Started in 2014, the band—composed of Riley Pettrone (vocals), Pat Walsh (guitar), Frank Minella (guitar), Anthony Perry (keyboards), Donoven “Heavy” Brown (bass), and Michael Campo (drums)—has been combining catchy and mesmerizing vocals with funky, feel-good grooves, creating a unique sound that defies genre. Beyond funk and jam music, The North 41 throws dashes of soul, R&B, jazz, and hip-hop into the mix, creating a silky-smooth space for fans to let loose and dance to their infectious tunes.In 2015, The North 41 released their first LP, Dancing & Praying, which was broadcasted nationwide on various college radio stations. The band has headlined and packed some of Chicago’s favorite venues and festivals, including House of Blues, Lincoln Hall, and Chicago Ale Festival in Grant Park, in addition to performing alongside Roosevelt Collier’s Super Jam, Here Come The Mummies, The Main Squeeze, Magic Beans, and more. The North 41 are anxiously awaiting the release of their newest LP, World On Fire, which will be available via Apple Music and Spotify on September 14th.As drummer Michael Campo shared with us, “World On Fire is really a collection of love songs, but not in any cheesy sort of way.  The songs are mostly fun funk songs that will hopefully get people dancing and feeling good.”Live For Live Music is proud to premiere The North 41’s first single and title track off their forthcoming album, “World On Fire”. The psychedelia-drenched music video perfectly complements the band’s easy, throwback vibe, highlighted by Pettrone’s sultry vocals and the band’s tight groove and stellar harmonies.
