Subplane formed in the Fall of 2009 and began performing regularly in Chicago’s music scene that December. Now they continue to bring music that is rhythmic and grooving combined with stellar improvisational solo jams and rich harmonic vocals to Chicago’s nightlife. Subplane will also slip in well-thought-out and fan-friendly cover songs for a complete show of familiar favorites and memorable original songs. The band’s music features various styles and influences with poetic lyrics, pop-culture references, and tales of various experiences that have graced…or plagued the lives of these musicians.
In their first year, they completed a 5 track EP, performed at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox, two times, as well as such historic venues as the Kinetic Playground, and the Double Door. They were even invited to Roseau, Minnesota to perform for former Blackhawks Defensivemen and Power Forward as well as a friend of the band, Dustin Byfuglien for his hometown Stanley Cup celebration where Lord Stanley himself was the guest of honor on stage with the quartet.
They are now excited to release a full-length debut album boasting eleven original tunes entitled Holding Pattern (2010) influenced by the band's name. The tracks on this album take you on a journey, much like that of one by air and by sea and has an ebb and flow as if riding waves and then suddenly taking flight or crashing beneath the water's surface.
