Chicago 6 - Chevrolet Dealers' Display
When the band played its first show, on Dec. 10, 1987, the Chicago 6 consisted of three Bears — Dan Hampton, Walter Payton and Dave Duerson — and three Chicago Blackhawks - Troy Murray, Gary Nylund and Curt Fraser.
Hampton played bass, Payton was on drums, Fraser and Nylund played guitar, Duerson played horns and Murray was on saxophone. They shared singing duties and covered a number of different rock artists. The band played on and off during the offseason for the next couple of years, during which time Wilson replaced Murray on sax.
These days, Hampton recruits former Bears Otis Wilson and Steve McMichael, along with four other musicians to make a seven-piece band. Hampton said audience members can expect Wilson to sing some Motown hits from the Temptations and Smokey Robinson, and McMichael to sing some Hank Williams Jr. and ZZ Top songs. Hampton said he'll be singing some Eddie Money and John Mellencamp tunes.
"I’ve never met an athlete that didn't want to be a rock star or a movie star," Hampton said. "And I’ve never met a movie star that didn’t want to be an athlete. We’re going to have fun and we’ll be prepared and have a lot of good music."

Andra Day - LEXUS Display
Take one look at Andra Day, with her saucy rockabilly-inspired look (she routinely rocks a bouffant and red-stained lip) and you know you’re in the presence of a unique individual. The San Diego-bred singer and songwriter’s eye-catching personal style complements her brassy, yet alluring voice, as well as her music, which is both groovy and bluesy. “I call it retro-pop-soul,” she says. “It’s a blend of jazz, soul, doo-wop, plus a little bit of rock, and a little bit of hip-hop on the underbelly.”
