My My My
My My My
Through the grace of Craigslist and sheer timing, My My My formed on the heels of a Chicago winter in 2007 when founder/singer/songwriter Russell Baylin set out looking for artists to share his musical vision. He found singer Sarah Snow, and together, their shared vocals capture life’s playful frustrations and satisfactions. Sarah brought in multi-instrumentalist Johnny Szymanski who adds sonic subtleties that highlight the sarcastic, yet good-natured undertones in the music. Guitarist Ante S. Gelo adds multifaceted rhythm, riffs, licks and nuances that accentuate the dynamics as drummer John Sorensen and bassist Jake Bartolone drive the mood with a forceful, yet vibrant pulse that sounds like flirtatious revenge. Together My My My creates a vivacious depth to refreshing songs that seduce with a sly, witty intensity.

Since their serendipitous inception, My My My has captivated audiences with their magnetic boy/girl vocal dichotomy, sonorous and buoyant melodies, and dynamic, resonating beats at the Sundance Film Festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, North By Northeast (NxNE) in Toronto, the Taste of Chicago, Old St. Pat’s World’s Largest Block Party, the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, and in Chicago clubs like METRO, Schubas, Bottom Lounge, Martyrs’, Subterranean, The Note, as well as clubs on both coasts. My My My has also been played on Keeping up with the Kardashians, Bad Girls Club, Last Call with Carson Daly, The Real World: San Diego, and The Real World: Las Vegas.
Miss Jackie and The Sass
Miss Jackie and The Sass
Miss Jackie and The Sass are a one-of-a-kind group of ladies and fellas from Chicago, Illinois. Their sound has been described as “candid blues”, with a tinge of old-school country. The Sass’ original tunes are well-constructed and catchy, with outspoken, honest, and occasionally obscene lyrics that tell of desire, relationships and self-lovin’.

Fans of Miss Jackie and The Sass are especially drawn to their energetic and passionate live shows that overflow with powerful and soulful vocals, tight harmonies, perfect-fit drumming, low-down, dirty bass riffs and organic, flowing blues guitar solos.

The Sass was founded in 2005 by Miss Jackie Matejko and Kristen Regester. In 2008 they recorded their debut EP, “You’re Finally Gettin’ Some,” which includes the ultimate declaration of female sexual confidence, “Bad One,” and the hilarious and true tale of woe, “The Pussy Song.” With the additions of the fine and talented Dave Langley and John Keebler, The Sass has developed into a solid, dynamic, unique and genuinely enjoyable band.

Miss Jackie and The Sass are currently gigging around Chicagoland and working on new tunes for your ears and ass
