STUTTGART

STUTTGART

With the majority of the bands members dating back to collaborations in the early 90’s with Tribal Opera and later Cupcakes (signed to DreamWorks), this Chicago-based quartet is nothing short of local music legend. Featuring Preston Graves (Tribal Opera, Cupcakes) on vocals, Matt Walker (Tribal Opera, Cupcakes, Filter, Garbage, Smashing Pumpkins, Morrissey) on drums, Scott Tallarida (Cassius Clay, EXO) on guitar and vocals, and Spock (Tribal Opera, Dick Prall) on bass and vocals, these guys boast a musical resume as long as it is impressive.

Stuttgart – named after the birth city of Graves – came to fruition shortly after the dissolution of Cupcakes, as a way for Walker and Graves to continue their collaborations while the former was on the road with new projects. Originally going by the name Kill for Firecracker, the duo realized that their little vignettes had grown into full-blown songs. After six years of songwriting, and with Walker publicly splitting from his most recent gig with Morrissey, Tallarida and Spock were brought in to round out the project, and the current line-up was born.

LUCKY 3 BLUES BAND

The Lucky 3 Blues Band is a new group of Chicago music veterans exploring the blues in the 21st century. Their unique style of “Blues Confusion” draws from a deep reservoir of original songs, blues classics, & the odd left turn. Featuring electric & acoustic guitar, harmonica, archaic drum machine sounds & vocals – The Lucky 3 play “old school” blues with a modern sensibility.

AMBASSADORS TO EARTH

AMBASSADORS TO EARTH

Ambassadors To Earth are a four piece instrumental band whose music is influenced by surf music, garage rock, spy movies, cop shows, car chases, and the Lawrence Welk Show.

Ambassadors To Earth are: Larry Brown, drums (Zapruder Point), Marshall Dawson, guitar (Spies Who Surf), Tommy Klein, guitar (Spies Who Surf), and Dan Polonsky, bass (Nash Kato).

The band formed in 2007, when they performed the Ventures classic album, Ventures in Space, from start to finish. The evening was such a success that they began writing and recording original material. Ambassadors To Earth are based in Chicago, IL.
