Cap'n Jazz
Cap'n Jazz were an american emo/punk band formed in the early 1990's in Buffalo Grove, IL by high school friends Tim Kinsella (vocals), Victor Villareal (guitar), and Sam Zurick (bass), along with Tim's younger brother Mike (drums). The band released a couple of EPs and appeared on several local compilations before adding Milwaukee native Davey vonBohlen on second guitar in 1994. The group released their lone LP in the spring of 1995 and broke up while on tour later than summer. Members would continue music in bands like The Promise Ring, Joan Of Arc or American Football.
Fueled by some of the members post-Cap'n Jazz activities, interest in the band grew after their break up and in 1998 Jade Tree Records compiled most of their recordings (which were all out of print) on to a double-disc release.

In 2001, the original foursome of Mike, Tim, Victor, and Sam reunited and cut an album under the moniker "Owls" for Jade Tree.

In 2010, the band reunited for a series of live shows around Chicago, as well as a short, out of state tour.
