Chirp
Chirp
Based in Ann Arbor, MI, Chirp is a four-piece band that does their fair share of genre-hopping. Often playing in the styles of progressive rock/funk and jazz-fusion, their sound maintains a melodic center. The group features a wide array of originals and covers in their live sets and puts together dynamic, high-energy shows. Though their music ties in many technical elements, an equal emphasis is put on grooving and keeping people moving. Chirp takes influence from Snarky Puppy, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Yes, Daft Punk, Vulfpeck, and The Beatles to name a few.

Chirp has been hard at work since their formation in 2015, playing over 200 shows in 3 years. Their fresh sound has taken them touring across the Midwest to play a large variety of venues and festivals. In addition to several live sets from shows, Chirp has released three live-recorded EPs: "Live from Brownstown" (in-studio, 2016), "Live at Willis Sound" (in-studio, 2017), and “Live at Ann Arbor Summer Festival” (2018). All of which have been met with great reception and have helped along with live performances to build an extremely enthusiastic fan base. Chirp is Jay Frydenlund, Brian Long, Ken Ball, and John Gorine.
Splor
Splor
Chicago based prog-rock. Splor brings their own brand of eccentric music, self branded "adventure-music", to the scene. Formed originally as a suburban garage band, Splor has expanded their horizons to sploring every avenue of music they can wrap their minds' around. 1 parts shred, 2 parts prog, a hint of improv, garnish with gnar. The perfect splor.
