Altered Stage, the only private club musicians who make a living in ways other than music, will showcase the talent of Chicago business executives at Reggie’s Music Joint. An eclectic collection of music — from folk to metal — come see real people doing what we all want to do. Rock out live. The show will feature Altered Stage member originals, recently released on the Altered Records label, as well as covers from artists as diverse as Sufjan Stevens, Tom Petty, The Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Danzig, and Helmet. Pretty much every genre will be covered by people who are rockstars in their respective careers, and come to express themselves through music. It’s as real as it gets.
Altered Stage is more than music lessons. It’s a journey, tailored to your individual musical aspirations. Through personalized music instruction and programming, Altered Stage brings guitar lessons, bass lessons, and drum lessons to life. From club-arranged gigs at known Chicago music venues, to writing and recording, to musical matchmaking, we ensure that every member is working toward the musical achievement they define. Our members are people with a passion for music, but who have chosen to pursue career paths outside of music. Business executives, scientists, bankers, brokers, and doctors. All making and playing music as an expression of their individuality and to forget about the office for a little while. Whether you’ve never held a guitar or held a drum stick, or if you played the club circuit in college, we can make music part of your every day world.
