McLovins specialize in the creation of dynamic and improvised sound, influenced by the members’ disparate and eclectic music influences. The band consists of Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger and Atticus Kelly.
These early twenty-year-olds embrace simultaneous and intricate improvisation with a more versatile front line in which all members are singing in four-part harmony, writing lyrics and music, as well as expounding on one another’s musical ideas. Set list segues and fiery improvisations are a staple of the band’s performances, keeping their audience always guessing what’s coming next and wanting more.
In the short time McLovins have been performing together, they have been invited to appear at an impressive number of well-established, as well as many new music festivals, and some of the most well respected venues in the North East. These guys are constantly writing and playing music, to continue to build on their own foundation, towards a long career of original rock music to their growing fan base.
IndigoSun’s continuing mission is to manifest healing music that speaks of transcendence, self-evolution, and the limitless power of Love. Through the medium of dance-inciting grooves, soulful vocals, and raw analog energy, we take you out of the ordinary and into a world where dreams and reality merge into one.
We are a Chicago-based group with a deep admiration for past masters, a tenacious passion for the sounds of the future, and an avid dedication to spreading a message of positivity. Since forming in late 2009, the band has traversed a considerable amount of ground, releasing 2 studio albums and numerous live compilations, with another double-disc studio album currently in production; playing in more than 15 states throughout the US; and appearing at many of the Midwest’s premier music festivals, including North Coast, Summer Camp, Rootwire, The Werk Out, and many more.
In September of 2014 singer Elli Sutter joined the band, bringing a new dimension to the IndigoSound and giving the band’s message a beautiful and powerful voice with which to shine forth. The music remains as diverse as ever, with the live show taking the audience on a wild, high-energy journey through a multitude of styles, all of which are drenched in harmonies and soundscapes inspired by the outer reaches of the galaxy and that speak of the Beyond. An IndigoSun show is sure to make your body move and uplift your spirit!

Chicago’s electronic rock stalwarts Future Rock continue to pound out pulsating beats with the verocity of a 70′s era rock band. Outside of hometown Chicago, they may be best known for high profile and excellent remixes of Daft Punk, Neon Indian, Black Moth Super Rainbow and DFA 1979. Back home they are justly celebrated for legendary performances such as their set at Wicker Park Fest that turned the entire neighborhood into a vast and energized dance floor, forcing even the palest and most resolutely hard-to-impress hipsters to call up their inner dance monsters. Live performances combine loops, samples and Mickey Kellerman’s keyboards with Darren Heitz’s drums plus Felix Moreno’s Larry Graham-style bass slapping to create an enormously powerful groove. Their light show is as good as their music, and their set have been known to inspire dance frenzies.
