These South Side lads have been together and performing for over 25 years. They were originally the "House Band" at the now defunct legendary Reilly's Daughter located on Chicago's South Side.
Expect to get on your feet and dance to NETWORK's wide ranging playlist including Van Morrisson, Joe Cocker, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, The Bodeans, Poi Dog Pondering, Buster Poindexter, Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes, Motown and other oldies.
The band lineup includes Bob Cesario, lead vocals and percussion; Doug Alexander, guitar and vocals; Kent Kaled, bass guitar and vocals; Mike Ukinski: keyboards and vocals; Kevin Spell, drums; Tom Matuszak, saxophone and flute;
Fred Flaxmayer, trumpet, flute and saxophone; plus a host of auxillary bandmates and dropins.
If you want to know how they sound, they sound like NETWORK.
