I have always regretted giving up playing guitar when I was a teenager. When my teenage son started playing bass in his schools jazz band I was motivated to see if I could play again. I struggling for months attempting to use the internet and learn on my own before meeting Ken Fought while he was playing at a friends wedding. I was so impressed with his artistry with the guitar that I scheduled lessons for both my son and I. Ken has helped rekindle my passion for music and continues to work with me in improving my skill and confidence in playing my guitar.

The EcoLimes are great musicians. They have a fun sound with lots of interesting mash-ups of popular songs. They were easy to book, showed up on time and took care of their own set-up and tear-down. They took longer breaks than agreed upon.

This was the best decision we could have made regarding our reception! They were amazing, better than we even hoped. We highly recommend hiring this band for any event where you want to have great music and tons of fun! All our guests were so impressed... one kept saying they would listen and forget it was band for a moment the songs sounded so perfect. Everyone will always remember the band at our reception!!

My husband & I had the band Jerry & Nora with the Revue play at our 80th Birthday party.The members of the band radiated good times. They played a variety of tunes, very good. It was just fun, fun & more fun. They are one of the best bands around. We go to see them every chance we get.

My family has hired Sipos & Young for a wedding reception and a celebration of life gathering. Rachel and Chris are fantastic musicians and their song catalogue is deep. They also asked on both occasions if there were any particular songs the family wanted to hear. They set the tone perfectly for each event as diverse as they were and really added something special.

We couldn't be more pleased with Command Performance. They are a first class group. Their vocalists are a perfect compliment to the big band sound. We will definitely use them next year at the WW-2 Reenactment. My only complaint is that the 3 hours they played went too quickly.

The band was awesome. Played a mix of Motown and rock n roll for my wedding. To my surprise the dance floor was full all night. I would hire them again in a flash.

About

Johnsburg Jimmy Murphy comes from a long line of musical talent,starting from his younger days watching his father Walter play upright bass in a succesful Jazz trio.He was hooked right from the start and began fumbling along at the age of 12.From there he moved over to guitar and made room for his younger brother Lenny to pick up the bass and follow in their dad's footsteps.That was the start of a 17 year run on the streets of Chicago,playing every club they could get their hands on .The stage named Johnsburg was added to Jimmy Murphy due to the large volume of Jimmy's on the circuit by his peers.Johnsburg is the small town from which he currently hails and has always supported.Current projects such as "Johnsburg Jimmy and Freinds: allows for a fresh set of musicians on each run of events and keeps things intersting for his followers.He continues to push the envelope and is on a constant mission to keep the family music alive.Since his brother Lenny's passing in March of 2013 he devotes all of his passion through him and for his memory.See you on the road.....Jimmy

We offer the biggest variety of live music for your event. The Brew City Big Band is a 22-piece big band that performs the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and other big band leaders and singers. We play swing, Latin, polka, and waltz music. The Brew City Big Band recreates the fabulous sounds of the '30s, '40s, and '50s. The band can break down into Big Shots and the Brew City Chasers. This 7-horn band performs rock, Latin, disco, pop, jump swing, and country from the '50s through the '80s. Looking for some dinner music? The band breaks down further into the Microbrew Combo. This group of experienced improvisers plays mellow, traditional jazz standards. Our customers are thrilled with having a full-size big band play for their event. We play many of the original arrangements of the swing band era, and this music keeps the older people staying at the event. Sometimes, our customers want to have the "party music" after the big band plays for the younger crowd. We just break down into Big Shots and the Brew City Chasers and play various music, from Bill Haley and the Comets to Donna Summer to Bon Jovi. We provide a very wide variety of music, and special requests are welcome. Don't be fooled by a small 4 or 5-piece band that says they can do Frank Sinatra. It just doesn't sound the same without that full-size big band backing the singer up.
