The Geneva Convention is a Chicago-based band playing good time music with a feel for the blues. Powered by the dynamic singing and irresistible stage presence of vocalist Geneva Norman, this Chicago-based 6-piece always rocks the house.
Featuring sounds from Maxwell Street and the Chicago Gin Halls to the Mississippi Delta, as well as original tunes reflecting more modern blues cross-over sounds.

Bubbles Brown is a two-piece early blues outfit from Chicago, IL. Bubbles (Guitar, Vocals) and Washboard Ben (Percussion, Vocals) cut their teeth on the blues deep in the subways of Chicago, busking for change and the occasional dollar. Using only a guitar, harmonica, washboard, sock cymbal, assorted percussion and a suitcase bass drum
-the duo and their lean, archaic setup evoke the homespun, kitchen-sink aesthetic of rural, pre-war blues and country, while blending into it an aggressive and modern electricity to create a sound at-once both nostalgic and distinctly progressive. The Bubbles Brown sound defies expectations, and their rich and reverent brand of the blues, country and jazz of the 20s and 30s greatly exceeds the sum of its parts, transforming stages of any size into roadside juke joints and skeptics into believers.
