Chasing Rachel
April 29th, 2016
Based on a true story, Chasing Rachel is a riveting tale of the 1990s. The story begins with a free spirited soul from Chicago, IL (Dan Colles) who plays the part of a lead singer and rhythm guitarist. Dan has an uncanny ability to entertain as a front man and knows he needs to find a couple more dudes that share his passion for music. Dan's search for the perfect sound of 90s rock leads him to two guys from downstate IL, David Jacobs and Nick Sherrill. Together the powe trio performs to the best of their ability, all the while knowing there's something missing. Low and behold, the guys find an experienced and talented individual just waiting for a band to call, Graham Chlada. Playing their 90s tunes to all that will listen, the four "keep going and going" in the pursuit of the magically babelicious "Rachel".

Old Smoke Band
May 20th, 2016
Bloomington’s own, the Old Smoke Band, is an Americana Roots Rock band formed in 2013. A tasty soup of heavy grooves and high flying guitar that has been left to soak in the blues and take you to your happy place.

Taking influence from the masters of southern blues / rock / country and modern roots revivalists, OSB brings classic American roots music and infectious grooves to the table and leaves you lickin' on your canine tooth.

The band formed in 2013 as a duo called The Armadillo Brothers. After a year of soul searching and expansion, Old Smoke Band was launched. Adam Humphreys fronts the group with face-punching guitar riffs and soul crushing good looks. Heath Brandon and Scott Neuweg lay down the rhythm, and Chris Lackey rounds it out with some jack of all trades piano and harp skills that could only be described as sorcery.
