Dust Rays LIVE

Dust Rays is comprised of Kirk Douglas and Mark Kelley of The Roots, and Ricc Sheridan of Hard Rockers and Earl Greyhound. Douglas and Sheridan have been playing together for the past 17 years. They met in now-defunct Cafe Tabac and instantly connected over their love for Rock & Roll. Douglas played on Sheridan’s first solo record and has been Sheridan’s guitarist ever since. The enormous success of The Roots has not kept Douglas from developing new music with Sheridan. The two have been tirelessly writing and recording their upcoming album Delusions of Grandeur.

Mark Kelley joined Dust Rays in 2012 and continues to impress with his soulful and energetic bass skills. Kelley adds a warm and heavy sound to the group.

Their instrumental style mixes funk, soul, rock, and blues. Douglas’ beautiful songwriting is reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, Gypsies, Robert Johnson, and other early rock/blues pioneers. Sheridan’s spirited drumming brings to mind John Bonham, Keith Moon, Elvin Jones, and Lenny White. Mark Kelley always puts forth deep, hard-hitting grooves. He has collaborated with Mos Def, John Scofield, and Elvis Costello, among others.

Don’t miss the undeniable force of nature, Dust Rays!

John Early is a whisper that turns into thunder. What more is there to say? He was recently named one of the 50 Comedians You should Know in 2015 by New York Magazine's Vulture. He has appeared on 30 RockBroad City, and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.  


Dan Chamberlain is a veteran of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. His characters are brought to life by extreme invention and the quality of his acting. Many of his characters can be found on Funny or Die, MTV, Vice, and Above Average, where he is a staff writer.  

Annie Donley, Matt Barats, and Drennen Quinn all hail from Chicago where they performed atiO, The Second City, The Annoyance, among other theaters. They perform both sketch and improv, independently and together alongside a slew of other talented collaborators. You can catch them performing weekly at The Holy Fuck Show and as part of the Annoyance house team FrogBoys. These three take risks in ways that would make your grandmother shudder, brace herself, and then laugh.

“Basically, I challenge you - both people and companies - to explore what you do not know and achieve what do you not think you can with the knowledge of what you do know, all without the fear of failure, because I have failed so much that its made me successful, so surely if can succeed, so can you.”
