Brutally Frank was formed in a dirty basement with a borrowed drum set and a gallon of wine in March 2002. We play rock and roll. If you dig us tell a friend, if you don’t…fuck off.
Hitting up bars and coughing up tar, Shotgun Gambling is coming at you like that mortgage you gambled away on the roulette table. Shotgun combines the energy from a dirty punk rock basement with the atmosphere of a high class biker car. With a wide range of punk and rockabilly influences, varying from Cock Sparrer, Stray Cats, Zero Boys, and Dropkick Murphys, what may seem like just a punk rock band is more than it appears to be. Shotgun’s biggest influence is old school rock and roll, with influences like Del Shannon, Frankie Valli, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. When you go to a Shotgun Gambling show, you’ll never know what to expect, but make sure you bring your dancing shoes- and a pack of band-aids.
JOHNNY MURDER & THE 25 TO LIFE
Hailing from the Southside of Chicago, Johnny Murder & the 25 to Life have been bangin’ out shows all over the country since 2006. With songs soaked in evil oozing reverb and lyrics, they’ve created an incredibly dynamic sound that keeps people on their feet and blood-thirsty for more! Johnny Murder’s unique brand of Psychobilly takes bites out of many different genres and rolls them all into one rockin’ and wreckin’ good time!
NOTHING TO GAIN
From the fires of hell they rise with powerful guitar riffs, pounding bass lines, and intense drummming to make a permanent scar on the Chicago music scene. With influences such as The Koffin Kats, Mad Sin, Eddie Cochran, and Johnny Cash they’re not here to tell you how to dress, who to be, or what to believe in. They sing of your nightmares and quiet possibly some of your dreams. Lifes to short to worry about money, politics, and religion so fuck all of that and lets have a good time!!
