This week’s musical artist for the Rockton River Market is Minimal, a musical trio. The Rockton River Market takes place every Wednesday at Settlers Park, 150 Hawick Street in Rockton. Music starts at 6:00 p.m.

Despite their name, Minimal is artistically complex.  Their playlist includes songs from Led Zeppelin, Crosby Stills & Nash, and Black Sabbath, but also from Post Malone, Justin Bieber, and Breaking Benjamin. Bassist and vocalist Greg DeCarlo said, "We are a true variety band." They have won at least 15 awards from the Rockford Area Music Industry (RAMI) organization, including Best New Act in 2015. This year, the band played at Old Settlers Days on June 16. Zach DeCarlo, the lead singer, also plays drums. He told Good Day Stateline, "If Robert Plant sang for Maroon 5, that's probably what we sound like." 

Greg and Zach asked Leanne Leonard (vocals and guitar) to join their band when they saw she was going to beat them in a talent contest. The band has entertained at many venues over the years: at Mulligan's, Tad's on the Rock, and Louie's Tap House, but also Onyx Bar and Grill, Fozzy's, Stockyard Rock Burger Bar, and Rascal's Bar & Grill.
