Yearning for a break from the increasingly blurred line between corporate and civilian interests, and the economic duty to monetize their hobbies, Midcentury Llama was conceived by childhood friends Sam Okrent, Eric Gantner, and Frank O’Meara. While the three had played and grown together as musicians during their youth, it wasn’t until the boys all found themselves in Chicago again that they began compiling original music, enjoying tall beverages, and playing open mic nights.

Now, emboldened by the sweet licks and smooth harmonies of added members Sam Macduffie and Nick Witek (respectively) and a greater indifference towards realistic expectations, Midcentury Llama is excited and prepared.
