  • Uncommon Ground - Lakeview 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)



A lament through gritted teeth. A joyous whoop and holler. A Saturday night. A Sunday morning. Blues to country to punk rock and beyond: Nathan Mongol Wells is a musician. First forming a band at 14, Nathan Mongol Wells has been onstage for a long time. A love for travel and the hidden stories that lie behind the mundane has informed his life as much as it has his songs, leading to an early love for art, a degree in architecture, and an eye for detail.

The Country Doctors founded their practice in 2001. They refer to themselves as a vintage honky-tonk band. Their roots are in the heartfelt repertoire of country musicians who played and sang with a purity of emotion often lacking in the genre today, while at the same time embracing contemporary artists who share a similar approach to country music. They have great vocalists in the band and do lots of arranged harmonies. They perform classic country tunes as well as original songs written in the style of the folks who influenced their music, such as Hank Sr., Merle Haggard, George and Tammy, Loretta Lynn and so many more. Their musicians are top notch, with a great rhythm section and soloists. Most of all they like to have fun with their music and their audience.
