The 13th Annual Make-Out Party; "An Evening of Aural Intercourse", featuring Make Out All Stars performing originals, arrangements of film music, and other classic love themes from all around the globe.
THE MAKE-OUT PARTY is an annual event celebrating LOVE for its own sake. Transforming Chicago’s Hideout Inn into a cozy love nest, (complete with High School Prom decorations, the smell of fresh cut roses, and a rotating roster of over 30 musicians and performers), to inspire the tickle one feels in one’s stomach upon receiving a “first kiss”. Moving from Herb Alpert inspired arrangements, dirty blues ballads, film and pop classics, to transcendent “eastern” melodies, the music and performances are as varied as there are kinds of kisses, unified by one central theme - Love is Love.
MAKE-OUT ALL STARS was created by composer Jefferey Thomas and bassist Ryan Hembrey in 2005. It is an ensemble of musicians, performers, poets, and personalities handpicked for “one-night-only” performances. Make Out All Stars has included musicians from Mucca Pazza, Poi Dog Pondering, Cheer Accident, Lowdown Brass Band, Judson Claiborne, Baby Teeth, Dethholz!, a.pe.ri.od.ic, Herculaneum, Roommate, and Head of Femur. Past performers include: Cynthia Plaster Caster (artist and “recovering groupie”), Xu YuYen (guzheng virtuoso), Monica Bou Bou and Bobby Conn (art - rock evocateurs), and Josh Kantor (organist for the Boston Red Sox), to name a few.
