Basement Jacks - June 3
Basement Jacks started in a basement in Winnetka. The Jacks were named by a friend who plays along with us occasionally, does lots of gigs in bars in the city, and is from Bucktown.

Members include: Craig Bradley (lead guitar and big corporate lawyer), Bob Ebersole (Keyboards and semi-retired ex CEO), Jim Law (Vocals and international banker of some type, and yes, he is to blame), John McGrath (Guitar and among less important things the best dad on the planet), Brad McLane (Drums and head hunter and all sorts of Village stuff ), Stuart McCrary (Bass Guitar and a big time consultant about something none of us really understands) and Scott Rodgers (Rhythm Guitar, Vocals, photography and annoying guy on the bike on Sheridan).

Johnny Russler and the Beach Bum Band - June 10
You can call the Beach Bum Band a “Parrothead band,” because the beach, warm weather, and the island themes parallel much of the ambience that Parrotheads enjoy. But the Beach Bum Band is NOT a Jimmy Buff ett cover band. The band certainly plays plenty of Buffett favorites, but you’re just as likely to hear music from Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Paul Simon, Dick Dale, Jerry Jeff Walker, and many others. They off er variety and entertainment for everyone who enjoys warm weather.

Final Say - June 17
Final Say was formed in 2007 and is owned and operated by the members of the band Maggie Speaks. Playing over 170 shows a year for the past 9 years, Maggie Speaks found that their demand in the private, corporate, festival and nightclub market far exceeded their availability. In 2006, the members of Maggie Speaks created Spoken Four under the Maggie Speaks umbrella to satisfy this demand, only to realize the demand didn’t stop there. With over 300 shows on the books for Maggie Speaks and Spoken Four in 2007, the members of Maggie Speaks are at it again. The response and continuing increase in demand for both Maggie Speaks and Spoken Four made it an easy decision to introduce Final Say, the latest addition to the Maggie Speaks family, to the public for the 2007-08 season.

Final Say is comprised of four of Chicago’s top musicians. The band was designed to completely mirror Maggie Speaks’ stage show, musical repertoire, energy and look. Final Say delivers their performance with the same impeccable customer service that has become a trademark of Maggie Speaks in the music industry.

For years, no other band was able to recreate the full rich sound, tight grooves, seamless harmonies, non-stop high energy shows and unmatched professionalism that Maggie Speaks delivered to their clients. Now with the advent of Final Say, clients have another great option to deliver a musical repertoire that extends from the beginning of rock & roll, through today’s hit music. Whether it is alternative, classic rock, soul, Motown, New Wave, Big Hair Rock, R&B, the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s. Final Say delivers the right music for any occasion. Let Final Say make your next event a hit!

7th Heaven - June 24
Lifelong friends committed to leaving it all out on the stage, NTD Records recording artists 7th Heaven boasts these and other incredible accomplishments. The band has set attendance records at major night clubs across the tri-state region. Record sales nearing 30,000 units sold and digital offerings are available on iTUNES, Amazon, and such.

This is the premier Chicago festival act according to prominent talent buyers in Illinois. The critically acclaimed website “Barstar” refers to 7th Heaven as one of the 3 best bands in Chicago. (They couldn’t or wouldn’t pick just one.) 30 songs in 30 minutes. Believe it can’t be done? WATCH! Dead on renditions of Def Lepard, The Beatles, Bon Jovi, Journey and even U2 are delivered at a frenetic pace driving audiences to literally be dancing in the streets.
