guitar at seven years old. He also plays electric bass. Joe began playing drums at the age of four and also plays piano. Both boys sing vocals as well.
