It's cool to be here at the US Open. I used to play tennis. I mean I wasn’t amazing, but I got, like, third in-state my senior year.

Midland

Midland put on a lively performance at the Chase Lounge in the historic Chicago Theatre. We learned about the trio and their life on tour during a night to remember in the Windy City!

Close Transcript

Side note:

Country rock music plays.

On screen:

Iconic Chicago locations flash by, including the Wrigley Building, the Star of Chicago tour ship on Lake Michigan, and the legendary Chicago Theater with a marquee reading: "Chase Sound Check. Midland. November 6."

Man:

We are at the Chicago Theater. And we’re doing Chase Sound Check in the Windy City, the place where Ferris Bueller took a day off.

On screen:

A montage shows members of the country band "Midland" with members: Cameron Duddy (a bearded man with brown eyes), Mark Wystrach (a man with a brown beard and blue eyes), and Jess Carson, (a man with long, straight hair). Then, inside the theater, the trio walks down a large flight of carpeted stairs. Cameron leaps off the staircase, rolls across the floor, and springs back up into a casual strut.

Side note:

They all laugh heartily.

Jess:

He’s spry.

Side note:

Whimsical music plays.

Text on screen:

Midland. Presented by Chase Sound Check.

On screen:

The band walks through the inside of the ornate Chicago Theater, with its large stain glass windows, crystal chandeliers, and decorative relief wall sculptures.

Cameron:

Oh my god, it’s like straight outta Ghostbusters or something.

Cameron, Mark, and Jess:

Wow.

OK, this is really incredible.

Look at that.

Oh my goodness.

On screen:

The guys look at the theater's huge classical ceiling murals.

Mark:

This is as beautiful as the Sistine Chapel.

On screen:

The guys continue touring the theater.

Cameron:

What you call that kind of ceiling where its--

Jess:

Wedding cake.

On screen:

They look up at the ceiling, which is a white plastered pattern of three-dimensional squares and long hexagons with gold edges.

Cameron:

Wedding cake? It’s very Fitzgeraldian. Almost like Dickensian, but it’s a different guy.

On screen:

Cameron and Mark sit on a long plush maroon sofa, by a small round marble table. Jess playfully pretends to be a waiter.

Jess:

What can I get you this evening?

On screen:

The guys stand on a balcony, overlooking the enormous Neo Baroque auditorium and stage.

Jess:

This style is indicative of the late 1990s.

Mark:

Jess, 1890s.

Jess:

I mean 1890s.

Text on screen:

(Actually, 1920s…)

On screen:

A montage shows more of The Chicago Theater's magnificent interior, with its white marble columns stretching up two stories, ornate ceilings with splendid chandeliers, and colorful stained-glass windows. Next, a close-up of Jess.

Jess:

Actually, Chicago made so much stuff here. They made probably 95% of the pianos that were produced in America around the time this place was built. And those instruments mostly are around today. They used to made things to last. And we try to make music to last.

On screen:

One of the theater's marble balconies features a large monitor screen displaying a picture of the band and the text: "Chase Sound Check. Midland. November 6. 7:00 PM."

Cameron:

We’ve played shows large and small, from theaters like this to arenas to stadiums with Garth Brooks. But we started in the Honkytonks.

On screen:

The guys tune their guitars.

Cameron:

It’s, in a way, sometimes riskier to play smaller rooms than it is big rooms because there’s nowhere to hide.

On screen:

A montage shows the guys walking through a door marked: "Chase Lounge." Next, a set list from Midland's 2019 "Let it Roll" Tour, and then, the band tuning up for a rehearsal.

Cameron:

The cool thing that Chase has done with an evening like this with the Sound Check is that they’re putting the fans in a very close proximity to the band. I mean there’s no running away.

On screen.

The guys stand together in the theater.

Cameron:

We’re playing under this venue.

Mark:

I’m a Chase cardholder. Here’s Cameron Duddy--

Cameron:

This is how close you get to be.

Mark:

This is what it’s gonna be like tonight.

On screen:

Mark gets right up next to Cameron, towering over him completely in his "personal space."

Mark:

What’s up man?

Cameron:

Wow.

Mark:

I’m a big fan.

Cameron:

And he is big.

Jess:

But you have to perform.

Mark:

It’s gonna be that intimate.

Cameron:

Watch this.

On screen:

Cameron starts playing an "air guitar." Meanwhile, Mark really gets close to Cameron, now - about an inch from his face. Mark whispers seductively into Cameron’s ear.

Mark:

Damn, you’re playing good right now.

Side note:

Mark blows into Cameron’s ear.

Cameron:

Oh my god. And you know what? I’m loving it.

Side note:

Banjo music plays and the guys laugh.

On screen:

Backstage, the guys prepare for the show: Jess adjusts his jacket in front of a mirror and Mark reviews the set list on his laptop.

Jess:

Life on the road, man. It’s a grind, it’s a lot of work. We try to keep it light, try to keep it positive, take care of each other and…work hard, play hard.

Side note:

Country music plays.

On screen:

Outside, at night, the enormous four-story "Chicago" sign lights up.

Mark:

It’s really wild on the second album, Let it Roll. Seen the response and seen the fanbase growing. You can feel the energy, you can feel the momentum of this band kind of shaping right in front of your eyes. And we’ve been working our tails off. It feels really good.

On screen:

A montage shows Midland's fans dancing, posing for photos with the band, meeting band members, and getting autographs.

Song:

Mr. Lonely, Mr. Good-Time
Mr. One-You're-Gonna-Want-On-A-Saturday-Night
When you're lonely.

On screen:

Midland's audience claps and take pictures during the show.

Mark:

We get paid to travel and be away from our family and our homes - But playing music we’d do it for free. And that really is the gift. We’ve got a lot to be excited about.

On screen:

Stage lights flash as Midland plays a high energy show at the Chase Sound Check concert.

Song:

The one and only, Mr. Lonely

Long live the blues.

On screen:

Mark tosses his guitar pick out into the audience and then tips his tan cowboy hat.

Mark:

Seriously, we love you guys. We’ll see you next time. Chase Bank, thank you guys for having us out here.

On screen:

The band bows together in unison.

Text on screen:

Chase Sound Check. Midland. The Chicago Theater. Presented by Chase.
