Sunnyside Up is a three-piece Chicago string band that draws in listening audiences with an expertly crafted mixture of bluegrass, swing, fiddle music, and songwriting. At the dawn of the 21st century when new musical labels like Alt-Country and Americana were young, these guys got the bug to put together an alt-string band. Cathy Godfrey from Trib Local says “Sunnyside Up rivals any of the headliner bluegrass bands that I saw at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival” and columnist/barndance caller Eric Zorn says "…amazingly good music. I've called to hundreds of bands over the years and [Sunnyside Up] is something special.”
