We have put together an ALL STAR line-up of bands for your entertainment this year. Below is a list of those acts including links to their own websites, links to stream some of their music, as well as some video footage of the bands in action!
Each member of the band has such a diverse backround that musical influences are different for us all. These range from pure Jazz and funk to Hardcore heavy metal, new age alternative and punk. Merge has been together with the current group of bandmates now, since the summer of 2004.
The BlurkleZurps have been influenced by a variety of musical genres and artists. From the huge sound of Chicago in the 70's to the cool rhythm of the Doobie Brothers. Add some soul of Kool and the Gang and funk of ELO and you have a great start of our taste. We wouldn't miss out on the 80's rock which most of the group grew up on from Autograph, REO, Wild Cherry to The Police, Cheap Trick and Men at Work.
With a covers catalog that spans from Styx to Motley Crue, from Journey to Velvet Revolver, and from ZZ Top to Cheap Trick plus some Scorps, Ozzy, Hagar, and Kiss thrown in for good measure, Jury's Out can play with such diversity as to truly cater to a crowd.
Coming out to see Jury's Out is not just a great rock experience, but a truly entertaining evening. It's quite obvious that there exists a great chemistry between the members and they're out each and every show to make sure that the good times are shared by everyone.
Sister Groove and The Cross Town Jam have become musical favorites in the downstate Illinois area. With appearances for the past twelve years at local nightclubs, festivals, fairs, student events, corporate events, and private parties, Sister Groove has gained a reputation as a professional, well-organized, audience focused musical act.
Regardless of the words that tell their story, one thought overwhelms the listener as he or she attends any concert involving The Overtones – “These guys can really sing!”
These guys are John Deboy, brothers Augie and Paul Pence, and Levi Riggs. All in their early 20’s and either graduates or current students of Purdue University, The Overtones have been making great music for more than six years.
Whether performing in concerts throughout the Midwest on weekends or recording albums in Nashville, Tenn., and Lafayette, Ind., The Overtones have blended their musical lives into their personal lives as young professionals.
An energy and worship-driven Christian rock band from Central Illinois who's been said to really "pack a punch". Originally starting as a cover-only band, but now having completed a full length album on it's way to distribution, ODC plays mostly original songs along side a few popular covers.
