Chicago’s Penthouse Sweets play rock music forever and ever — but officially since 2002. A flower in the dirt of the Chicago music scene, we have nearly 100 years of combined rock ‘n’ roll experi-ence. We do country-rock, psych-rock, love-rock, hate-rock, regu-lar-rock...and rock. There are four of us: Andy (singing/guitar), Lou (guitar/singing), Eric (bass), and Adam (drums).
Songs on Lutz's debut album, "How Do You Feel?" (available at CD Baby, iTunes, and Amazon) range from sweet and mournful to raucous all-out blitzy. With Chicago Americana outfit Riviera, Josh Boisvert played all over the mid-west where Riviera opened for Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar, among others. After Riviera, Josh’s songwriting took on a new life in Lutz, the power-house three piece that's always lived in the back of his mind.
The Black Tape has been gaining fans across Chicago and the world with their unique mix of sixties influenced rock, Motown sound and power-pop flare. Brooklyn native Rashid Lamarre (guitar, vocals) began The Black Tape as a way to bring new life to musical influences of the past while adding a modern kick to the mix. With the addition of U.P. transplant Ryan Staples on bass, and Iowa born powerhouse drummer Nic Dell, the band’s sound has come together in what continues to be a series of addictive catchy songs that people are happy to have stuck in their heads. As a reviewer from The UnCool.com wrote, The Black Tape is “delivering music that is as accessible as a high-five, as bright as the sunlight reflecting off of rolling waves." The Black Tape is eager to keep the waves rolling as they continue to make their mark in Chicago and beyond.
