"In a marketplace over saturated with corporate created talent, MER delivers a refreshing reminder that musicians with originality and heart still exist!" - Chicago Tribune
MER invites some of Chicago's finest artists to partake in a "songwriters in the round" session followed by a featured artists performance every Monday night in January. This stripped down format gives front men/women a chance to step back from their bands and deliver their stories and music as they were originally contrived. Catch this unique vibe and enjoy the sincere delivery of Chicago's most dedicated songwriters!

Although Rock Star's top prize - a gig as front man for INXS -- eluded him, the buzz Marty Casey created on the 2005 reality show crescendoed to a full-blast musical fury of song writing, touring and recording. He continued to blaze new trails with his powerfully electrifying performances, first with his band, the Lovehammers, and, since June 2008, as the lead singer for L.A. Guns, one of the hardest rocking and most notorious bands to come off of the famed Sunset Strip. He hit the road this summer for the U.S. and South American Blackout Tour with his new band mates - Jeremy Guns, Chad Stewart, Alec "Big Al" Bauer, and band founder Tracii Guns, who calls Marty "a charismatic front man with a golden voice, incredible drive and impeccable songwriting skills."
