Martini Lunch Live

Join us on Saturday December 16th for a night of tunes in the vintage stylings of Martini Lunch! They'll be playing everything from Queen, Sinatra, Ray Charles and much more! No Cover!

\Martini Lunch
Flash back to the early sixties when the Mad Men execs went out for a classy Martini Lunch accompanied by the sounds of Sinatra, Bobby Darin and company. Besides providing cool backgrounds or hot swings, Martini Lunch also puts their signature spin on soul, blues and pop tunes that fit that classic vibes.

Sincere Engineer is Deanna Belos with an acoustic guitar. Her dark and introspective songwriting clashes with the fact that she's a vibrant lil goofball in real life, yet somehow she maintains her ability to be authentic, charming, and...*ahem* sincere. It seems as though maybe she picks up more than she lets on. Or, maybe she's just always thinking about corn dogs. Who knows?

The Corey Dennison Band LIVE

19417605_1357124647674898_971642900991962933_o (1).jpg

Join us on Friday Dec 8th as we welcome back The Corey Dennison Band to our Hammond Brewpub! We've had them rock the house before and they never fail to impress! They will be pumping out the blues from 7-10 PM NO COVER!!!
-----
Formed in 2013, The Corey Dennison Band has become a favorite attraction at Chicago blues venues, including twice-weekly appearances at Kingston Mines. Led by Corey Dennison’s soulful voice and muscular guitar, the band released its self-titled studio debut for the legendary Delmark Records in 2016 after honing 13 original songs night after night on the bandstand. Corey’s decade-long stint with Carl Weathersby and Gerry Hundt’s tenure with Nick Moss are evident on the disc but blend effortlessly into a dynamic new Chicago sound, anchored by Aaron Whittier and drummer Joel Baer. Critics and radio polls responded favorably as the album garnered glowing reviews and constant worldwide airplay, netting chart positions on the Roots Music and Living Blues Radio Reports. Nominations followed suit, with a nod for Best Emerging Artist from the Blues Music Awards, a pair from Blues Blast Magazine, and Grammy balloting. Late 2017, further momentum accrued with their second Delmark release, Night After Night, complete with original material and select covers. The strength of the band’s repertoire is matched only by the charisma of the stage show; it’s not uncommon to see Corey belting out the blues, unamplified, in the heart of the audience while the band steps in time to the groove. It’s not novelty for these musicians and entertainers, however, it’s exactly where they want to be.

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.

\\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.

Drink and Draw

NWI, the Region, and the Chicagoland area is home to a huge creative community. We'd like to invite the creatives, and the community out for our Drink and Draw event. 

18th Street's Drink and Draw is a fun way for creatives to get out of the house, show their work, meet other artists and fans, and become acquainted with possible buyers in an open and unbiased environment. 

-How does it work for artists? 
Do you like to draw, or paint, or decoupage? Come in and make some art while enjoying great beer (or craft cocktails, or soda or water). If you would like, hang what you have created on our display wall to show and sell during the event- there is no commission- you keep all money from the sale. It is a great way to show your work to a whole new audience, gain some new fans, and maybe make some money. 

Have premade work? Bring it in a portfolio to show off. We want to keep the display wall open for art that is made at the Drink & Draw. Also make sure to bring business cards to hand out to anyone interested in your work. 

If you want to just come in and enjoy a beer and sketch- then hell yeah, we'd love to have ya. 

There is no sign up, no paperwork, no fees, no jury, just show up and do your thing. 

-How does it work for the public?
Come in and see art being created right before your eyes. If you see something you like you can talk directly with the artist about purchasing it on the spot. Or, maybe you have been wanting a piece of art for your living room- now you have a room full of artists that you can talk to about what you would like. 

Sounds great, right? It's because it is!
