The Shades | 2:00pm-3:00pm & 3:30pm – 4:30pm

The Shades are a Chicago-based pop trio comprised of NBC ‘The Voice’ contestant, Andrew DeMuro, and brothers Phil and Mark Jacobson. Equipped primarily with their voices and acoustic guitars, The Shades draw on a variety of influences to create an uncommonly good blend of pop, rock, folk, and soul. Impressive arrangements, tight harmonies, and creative mashups are hallmarks of The Shades’ live act, which has reached thousands of audience members between Chicago’s City Winery, Navy Pier, and Lincoln Hall, with appearances on Windy City Live and WGN along the way.

After receiving nationwide honors when lead vocalist Andrew DeMuro landed a spot on ‘Team Adam’ in Season 11 of NBC’s ‘The Voice’, The Shades released their second major recorded effort in October 2019 – a four-song EP entitled DRAW. They have since amassed 600 followers, 7,000 monthly listeners, and over half a million collective streams on Spotify. The Shades also demonstrate a commitment to making an impact off the stage and in Chicago’s underserved communities through their work with Guitars Over Guns, a music education nonprofit with a mentoring focus.
