"Like pouring gasoline on a bonfire," says Steve Ehlers, lead singer of Urban Sprawl when asked to describe how the band sounds, "It might not be the greatest idea, but it makes for a good time, and an even better story!" As a Chicagoland premier rock band, Urban Sprawl offers a unique and high energy experience rooted in danceable music. From the first chord, Ehlers booming vocals sets the tone for the band's high octane performances. "We want you on the dance floor." adds bass player Ken Vercellotti.

Urban Sprawl's roots stem from drummer Carter Szok, and guitarist Neal Rudink's ambition to form a rock band. "We grew up listening to absolutely everything," notes Szok. From classic/hard rock, alternative and blues to pop, folk, and country, the band draws inspirations from variety of influences.
"We sell a good time," Rudnik sums up, "and we'll play pretty much whatever will keep people up and dancing."
