OVERVIEW

Bringing a little bit of the Big Easy to Brew City, Sweet Sheiks is a toe-tapping group inspired by the popular music of the teens, twenties, and thirties. Led by the vintage vocals of Jen Müttin-Schrank  (guitar/saw/washboard), this violin (Ousia Lydian), banjo (Garrett Burton), clarinet (Andrew Spadafora), and tuba (Aaron Johnson) lineup brings a modern flair to early jazz, blues, and Americana classics. Sweet Sheiks’ acoustic stylings are compelling, diverting, and “refreshingly vintage.”

 

Perfectly combining original jazz music with Chicago swagger, BakerzMillion is an all-star jazz sextet in the tradition of the classic Blue Note groups of the 1960s. Featuring Victor Garcia (trumpet), Jim Gailloreto (saxophones), Tim Davis (drums), and Matt Ferguson (bass), the band was formed in 2005 to perform original compositions by co-leaders Andy Baker (trombone) and Steve Million (piano). Since then, the band has been playing all over Chicagoland in concert halls, universities and clubs. Their first recording, “Mood Point” was released in 2012 to widespread critical acclaim. Their music channels the message of jazz past and present.
