Ernie Hendrickson and The Make Believe Celebrate CD Debut Release 3/4 In Chicago

Ernie Hendrickson and The Make Believe will celebrate the release of their debut album, Only A Dream, Saturday March 4, at Martyr’s in Chicago. With top notch players quickly ascending the ranks of Chicago’s improvisational rock scene, EH & TMB delivers elements of jazz, fusion, rock, soul, and reggae, and handles these styles with enough grace and confidence to make even first time listeners believers.

After completing a two-month residency at Chicago’s Tonic Room, TMB landed a spot on promoter Triple Dot MAS’s Winter Compliation CD featuring bands such as Umphrey’s Mcgee and Fareed Haque Group. Their self-titled debut E.P. boasts an impressive list of special guests including Joel Cummins, keyboardist for Umphrey’s Mcgee, and Serbian guitar prodigy Goram Ivanovic.

As Lisa Palmeno of the Rock River Times stated, “This group is not easy to stereotype, because they have developed their own style and seem comfortable with a variety of music genres.”
