This Must Be The Band is a Talking Heads Tribute Band; only playing Talking Heads music, and if possible, 3 to 4 hours at a time. Since forming in May 2007, TMBTB has been Burning Down The House throughout Chicago, the Midwest, and now east to New York and west to San Francisco. They take on the complete persona of the band and the lead singer Charlie Otto has been called, “the illegitimate son of David Byrne.” They are equipped with their very own Tine Weymouth (Jamie Jay), Bernie Worrell (Matt Gunsaulus), Adrian Belew (Otto) and Ednah Holt (Kasey Foster). The shows come to life with the popular songs Take Me to the River, Burning Down the House, This Must Be the Place, and many other funky-dance Talking Heads hits. Put your dance shoes on and get ready to boogie the night away!

Sun Stereo

Sun Stereo is a 6 piece band hailing from Urbana, Illinois, consisting of o1 theatrical flunky and 5 jazz junkies. After graduating with a Musical Theater Composition degree from University of Illinois, Kelly McMorris (music, lyrics, vocals, keys) has been writing music, performing in a plethora of projects, and all the while canvassing the gutters and bowels of churches, saloons, and opera houses for the perfect concoction of thugs and miscreants to transpire his musical vision. In 2010, he reunited with Jesse Greenlee (drums, cymbals, vocals) and began fleshing out the prenatal bones of the first full length album, Rogue Satellite. After it's completion, they tapped the veins of the University of Illinois Jazz program to procure the remaining pieces (Josh Houchin, bass, vocals; Adrian Barnett, bari sax; Euan Edmonds, trombone; Kevin Bourassa, Trumpet; Jon Griffith, bari sax) and bring the album's nuances and grandiose intricacies to life on the stage.
