Satsang at Tonic Room (Chicago, IL)

April 17, 2016 at Tonic Room in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=bF7rxEU9pYOjGRlmAtWtXN

Satsang is a Conscious Music Collective made up of Drew McManus (Guitar/Vocals) Karl Roth (Bass, Keys, Vocals, Weissenborn) & Keller Paulson (Drums/Percussion) Blending world conscious lyrics with a unique blend of Reggae, Folk and Hip-Hop, Satsang seems to have something for every musical palate. The lyrics come from and are rooted in change, growth, awareness, and imperfection, and are used as a mission statement for reflection and activation. Touching on everything from the bliss of traveling and the growing pains of change, to the ills of the justice system and environmental encroachment. The live show is everything that the band name suggests: a gathering of people to assimilate and share their truths. The reggae rhythms put forth by the band keep everyone on their feet, and the lyrics leave them craving active and immediate change. Satsang has toured all over the country and has shared the stage with the likes of Steel Pulse, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Trevor Hall, Chris Berry, Mike Love, Jon Wayne and the Pain, Tubby Love and many many more. ” It still amazes me how far they have come in such a short period of time. With a very dedicated fan base and a lot of respect in the music community amongst other artists, Satsang is a band to watch closely. ” -GratefulWeb

Rebel Soul Revival, The Tyme Machines, and Liz Chidester Live at The Cobra Lounge

Shoeshine Boy Productions
$10 pre-sale – $12 at the door

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”
by the Fine Young Cannibals! Don’t miss them the
next time they play at your local establishment!
