ABOUT THE bands
Our Lawyers Rock Reception will feature two Hall of Fame bands from our classic Lawyers Rock event! Be sure to vote for your favorite to help them win the coveted "Fan Favorite" award.
The Thornes are a group primarily composed of fathers of children who attend (or have attended) Hawthorne Scholastic Academy, a Chicago Public Magnet school located in the shadow of Wrigley Field, the home of the World Champion Chicago Cubs. At one time, the band had 14 children attending the school at the same time!
The band is comprised of a group of talented musicians all of whom played (or still play) with Chicago area bands, including three lawyers: bassist Joe Gagliardo, a Judge on the Illinois Court of Claims; horns Steve Schneck, Of Counsel with Miner, Barnhill and Galland (and noted jazz musician); and drummer Peter Birnbaum, the President of Attorneys' Title Guaranty Fund and Chief Justice of the Illinois Court of Claims. Bob Barnett, Louie Kritikos, and Jeff Moster complete The Thornes.
The primary mission of the band is to combine our love of music with fundraising for causes of special interest to us such as Hawthorne School and the Illinois Bar Foundation. The band has played in several great venues such as Adler Planetarium, Lincoln Park Zoo, Buddy Guys, The Double Door and Schuba's. The Thornes have been privileged to play with and as the opening act for a number of great bands and musicians, most notably Big Head Todd and the Monsters. The band has previously competed in Lawyers Rock, winning both the "Best Band" and "Fan Favorite" Awards and they’re looking to bring another win home this year!
Flood Waters got together in 2014, and all members live in Elmhurst, Illinois. The band feels strongly about giving back, so it does the vast majority of its gigs for charity - doing good for the world while having fun and making music! Flood Waters’ two “lawyer members”, Amy Manning & Morgan Moran, practiced together in the same firm when they were baby lawyers.
Flood Waters performed at their first Lawyers Rock in 2016, winning the Fan Favorite Award, and they are excited to be back for more! Flood Waters is: Amy Manning, Chair of Antitrust, Trade and Commercial Litigation at McGuireWoods LLP - Vocals, Drums; Morgan Moran, Assistant General Counsel at Astellas Pharma - Bass; Amy McConnell - Vocals; Brian Mehta - Drums, Vocals; Michael Stavridis - Guitar; Joe Spedale - Guitar; and Andy Demotte- Keys, Guitar
