Chicago Rock Band Chout to Play Their First Florida Show in October
If you have never heard of the band Chout before, you soon will. The South Chicago based hard rock band has been gaining national attention over the course of the year. Some have touted the band's lead singer, Brendan Maier, as the vocal doppelganger of the late Layne Staley (Alice in Chains). The band, acclaimed for their major Alice in Chains influence, brings a fresh revival of the grunge music era that many have longed for since the likes of Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots and other bands of the 90s music scene, while adding their own unique, progressive style to it.
Formed in 2018 by vocalist Brendan Maier, guitarist Matt Morgan, bassist Rocco Gilsdorf & drummer Joel Martinez, the band members have been friends since elementary school. They have been writing songs since the age of 13, drawing influences from all realms of the musical spectrum, while remaining faithful to the 90s musical influence. The band released their first album, 'Dogwater" last August and their new EP, "Under Foreign Clouds" this past July. Both their full album & EP can be found on all streaming music platforms.
Chout has received several requests by fans to perform in various cities across the U.S. and even in South America and beyond. The band, which has not yet played a show in the Southeast, will be performing for the first time in Florida this coming October. Maverick Apparel Co. announced last month, that they were beginning to get more involved in coordinating their own shows and booking bands, and made it an effort to add Chout to the lineup for their Maverick Presents show at The Haven in Winter Park (Orlando), FL on Friday October 11th.
Maverick co-owner, Brian Paul, had this to say about the upcoming October show, "We knew when we first heard Chout's music that these guys would be going places...they are extremely talented. Being that we are based in Central FL, and have access to local venues here, we wanted to make sure that they were a part of our October show. Most fans think that bands can just go and play shows anywhere, but it's not that easy. In today's music world, it is much more difficult for bands to make enough money to justify traveling to play shows. There is a lot that goes into planning shows, logistics of booking and bands traveling out of state to play...". Paul went on to say, "These guys need the platform to gain more exposure, once you hear them you're hooked. We wanted to help them continue the momentum & grow the exposure that they have been gaining."
Maverick's October Show will also feature bands SoulSwitch (Orlando, FL), Days to Come (Albany, GA), Kill the Sound (Orlando, FL) & F.I.L.T.H. (Orlando, FL). Show details are below:
Date/Time: Friday October 11th, 2019 - Doors Open at 7pm / Show at 8pm
Location: The Haven Lounge, 6700 Aloma Ave, Winter Park, FL 32792
Tickets will be available at the door for $7 day of show
