Radio Man - An Original Music Experience - 8:00 PM
1700 N. Halsted Street
Chicago, IL 60614
Price: $18.00

Radioman is a staged music experience that explores the life of being an original artist today. Join Tim Frank and some members of Band Called Catch as they tell the story of a great band that never became great. 

Band Called Catch was founded in 2008. Since then, the band has had members come and go as they journeyed through the reality of what it takes for an original band to "make it" in today's saturated music scene. Ups and downs & close-calls, label offers that didn't bring the faith, and some radio and television plays that just weren't enough. The band journeyed on because they never lost the most important element; love for what they do.

The style of BCC's music is as eclectic as the subject matter of the songs. Blending Folk, Americana, Rock, and more as they explore childhood, risks, politics, temptation, love, and everything in between. BCC has released 4 records over the years with the latest record "we all look the same" just being released in January of 2018. Join Tim and the band for an evening of laughs, thoughts, claps, and sips at Steppenwolf's 1700 Theatre. 

Featuring: Tim Frank, Jess Lyons, David Langley, Tim Koelling, & Darcy Wood
