Sugar Free Guns is a synth / guitar driven rock quintet from Chicago. In each song they write, they hold themselves to one standard: if it’s not hooky, it dies. Since 2015 they’ve released 3 EPs, each full of soaring melodies that will stick with you for days and played on coveted stages, such as the Metro and the House of Blues. They are in the process of writing their next EP, slated for release in mid 2018.

Danger Pony is an eight piece band from Chicago. We play Doo-wop SoulFolk. The band is comprised of three female back up singers, a trumpet, drums, bass and two guitars.
