About the Awfully Good

The Awfully Good started with a simple idea: take slow, sappy, and soft rock covers (and some downright awful tunes) and give them a kick in the pants with an upbeat rock edge to make them good! The Awfully Good doesn’t hold back—no genre or decade is sacred.

The female fronted band reimagines songs from The Beatles to Lady Gaga, and Bryan Adams to Bruno Mars. Their unique sound gives new life to these sleepy covers, with a high-energy hard rock tone complemented by melodic vocals. Always recognizable—never duplicated. And absolutely no backing tracks. That’s what the Awfully Good calls ballistic ballads.

About John Measner

John Measner is a classically trained magician and skilled manipulator with many mystifying illusions. He is a graduate of the Chavez Studio of Magic and a member of several prestigious magic organizations. John has performed on Chicago’s own “Bozo Show,” cable TV talk shows, and dazzled audiences at popular festivals. He will thrill you with everything—from card-and-coin magic to illusions such as Houdini’s famous Metamorphosis. From close-up magic to a classic illusion show, John has the tricks that all will enjoy.
