Chicago band Spare Parts will bring its funked-up, techno-rich brand of fusion back to Rockford Friday, Dec. 15, for a show at Krypto Music Lounge.

Spare Parts is touring to support its latest release, Brain Candy, which has been the rage on national college radio since its release earlier this year. The band has also scored several tracks for independent films and commercials.

Giving true meaning to the term “fusion,” Spare Parts has been compared to Steely Dan and Weather Report, and has shared the stage with Liquid Soul, Victor Wooten and The Jazz Mandolin Project.

Spare Parts is Shane Jonas (vocals, trumpet, keys), Mike Bruno (drums, electronics), Colin Scott (bass) and Kevin Kozal (keyboards).

Show starts at 9 p.m. Additional information can be obtained by calling Krypto Music Lounge at 965-0931, or by visiting The club is at 308 W. State St. in downtown Rockford’s Stewart Square. Brain Candy is available for purchase on the band’s Web site,
