The Nick Pontarelli Band has made their mark on the Chicago music scene with a fresh take on all of the greats, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Frankie Valli, Bobby Darin, Elvis, Neil Diamond and many more.
There is something in the air. ahhhh, it’s in the wind. Chicago Wind! Two of Chicago’s most powerful Blues artists, Deitra Farr and Matthew Skoller have joined forces along with their all-star band to create one of the most exciting and original blues events in recent history.
Nicholas’s soul grabbing voice, dynamic guitar and heartfelt lyrics are driven forward with Larry’s melodic, supportive drumming and Fred’s groove making, funky sousaphone. The Strapping Owls are a bluesy power trio for the ages, who meld influence and improvisation into soulful original music, raucous interpretations of traditional tunes, & inspired, spontaneously composed jams.
This free, all ages concert is presented as part of Live on the Lake!, Navy Pier’s free summer music series in the Miller Lite Beer Garden.
