The Hue

BandRockJam The Hue is the next truly original rock group coming out of Chicago. Our tunes speak for themselves, but our emphasis in playing is on a high level communication and unique songwriting. And of course,we keep the people dancing all night long.


The Hue is a Chicago-based progressive rock quartet featuring Marcus Rezak and Jared Rabin on guitars, Geoff Shell on bass, and Brian Gilmanov on drums. These four individually accomplished musicians came together for the first time as a band in February, 2007. With an array of influences that range from jam-rock, metal and jazz to classical and bluegrass, The Hue has succeeded in creating a totally unique and original brand of electrified instrumental music in their short time together. With all four members of the band contributing to their arsenal of original material, their thunderous sound continues to evolve and grow with each show. From tight progressive rock tunes and wild dance til you drop jams to lyrical and melodious jazz pieces, and of course a healthy dose of dueling guitars, The Hue's live performances are already causing music fans in Chicago to take serious notice.

In their short time together, The Hue has played all over the Chicago scene including venues like The House of Blues, Martyrs, Kinetic Playground, and Subterranean. The band started their experience together with a two-month long stint of Wednesday nights at Chicago's famous Wise Fools Pub. They've already shared the bill with national acts including The Wood Bros, The Pnuma Trio and The Motet, and have been joined onstage by other Chicago artists including Brendan Bayliss of Umphreys McGee. The Hue is the next truly original rock band coming out the Midwest, so come check out the next show!
