Uncommon Ground Edgewater is participating in Bands on Broadway! Come on out for the first three Fridays in August for live music, good food and hand-crafted drinks! On Friday, August 5, we will be hosting Absolute Phase from 6-9pm out in our beer garden!
Formed in 2019, this hard hitting five piece band consists of layered vocals, tasteful guitar licks, a full bass foundation, and driving drum beats with a goal to invoke emotion, self-reflection, and growth.
The band features Zak Johnson on lead vocals, Matt Storey on bass/background vocals, Andrew Kolb on drums/background vocals/guitar, Alvin Santner on lead guitar, and Ian Rottner on rhythm guitar/background vocals.
During their short career, they’ve opened for national acts such as Otherwise and Spoken along with playing shows at well known Chicago venues like The Cubby Bear, Basecamp, Q-bar, Arcada Theatre, and more. The band has also been featured on FOX, NBC, CBS, Garage Bands, Rock Rage Radio, The Tasting Room, The Daily Herald and have even been on the radio in the US and the UK. They were poised to be on the festival circuit 2020 opening for global acts such as Puddle of Mudd, Tantric, Fuel, Local H, and more but the pandemic had other plans. Absolute Phase also has a 9 song album released on December 8th, 2020 called “The Little Black Book”.
So far, 2021 has them focusing on writing new material and releasing more content for their fans with sparse shows in-between.
We host intimate, seated dinner shows with full food and beverage service throughout the night. We suggest arriving 45 minutes before show time so you can place your dinner order with your server. Check out our full menus HERE and enjoy the show!
UNCOMMON GROUND HAS HAD A FOCUS ON MUSIC AND LIVE ART EVENTS SINCE IT FIRST OPENED AS A LITTLE COFFEE HOUSE IN 1991. OUR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM INCLUDES LIVE SHOWS EVERY WEEK AT BOTH LOCATIONS! THE GOAL FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, WAS TO BE GROUND ZERO FOR EMERGING LOCAL & NATIONAL TOURING ARTISTS EACH NIGHT. OWNER MICHAEL CAMERON BOOKED ALL OF THE ENTERTAINMENT FROM 1991 UNTIL 2007 & STILL OVERSEES THE MUSIC PROGRAM WITH OUR FULL TIME MUSIC DIRECTOR, DANIEL WHITE.
WE HOST ONE OF THE BEST OPEN MICS IN THE COUNTRY EVERY SUNDAY AT OUR LAKEVIEW LOCATION WHICH ARE SPONSORED BY SHURE & GREENSTAR ORGANIC BREWERY. MANY OF OUR TALENTED NIGHTLY PERFORMERS HAVE GONE ON TO CRITICAL ACCLAIM. WITH UNCOMMON GROUND'S INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION, YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU MIGHT CATCH IN OUR INTIMATE ACOUSTIC LISTENING ROOMS.
