Chirp is a four-piece, genre-hopping band based out of Ann Arbor, MI. Often playing in the styles of progressive rock/funk and jazz-fusion, their sound maintains a melodic center. The group features a wide array of originals and covers in their live sets and puts together dynamic, high-energy shows. Though their music ties in many technical elements, an equal emphasis is put on grooving and keeping people moving. Chirp takes influence from Snarky Puppy, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Yes, Daft Punk, Vulfpeck, and The Beatles, to name a few. Chirp has been hard at work since their formation in 2015, touring and recording consistently since the project began. Their fresh sound has taken them touring across the Midwest to play a large variety of venues and festivals.
Formed in 2019, Detroit-based “genre-fluid” sextet NWRH (Now With Real Humans) are known for their playful and evocative live performances. Their ability to connect with music lovers on a physical and emotional level has led to numerous sold-out events in clubs and DIY spaces across southeast MI and the Midwest.
