After Brunch Bash with The Teflons and Sunnyside Up
The 11th annual After Brunch Bash is a family event featuring music by The Teflons (swing and country) and Sunnyside Up (bluegrass). The event culminates in a family barn dance fueled by both bands. It's a high energy blast sure to get people of all ages out onto the dance floor. Food will be available for purchase from Capri right next door to FitzGerald's. Doors open at 12:15 pm.
Adult tickets are on sale at the club and TicketWeb; for children just pay at the door.
THE TEFLONS: Country, doo-wop, swing, Hawaiian and rare originals from three powerful-voiced females and three guys. Welcome to the Teflons! The band members hail from theatre productions, jug bands, jazz combos, and operettas for a knock-your-socks-off composite sound that’s been heard onstage at Chicago’s Millennium Park and at festivals and clubs across the Midwest. Stir it up with Barbara Silverman's striking vocals and sock rhythm guitar, Gail Tyler's clear voice and vintage ukulele and Eugenia Elliott's rich resonance and delicious honky tonk yodel. Add the haunting fiddle of Rick Veras (who appeared with Patsy Montana and Rocky Stone) and the incredible dobro and mandolin talent of Stevie Doyle (of Hoyle Brothers fame) and the Teflons create a musical gumbo that's zingy and contagious. http://www.silverbeammusic.com/index.html
SUNNYSIDE UP: "Chicago’s Sunnyside Up makes the sounds of bluegrass its own. Audiences are quick to move to the beat of an uplifting performance, and Sunnyside Up delivers. The melodious sounds of this four-piece band can change the way you think of bluegrass music. Aficionados and newbies alike love the Sunnyside Up’s approach to the beloved style of bluegrass music." - CBS Chicago, Best of Chicago
