Blues Rock Bosses HEAD HONCHOS Host Open Jam at The Tender Trap

Attention Musicians: Blues-rock Bosses, HEAD HONCHOS are presently hosting an Open Jam every Thursday night at The Tender Trap, at 109 N. Halsted St. in Chicago Heights, Illinois from 7-10pm, and of course, there’s never a cover.

“We welcome all kinds of music, blues, rock, classic, bring your instrument and come jam with us, “ says HEAD HONCHOS frontman and guitarist, Rocco Calpari Sr.  “Same goes for you touring bands, come jam with your music friends”

The well-experienced, road-tested and respected HEAD HONCHOS are fronted by the father/son guitar team of Rocco Calipari Sr. and Rocco Calipari Jr.. both bad-ass axe-slingers on a mission to keep the blues alive, who make magical Blues music with their blazing, dual guitar leads. Mike Boyle on bass and Will Wyatt on drums comprise the Valparaiso, Indiana-based quartet first-rate rhythm section.

FUN FACT: Rocco Sr. is also well-known throughout the blues world his stint as longtime guitarist of Chicago blues stalwarts, Howard And The White Boys. 

Read Guitarist Rocco Calipari Sr.’s recent interview In The Chicago Tribune:

Press Commentary on HEAD HONCHOS recent release Blues Alliance (Grooveyard Records)

“A blistering, searing, scorching guitar spectacular that will leave your ears reeling for hours, even days if you’re wearing headphones or ear-buds. The band’s vocals are also far above average, both lead and backup/harmony. Blues Alliance is a shot of guitar adrenaline that’ll wake you up in the morning – or the middle of the night!


Blues Alliance is a solid album and an important reminder that subtle blues treasures often come from unheralded bands. Led by the father-son guitar duo of Rocco Calipari Sr. and Rocco Calipari Jr., the four-piece outfit stays true to their debut’s formula without sounding formulaic. It’s guitar lover’s feast.”


Blues Alliance is the consummate blues rock experience for 2020. With all the bad stuff that’s gone on this year, this album refreshes my blues- lovin’, little rock ‘n roll heart. With the Detroit-schooled musical acumen of Rocco Calipari Sr. leading the way, Blues Alliance reveals the common cause to be “Blues for a New Century!.”
