Expo '76 (SideBar)
EXPO 76 is sponsored by Brickstone Brewery, Bourbonnais IL. $5 pints every time Expo plays!
Expo ‘76 & the Total Pro Horns is made up of five Chicago musicians, led by Dag Juhlin and backed by a fantastic horn section. The set is ever-growing and adventurous! Expo‘76 is made up of four lifers -- Dag Juhlin, Kenn Goodman, John Carpender and Ralph Baumel (Poi Dog/Phantom Helmsmen/Andre Williams) -- who don’t need to be in another band, but still can’t quite help themselves. Their weakness is your gain, and on any given night you’ll hear them gleefully careening from ‘70s AM radio ear candy into walloping road house beer guzzling dance tunes; they’ll chime their way through a New Wave nugget with the same exuberance that they slap around a swinging, jazzy blues number or a folk revival sing-along. Irrepressible, unstoppable, 100% unironic, and actually quite unbelievable at times, Expo‘76 won’t take your requests, because they’re already playing them. But you can still shout them out. http://expo76.com
