Formed in the Fall of 2010, Brown Bag is a fresh, organic Rock & Roll band hailing from the South-side of Chicago, IL. Influences range from folk, rock, jam, jazz & more. A unique, yet acquainted group striving to develop a unique sound & style. Brown Bag refuses to stick to one specific musical movement.
