Chicago 6 - Chevrolet Dealers' Display

2016-Chicago-6-396

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."

THE FOUR C NOTES - Ford Display

2016-Four-C-Notes-396Pioneered and headlined by John Michael Coppola, best known for his appearance in Chicago's long running production of the Broadway smash hit JERSEY BOYS, THE FOUR C NOTES are the Midwest’s only tribute act dedicated to recreating the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

The tribute sings all of your favorite hits, including: "Sherry", "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Walk Like A Man", "Workin' My Way Back To You, (Babe)", "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You", "Let's Hang On" and many, many, more!

Four microphones, four guys in slick suits, smart choreography, and Mr. Coppola's legacy with The Four Seasons catalogue give THE FOUR C NOTES an authenticity to their performance that similar tribute groups simply cannot match...ANYWHERE!

Angie Fisher - Lexus Display

2017-A-Fisher-386-2One song. That's all it took for Hidden Beach Recordings CEO Steve McKeever, who launched the career of Grammy Award winner Jill Scott, to sign the next game-changing voice: Angie Fisher.

Music fans first heard Fisher's spellbinding voice for themselves on that song, the now Grammy nominated "I.R.S.," when it was played on Stevie Wonder's KJLH radio in Los Angeles in June of 2014. "I.R.S." embodies a subject everyone can relate to: struggling to make ends meet. But in Fisher's hands, the topic takes on a whole new meaning as her gritty, throbbing vocals wrenchingly etch the challenges many of us face on a daily basis.

Fisher honed her skillful delivery at an early age. The Pasadena, Calif. native's natural talent first came to light at the tender age of four, when she was found in the closet singing a song while trying on her mother's shoes. During a childhood influenced by such icons as Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, D'Angelo and the Clark Sisters, Fisher began singing professionally at 14. That's when she was chosen to join All God's Children, the touring children's choir created by renowned producer Lou Adler (Carole King, Sam Cooke).

Now it's Fisher's turn to step 20 feet from the background and take center stage. Currently in the studio recording her debut album, she's ready for her close-up. "I have a unique sound that makes people pay attention," declares Fisher. "And I have a story to tell."
