Antenna is a five piece original rock band from Chicago with a powerful sound and Latin flare. Led by singer songwriter Rich Cantu, Antenna has graced the stage of many venues playing in lineups with Alejandra Guzman, Jarabe Depalo, Natalia Lafourcade, Ozomatli and Elefante among others. Antenna's musical style can be traced back to diverse roots combining Mexican American culture with the Chicago rock scene. Influencers range from traditional Mexican music, modern Spanish rock, progressive rock, and American and British rock of the 1960's-90's.
Since 2006 Antenna has released two full length albums, Self-titled "Antenna", and "Speed of the Day" in 2015. A third album is in the works to drop in 2017. In 2011 Rich Cantú released a soulful introspective solo album "Señor Cantu".
Antenna has maintained its original line up through the years: Rich Cantu (vocals, acoustic guitar), Mario Roldan (lead guitar), Jerry Salas (drums) and Erick Ostiguin (keyboards), with the exception of adding bass player Dan Rowley in early 2013.
