Launched in 2013, Ginger Road is one of Chicago’s premier “New Modern” Country bands appearing regularly at top venues from Chicago to Nashville including Tootsies, Rippy’s, Old Crow Smokehouse, Firewater Saloon, 115 Bourbon Street, Bub City, Smoke Daddy, and many more including Navy Pier Beer Garden, scores of Chicagoland Street Festivals and dozens of Corporate functions.

Ginger Road blends faithful interpretations of the latest Country hits by artists such as Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line, with Country classics by Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. With their Rock roots, Ginger Road will also pepper in a few choice Rock classics if called for.

Ginger Road features local Chicago music scene veterans “Singin’” Dave Burnell on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Mark “Madness” Maciasz on lead guitar and backing vocals, Doug “Johnbones” Johnson on bass and Carmen Taglia on drums. These four musicians combine exceptional talent with an engaging mix of positive energy, humor and audience inclusion.

If your venue or event demands highly entertaining, top caliber talent that pulls an audience in and doesn’t let them go, then it’s time to put the top down, crank the radio up and take a drive down…Ginger Road.
