Home Cookin’ Band started performing in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago in 2018.
The band’s founders, bassist, Kevin Lahvic and drummer, Jeff Gilbert, were members of Matthew Morgan & the Lost Brigade, a band that headlined in the Chicago clubs for nearly a decade.
Lead-singer, Anastasiya Protasevych, relocated to Chicago from the city of Lviv in Western Ukraine in 2017. Her vocal style reflects her thorough knowledge of American Blues and Classic Rock music along with her love of Ukrainian folk music. Her vocal style also reminds the listener of her strong European influences such as The Cranberries. Anastasiya also plays rhythm guitar and piano for the band.
Lead guitarist, Michael Costelloe, crosses genres from blues to rock to pop, jazz and country.
