Homegrown Residency is a monthly residency offering emerging Chicago musicians a fertile bed to plant their roots and grow. Selected emerging musicians test their new material, reveal their ongoing process and are joined by hand picked guests as listeners enjoy beer from Greenstar Brewery, the first all organic brewery in IL, and food from the first 4-star restaurant with a certified organic rooftop farm in the U.S.!

January present: LeftJones with guests Sydney Jay , Shawnee Dez , and LeXuS !

LeftJones is a collective blending jazz, hip hop, poetry and rap, comprised of nine friends and family members: Kenneth Leftridge (sax), Alfonzo Jones (drums), Jeremy Jones (bass) Terry Patrick, Bobby Cooper (trumpet), and M.E.R.C (make every rhyme count) rapping. Their roots began at NIU, where members studying classical and jazz started performing hip hop shows on campus called “Free Lunch”. LeftJones are often seen across Chicago as the bedrock for other musicians, such as Shawnee Dez or Matt Muse and now they're ready to grow into their own home at Uncommon Ground for this four week residency.
