The Walsher Clemons Band began in 2008 in the southwest suburbs of Chicago as a power trio consisting of a young Frank Minella on bass guitar, a supple Patrick Walsh on electric guitar, and an innocent Michael Campo on the drums. The three high school students had an instantaneous musical chemistry, and what started as improvisational ideas slowly became a somewhat respectable catalog of jazz/rock/jam songs. The trio performed original music that was heavily influenced by bands like Phish, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, and Dave Matthews.
The Casual Ties are a rock/funk band originally started by Western Illinois University music students. Their debut album, “Dealing Hypotheticals”, showcases their eclectic mix of Funk/Rock/Jazz/Americana. Throughout the nine tracks you will hear three part harmonies, intricate instrumentals, and high-energy solos, all while maintaining a groove that you can’t help but move your feet to.

The Pistachio Brothers create a soulful funky acoustic and electric sound, heavily influenced by the Grateful Dead and the jam band scene! By adding our own flavor to classic covers, and never playing the same song the same way twice, mixed in with some multi-genre originals, you are sure to be dancing by the end of the night! The percussive rhythm of the acoustic guitar accompanied by some of the down right nastiest electric guitar solos blends together forming the sound you all know as The Pistachio Brothers!!
