Spocket
Spocket
Rooted in funk with elements of rock & jazz, Spocket's tightknit horn lines & rock solid rhythm section set the stage for their unique brand of funk-fusion
Crisp
CRISP's humble beginning's date back to August of 2013, when Elburn, IL native Kevin McMahon (bass player/band leader/composer and arranger) moved back to Illinois after a living in New Orleans for the previous five years. Upon his return to the Chicagoland area, he had a goal in mind; to assemble a band of like minded, talented musicians to compose and preform original Funk/Jazz/Fusion music, in a time when DJ's and tribute bands rule the landscape of modern nightlife entertainment. Kevin is honored to have secured the talents of Stewart Ream: Keyboards/Vocals, Constantine Alexander: Trumpet, Ian Letts: Saxophones, Joel Ream: Guitar/Vocals, Jerry Williams: Saxophones, and Greg Essig: Drums, to CRISP's line up of sensational musicians. Over time, CRISP has come to embody Fusion driven composition with open improvisation. Or as we prefer, PROGRESSIVE FUNK with WEIRD LYRICS...ENJOY
Julius Dolls
Life is beautiful sometimes.
Paul Brinnel and his Personnel
Paul Brinnel and his Personnel revels in its modern take on the great singer-songwriters of the 1970s. Eclectic Harry Nilsson/Emitt Rhodes-esque music teeming with dense harmonic developments and electrifying transitions, Paul’s music gushes with his divergent influences, zipping between Pop Rock, Blues, Funk, Motown, Tango, Swing, Yacht Rock, Southern Rock, Calypso, and more. Paul sings and plays evocatively, and often barefoot, rife with personal flourishes that lend emotional weight to his introspective lyrics.
Smear Campaign
Founded by Taylor Kreemer and Josh Stanley as a recording project in a shared studio between stints performing with the post-punk outfit Vagrant Beat, Smear Campaign is informed by styles ranging from Downtempo and Trip Hop to Pop and Jazz. The result is for anyone with an ear for the odd or out of step.
