Ellis Clark has been a longtime fixture of the Chicago music community working nationally as a performing musician with his band Ellis Clark & The Big Parade, as a songwriter for himself or other artists, a recording artist and record producer. As a teenager he was a founding member of the power-pop-punk pioneer band Epicycle releasing several singles and a full length LP by the time he was nineteen. Later, he co-founded & fronted Social Act who received heavy radio play, toured nationally & released numerous albums of original material.
Now, with Ary Jeebie, Amazing Heeby Jeebies garage rock band front woman, he is realizing a longtime ambition to host a George Harrison Birthday Tribute Concert at Martyrs' February 25th, 2017. This will be a night not to be missed which will have many special guests including: Mars Williams of The Psychedelic Furs, Carla Prather of Poi Dog Pondering, The Handcuffs, Phil Angotti, Rachel Drew, The Polkaholics, Maya & Paul, Aethereal, Phoenix, Gunnar Cleemann on tour from Denmark and many more! In the past, Ellis hosted (to capacity audiences) Beatles & Who tribute nights at The Mayne Stage Theatre in Rogers Park.
