Stormy Chromer / Big Donut / Flying Caterpillar
February 8, 2018
Stormy Chromer erupted onto the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti music scene in early 2014. The band’s four members – Spencer Hanson and Brendan Collins on guitar, Ryan King on bass guitar, and Amin Lanseur on drums – mix their varying influences to create a new brand of progressive and improvisational rock. Their real-time compositional style has earned them a steady following of devoted fans in the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area, as well as a reputation within the greater Michigan music scene. Having played alongside nationally-touring acts like Consider the Source, Aqueous, The Main Squeeze, and After Funk, Stormy Chromer has been characterized by the Ann Arbor Current as having “a jazz-like knack for spread-out jams that can still keep things tight and land on a dime.” After an eventful 2015, including the release of the band’s debut EP “Peace of Pizza,” this band is poised to crash the scene like a tidal wave this year, with more shows, more recordings, and more melted faces than ever before!!
Flying Caterpillar is a hybrid jam band from southeast Michigan. They create a fusion of sound consisting of elements of psychedelic rock, space funk, reggae, acid-jazz, world-groove, soul, blues and rock and roll. Flying Caterpillar is an original band formed in the fall of 2017 consisting of Kenny Kochajda on bass guitar/vocals, Matt W on guitar/vocals, Brian W on keys/vocals, and Josh A on drums. Heavily influenced by the vibes, energy, and improvisational styles of the jam-band and festival scenes, along w/ the experimental freedom of the classic, psychedelic, and progressive rock of the 60s/70s ; Flying Caterpillar delivers a delightfully refreshing hybrid of new music to the music scene. Flying Caterpillar will be taking flight soon to bring their music to the masses. Stay tuned for the latest news, as Flying Caterpillar prepares to break onto the scene.
