Fox and the Grapes is a tiro that plays original indie-folk-rock.

Michael Blumberg writes the songs, plays guitar, harmonica and sings, while Justin Voss plays the drums and Zack Friedman slaps bass.

Fox & the Grapes tries to channel (and attempts to not make carbon copies of) many of their influences - Dylan, Band, Buckley, VU, Zevon, Wilco, Van Morrison, Floyd - into soulful and melodic original tunes. The sound is original in its tone and easy to listen to, while still evoking real feelings of nostalgia, love, confusion, carelessness and thoughtful contemplation.

Live performances usually attract 40 people, depending on the night of the week and time of show. Typical concerts will include mostly original songs with a cover or two thrown in for good measure.

Michael has been playing in bands and as a solo act for about 10 years and has played as a regular in many bars in Peoria and in venues in Chicago.

Justin is a formally trained drummer and percussionist who’s roots are in Chicago and delta blues. Justin and Michael played together in a Peoria-based band called Knifey Spoony which set the Peoria scene ablaze with classic rock covers.

Zack has played guitar and bass in several gigging bands for many years and brings along with him the wisdom of the road.

Come by and see us sometime!
