We dig great sax as much as anyone! Have you heard The Heard?
The Heard is a Chicago-based band venerated for its deep pocket, authentic grooves and reverence for legendary funk. The group is known for turning out hot, sweat-drenched sets that stretch into the wee hours every Thursday night at live music Mecca aliveOne, 2683 N Halsted Street in Chicago.
The Heard has played Chicago's top venues, including Metro and Lincoln Hall, and backed former Galactic vocalist Theryl "Houseman" DeClouet. They have shared the stage with national acts Dumpstaphunk, Dragon Smoke, The Mike Dillon Band, Passafire, and The Lee Boys, as well as fellow Chicago bands Sidewalk Chalk and Cole DeGenova & The People's Republic.
The Heard's music features powerful horn melodies delivered with precision and swagger by Adam Gross (trombone) and Lucas Ellman (saxophone), the driving and funky chicken-scratch rhythm guitar playing of Taras Horalewskyj, burning keyboard work by Adam Tierney, and a slamming, lock-step rhythm section comprised of bassist Mike Starr and drummer Reid Muchow.
The Heard plays Alive One every Thursday night at 10PM and will be at The Abbey Pub on Saturday, March 9 for the Summer Camp Music Festival 2013 ON THE ROAD TOUR.
