Tricky Ol' Puss with WhySoWhite
Tricky Ol Puss is the People's magician.  Since his inception in 2005, he has strived to direct his audience's attention toward entertainment and camaraderie. He is not here to fool the masses, but rather to unite and spread the word. His unique blend of sleight of hand, absurdity, and spoken word create an aural and visual sensation so intense; you'd think you were at a dubstep show.  Ol Puss has been featured on stage in Las Vegas, Cairo, Chicago, and Timmy's 5th birthday party. 

2014 will be the 6th year Ol' Puss has graced the stage of the Soulshine Tent; each year captivating a larger and larger audience and using more and more assistants.  This year he brings a whole new bag of tricks and his assistants will be none other than the unstoppable positive momentum of _whysowhite_

Chicago funk/hip-hop group whysowhite released their self-titled debut album in February 2013. Well received by listeners it shot to the front page of popular social news site Reddit, #1 on Bandcamp with featured coverage on Jay-Z's Life + Times. During SXSW 2013, whysowhite played several showcases including a supporting set for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Headlining dates at Chicago venues like Subterranean, Double Door and Martyrs followed with a main stage performance at North Coast Music Festival in Chicago.
whysowhite started off 2014 recording a session with Audiotree.TV and releasing a music video for fan favorite "Get Busy." As a result Ruby Hornet labeled whysowhite as one of their "Chicago Acts To Look Out For in 2014." whysowhite will wrap up a 17-date national tour in March 2014 with a stop at SXSW. The group's sophomore album is slated or Summer 2014 with national tour and festival dates to be announced.

With the powers of O' Puss and _whysowhite_ finally combined; the world is literally their oyster. A delicious briny cup of malleable goo. Come watch them shuck it.

AfroZep

AfroZep originated in 2009 with the mission to spread African music to wider audiences while paying tribute to the greatest Heavy Rock band of all time. Some tunes are straight mash-ups of Fela Kuti and Zeppelin, others are Zep tunes but set to original grooves based off the music of artists such as Tinariwen, Thomas Mapfumo and Franco and others are stripped down Zeppelin arrangements injected with the pulse of traditional African drumming.

Led by Wilson (guitar/vocals), Marshall Greenhouse (drum-kit), and Ryan Behling (bass and lead vocals), AfroZep has consistently been touring since their formation, having played festivals, clubs and universities, which are often coupled with workshops. The group has been gaining major media attention for both their unique take on Led Zeppelin, (Led Zeppelin Cover Band of the Year- Chicago Reader, Led Zeppelin Cover Band of Choice- XRT Radio Chicago) as well as for their contribution to African music. In both 2012 and 2013 the group has received multiple nominations at the Chicago Music Awards (African Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year). Wilson, Marshall and Ryan (which also make up the psychedelic rock trio KAVA) bring years of road experience with them and a rotating all-star cast of musicians they have met along the way that includes some of the countries top traditional West African percussionists and most in-demand rock and jazz horn players.

Stepping Into the Hoop & Partner Hooping

This year at Summer Camp we will be mixing the hoop workshops up a bit!  We have been exploring and evolving in the flow arts for a combined total of almost 9 years, teaching together for a little under 2, and were even nominated for a 2013 Hoopie Award for their partner video "Another Day in the Park."  To share our experience with you, we’re offering a wide variety of workshops for all hooping levels.  Friday will be split into two groups, one for those who are new and want to learn more basic single hoop tricks and one for more advanced hoopers who would like to learn the basics of double hooping.  Saturday, one group will have the option to learn partner hooping skills which will show you tricks that incorporate a duo instead of one hooper and the second group will learn to stylize dance, perfect for those wanting to add more personal style into their hoop dance.  On Sunday, the first option is a foot hooping class and the second option will be about power moves and tosses.  In this workshop you will learn tricks to really "wow" your crowd and also some awesome tosses!  Throughout each workshop we will have our hoop fairy helpers there for extra help, as we’re expecting a large group this year!

UM Golden Ticket

Join us Friday, May 23rd at Summer Camp Music Festival for the fourth annual Golden Ticket event, taking place from 1:30-2:30 outside the Soulshine tent. What exactly is the Golden Ticket?

 

It's your chance to win free tickets for you and a friend to every UM show for a year*. Perhaps you'll snag the Golden Ticket that offers you every poster released thus far in 2014, VIP tickets to our 2014 NYE run, or late-night tickets to the red barn. At a minimum, you'll take home more merch than you paid for. It's like playing the lottery but you're a guaranteed winner.

 

Here's how it works: 

 

This year, we've partnered with Eagles Nest Outfitters to exclusive create custom bags. Each of these will be stuffed with merch, and every bag's contents will remain a mystery until you have it in your hands! Hidden amongst the bags, will be 20 Golden Tickets alongside a whole host of prizes. 

 

Along with attending every Umphrey's show for a year, a partial list of items that you could find residing in your bag this year also include: t-shirts (in your size!), assorted posters, handbills, vinyl, koozies, stickers, and more. Golden Ticket winnings include: 2 tickets to the 5 shows of your choosing*, photo pit access during Umphrey's set, passes for you and a friend to Summer Camp late night shows in the Red Barn and so much more. Three winners will receive Summer Camp survival kits: bags filled to the brim with everything you didn't know you needed to survive the weekend.

 

Like last year, we'll be donating a portion of the proceeds to one of Summer Camp's many not-for-profit charities. This year proceeds will once again benefit The Runway to Hope Foundation, a creative anti-bullying campaign focused on music as a great equalizer. Right on. So head over to the Soulshine Tent right before moe.'s set on Friday and join us for the shenanigans. You can't lose.

 

What: UM Golden Ticket

Where: Summer Camp Festival, in the Soulshine Tent

When: Friday, May 23rd, 1:30pm - 2:30pm

Henhouse Prowlers presented by The WOMB

Join Henhouse Prowlers and The Way of the Body and Mind as they play some music and discuss human roots back to Africa.

The WOMB believes that there is one race; the HUMAN race! We pride ourselves in helping all people find their roots in the fact that we all have the same origin: Africa! Finding our common root in the birth place of humanity helps us to be UNIFIED in our struggle to make sure that ALL humans receive their basic needs. The #1 thing that most humans do not have access to is real food. Since 70% of all food on shelves are processed and 80% of food is genetically modified, we lead in teaching folks how to eat whole foods on a budget as well as to rally to expose the structure of these food-like-products. Large corporations have taken over the basis for our physical, mental, emotional and cultural health! Join us in celebrating our unity and organizing for change at our tables, workshop and at our March Against Monsanto!

wayofmindandbody.org

Nine years in the making, Chicago’s Henhouse Prowlers have built a reputation for hard work and non-stop touring, playing music inspired by the roots of bluegrass while branching out into a sound uniquely their own. From lightning fast picking, to sentimental ballads—playing storied original material, traditional songs, and contemporary covers—The Prowlers’ live show leaves no one wanting.

Their most recent album “Breaking Ground” grew out of collaboration and time well spent, having completed it within months of multiple cross-country US tours and the band’s third trip to Europe. Produced by Greg Cahill (Grammy nominated band-leader of Special Consensus), with special guests Josh Williams (of Rhonda Vincent and the Rage) and Anders Beck (of Greensky Bluegrass), this recording packs punch after punch.

The band was recently selected by the US State Dept. to spend a month in West Africa and will be headed back to Europe in 2014 for their largest tour abroad to date. The Prowlers continue to push the envelope with their highly original songwriting, tight arrangements, and electrifying stage presence. With the bluegrass mantle on their back and the best fans in the world by their side, The Henhouse Prowlers are here to stay for a long, long time.

Non GMO March

RAGE AGAINST GMOs
Corporations and the corporate elite have taken over your food!  We live in a fast food nation were the majority of processed foods have genetically modified ingredients. On May 24th, millions around the world are banning together to say no to this take over! Join us Saturday, 3pm, at The Soulshine Tent to RAGE AGAINST GMOs!!! 
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology.  This technology privatizes the seed, placing a monopoly on agriculture which both disrupts access to food sovereignty globally and threatens the genome integrity of the foods of our ancestors.  This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature.  The alterations can harm balanced ecosystems, and are notorious as a mechanism for the sale of excessive pesticides that poison our commons; the air, water and soil. 
ALL HUMANS HAVE A RIGHT TO GROW FOOD AND ONLY MOTHER NATURE CAN CREATE FOOD! Join us for a rally at Soulshine Tent : bring drums, costumes, signs and YOUR VOICE as we march across the grounds!

Here Comes the Sun Stereo
Watch as Sun Stereo transforms in Sgt Pepper's for a very special Beatles set.


Sun Stereo is a 6 piece band hailing from Urbana, Illinois, consisting of o1 theatrical flunky and 5 jazz junkies. After graduating with a Musical Theater Composition degree from University of Illinois, Kelly McMorris (music, lyrics, vocals, keys) has been writing music, performing in a plethora of projects, and all the while canvassing the gutters and bowels of churches, saloons, and opera houses for the perfect concoction of thugs and miscreants to transpire his musical vision. In 2010, he reunited with Jesse Greenlee (drums, cymbals, vocals) and began fleshing out the prenatal bones of the first full length album, Rogue Satellite. After it’s completion, they tapped the veins of the University of Illinois Jazz program to procure the remaining pieces (Josh Houchin, bass, vocals; Adrian Barnett, bari sax; Euan Edmonds, trombone; Kevin Bourassa, Trumpet; Jon Griffith, bari sax) and bring the album’s nuances and grandiose intricacies to life on the stage.Sun Stereo delivers a hybridization of organic and electronic elements with Beatlesque vocal harmonies, electronic soundscapes, nu-age story book lyrics, and a funk your face off horn section. In the first year of existence, they have developed a fierce following and our quickly establishing themselves in the Midwest as a must see live show, reminiscent of a wedding reception on acid sans the chicken dance. Recently, they performed at Pygmalion Music Festival, Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road Tour in Dixon, Il., and Summer Camp Music Festival. Currently, they are finishing their 2nd full length album expected out in the Spring of 2013 and are sewing their infectious anthems across the Midwest.

Swear and Shake presented by HeadCount

Join Swear and Shake and HeadCount as they play some music and discuss how you can and you should stay involved in today's political climate.  

HeadCount is a grassroots organization that uses the power of music to register voters and raise political consciousness. Since 2004 we've staged voter registration drives at over 2,000 concerts and signed up over 175,000 voters. We reach young people and music fans where they already are - at concerts and online - to inform and empower.

Our message is not about what party you support or where you land on an issue. It's that you must speak to be heard.

headcount.org




Swear and Shake
In a city that offers endless new sounds, New York-based band Swear and Shake’s loyal fan base and earnest talent have driven them on tours across the US and into the focal point of fawning critics. The band’s star seems to be continually on the rise, as they play premiere Manhattan and Brooklyn venues and release their fully-Kickstarter-funded LP, Maple Ridge, only a year after their formation.

Swear and Shake is Kari Spieler (vocals, lyrics, guitar), Adam McHeffey (vocals, lyrics, guitar, banjo, piano), Shaun Savage (electric bass), and Tom Elefante (percussion). The band formed in 2010 after Kari helped Adam record a demo one of his original songs, “Johnnie.” From that moment, they knew they were on to something good. Adam recruited longtime friends Shaun and Tom to flesh out the sounds behind Kari’s soulful, smoky voice and Adam’s catchy folk strumming.

The band was a hit from their first release in November 2010, a five track album aptly titled “Extended Play,” which received over 200,000 Creative Commons downloads in North American and Europe. In the first few months, favorite tunes like “Johnnie” and “Bones” started to pop up in covers on YouTube.

Newsday praised the band, comparing them to indie darlings Mumford & Sons and Bon Iver. New York’s The Deli described front lady Kari’s pipes as “gorgeously full,” and Brooklyn Belles compared her to “a young June Carter Cash.” David Malachowski of the Daily Freeman made clear that Swear and Shake is more than fun sounds and pretty faces. “A haunting postcard from a faraway, warmer place, Spieler’s moving, heartfelt delivery takes this to a higher place,” writes Malachowski. “Daring and direct, Swear and Shake points a finger at you, and you can’t help but respond. Well done.” Frost Click called the band’s EP a “treat” and writes, “There’s no denying the fact that Swear and Shake know how to make amazing sounds. The quartet has a knack for creating a wonderful balance of emotion, instruments, vocals and lyrics; making you want to listen more and more.”

Writing about their appearance at B.O.M.B. Fest opening for Weezer and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Connecticut’s Culture Cache called their sound, “expansive, majestic, harmony-heavy,” and music blog The Indie Kollection wrote, “Musical discoveries like these make me want to move to NY.” Luckily, there’s still time to make the move considering blog The Feast called them “a mainstay on the New York scene.”

Despite the band’s critical acclaim, attending a Swear and Shake show feels like a cozy, crowded room of old friends where a guitar is picked up as the last bottle is poured. Shows at New York institutions like The Living Room, Pete’s Candy Store, The Knitting Factory, Arlene’s Grocery, and the Bitter End have been raucous and full of laughter and dancing. Music blog Sounds That Matter, who had the band record a video for their site testified, “It took me one day to realize I was head over heels for this band.”

Using the crowd-funding site, Kickstarter, the band raised $5,250 ($750 over their goal) from over 100 individual donations to make their latest independent record. Swear and Shake used various social media outlets and endearing quirky video updates to get the word out about their Kickstarter campaign (and released a super adorable impromptu celebratory dance video when they reached their goal). Recording was finished in the early fall and the album, including recent fan favorites like “These White Walls,” “Marbles,” and “Wrecking Ball,” will be available in early 2012.

This Must Be the Band

“This Must Be the Band” is Chicago’s only and therefore best Talking Heads Tribute Band; only performing Talking Heads music, and, if possible, 3 to 4 hours at a time.

Formed in May of 2007, This Must Be the Band began by playing the cov- eted pizza joint circuit, the most notable of which was the city-famous Piece Pizza in Wicker Park. Since then, the band has expanded east to NYC and west to San Francisco.

This Must Be the Band has two main dishes on their menu: the first is a succulent “All-Request Show,” with a generous helping of audience partici- pation, flavored slightly by improvisation. The second is the hailed “Stop Making Sense Re-Creation,” where the band performs note-for-note and prop-for-prop the famous Talking Heads concert film from 1984. For three years running, the band has performed this show to a sold-out crowd at the Vic Theatre and Park West in Chicago.

This Must be the Band is extremely happy to play Talking Heads music night after night because the music is just that much fun. Not only has the lead singer (Charlie Otto) been called “the illegitimate son of David Byrne,” but the band boasts its very own Tina Weymouth (Jamie Jay), Bernie Worrell (Matt Gunsaulus), Adrian Belew (Otto), and Ednah Holt (Kasey Foster).
