\\Soda Gardocki//
Tom “Soda” Gardocki spent years playing guitar in SoCal rockers Wax (go rewatch the credits of Mallrats; the band plays right after its pals Weezer) but more recently he’s devoted himself to more rustic purposes.

\\Adam Lee//
A former honky tonk acolyte, Adam Lee’s newest writing turns traditionalism on its head. It’s a varied and engaging collection, criss-crossing genre and influence and bringing to mind artists such as Cory Branan, Justin Townes Earle, or John Moreland.

Gerry Hundt LIVE

This Saturday come in to the Miller Taproom, enjoy a pint and groove to some awesome blues tunes by one-man-band, Gerry Hundt!
---
Fusing together decades of American Roots Music with a sense of humor and adventure , Gerry Hundt creates transcendent original music and breathes new life into classic genres. His one-man show translates seamlessly into the band format with the aid of a patented hands-free harmonica rig, expanding the sonic palette of the power trio. Deft, tasteful guitar licks intertwine with primal rhythms and swaggering harmonica riffs punctuate sophisticated harmonies, all melting together to create an undeniable groove in any setting.

Burn Rebuild Burn Rebuild is a punk rock band from Chicago started by guitarist Brian Hampson and lead singer/bassist, Franky Tsoukalas. In 2013, the guys started up to relieve the stress of college while they both pursued degrees in their 30's at UIC. The main goal of the band is to play and write as much as adult life allows. Though the band has had many...many member changes, all members that have come and gone in Burn Rebuild have always been friends of the band. Now with a solidified lineup and their EP Losing Grip, the guys are looking to bring their take on punk to the streets of Chicago.

MG Bailey LIVE

He's played our Miller Taproom, now come in Saturday, November 25th and enjoy MG Bailey as he brings his unique one-man band to our Hammond Brewpub! No cover!

\MG Bailey/
Using guitars modified with drum triggers, keyboards, as well as live drums that he plays while he strums his six string and sings, it’s an unorthodox method but a sight to see!
