Heisenberg Uncertainty Players
Chicago based big band
Heisenberg Uncertainty Players (HUP) is a 17-piece Chicago-area big band, playing only
original compositions and arrangements from the members of the group. Formed in 2011,
the band has been featured around the Chicago area in venues like Martyrs’, Fitzgerald’s
Nightclub, The Logan Center for the Arts, and WGN-TV. They have arranged a wide variety of
music, ranging from jazz standards and showtunes to versions of songs by Radiohead,
Arcade Fire, 50 Cent, and other pop/rock artists.
With help from generous supporters, HUP produced its debut album, Emergency Postcards.
The album features seven original works, with elements of funk, latin jazz, hip-hop, Classical,
and swing. EP is available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby; physical CDs can be purchased
