Interview with ‘STACHE Bandmembers RYAN SCHOONOVER & JAY PULLANO

STACHE band members Ryan Schoonover (lead vocalist) and Jay Pullano (rhythm guitar/vocals) discuss the groups success and their process of choosing songs from different decades/genres that integrate into a cohesive story. Stache performs Saturday, June 1 at Navy Pier’s “Live on the Lake!” Concert Series.


Stache! uses a creative blend of song arrangement and skilled musicianship to bring a unique twist to everything from today’s pop hits to the 80s rock anthems you’ve been loving for years. Stache recreates current radio hits without the use of backing tracks, and mixes them into a setlist filled with perennial rock and dance favorites from across the radio dial. As a result, Stache can bring a catered blend of music that’s perfect for your venue, festival, or private event. For a list of Stache’s upcoming concert dates visit
