I am so excited for this one, Chicago. My jazz-fusion band, Kick the Cat is back and better than ever for a party at Martyrs’ (3855 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60613) on Wednesday, August 7. You do not want to miss this!

Kick The Cat features Chris Siebold, Vijay Tellis-Nayak, Chris Clemente and myself. Kick the Cat is Chicago's most highly acclaimed fusion ensemble. Since forming in 1996, Kick the Cat has been wowing audiences with their high energy shows. Their compositions are grounded in the traditions of jazz, rock, and funk and feature complex harmony, odd time signatures, and extended improvisations. The group's spontaneity and uncanny communication make each of their live performances a unique adventure in interactive music-making.

Martyrs' | Wednesday, August 7, 2019 | 7pm Doors / 8pm Show / $12 / 21+

We’ve got a killer lineup, with Dan Bitney & Leroy Bach warming things up.

Dan Bitney works within avant-garde electronic, rock and improvisational groups, most notably Tortoise, Isotope 217 and Spectralina. LeRoy Bach is a Grammy-winning artist, former member of Wilco, and former member of the Black Monks of Mississippi with Theaster Gates. With their Roland 303 bass monster, Dan and LeRoy perform rockin, swingin, catchy tunes, backed up with plentiful improvisations.
