Sean and the Distractions / Bio

Sean and Distractions is made up of four suburban Chicago guys who are rock stars (in their own mind.) We play songs that we love and occasionally manage to find the time to write our own stuff. The band has been together for about three years. Artists we also like include, but are not limited to: Elvis Costello, Wilco, Nick Lowe, The Who, Marshall Crenshaw, The Only Ones, The Posies, R.E.M., Green Day and U2.
