6 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Folk Rock, ROCK: Punk
From their beginnings three years ago in Chicagoland open mics and cafes Snoozie &The Miltonics have evolved from coffehouse duo to rocking quartet. The moment they acquired a rhythm section the foursome recorded their EP, We Make Noise, and have been ripping up Chicago stages from the Beat Kitchen to the Empty Bottle.
Snoozie &The Miltonics come complete with a garage edge and
tightness that exhibits their passion for playing. Their songs will burrow into your ears for a day or two, and their clever attitude can get you giggling.
MILTON DIXON (guitar, vocals) has been making noise
for all of his life. He started playing Suzuki violin
at the age of four and as a teen was lured to the
guitar. He now teaches Suzuki guitar at The Music
Institute of Chicago and Barrington Suzuki Music
School. Somewhere along the way, he found a B.S. in
Music Business from Elmhurst College. Some of Milton''s
louder pursuits include playing jazz-fusion with The
Gretch Guitar Ensemble and Latin-pop with Contratiempo.
SUSIE INVERSO (vocals, guitar) grew up a band geek
and still is one. She began playing the trumpet at
age 10, and got her first guitar at age 14. She
studied music at Elmhurst College, like her cohorts,
and has performed in numerous concert bands, marching
bands, orchestras and jazz bands. Along with singing
and strumming with Snoozie &The Miltonics she plays
bass for Chicago electro project Flutter.
LEO PEÑA (drums) was born in the suburbs of Mexico
City. He moved to Chicago at age 15 and began playing
drums in various high school bands, exploring almost
all styles of music. Leo attended Elmhurst College and
continued experimenting musically in hip hop and acid
jazz. Leo teaches History and Spanish and has played in
the Chicago area extensively with numerous bands,
including traditional Mexican "Bandas" and Tex-Mex
groups, jazz trios, Hip Hop and pop groups, theatre, and
local cajun band "The Midway Ramblers".
CHRIS STUTZMAN (bass) also has a deep-rooted passion for
making noise. His musical adventure began with Suzuki
piano as a wee lad and meandered through saxophone,
vocal training, guitar and most recently bass. He also
attended Elmhurst College where he was involved in choir
and met his noise-making pals. Since college he has been
involved in numerous musical projects with said pals (such
as Broadcast Day). He likes many styles of music, plays
many of them and hopes he never has to stop. Amen.
