Mr. Blotto was born in Chicago as an off-night vehicle for musicians who loved each others playing but were in different bands at the time. The only rule was that they would only play what they loved. That philosophy continues today and has led Mr. Blotto into unique musical situations.
Mr. Blotto takes the Jam band asthetic into areas unfamiliar to the standard Jam Scene. They have been known to cover entire albums by Led Zeppelin and the Who as well as perform entire shows of Country and Reggae. Artists as diverse as the Grateful Dead, the Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson and The Velvet Underground have seen their material interpreted by Mr. Blotto in the 2000+ shows the band has performed in the last 15 years, yet covers only pepper the bands hefty catalog of original material stemming from five studio albums and other unreleased crowd favorites.

Bittersweet & The B-Sides

From the blacktop and concrete of Chicago’s southside comes Bittersweet & The B-Sides. Formed in 2011, this 7 piece band mixes blues, jazz, rock and pop to create a genre that is unique, original and has a style all its own. Fronted by three female vocalists and a blend of beautiful harmonies and catchy hooks, "The B-Sides" capture the attention of audiences and leave their fans screaming for more!
