Band Blues Rock






Sitticus, a blues-influenced trio from Aurora, shares its name with a genus in the Salticidae family — more commonly known as the jumping spider. At first the name comes across as a throwaway, but toward the close of "Exit" (streaming free at myspace.com/sitticusband), the trio weaves together intricate guitar patterns that even fictional arachnid Charlotte (of "Charlotte's Web" fame) would admire. And while some of the group's lyrics can be a bit cliche ("The time of your life is now"), there's enough going on here musically to make this young crew one worth keeping an eye on. - Chicago Tribune

"Around Hear"

Sitticus is a capable blues/jam rock band that shows its chops on a 10-song self-titled CD. “Haven’t Done A Thing To You” is classic blues — no frills. “Railroad Tracks” adds funk to the formula, and “We’ll Feel It All Soon” slows down the tempo a tad for a Black Crowes sound. “We Retread” is the least derivative, and therefore most original-sounding track, with pulsating guitar effects and introspective lyrics.

-The Heavy Chevy EP (Fall 2012)



Jake Mack and The Last Stand was founded on a sleepy day in mid-October, 2011, and has quickly grown into one of the hardest working blues and blues-based rock bands in Chicagoland.

Nasty, heavy blues is the tap root for this face-melting quartet. Be it one of the band's ripping, hell-raising originals, or an old-school cover, you're sure to be enthralled with top-notch vocals, killer musicianship, and their veteran-style stagecraft. Jake Mack and The Last Stand has even the most fickle music fans begging for more.
