We are an acoustic duo that morphs to a trio or a full 5 piece band. High on harmony, diverse, professional and polished. We play covers and original music, Adult contemporary, Rock, Jazz, Americana. We pride ourselves on being venue appropriate. We can put on one heck of a show at a volume you can still hold a conversation to. Our sound system is a state of the art Bose system which is clear yet unobtrusive when need be. Yet we can rock out if you'd like as well. We are happy to let party use our mics to make announcements and speeches. With a large repertoire, we can easily adjust our sets to be quiet/mellow or upbeat and rockin. Let us handle your music needs!

Chris Sipos and Rachel Young
We're an eclectic duo that can go from gentle acoustic singer/songwriter to classic country and bluegrass, from electric blues and classic rock to jam band and classic jazz standards... almost at the a drop of a hat. Frankly, we play the music that we love regardless of whatever category it might fit into... be it original or by one of our favorite artists. Sometimes we play simply as a duo or a trio... but can just as easily turn into a tight power house of a five piece band: featuring the nimble fingers of Bill Taylor on bass, the raging harmonica of Pat Reninger and the solid grooviness of Tony Gonzales on drums. It all depends on the show and the situation. We are happy to cater to the sound needs of our clients. So please... take a listen to the sampling of music on this site. We hope you enjoy it! And if you do, please come cheer us on at one of our live shows throughout northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin and beyond! Hope to see you soon... we have a whole bunch of tunes we'd love to play for you.
