Rebel Soul Revival
Rebel Soul Revival is a modern take on some age old ideas. Matt Keen is a rocker at heart and has finally formed a band that matches his nature in every way. From soulful, southern rock, with a grit and kick that would rival early Skynyrd and Allman Brothers Band to classic reggae and R&B. Keen brings an intensity that skews the lines between classic and current. This band truly can do it all and prides themselves on a progressive approach to music without forgetting their roots.
THE TYME MACHINES
The Tyme Machines are a Chicago based, pop-rock band that prides itself on writing and performing infectious, quirky rock originals. Their sophomore EP, Straight Club Bangers (follow up to debut EP, Super Club Serenades) features 5 songs depicting the lighter side of life in Wisconsin. Tunes such as “My Bowling Team” and “1986 Gym Shorts” were inspired by front man, Bryan Adamick’s (or stage persona “Rod Stiffski”) years living in Wisconsin and observing local slang and tradition. Joined by Burt Burberson, Conrad Baine and Chet “Ego” Bratski, the band is also known for sharing its versions of awkward 1980’s and 90’s covers that you probably never wanted to hear again. Think… “She Drives Me Crazy”
