The members of the Chicago rock 'n roll band American Grizzly say they don’t really dream of best-selling albums and sold-out concerts. Instead, the band of Western Michigan University grads say their strategy is just to play shows and see what happens. So far, they say, it’s worked. In just a few short years, the band has gradually grown bigger, and now they’re releasing their debut album, funded completely through friends and fans.
