GIRLBAND is like a sweatband… for your soul. Comprised of the most talented and diverse female musicians in the Chicagoland area, GIRLBAND combines pop, rock, Latin and punk roots to create new twists to your favorite songs. Our shows are non-stop, energetic, and downright fun.
GIRLBAND is Chicago’s Premier All- Female Cover Band, pouring a unique cocktail of endless energy, musical fusion, and a stiff dose of vocals. From Dolly Parton to Rhianna, we’ve had neurosurgeons high kicking their shoes onto the stage, college girls strutting the catwalk and men unleashing their inner Mick Jagger. Got a Birthday?…we’ve got plans for you. Sing-a-longs?…we’ll have the audience doing rounds. Staff your best bartender who can keep up with our pace, as the crowd will be begging for a 3rd and 4th encore. Rocker boots, check. Glittery high heels, check. Don’t be surprised if your mom shows up with her hair down, because she secretly loves us too!
