On Friday, March 8th 2019, a bunch of Chicago and a few non-Chicago musicians got together in benefit for Jerry Bryant of JBTV at The Metro!
The show included a lot of hit 90’s cover songs, which was really good. Tom Higgensen of the Plain White T’s also played his band’s hit single “Hey there Delilah”, Kill Hannah also played there hit song ” Lips Like Morphine” both of which aren’t 90s songs, but they are great hits!
Many great acts that played were Marina City, Marty Casey (The Lovehammers), Madina Lake, Kill Hannah, Local H, LPX, Naked Ray Gun, and Andrew W.K.
One of the highlights was when Jerry Bryant of JBTV stated it was his first show at the Metro he attended that he wasn’t behind a camera! He’s been doing his own show for over 35 years which is the longest running musical television program and has helped many artists get their career a started. It was cool to see so many artists that got their start on JBTV give back to someone and a program that do so much for the music industry.
Everyone did a beautiful rendition of assorted 90’s covers and it was such a great evening dedicated to a great cause!
