Founded in 1978 by Professor Paul Phillips, the group uses tuned bottles to play everything from Bach to the blues. The band has been heard on National Public Radio and seen on Wild Chicago, the NBC Evening News, America's Got Talent, and twice on The Late Show with David Letterman. The bottle band also performed at major Lutheran church conferences and with local symphony orchestras.
