Too White Crew:
Alright STOP. Collaborate an’ LIS-en. Remember when hip hop Talked About Sex? When you could Bust a Move, Shake the Rump, do the Humpty and no one was poppin’ caps? When Bell Biv Devoe called all y’all tricks “Poison” and warned all the fellas to “never trust a big butt & a smiiiiiiile”? We do Too. We’ll drink up all the Hennessey you got on yo’ shelf, so just let us introduce ourselves…
There is simply no band anywhere like the Too White Crew. It is a tribute to the golden era of hip hop, featuring all-live 80’s and 90’s covers (no tracks) from a six piece band, accompanied by choreographed “Fly Girl” dancers. On bigger stages we bring our Bra$$ Funkeez horn section, bboys, our Extremely Worthless Posse, live painters, empty shoe boxes, broken projection TV’s, you name it. It’s a party band…it’s a show…it’s art…it’s madness on stage — all packaged in an unprecedented way. TWC has opened for countless hip hop & pop legends and is the only band in the past decade to perform at the Playboy Mansion. Too White Crew’s nationally-touring show is also one of the top-requested festival acts.
Thinking of booking the Crew? Yes we do corporate shows, weddings, birthday parties, festivals — including all ages shows that are family friendly. For prospective bookings, please check out our “booking“ link at www.toowhitecrew.com.
TWC is not responsible for injuries sustained from grown ups trying to do the worm, the running man or the Roger Rabbit. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Trash Martini is a Chicago based cover band playing all the hit songs you know and love from the earliest pioneers of Rock N Roll all the way to the radio friendly pop rock of today. Paying close attention to detail & authenticity, Trash Martini continues to gain a loyal and growing fan base throughout the Midwest with rave reviews.
Formed in 2007 by Ral Donner II and Erik Donner; both sons of multi-platinum recording artist, Ral Donner, who influenced such greats as Robert Plant and John Lennon, among countless others. Sharing Lead Vocal duties, the Donner Brothers give you not one, but two First-Class Vocalists, enabling them to handle a much wider range of music than most. Both Ral and Erik play multiple instruments in the band as well, seamlessly changing from one to the next as their amazing show progresses. With years of collective experience and professionalism between each member of the band, Trash Martini can work their crowd into a frenzy, then bring them back down to an intimate setting with ease, tailoring each and every show to their particular audience. Their stage presence is unparalleled by other music acts and their live show is just as visually stimulating as it is sonically. Whether it’s fist-pumping Rock Anthems or melodic acoustic sing-alongs, a Trash Martini show has it all, and then some. This band is made to keep the crowd out on the floor dancing from the first song until the final encore. Trash’s live energy and entertainment value will leave you 100% satisfied, but still always wanting more!
“Welcome to the Party…”

Do Not miss this post halloween horror experience!
More about Doyle:
Legendary Ex-Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein has broken new ground with his solo project, “DOYLE”. A horror based hardrock/metal band of epic proportions. Still grinding out heavy riffs is the hulking monster himself, Doyle of Misfits fame,and Alex Story from ‘Cancerslug provides vocals filled with misanthropic rage, while still capturing the beauty of the dark side. Solidifying the quartet is Graham (ex-Graves, ex-Let It Burn) on bass, unifying the skull crushing sound that is the machine Doyle himself has put together. DOYLE cranks out music as scary as the Misfits, as doom laden as Black Sabbath, and has the same hard-hitting in your face style of metal as Motorhead or Slayer.

Bumsy and the Moochers:
Behold, a splendid, spectacular six piece band from Chicago, IL. Our sound has been described as a fusion of 90s pop punk and ska. With melodic vocals, killer horn lines, and overall shredding, our songs are sure to get stuck in your head. A wise man once told us we found a way to put fun in a bottle and spray it all in your face while you are dancing.
The Run Around:
The year was 2006. The day was no different than any other Fall Day in Normal, IL. Five guys got together for the first time in a cramped basement to start what can be described as a true underdog story that they only slightly remember. Fueled by Admiral Nelson and a desire to write uninhibited Party Punk The band started playing house parties, winning numerous local battle of the bands and the hearts of every college kid they played in front of. To them this was success, they wanted to drink for free, and play one hell of a party every night. However, in the back of their minds they knew there was a great big world out there and if they ever wanted their brand of debauchery to reach the masses they’d have to expand on their college circuit.
In the Spring of 2009 frontman Jason Fein was surfing the world wide web, for what he still refuses to speak of, but in doing so he stumbled upon an International Battle of the bands. The winner of this contest got to play one of the main stages at SummerFest in Milwaukee, opening up for Blues Traveler and Tom Petty. Jason, not thinking much of it, decided for the hell of it he would enter their latest single “Runaway Mexico” into the contest. He didn’t even tell his band he did so for the first couple weeks. After all, there were 776 other bands across the world in this contest and they were just a small time College band. After the second week of being in the contest the band had climbed from the bottom to the 223rd spot. Thinking this was news worthy for his band mates he decided to mention it at that point. Within a month, the band had reached the top 50, two months, the top 10 and by the end of the first round the band had over 100,000 votes and was firmly locked in the number two spot. The top 4 bands went on to the final round which was three weeks of the world voting on their favorite band based on their entire catalog. Still, forever the underdogs the band knocked off three other more experienced bands to put them from a college basement band to playing the biggest Music Festival in the world.
Many bands would have peaked at this point. After all, how do you top that? Well, within a month of them playing the festival they had signed their first Management contract. This contract put them on stage at The famous Congress Theatre in Chicago. Shortly after that they signed their first record deal with the now defunct Window Licker Records but before that they released their most successful album up that point entitled Side Effects May Vary. The album’s biggest single “The DEA” got them nation radio play including Chicago’s late/great Q101. The band took this album and hit the road playing twenty different states across America and gaining hundreds of fans a night helping fund their completely DIY tour schedule. For This band, being independent and doing it themselves was never an issue. In fact, it’s what felt most natural. After all, in their heads they were still the band playing in that cramped basement in Normal, IL.
A year later and many management, artist development and record label conversations the band finally got tired of handling everything themselves. At this time they met Rafay Qamar, a young but driven band manager who immediately saw and fell in love with The Run Around brand. For the band, going to someone unknown but eager was exactly what they needed. Now, they could focus on writing the long awaited follow up album to Side Effects May Vary that their fans were growing more and more impatient for by the day.
In The Fall of 2012 The Run Around released what would easily be their most impressive and impactful body of work yet in Welcome to the Circus. Their CD release show was to a sold out Hard Rock Café in Chicago and they haven’t looked back yet. At the same time they released a video for their biggest single to date “Chicago” that has over 30,000 plays. Everyone that has heard that song has said the same thing “I can’t wait to hear that song in Chicago sport stadiums.” Since the release the band has helped pack and sometimes sell out The House of Blues, The Metro, Reggies, The Cubby Bear and Durty Nellies just to name a few.
Just like their music, The Run Around fans are rowdy and dedicated. One thing that hasn’t changed from the frat party basements, this bands stage show and energy goes unmatched. Their albums will draw you in, there live show will make you a lifelong fan.
