Gordon Bonham Blues Band
The Gordon Bonham Blues Band lays down a hard driving brand of blues in the Chicago style with a bit of Texas and Mississippi thrown in. Tom Harold’s harmonica mastery works with Bonham’s guitar and the crack rhythm section of David Murray (bass) and Jeff Chapin (drums) in a sound reminiscent of the early Fabulous Thunderbirds. High energy and danceable, but also “Low Down and Blue,” the GBBB continues to deliver as one of the midwest’s finest blues bands.

The legendary NRBQ--founder & driving force Terry Adams on keyboards & vocals, Scott Ligon on guitar & vocals, Casey McDonough on bass & vocals, and Conrad Choucroun on drums -released their latest studio album, the critically-acclaimed "Brass Tacks", in June. "Brass Tacks" is as accomplished and as spirited an album as the band has ever made," says the Los Angeles Daily News. "Brass Tacks" contains the fun, zest, humor and flat-out rock that has defined the band since their birth decades ago," says Rolling Stone in their online review, and, adds Magnet, "...hats off to the NRBQ dynasty." The one and only Q hit the road this summer ("...the band is as tight and passionate as it has ever been. It's still making music that is as impossibly infectious as ever," said the Cleveland Scene of a recent show). If you missed them, here"s another chance to see NRBQ live. What to expect besides the unexpected? "Ability to groove like no other band on the planet."--popmatters. "NRBQ is still liable to play anything. Roaring rockabilly, transcendent pop-rock, roadhouse blues, avant jazz - you name it."--Minneapolis Tribune. "Honest about inspiration wherever it is found, fearless, searching for possibilities, taking chances." -Daily Hampshire Gazette. "Inventing music right before our ears."-Blurt NRBQ Headquarters is the band"s facebook page.

Straight Up Chumps
The Straight Up Chumps are a rock band based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. Formed in March of 2013, they started as an acoustic duo with Aryn Ross on rhythm guitar and Ross Johnson on lead guitar. By June they lost the acoustic guitars and added Ethan Bremmer on drums and Seagers Rodrigues on lead vocals and bass to complete their lineup. Influenced by a variety of acts ranging from classic rockers like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd to more contemporary artists like Daft Punk and Imagine Dragons, the Chumps have forged a sound that’s rooted in earthy blues-infused funk medleys and climbs into stratospheric, tension-filled rock jams.
