Artist: The Usual Mistakes
About the Episode:
THE USUAL MISTAKES formed in January of 2005 with the meeting of charismatic frontman/rhythm guitarist Phillip and killer lead guitarist Bob aka 'Slaphead'. The two began honing their craft in venues across Illinois as they searched for the pieces to complete their sound.
Their search was completed when Myron, a rockin' & groovin' bassist, and drummer/vocalist extraordinaire Billy joined the band in 2007 and 2010.
The band has seen several lineup changes since then, but found its soul in 2013 with the addition of extraordinary guitar player Kevin.
Since 2005, the band has been jammin' in venues from intimate coffee houses to large clubs and theaters. Previous venues have included: the Beat Kitchen, O'Malley's, Red Line Tap, Champs, Charlie Horse, Chant, Miska's, Avenue Wine Bar, Q Billiards, appearances at Homewood Fest, appearances at Hyde Park Fest, and many many more.
