"The Breakfast"

Chicago Green makes you realize why musicians are still needed. Drawing from all the good influences and expressing themselves at the same time they bring a serious attitude while keeping the music fun. Expect Rock, expect funk, expect good music. - Tim Palmieri

"Reggie's Rock Club"

Chicago Green is an amazing arrangement of young talent from the outskirts of Chicago! Playing with enthusiasm and passion is the driving force behind what will be a long successful music career. The bands key is its diversity in styles running the gambit from jam to classic rock to reggae to metal this band does everything it does top notch making all genres proud!! Listening to their recordings definitely does not do this band justice. Their live shows are what make these guys tick, firing on all cylinders and always striving to get better with each performance. - Robert Glick (Owner)


Under a Certain Influence, released January 2008



Formed in early 2006 as a means of playing some damn good music, Chicago Green came onto the Chicago music scene hungry to play and perform live. Originally formed by guitarist Jon Gould and drummer Neal Daniels, the duo needed to find a slick bass player, offering the position to long time partner in crime, Max Benson. Although the trio worked well it was not until help was enlisted by Nick "J.J. Johnson" Eisner on guitar/keys/vocs that the band started to come together.

After a few shows and a lot of debate, vocalist/percussionist Josh Kapson was also added, completing an all-star line-up. With their release of their first EP titled Under a Cetain Influence, Chicago Green played high prestige shows such as opening for Les Claypool at the Rave in Milwaukee, WI, and headlining the annual Rock Against AIDS concert at Illinois State University for their release party.

The early live experience of Chicago Green attracted a lot of attention, and gained the group a lot of ground in the local music scene. Although the creative energy and vibe brought recognition on it's own, Chicago Green was intent on delivering a higher caliber of performance to the fans, and in realizing so, Josh Kapson left to pursue other musical interests.

As of 2008 Chicago Green has expanded it's fanbase, playing around Chicago at venues such as The Elbo Room, Mickey Finns, and The Heartland Cafe, while maintaining a regular showing at Reggie's Music Joint and Rock Club. Recently Chicago Green began work with The Belmont Sessions on showcasing top CG tunes for the fans in a recorded concert experience. Opting to further hone their live skills and peformance, Chicago Green has cleared all 2008 performances to search for a new singer, write new material, and emerge in 2009 focused, and ready to perform on a greater scale.
