Reverend Horton Heat and Foghat will headline the other two nights of the festival which will also offer sunrise/sunset hot air balloon rides, 40 unique crafters selling their wares, 50 food vendors, 100 activities for kids, and a carnival of rides and games provided by Wilson’s Family Show.
To promote his Eyes To The Skies appearance, Morrow will join the Mancow Morning Show, on 97.9 The Loop, on Friday June 30, before appearing on WGN-TV with his all-star band, which includes lead guitarist Carlos Calvo, a Hollywood Film & TV Coach who’s taught Adam Levine, David Duchovny, Ambyr Childers, Marg Helgenberger, David Oyelowo, and many others to play guitar. Rounding out the line-up are keyboardist Jason Libs, bassist Carlos Costa, and drummer Sam Aliano (Lukas Rossi, Billy Sheehan, Nuno Bettencourt, Slash).
Morrow, known for his nuanced acting on hit shows Northern Exposure (which garnered him three Golden Globe and two Emmy Award nominations), Numb3rs, American Crime Story: The People Vs OJ Simpson, Billions, Entourage, and Designated Survivor, has been co-writing songs with Calvo for several years. Writing music as an unencumbered way to express himself with, “no studios, no networks, and no negotiations,” Rob fell in love with the infinite simplicity of the song form, “You can see the beginning, middle and end on one page.”
In Calvo, Rob found a simpatico collaborator with many gifts. The two work seamlessly together creating the band’s original songs which will appear on their debut album, set for release this fall. Key tracks include the Paul McCartney-flavored “As Good As Dead,” the moody Eagles-tinged “Man With Many Names,” the soul-searing “Nobody Wins,” and the George Thorogood boogie of “Out and About,” which was featured in an episode of The Fosters.
