Published Sep 11, 2007Legendary Bronx-based post-punk-funk sibling act ESG have announced they will pack it in for the last time. The band are scheduled to play their final show at the Abbey Pub in Chicago on September 21, as part of the Estrojam Festival. Singer Renee Scroggins explained the decision to retired, saying: "It's been a long career. We were able to play a good 30 years in the business. I'm just really tired right now. We love our fans, and we appreciate 30 years of support." While the band have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity thanks to reissues (the newly released compilation A South Bronx Story 2: Collector's Edition), and have been active over the last few years with new recordings, the sisters Scroggins will use their energy elsewhere. Renee also added that she will begin producing other artists, beginning with a singer named Marquetta.
