Meet Dot Dot Dot, an unparalleled pop-rock band with spectacular chemistry that continually delivers a supercharged show which speaks directly to the hearts of everyone. Created in 2007 when select members of two well-known Chicago-based bands joined forces to create a distinctive and dynamic live act, the group immediately captured national attention as a finalist on FOX TV's "American Idol" spin-off show, "The Next Great American Band."

High-profile shows followed, including appearances at the Sundance Film Festival, a VH1 Save the Music benefit, events for WGN, T-Mobile, the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, the Chicago Blackhawks, and dozens more. One of the group's largest honors came when it was invited to perform at the 2010 Presidential rally in Chicago. A steady, almost ruthless, schedule of touring and performing has shaped Dot Dot Dot into a seasoned, professional act?one that has 600 shows in four years to its credit.

The group regularly performs dates nationwide at night clubs, festivals, college parties, concert halls, weddings and private events. Dot Dot Dot also demonstrates an ability to handle a stunning variety of music with equal skill. It is not often that you hear a band follow up a popular classic like "Sweet Caroline" with punk-pop 80s staple "Take On Me" and then move seamlessly into a current hit such as "Poker Face." Every member takes a turn fronting the band, concerned less with imitation and more with infusing each song with stimulating and imaginative originality.

The band is a co-ed quintet, thriving on each other's complementary talents. Whether it's Adam's intense attentiveness to the audience, Little Lisa's onstage acrobatics, Michael's keytar solos, Rose's guitar prowess, or Marty's relentless pacing, the circus-like nature of the shows makes for an evening of nonstop fun. Audiences remain glued to the show and often comment on Dot Dot Dot's fantastic balance of musicality, entertainment, and above all, energy.

Dot Dot Dot also writes and records original material and has licensed several songs for national ad campaigns (Party City/Factory Card Outlet, Florida Gators, Kentucky Derby, Jeep, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution). The band's music is available at, iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and elsewhere.
