HighBall is a power rock with punk influences band based out of Chicago. Formed in October 1999, the trio started out in the depths of a Chicago basement. HighBall quickly began creating original songs containing lyrics from everyday life, adventures, relationships and the daily 9 to 5 grind. HighBall knew they had an edge to their music often being compared to sounds of local Chicago acts such as Screeching Weasel and The Methadones with a mix of Green Day and The Ramones. HighBall continues redefining rock music and has an onstage energy and presence that is matched only by their quick and punchy power chord sound - the style of music to which great rock legends owe their success.
Finishing School was manifested with a post-hardcore edge and the do-it-yourself punk ethic. Consisting of three friends with experience beyond their years, Finishing School is making music on their terms, the way it should be.
THRILLAGE (ex Spitalfield / Dialogue)
Its a rock three piece, Think Exit meets The Bronx...and those other bands you love.
Gunner’s Daughter began playing music that made sense to them, that had substance and would break down scene stereotypes. They began writing songs wanting to be that current band delivering music comprised of what they grew up on. They also wanted to give the younger generation a chance to become familiar with the bands that they are immediately influenced by. Gunner’s Daughter are not breaking new ground or inventing a new sound, they are simply tipping their hats to the forefathers that paved the road before them.
