Photoside Cafe is an aggressive, acoustic, rock band from Chicago, IL that is most often compared to the likes of Dave Matthews with an edgier sound.

The foursome met at Greenville College, a school noted for its music program, and  have already created a solid fan base throughout the Midwest; playing on multiple stages in such notable music festivals as Ichthus Fest and Cornerstone Festival. They have shared the stage with several rising artists including Toby Mac, Relient K, and Switchfoot.

The chemistry within the group is outstanding, and it shines onstage. Each member brings elite individual talent into the mix, making the final product the perfect combination of talent and creativity. With their blazing songs and lyrics, Photoside Cafe blends all the right elements to create an ambiance that is nothing short of remarkable.




"The crowd loved this band, our staff loved this band... YOU will love this band!"

Kevin Newton

Festival Director for Unity Festvial 2010


"Once again Photoside did a fabulous job at Cornerstone Festival this summer.  For the first time we gave them a spot on our Mainstage and they didn't disappoint.  this band continues to impress me with their musicianship, stage presence, and attitudes (and after 38 years in the music business I have grown pretty picky).  I can't wait to work with them again next summer.  I highly recommend this group and I am confident  you and your crow will love them."

-John Herrin

Festival Director of Cornerstone Festival 2010


"Photoside Cafe is an Ichthus Festival favorite.  They have a great sound that appeals to a wide audience-- but it doesn't blend in with all the rest.  They have a great sound with thoughtful lyrics.  And they're great musicians who always leave the audience wanting more.  We've become big fans of Photoside Cafe and believe you will too."
