Three of the top bluegrass musicians in the Chicago area, Rob Anderlik, Pat Otto and Mike Church first met at late night jam session and felt a deep musical connection from the moment they played together. Even better, they discovered they shared a wide range of musical interests, ranging from Southern and Classic Rock, Blues, Swing, Jazz Standards, Cinematic Instrumentals, Folk Music and of course, Bluegrass. They formed a trio in 2015 and quickly built a reputation as one of the most versatile acoustic bands in the Midwest.
Steeped in a variety of musical genres with chops to spare, the trio plays together with great finesse and is capable of switching gears to suit a variety of occasions - everything from festivals to nightclubs, private and corporate events, weddings, public libraries and brew pubs. When you hire AOC for your event you can rest assured you are hiring top notch professional musicians who will work closely with you to ensure your event is a total success.
The trio is available to perform in various combinations: depending on the occasion, adding upright or electric bass, cello and drums.
