A Benton Harbor Lunchbox is amateur-radio parlance for a transmitter/receiver made by the Heathkit Co. of Benton Harbor, MI, in the early 1960s. Brilliant in its simplicity, intuitive, and fully functional, it harnesses the power of the airwaves to bring all the lonesome souls together.
Inspired by the rudimentary technology that is their namesake, this Chicago-based group makes music with a similar purpose: To transmit and receive the collective consciousness … sometimes emotionally, sometimes cerebrally, and sometimes viscerally, like a kick to the crotch. Their literate, unpretentious, and undomesticated homage to the American underground speaks for itself--and hopefully to you.
--Andy Seagram is a singer-songwriter, luftmensch, and general malcontent. He played music and worked in record stores in Los Angeles for a number of years before moving to Chicago and forming this band.
--Drew Weir is a guitar player and sound engineer/producer (w/ Vagabond Audio in Chicago). Previously, he has performed w/ The Rolls and Three on the Tree.
--Bassist Mike Lahart has been in numerous bands in and around the Chicago area since he was knee-high to a grasshopper. Mike is an accomplished and diverse bass player--better than most really.
--Drummer Tom Sorich has played with more groups than you can shake a stick at, from any number of singer-songwriters, to a Zydeco band, to his own jazz trio. He has also been a long-time drum/percussion instructor at Chicago's famous Old Town School of Folk Music.
