Featured Entertainer: Sunnyside Up

Image may contain: 2 people “Chicago’s Sunnyside Up makes the sounds of bluegrass its own. Audiences are quick to move to the beat of an uplifting performance, and Sunnyside Up delivers. The melodious sounds of this three-piece band can change the way you think of bluegrass music. Aficionados and newbies alike love the Sunnyside Up’s approach to the beloved style of bluegrass music.” – CBS Chicago, Best of Chicago
