February 8, 2020 @ 9:00 pm to February 9, 2020 @ 2:00 am
Since their inception in Spring of 2015, Mungion (pronounced mung-yin) is quickly becoming known for their undeniably explosive and charismatic live shows. The Chicago-based four-piece is rooted in their ambitious compositions and improvisational ability. Drawing inspiration from a wide array of musical styles, they create a raucous, yet jubilant sound all of their own.
Known for their whimsical songs and goofy stage antics, Mungion’s joyous presence is a natural extension of its members, making for live performances that are infectiously lighthearted and deeply sincere. However, underlying the band’s quirky nature is a tremendous amount of virtuosity across all of its members. Combined, this talent and playfulness emboldens the group to be fearless in the studio and on stage. Mungion is guaranteed to have you smiling ear to ear and leaving wanting more.
Craig Brodhead’s Headband is a Northeast based ensemble specializing in varying styles of improvisational music. Fronted by Turkuaz guitarist Craig Brodhead, it features a varied and rotating cast of musicians. This incarnation features Michelangelo Carubba (Turkuaz), Chuck Jones (Dopapod) and Nick Gerlach (Michael Menert). The group specializes in re-imagining familiar music through an improvisational lens as well as unearthing forgotten gems from classic jazz and funk records from bygone eras and then rounded out by Brodhead’s eclectic original compositions. With its deep bench of music school sticklers and Funk scene ringers The Headband is equally at home in an intimate jazz club or a Halloween house party kegger and anywhere in between.
