A Chicago-based alternative rock band with electro indie roots is making its way onto the national music scene.

Since its launch in 2010, Polarcode has played popular music venues from New York City and Boston to Los Angeles, Chicago and Milwaukee.

Creating songs about personal discovery, relationships, and the rise of technology, Polarcode draws inspiration from the challenging realities of 21st century life.

Polarcode delivers its original songs with layers of synthesizers, keyboards, intricate bass and drum interaction, tribal percussion and soaring vocals.

The band’s jazz and classically trained musicians bring a unique juxtiposition of fiery virtuosity and delicate warmth to their music.

Polarcode released their debut album, Polarcode, in 2011 and continue to delight audiences with their passionate performances.
Rocketboat is an American adventure-rock band. Members Collin Magdaz, Marc Adrian, Josh Hanchar, and Andrew Dumaresq produce a sound forged in the embers of punk and post-modern rock that is dynamically rooted in science fiction and video games.
Crook County
Crook County
Crook County's Nathaniel Matthew (guitars/vocals) and J Polakowski (drums/vocals) met in Chicago in late 2011. Matthew had just finished a successful run of shows on the back of his first solo release, Songs on Recycled Cotton Pulp, and Polakowski had recently returned to the United States from traveling and playing in Europe. The pair played with a variety of other musicians before deciding they sounded best as a two piece.

Crook County was officially born in the summer of 2012.

Merging Soul, Rock and Roots music, Crook County sounds both familiar and fresh at the same time. Matthew's standout vocals sit perfectly atop a carousel of electric, acoustic and slide guitars and Polakowski's spartan-yet-catchy drumming. The most impressive aspect of Crook County is how full and dynamic their music sounds despite the size of their roster. With this band, the pair is certainly greater than the sum of their parts.
