CRISP
CRISP
CRISP's humble beginning's date back to August of 2013, when Elburn, IL native Kevin McMahon (bass player/band leader/composer and arranger) moved back to Illinois after a living in New Orleans for the previous five years. Upon his return to the Chicagoland area, he had a goal in mind; to assemble a band of like minded, talented musicians to compose and preform original Funk/Jazz/Fusion music, in a time when DJ's and tribute bands rule the landscape of modern nightlife entertainment. Kevin is honored to have secured the talents of Stewart Ream: Keyboards/Vocals, Constantine Alexander: Trumpet, Ian Letts: Saxophones, Joel Ream: Guitar/Vocals, Jerry Williams: Saxophones, and Greg Essig: Drums, to CRISP's line up of sensational musicians. Over time, CRISP has come to embody Fusion driven composition with open improvisation. Or as we prefer, PROGRESSIVE FUNK with WEIRD LYRICS...ENJOY
The Runaway Five
The Runaway Five
The Runaway Five are a band born in the desert and living in the city of Chicago. A love of loud guitars, square wave synth leads, and impressive video game collections brought these kids together. They play sci-fi music. The R5 blend consists of guitar-driven rock, Nintendo Gameboys, and hook-filled dance music– the kind of music someone in an 80s movie might have imagined people would listen to in the future. Influenced by The Talking Heads, The Cars, and 8-bit battle music, The Runaway Five many recordings available at music.therunawayfive.com!
