Followed by Chicago favorite The Congregation Band (5:30p) mixing their soulful sounds with Rock and Roll. Terrapin Flyer (7:00p) will be playing some familiar Grateful Dead tunes, getting us in the groove. Our headliner for the evening is an amazing Americana band from Bridgeport, Connecticut- The Alternate Routes (8:30).
