modern day romeos

MODERN DAY ROMEOS – For over a decade, every weekend, MDR has remained a top drawing party band with impressive numbers in any venue or festival. All six of its members have come together from different musical backgrounds to create one of the most fun, unique and high-energy shows that you can experience locally.

libido funk circus

LIBIDO FUNK CIRCUS – Originally formed as an over-the-top tribute to the Disco music of the 70’s, Libido Funk Circus has been relentlessly entertaining a wide range of audiences since it’s inception in 1996. While they continue to play your favorite Disco hits, the addition of hundreds of dance & rock songs, spanning from the 60’s through today, has quite literally turned LFC into a human jukebox. From the hits of the good ole’ Motown days to the bass-thumping beats of today’s dance music; from the always danceable Disco grooves to the new wave rock of the 80’s LFC has it “covered”. Take one look at their ever-expanding song list and you will be sold!
While their legendary catalog has certainly become the band’s trademark, LFC’s non-stop energy, showmanship and exquisite musicality is what truly sets them apart from the rest. With top-notch, professional musicians (including both male and female lead vocalists) and hundreds of songs under its collective belt, Libido Funk Circus has all the tools to make a room move all night long!

second hand soul band

SECOND HAND SOUL – Motown, Soul, Rock & Roll is exactly the sound that defines this Chicago band.  Second Hand Soul Band takes you back to the days when all that mattered was meeting your friends for some drinks and an all night dance party!  This energetic, dynamic seven-piece band has many years of experience and really knows how to entertain! Between the funky hits of the ’70s, the one-hit wonders, the disco and the soulful songs of that era, you will be moved to dance and sing; “Songs you remember from the nights you don’t!”

classical blast

CLASSICAL BLAST – Classical Blast is a unique band dedicated to bringing the classical arts to mainstream rock & pop music. We’re classically trained musicians who love to rock! We believe in the power of the arts — to inspire, to educate, to uplift, to effect change, even to heal. We often use our time to teach or to perform at hospitals to help positively change the energy for those dealing with illness. We also believe music has no boundaries. We apply these concepts to our live shows by performing whatever we enjoy playing. Who says we have to stick with one genre? Our influences have no boundaries. Classical Blast’s style, technique and tools breathe new life into rock music as well as the classics. From Bach to classic rock to metal to pop, we hope you’ll find our approach to music a refreshing change. It’s the past, present & future all brought together in perfect harmony! An evening with Classical Blast is a total blast for any age! Join us for the ride…


DIVA – DIVA is a tribute to the women of Pop. From Madonna to Lady Gaga, Mariah and Celine to Britney and Christina, Cher, Tina, Shania and many more. Hits spanning four decades to keep you moving through the night.


SEMPLE – SEMPLE is a Chicago based band that prides itself on it’s entertaining combination of musicianship and high energy stage performance. Fronted by one of the city’s most prominent lead singers and the band’s namesake, Keith Semple, every show is guaranteed to be a nonstop great time! With styles ranging from 70’s Rock to modern pop songs and everything in between, everyone is sure to leave happy. Known for their diverse array of medleys that feature bands such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, 70’s Rock, party songs and even alternative/punk rock, each show is packed with variety and contrast that takes the audience on a generational tour of music genres. Not to mention, SEMPLE features several of their own original songs in almost every show! The mutual love and enjoyment of performing music that each member possesses is not only obvious from the moment the band starts playing, but also supports a strong chemistry that makes their shows an enjoyment for everyone in the room.  From bars and fests to weddings and corporate events, SEMPLE is available for your entertainment needs in almost any fashion. With a driving determination to be the absolute best at what they do, this is a band that is sure to leave you satisfied!


INFINITY – Formed in 1985, Infinity grew from being not only a Journey Tribute band, but one of the top drawing cover – bands in the Midwest. Infinity continues to break attendance records at Clubs and Festivals across Chicago and the Midwest. But more importantly, Infinity maintains the intangible ability to include the audience and make them feel as if they are part of the show. A quote from Bob ” this is not our show, it’s yours” Infinity enjoys thousands of fans young and young at heart, who sing along and become the chorus to their music. This is the difference between performers and genuine entertainers. Perhaps this is the reason for the perpetual following and return to area Festivals and Clubs across the Midwest year after year after year.


HI FI SUPERSTAR UNPLUGGED – Having distinguished themselves as a popular, crowd-engaging LIVE band, this “Unplugged” version of the award-winning Hi Fi Superstar features acoustic guitars, keys and vocals by Mike Paterson and Dave Rudin covering decades of great rock and pop music and fun party covers from the Beatles to Bon Jovi and Chicago to Keith Urban!
