   Here's the scoop on The Chicago Mob  Check it out.  

Southwest Florida's Premier Funky, Bluesy, Chicago Style Classic Show Band. We've always been a high energy band we've just stepped it up a notch on the dance material side. We’re bringing the sounds of a classic 5 piece show-band in a pure, highly experienced, gifted and high energy musical package. Please check our schedule often and come out and experience the band. We have been known to raise the roof on many occasions. Every performance is one of a kind, “an up close and personal concert some say”. "They musically pull you right into the groove, it's just irresistible"!   EJ Harpo fronts the band with his gravel throaty soul. Everyone in the band sings so it keeps things fresh. Greg "Dr Funk" Oravec got his nickname from James Peterson the legendary blues-!singer, I guess it's  Doc's underlying funk groove, just spanking the electric bass that allows us to be so rhythmically synergistic,  you know, funky.

Some say they are just musical kindred spirits and it shines through. This is clearly representative of the essence of the The Chicago Mob.  Now we add one Mr.Don "Dapper Don" Cook on guitar and vocals and we are talking all star band here. Many Southwest Floridians know Cat Stephens as one of our areas most beloved keyboardist/saxophonists. 
Then, for a little more spice to ensure you get up and move add one Doug, "Baby Face" Thompson on drums / percussion / vocals and it's a rhythm section to be reckoned with.  On top of this line up you never know who may be in the audience or even sitting in with the band. You will be assured they are some of the finest musicians this area or beyond  has to offer. The chemistry of the individuals involved forms grooves that are hypnotic and airtight!  You have a classic American  Show Band in the truest tradition of groove. We have played the country and the world with some of the finest talents on the planet and there is nowhere we would rather be than here in Sothhwest Florida making music toghether. We’ve been playing music our entire lives  and have shared the stage with many notables.  The musical versatility, the soulful vocals, and a natural ability to engage the audience with musical integrity is what makes this group leave you wanting just one more song!

Let your inner  Mobster out!
