Joe Stamm Band
February 13th, 2015
Stamm began performing in dive bars, for free, with nothing but his acoustic guitar in 2007. These days, venues don’t mind sending him, and the 5-piece band he formed, a few bucks to play. The Joe Stamm Band – consisting of Dan Greuter on lead guitar, Jon Byler Dann on bass and background vocals, Cory Petty on guitar and Michael “Iggy” Dickson on drums - continues to extend their reach and fan-base, having released a music video to national TV and anticipating an album release sometime in 2015. Has the Joe Stamm Band “made it”? – “No,” Stamm answers, “and what does even mean? I’m not concerned with ‘making it’ or topping any charts or moving to Nashville. We just want to make the best music we possibly can, inspiring and entertaining the people around us right now. If we keep doing it right, the people who identify with us and our music will continue to grow in number and enthusiasm. That’s our goal. That’s what we want. We started this thing in the grassroots of central Illinois. And we plan to stay firmly rooted. Roots and growth are dependent on one another. We trust our fans will keep us centered on both.”

Chris Bandi
February 24th, 2015
Raised on country and rock n roll, Chris’ love for music began at a young age. Whether it was in his dad’s car or in his family’s living room, Chris would sing everything from Elvis and Garth Brooks to Bruce Springsteen and Cat Stevens.

In high school Chris joined a band in St. Louis, Missouri. They became rather famous around the area winning several Battle of the Bands and opening for national touring acts. After high school Chris dropped the music to focus on college. Around a year ago, Chris picked up his guitar after a three-year hiatus and started singing again – this time country and southern rock. A few short months after he started playing again, he had the opportunity to audition for American Idol! Validating that he can sing, he made it through the auditions and to Hollywood week! Now Chris wants to keep things going with his music.

Though country is what he sings today, he appreciates all genres of music.

Recently, Chris was introduced to a great producer out of Nashville. The two started collaborating on a demo CD of several of his original songs and expect it to be complete sometime this summer.
