Sonia Dada, an eclectic, exciting genre-bending rock & roll group, was born in the spring of 1990. Like their labelmates the Freddy Jones Band, they are based in Chicago. The members take their songwriting inspiration from their experiences in that city as well as on the road. One day in 1990, songwriter-guitarist Dan Pritzker got off a subway train and heard the three-part harmonies of Michael Scott, Paris Delane, and Sam Hogan. Pritzker had already been working with a group that consisted of his longtime friends -- guitarist Dave Resnik, drummer Hank Guaglianone, and bassist Erik Scott. The three singers joined the quartet, and Sonia Dada had a new lineup: Paris Delane, Sam Hogan, and Michael Scott on vocals, plus the original four. Shortly after they began rehearsing in earnest, they added keyboardist Chris "Hambone" Cameron.
