Hailing from Chicago, Lunar Ticks aim to barrel through stylistic boundaries by recreating and expanding on roots music (rock, jazz, punk, country, funk, soul, world, bluegrass etc.), with a DIY ethic and a jovial attitude. The band is influenced by the innovative alternative rock of Wilco and My Morning Jacket, with a healthy touch of improvisation and composition in the vein of Umphrey’s Mcgee and Phish. Lunar Ticks have had the pleasure of opening for Aqueous, Mungion, Mr. Blotto, Old Shoe, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, Cornmeal, and members of Vulfpeck. They have also played festivals throughout the midwest, including Shoefest and back to back trips to Summer Camp Music Festival. Each show is a unique experience with diverse originals and covers, crowd interaction, and exploratory improvisation. The band and the audience play off each other, creating something that’s never happened before, and never will again.
