GIRLBAND is Chicago's Premier All- Female Cover Band. Pouring a unique cocktail of endless energy, musical fusion, and a stiff dose of vocals, GIRLBAND is ready to entertain any crowd. Our set list comprises of all women who rock..all the time. GIRLBAND... we're like a sweatband for your soul.
Since its debut in November, 2011, GIRLBAND has charmed the skinny jeans off hipsters and frat boys alike at iconic venues like Elbo Room and Cubby Bear (Wrigleyville). We've partied with the rest of Chicago at street fests like Northalsted Market Days and Glenwood Arts Fest. We've catered our set list for networking and corporate events, and then danced the night away at three sold out New Years' Eve events. We're ladies who rock and we're ready to roll...What can we do for you?
GIRLBAND is a group of classically trained, well educated musicians, each mastering her own craft in rock, pop, Latin, punk and disco. We are a collaborative project of the most talented and diverse female musicians in Chicago, having played within a collective 15 bands between us. Depending on the event, GIRLBAND can bring anywhere from two to eight women on stage. For the biggest events, we have two percussionists and three lead female vocalists. During dinner hours, we can entertain you with solo piano.
While our main set lists comprises of all female artists, our events are always meant to please the client. GIRLBAND has performed an all-90's night, a Fleetwood Mac tribute, and other various "themed" nights. Whenever possible, we will cater our set list to create the best experience for the crowd!
