MG BAILEY | FREE

August 19, 2022 from 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

Starting as a one man band 10 years ago, MG has performed weekly in the Chicago land area and surrounding states. Performing at venues ranging from backyard parties to Chicago classics like Metro. MG brings a full sound and unique approach that can catch an audience off guard in the best way. Lots of laughs and crowd interaction that have kept the drinks flowing and the toes tapping. MG Bailey has performed in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming.   

“I’m a one-man band,” he admits, “but I’m trying to lose that image. I’m making these one-man band records for now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t compose songs for a full band, or add a horn section. I feel more of a kinship with punk bands and old blues musicians than with most people who fall under the ‘one-man band’ label.”

Indeed, M.G. Bailey stands out based on sheer, undeniable authenticity. Upon seeing him perform, there is no doubt that his complicated setup of pedals and processors and drums and jangly things is only onstage with him because it’s the most effective way he’s found to express his songs and furthermore, there is no doubt that the songs take center stage.
