Mind At Large Has Got Me Thinking



I've moved in and am getting settled at college, and I just haven't had time to post. My apologies. We'll see how often I can post with Organic Chemistry on the horizon. Oh well-bear with me.
A couple of nights ago, I was introduced to the guitarist of a local Evanston, IL band called Mind At Large. We started talking a ton about music, etc. until he told me he was in a band and his friends insisted that he play for me their latest EP. At first, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this funk-rock quintet. And then I heard the voice of Pete Bartleson and the guitar stylings of Evan Sameroff, along with keyboardist Jack Pelzer, bassist Kenneth Elliott Higgins III, and percussionist Alec Zopf.
The song, "Recompose" off their Recompose EP sounds as if John Mayer started playing with Phish and Carlos Santana in a smoky room with the only goal being to jam and have fun.
If you're in the chicagoland area and you want to hear these guys play, they're going to play at Bill's Blues in Evanston on September 21st.

Check out Mind at Large's website where you can listen to the four track EP.

Definitely have a listen to Recompose.
