About the bands:
Catfish and the Dogstars
Drawing from a myriad of influences, including (but not limited to) classic rock, jazz, R&B, Americana, heavy metal, and prog rock, Catfish and the Dogstars offers listeners a refreshingly complex, yet grounded brand of music. With an ear for detailed orchestrations, vocal harmonies, and fluid rhythmic and stylistic changes, this foursome is sure to keep you on your literal and figurative toes with their high-energy and engaging live sets.
Hailing from Chicago, Lunar Ticks aim to barrel through stylistic boundaries by recreating and expanding on roots music (rock, jazz, punk, country, funk, soul, world, bluegrass etc.), with a DIY ethic and a jovial attitude. The band is influenced by the innovative Alternative rock of Wilco and My Morning Jacket, with a healthy touch of improvisation and composition in the vein of Umphrey’s Mcgee and Phish. Along our travels we’ve had the pleasure of opening for Mungion, Mr. Blotto, Old Shoe, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, Cornmeal, and members of Vulfpeck. Each show is a unique experience with diverse originals and covers, crowd interaction, and exploratory improvisation. The band and the audience play off each other, creating something that’s never happened before, and never will again.
Zoofunkyou is a psychedelic stew featuring a Chicago based bluesy broth, sizzlin' with soul, chunks of funk, and meaningful melodic lyrics. Reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, The Alabama Shakes, and Funkadelic. The electric jams of Zoofü are guaranteed to tickle the soul, melt the face, and shake the booty!
