Who we Are
We are a growing community of individuals sharing a common passion for
music, coming together to evolve the Chicago scene. We are creating an
atmosphere to dance, groove, and get funky whether we're organizing our
own productions, or supporting bands through
promotion of upcoming shows.
As festivalists, we are opening our city to fans and bands alike as hosts.
As archivists, we record and trade and expose fans to new music, or simply
educate each other on its origins. We want to create a symbiotic
relationship between bands, fans, and venues in Chicago to further the
celebration of great music.
We are a large collection of all types sharing a love of jazz, funk,
jambands great music. We are a wild bunch who manage to play hard and
maintain respect for each other and the musicians who share their talent
We represent the business side of music, bringing to Chicago the musicians
we love, and who we feel need to play our city more often. Stay tuned for the next Silver
We want bands to succeed, and we do everything we can to help them. Before
shows, we motivate our community to get tickets and organize pre/post
parties to make concerts into events. We distribute flyers and posters and
send mass e-mail reminders. Most importantly, we show our support by
dancing like crazy....
To Silver Wrapper, concerts are more than a couple sets of good music --
they are celebrations of life. We pre-party, post-party, and generally go
wild all night. Whether we are walking to the Vic, or road-tripping to New
Orleans, we are more than passive spectators.
Silver Wrapper is a connection of tapers with a treasure of live music, old
and new. More than simply trading tapes, we are interested in the origins
and influences of music we love the history of it.
You can offer up your tape list for trading or simply come out
and listen to some bootlegs.
