bq | 5:30pm - 6:30pm & 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Bassist Brian Quinn formed the Funk group bq in the Spring of 2013. After playing shows around Chicago since 2007, Brian was eager to hear more old-school Funk within the Chicago music scene. Once Brian gathered the funkiest players he knew from years of playing music around Chicago, he decided it was time to form a project designed to play the kind of raw, energetic, in-your-face Funk music that he's always loved. In July of 2013 bq played its first show, and they've been spreading the Funk around Chicago ever since.

Katie Kadan | 9:00pm - 10:10pm & 10:25pm - 11:30pm

Katie Kadan is a Chicago-based blues & soul singer/songwriter whose meteoric rise to “one-name” status was recently launched by making it to the top 4 finale and global crowd-favorite on NBC’s The Voice. Music industry luminary and coveted EGOT winner, John Legend exclaimed, “We don't deserve you, Katie...You deserve awards. You deserve more than The Voice. You deserve Grammys. Everything she sings, she makes it sound like it’s her song. She makes it sound magnificent. She’s a superstar. We’re fortunate that she’s even on our show. We don’t deserve you, Katie!” Born, raised and living in Chicago, Kadan’s epic vocal prowess is a force of nature. Her blues-infused style of soul-bearing belting is Katie’s moniker on her original and familiar songs alike, with a constant presence of her roots in the church choirs
