Simpleton & Cityfolk / Bio

Starting in October 2010, Simpleton & Cityfolk have grown from a casual cover band playing on Sunday afternoons in the Wisconsin Dells to a successful gigging band out of Chicago. The name originates from a long-standing joke that Geoff, being from Iowa, is a “Simpleton”, and the other guys, being from Chicago, are “Cityfolk”. Nonetheless, as their sound has grown, so has their fan base, giving S & C the opportunity to play some of the best venues in Chicago- from Double Door to Martyr's to the Hard Rock Café. The band consists of Geoff Glenn on the lead vocals/rhythm guitar, Chris Bennett on lead guitar/backing vocals, Chris “Foo” Williams on the upright bass/backing vocals, and Mike "Sku" Skowronski on the drums/backing vocals. Simpleton and Cityfolk currently reside in Chicago and have recently released their debut EP, "The Williams Account" on June 19th, 2012.
