Chirp
Based in Ann Arbor, MI, Chirp is a four-piece band that does its fair share of genre-hopping, but often plays in the styles of progressive rock/funk and jazz-fusion. Officially formed in Fall 2015, Chirp mixes originals and covers into their live sets and puts together grabbing, dynamic shows. Though their music features a lot of technical elements, an equal emphasis is put on grooving and keeping people moving. They ...released an EP called "Live From Brownstown" in 2016, which features live studio takes of five original tunes and has been met with a great reception. Catch Chirp live in 2017 and stay on the lookout for a full-length release!
