The Low Tide Trio
Last November, The Low Tide Trio—LeRoy Bach, Matt Lux, and Dave Hilliard—reunited to begin a new monthly gig highlighting a rotation of Chicago-based musicians. In the past, Low Tide has invited singers Tina Howell, Khari Lemuel, Darrell Lewis, and percussionist Dan Bitney of Tortoise to take the stage. Low Tide’s music is an improvisational blend of genres like psychedelic rock, funk, and reggaeton. Though its sets can sometimes prove difficult to navigate, Low Tide’s efforts to shed light on occasionally ignored Chicago talent, bring back acoustic dance music, and get the dance floor popping always yield a good time.
