When it comes to country music in Chicago, the six member band, Lucky Town, has the Windy City covered. The West Suburban based country band, is the combined talent of six Illinois artists, Andrew Jess, Amy Carlson and Mike Aquino on lead vocals and Matt Marvic on the drums, Chris Halla on the keyboard and Jason Trtan on the bass guitar. Many of the band’s members call Chicago suburbs like Downers Grove, Aurora and Wheaton home but their musical harmonies bring it home to Nashville.
Having opened for such acts at Chris Cagle, Bucky Covington and Hartland they’re quickly making waves as one of Chicago’s premier country bands. Their dossier of songs typically includes personalized versions of from some of today’s hottest country artists like Sugarland, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean as-well-as some of yesterday’s favorites.
You can catch Lucky Town on April 24 at Joe’s Bar as well as a host of other events around Chicaogland this summer. For more dates or to hear some of their music, visit their MySpace page.
