If you like deep cuts and extended versions of your favorite songs, this Chicago based band is for you!
Jam Bands-bands that often feature extended musical improvisation (jams) over rythmic grooves and chord patterns and long sets of music that cross genre boundaries.
The Mosquitos are a band that features a unique blend of classic rock and contemporary songs, with a flavor of percussive 'jam' band style extended cuts. The Mosquitos will take you on a musical experience that features a dual guitar attack, with a sweet bass groove, topped off with a melodic and at times haunting keyboard and piano sound. In addition, we have a mandolin/acoustic guitarist to drive the rhythm of the sound. The dual percussionists give a vibe and energy that adds a sensual almost mystic quality to the performance of the band. Now, add in some classic tunes by Santana, The Dead, Clapton, The Allman Brothers, etc. , as well as a few originals, and the Mosquitos deliver a package of deep and powerful sounds that showcase the diverse talents of nine musicians dedicated to providing an earthy and visual musical experience for their audience. We blend everything from rock to roots, from folk to reggae, from funk to blues!!! The live shows are where it all happens!!! So, come party with the band next time we are in your hood!!!!
