    Friday, June 25

    M & R RUSH 

    It all started in high school in the early ‘70s for drummer Marty Mardirosian, bass player Roger Hirtz, keyboardist Carl Moszur, along with guitarists Paul Martin and John McFarland. Now, nearly 50 years later the quintet of musicians is still together entertaining Chicago area audiences as M&R Rush.

    Growing up in the Roseland neighborhood, like many high school musicians, they had a dream of making it big in the music business. Winning a couple local “battle of the bands,” that dream was starting to become a reality. The visibility got the group signed with VJD Associates, a Chicago-based management company who was at the time also guiding the career of Styx in their early years. Putting M&R Rush on stage as an opening act in front of 1,500-2,000 people, they soon themselves started building a following.

    MILES NIELSEN and THE RUSTED HEARTS

    Led by free-wheeling frontman Miles Nielsen, The Rusted Hearts have been wowing audiences for years with the diversity of their sound, the tightness of their 4-part harmonies, and the quality of their songcraft. Equally comfortable in a compact 3-minute pop song and an epic 10-minute jam, the band has toured incessantly since their inception in 2011, amassing an army of hardcore followers that have dubbed themselves the Rusted Herd.

    Their new album “OHBAHOY” finds the band venturing into a sphere of Americana that feels both familiar and excitingly new. Tight drums, rich guitar tones, gorgeous woodwinds, and sweeping harmonies provide the perfect complements to Nielsen’s immense storytelling gifts and impeccable vocals. The album’s name comes from an imaginary friend Nielsen had growing up, a fitting reminder as we get older to hold tightly to the noble ideals of freedom and creativity that seem so natural to us as children.

    Advance General Admission Terrace $25 (Seat provided)

    Los Perros Cubanos

    Los Perros Cubanos features the music of Cuba’s Golden Age of the 1940s and 1950s.

    Los Perros Cubanos take the influences of such Latin music immortals as Buena Vista Social Club, Beny Moré, Arsenio Rodriguez, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, and Compay Segundo, and blend jazz, blues, rock and country into the mix to create a totally unique sound.
