56 Hope Road is a band bonded like a family, and as a result, their music has an unmistakable honesty and openness. Uncanny, intuitive communication creates easy interplay on stage making even their most densely layered tunes sound effortless during live performances that look as fun they sound.
Every 56 show, rehearsal and recording session is part of an intimate, ongoing conversation between band members, and one that they happily invite their fans to join in on. 56 Hope Road is based in Chicago, IL. They pursue their goals with the indie spirit of their hometown and a midwestern roots sound accented by each member''s own experiences per forming within genres from jazz to indigenous music. 56 is a rare example of players with both ingenuity and technical savvy. They allow the joy of spontaneous creativity to color their song-based arrangements - neither losing their musical center, nor restricting its growth. Dave and Steve''s poetry is about good things, the people who enjoy them and why both are important in the world. When those lyrics dovetail with the band''s grooves, the result is seamless music that defies classification. Close vocal harmonies, a world-wise rhythm section that is eyes up all the time and genre-bending improvisations are what you can expect to hear from 56 Hope Road. What you call it is up to you.
