April’s Reign is one of the Midwest’s finest Rock & Roll bands around. The band is fronted by Suzie Castillo, one of the best female vocalist this area has seen in quite a long time. With her range and dynamic stage presence, Suzie puts on a show you will not soon forget! Backed by three of the tightest rock solid musicians you’ll ever see…Johnny Switzer on guitar, Darren Thompson on bass and Tony Berg on drums…you’ll be swept away by just how damn good these guys are!

Big City Trip was formed by Nick Ray Tabor from the Tabor Brothers Band. Nick and Mark Tonai had met at the House of Music in Orland Park, jamming guitars together, always having fun working on different riffs and songs. Mark had come in for lessons and after Nick worked with him for awhile, Mark moved on to study with Pat Lyons who is an exceptional guitar player. Nick Ray has written over 60 original songs in his repertoire and only recorded about 12 of them. Big City Trip plays some of the original songs live at their shows. Originally Brian Becker was added to the line up on drums and then Brian Miller on Bass. We also added Nicks now wife Jennifer Bowman on vocals and Aimee Guido on vocals. These girls grew up singing together and have a certain flair and presence on stage together. We also had the pleasure of working with Stacie B. Adams on vocals, she has a kind of Janis Joplin appeal to her, bringing a lot of energy to the stage, never staying in one spot. The group has changed players a bit, but the music is the same. We mix rock and blues, with some modern rock music and some funky originals. We have started to work with a new bass player Greg and he is working out well and also have worked with a few drummers like Jim Tabor from the Tabor Brothers Band and also Rod, who is a dynamic left handed drummer. Miki Mahilovich is also in our arsenal from time to time filling in on lead guitar. We are always looking for new venues to play and working on recording our originals to pass out at shows. Hope to see you at our next big event!

Well – you will have a darn good time – we play anything mostly, rock, blues, southern rock. Some of our shows you can bring the whole family, others are adults only! Check out the Set List above for a sample listing of tunes – but remember, Mike can audible a song at any time – especially if someone wants to come onstage and sing it – like YOU!
