In Bed With
Sidewalk Chalk

Sidewalk Chalk is an evolution of hip hop, soul and jazz—a six-piece band rolling deep in Midwest Funk, a group who's shared the stage with Questlove, De La Soul and Action Bronson. Their music will make your feet tap-tap-tap, make your body move with every strike of the keys and blast of the horn—bright, expressive, soulful and every bit as wonderful as the people who make it. 

Meet Rico Sisney (MC), Maggie Vagle (Vocals), Charlie Coffeen (Keys) and David Ben-Porat (Trombone) as they share their favorite things with you.
