THE IKE REILLY ASSASSINATION
Libertyville, IL-native Ike Reilly is one of America’s best contemporary songwriters. The former gravedigger and hotel doorman made his major label debut in 2001 with the Universal release of the stunning Salesmen and Racists. He has recently completed his seventh studio recording, Born On Fire, and his live performances both as a solo performer and as the leader of the ferocious Ike Reilly Assassination have garnered him a cult following and high praise from critics. David Carr of the New York Times said, “Ike Reilly is a kind of natural resource, mined from the bedrock of music.
JACKSON AND THE ROOSTERS
The music of Jackson and the Roosters can be described in one word; infectious. The high-energy Americana group has been playing based out of Minneapolis for two years and is set to release their second album later this summer. Music from Jackson and The Rooster’s debut album has been featured on national radio stations in both Minneapolis, MN and Denver, CO. Great songwriting provides the backbone of what makes the highly-talented group so intriguing, but the groups high-energy performances are what make each live show an unforgettable experience.
