Calico Loco


Indie Rock

"With a sound described as the sonic equivalency of a bedazzled denim jacket, CalicoLoco is breaking through the Chicago music scene. Combining infectious melodies with lyrically driven noise-pop, CalicoLoco has created their own special brand of glitzy indie pop. What started out as the queer pop bedroom project of singer-songwriter Dani Robles, has now evolved into a fuzzy mix of dreamy twee pop and bubble grunge with the addition of guitarists Zeke Ramsey & Curran Chapman, bassist Sarah Dodge, and drummer Ricky Georgen."

Instrumental guitarist that has played with many local artists such as S.O.G, Zaetrell, Matt Strom, Jenny Franck, Brian Troch, Chelsea‘s Wolves and Jessie Royals just to name a few.
