Since its debut in November, 2011, GIRLBAND has charmed the skinny jeans off hipsters and frat boys alike at iconic venues such as Elbo Room, Cubby Bear (Wrigleyville), and Goose Island. We've stormed the streets of Northalsted Market Days, PrideFest, Back Lot Bash, and Glenwood Arts Fest. We've catered our set list for corporate events and weddings, 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. Jaclyn Rada (the keys) conceptualized GIRLBAND, and her unparalleled passion for pop music and the keytar is still at the heart of the group.
GIRLBAND... we're like a sweatband for your soul.
