Justin Kaufmann and the Chicago rock band Laverne

It’s Monday night so that means we open up Studio 435 and welcome in the terrific local band Laverne! The band joins Justin to talk about how they came together, how and when they learned how to play their instruments, how listening to good music helps them write songs, the creative arrangements in their songs, enjoying trying out new material in front of a live audience, how they have evolved as a band, being considered a power-pop band and of course to play a few tunes including “A Sad Sad Chap,” “Monster of Love” and a song from their forthcoming record called, “This Winter.”

Follow Justin on Twitter and give him a like on Facebook. The Download with Justin Kaufmann airs Monday through Friday from 7 pm. to 11 pm on @WGNRadio
