Hurricane Reggae is Chicago’s premier, award winning reggae band and they will be blowing into Humiston-Riverside Park as par tof the Rockin’ at the River Concert Series. Hailing from the exotic isle of Dominica, Cleve “Hurricane” Jean Jacques has been a professional musician since he could remember. Hurricane’s musical career began at the tender age of fourteen, when he was performing as lead guitarist and vocalist for the Island’s leading band. Hurricane continued to develop in strength as a song writer, musical arranger, and entertainer. In 1986, he entered the arena of calypso and for the next fourteen years touched the hearts and lives of people all over the world. Get ready to experience a true Caribbean vibe, a total party package with reggae, soca, calypso, a little jazz and blues and a taste of a real island culture and sound from the Hurricane. Pontiac’s own The Unemployed Architects will start the show.

What is Mucca Pazza? In a word, FUN! But like nothing you have ever experienced before! Mucca Pazza is an intrepid interdisciplinary instrumental music ensemble from Chicago, IL. Since 2004, they have made a name for themselves playing alarmingly danceable music composed and arranged especially for their implausible instrumentation by band members - original music which defies classification. In addition to trumpets, saxophones, clarinets, trombones, and tubas, the band boasts a drumline that seems to share a single nervous system, an entire section of disparate instruments that don’t belong anywhere near a marching band (electric guitars, accordion, violin, and yes, a cello), and contains within its multitudes a cheer squad that performs absurdist cheers and asymmetrical, impressively low-to-the-ground pyramids. No-one has ever been completely certain of the exact number of people in Mucca Pazza. Everyone can be completely certain that this group of weirdos belongs together!
