Not for Sleepin'
'Not for Sleepin'' is the debut EP from Chicago soul band The Congregation. Classic soul meets rock and roll in this dynamic eight-piece collective. . The Congregation features Gina Bloom--a singer whose voice radiates with raw emotion and soul power. Charlie Wayne's punk-infused guitar riffs, Chuck Sansone's keyboard grooves and Joe DeBord and Dan Wendt's garage rock rhythms are topped off by the lively call and response of a three-piece horn section--Brian Crane on trumpet, Nick Nottoli on trombone and Erik Eiseman on saxophone. When it comes to the songwriting, you won't find any sugarcoated love songs here--you'll get a little bit of longing and a whole lot of wronging.
