4-06-14 PFM Staff Pick

This is a band that I got turned onto years ago and they are honestly one of THE best progressive rock bands to come out of Europe! Glad they can finally play the states after all these years and only at Reggies!!!!! PFM introduced new sounds, such as the synthesizer, to the Italian musical world. They were also among the first to combine symphonic classical and traditional Italian musical influences in a pop music context. Such innovations and their longevity…

Met J.R.”Bob” Dobbs, He told them to come back in semi-human form in 1998 and destroy the PINKS and NORMALS with AMINO-RAWK. That’s what they did for 14 years.

Before There Was Punk, There Was a Band Called Death

  (December 4th, 2013 Chicago, IL) – Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols, or even The Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early 70’s formed a punk band in their spare bedroom during the era of Motown and Disco. Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now receiving their long over due recognition as true rock pioneers. Death will be bringing their iconic sound to Reggies Rock Club,…

Staff Pick: Last False Hope in The Rock Club on 11/16/13

Last False Hope first gives me the feeling that I’ve heard this all before, until I get drawn in deeper by their irresistable sound. It’s the blend of genres in each song and quality of musicianship that just won’t let me tune out. Folk-Punk? Death-Country? Whatever you call it, it’s loud and it’s fresh. LFH could be on the verge of hitting it huge! Tune them in on the Reggies site then head down to the Rock Club to hear…

10-31-13 Staff Pick “Classic Album Night”

The soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever AND Michael Jackson’s Thriller all on the same Classic Albums night? Are you kidding me? I’m in heaven. You could easily say each of these albums defined the pop music of their decade. Saturday Night Fever brought ‘disco fever’ to the masses in the late 70′s and catapulted John Travolta from Mr. Kotter’s classroom onto the big screen to stay. The music will forever be what you think of first when you think of…
