1st Concert of the Season with Unstoppables
Thursday, June 06, 2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Unstoppables are a melting pot of veteran Region players that got their start jamming together at Finnegan’s Pub in Dyer. Given the fact that every member of the band has been a part of numerous other bands and projects, it allows the Unstoppables to bring a wide variety of music styles to the table.
Greg and Bruce have been playing together for 30 plus years. In addition, Dan and Mike have also been in the same band for many years. The resulting mix of experience and passion for music is pretty special.
We are all music lovers first and foremost which encompasses a wide spectrum of music genres. Our band was founded on the idea that we wanted to write and play music that was inspiring to us. Whether it’s something original (which we really enjoy sharing) or a cover tune that is a little off the beaten path, we are always in search of a tune or vibe that resonates with folks.
It’s tough to label the type of band that we are because of the wide range of styles that we enjoy playing. A good description might be Americana and Roots Rock and Roll. A rarity with this band is also the fact that we have four lead singers in the group. This along with our four part harmonies is what makes us a tad unique.
