At The Bootleg
Hailing from the suburbs of Chicago, EGi has a sound that is very difficult to describe. That sound has grown and progressed throughout the years, coinciding with the musicians themselves. This group has pushed the boundaries of classification by focusing on eloquent songwriting alongside intense instrumental compositions while leaving space for epic improvisational journeys.
A staple of EGi has always been the dual lead guitar sound (James Hernandez & Noe Perez), complimenting each other through an understood recognition of space and harmony. The rhythm section (Allan Borukhovich on bass and Drew Littell on drums) provides a driving backbone while keeping the pocket deep and funky throughout each song, stepping up to shine when the moment calls for it. EGi has vividly captured this on their two full length albums Plyatron and Vessel. Due to their steady touring and studio work, this midwest band has a fanbase that has grown to encompass the whole region and steadily spreads throughout the nation.
EGi pulls inspiration from many different sources including Jack Kerouac, Oysterhead, The Simpsons, Outkast, Phil Jackson and the '96 Chicago Bulls, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Obi-Wan Kenobe, Al Di Meola, Patton Oswalt, Led Zeppelin, Bill Burr, King Crimson, and many more.
"MONTU is an Oklahoma-based jamtronica act that’s been consistently building a name for itself in the Midwest and beyond. Based out of Norman, Oklahoma, the electronic-infused four-piece frequently takes their show on the road, having played from coast-to-coast at a number of festivals and clubs in addition to opening for the likes of scene favorites such as Umphrey’s McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Lotus, EOTO, Papadosio, The Floozies, and more. The group seamlessly fuses funk, jazz, rock, and R&B, all with the underpinning of electronic music, to create a unique sound that is wholly their own, and fans who have gotten a chance to catch the up-and-comers are left eager to hear more." - Ming Lee Newcomb, LiveForLiveMusic.com

Here we stand where vibrations fly between people sharing an experience of love and pain. Keepin' the groove true; groove with us and we'll groove for you.
There was a legendary musician who coined a term 'electric church' in reference to the live music experience. The vibrations of the electric guitars, the drums, and the speakers equating to the energy in the room. We all have an appreciation for music, the beautiful sounds that reflect our humanity. The love and pain, wrong and right, hot and cold, day and night. These sounds embody the energy of inspiration flowing naturally as the seasons. Soul, for its heart, its sweet surrender, and joy. Rock, for its raw emotion, epic heights, and foundation. Funk, for its groove, its ass shaking, and mash potatoes.
