Bio

Four musicians got together on the North Side of Chicago with a purpose of creating something new out of their collective inspiration and skill. With a spectrum of influences ranging from soul-stroking Blues and Jazz, to the screaming, in-your-face overdrive of the most salacious Rock ‘n’ Roll, The Outfit is an audio-visual escort service that you’ll call again and again to treat your ears right.

Lesleigh Arratia, a classical pianist from L.A. with blindingly fast fingers, has a voice like a diamond locomotive—unbelievable power that flows like a silk waterfall. She shares the microphone with Brian Weinert, a never-satisfied Blues guitarist with a soulful voice who honed his skills on the banks of the Mississippi. Albert Amey, a Chicago native with a demonic flair for four strings, backs up the melody with stampeding, ironclad bass lines that dig down to that part of your gut reserved for only the dirtiest Rock ‘n’ Roll. Michael Tassone, a Chicago native with the stamina of a team of horses wearing cleats, shows no mercy on the drum kit. He artfully keeps the beat driving forward between precisely timed detonations of thunderous fills.

The Outfit owes its driving sound to the legends who inspired millions. From Muddy Waters to Jack White; from Etta James to Grace Potter; from Hendrix to…well, Jimi stands alone. The Outfit performs all over the Chicago area, and has been privileged to play such venues as The Cubby Bear, Lincoln Hall, The Abbey Pub, Beat Kitchen and Goose Island, and has upcoming shows at Double Door, Reggie's, Hard Rock Cafe and the House of Blues.
